My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Fascinating, indefinable and stupendous are the words that come to my mind while thinking of this novel. The book lures the readers into its pages and story from chapter one and crips them there until the last page.
Tim Scott is an innovative genius in the robotic industry. After his wife’s disappearance, full of grief – Tim invests all his time and power into bringing his wife back. And he succeeds.
Abbie and Tim’s romance began shortly after her arrival in Scotts Robotics. And just as fast the two have tied the knot. Their family was extended with the same speed. However, this time the couple was hit by an obstacle – their beloved son was diagnosed with autism. This put a heavy string on the couple’s marriage. And shortly after another tragedy struck Scott’s family – Abbie’s disappearance.
Fast forward five years – we are introduced to a new, shiny and in all words “perfect” Abbie the cobot. Tim’s perfect wife is back in her full glory. But one question still remains unanswered – what has happened to “real” Abbie.
“The Perfect Wife” is an exhilarating novel, full of thrilling secrets and new innovations. I was mesmerized by a human vs robot theme. Thank you, NetGalley and Ballantine Books Publishers for a free advanced copy of the book, and J.P. Delaney for a phenomenal story.
