Rabbit & Robot Reviews

    Last weekend we were in New Orleans to celebrate my husband’s dad’s birthday. Coincidentally, ALA was also going on at the same time and I kept thinking maybe I’d run into some of my library people while about town, but I never did.

    Last weekend we were in New Orleans to celebrate my husband’s dad’s birthday. Coincidentally, ALA was also going on at the same time and I kept thinking maybe I’d run into some of my library people while about town, but I never did.

    THANKFULLY, however, my husband did happen to run into Andrew Smith in the airport as we were waiting to fly home, and, being approximately a billion times less socially awkward than I am, he apparently actually managed to say coherent words in Smith’s presence and also received the last arc of this book that Smith had brought with him. Then he came back to where I was sitting and said, "you’re gonna be mad, but...as I was coming out of the bathroom I ran into Andrew Smith..." and I was like, "WHAT."

    Anyway, I very much was mad. And jealous. And was like, "but...you’re gonna let me read this first, right???" And then Andrew Smith walked by where we were sitting and came over to say hi since my husband had told him I’d be mad. And he asked my name and said, "nice to meet you," and I almost started to remind him that I’ve met him before and that I’m that weirdo whose friends had him take a photo with a dorky picture of me on their phone that one time (haha, Ramarie and Ashley, you’re still the best!), and then the next year at Texas Teen Book Festival I made him take a picture with me holding up my phone with that photo of him with the picture of me on the screen (he was like, "Um. This is a new one..."), but I stopped myself and just did the regular socially awkward thing instead and basically just blacked out.

    Blah blah blah, I’ve just been basking in the glow of our very fortunate timing (our flight got cancelled like five minutes later) and my husband’s superior talking-to-people abilities and how amazingly nice Andrew Smith is all week. While I read this book first.

    And...and...and...um...okay, so, I’m definitely still processing it. Like in all of Smith’s books, the characters are wonderful—sad and funny and flawed and beautiful—and a lot is being said without ever exactly being spelled out. And it’s weird and wacky and dark and...so very human. And the story behind Billy Hinman! Ha!

    I really do love Shaun David Hutchinson’s statement that it’s “Andrew Smith at his Andrew Smithiest.” If you’re familiar with Grasshopper Jungle and The Marbury Lens and The Alex Crow, you maybe know a little what to expect.

    I’m planning to listen to the audio as soon as that’s available (arghhhhh, months from now!!!), and in the meantime will probably reread this copy again because it’s been too long between Andrew Smith books and the withdrawal has been hard. Very, very hard!

    I guess I’d better let my husband read it before I do that though, since it’s his book and all!

    Sighhhhhh...

    There are so many things going on in this book that I I'm going to need some time to think about them before I can write a coherent review. This book is more than inappropriate erections and day-of-the-week underwear and cannibal robots. It is, to me, an indictment of the single-mindedness of our social media culture, a discussion about the future, and a peek into who we are and who we might become. I'm not sure I agree with R&R's worldview, but I absolutely see it's point of view, and think

I'm not sure I agree with R&R's worldview, but I absolutely see it's point of view, and think there's some really great and thoughtful insight here, as well as a fun story. It's Andrew Smith at his Andrew Smithiest, and I'm always here for it.

    Thank you NetGalley and Simon & Schuster Canada for this DRC!

    This book was absolutely ridiculous.

    It was like breeding the space opera genre with Beavis and Butt-Head to make some weird and funny book baby. Somehow that strange mashup worked extremely well.

    P.S.

    Amazing and disgusting and one of my favorite books of all time

  • Maria (Big City Bookworm)

    This was truly one of the weirdest books I've ever read...and I loved it.

    Cheepa yeep!

    First of all, a friend won this as a Goodreads Giveaway. I'm providing an honest review of it.

    Secondly, that's some pretty BA cover art.

    Third, I'm going to say that this book is just Andrew Smith. It's wacky, it's full of teenagers being teenagers, has a talking giraffe, and even has some deep ideas about what makes humans human. :)

    I kept waiting for some deeper meaning to appear underneath the drug haze, gallons of robot mucus, erections, and mood swings, and I was ultimately disappointed. Certainly there are messages here about consumerism and the sort of "us vs. them" closed-minded ignorance that humans seem to specialize in, but it wasn't enough for me. I wanted the ending to reveal its cards with a punch to the gut, but instead I was left confused and muttering..."Well, DUH."

    Where

    felt weird in an interesting and unique way, this felt repetitive and kind of silly. It's absolutely possible that I missed something here.

    A more meaningful (even fifteen years later) read-alike is

    A wild ride!

    I like Andrew's crazy so count me in.

    And that's a badass cover.
