Rabbit and Robot by Andrew Smith
Review by: Ivy
On Sale Now!
Andrew Smith knocks it out of the park with a fantastically weird and strangely philisophical sci-fi masterpiece. Chronically the journey of a Woz-addicted teen when his friend and caretaker interventionally take him on a trip to the Tennesee, a giant space cruise ship yet to open for business. When it seems like the world may have ending as soon as they left, and the robots onboard start to eat each other, previously mentioned main character Cager and friends have to grapple with their own humanity, and the humanity of the androids around them.

- “That’s really what all books are, isn’t it? I mean, lists of secrets and things you only wish you’d done – a sort of deathbed confession where you’re trying to get it all out while the lights are still on.”
- “Again, for the record, let me restate: you can’t be rude to a coffee grinder and only an idiot would thank it for pulverizing beans. But you could, and probably should, unplug it if it doesn’t shut up.”
- “If it’s impossible to understand how I could kick a weeping, torn-in-half cog that was gushing something that look like tapioca pudding and whale semen on my nice shiny space suit, then you’ve probably never kicked a car for getting a flat tire, or slapped a television remote when the batteries were getting weak, in which case you’ll never understand what it means or meant to be a human.”
