Rating: 4.0 – an interesting take on humanity

Opinion: This was an interesting book. I picked it from a monthly book subscription I’m a part of. This book looked the most interesting. I was pleasantly surprised on how good this book was. It’s a different take on what it means to be human and what makes us human. I liked the idea that the author posed at the end of the book. He talked about kindness versus intelligence versus apathy. It made sense in the world we live in today. It was more thought provoking than I expected. I do agree with what the author said at the end. There are some technical parts but are explained immediately and easily. I enjoyed seeing both sides of the argument presented in a more logical manner. This is a great book for anyone looking for something different to read. I recommend this book for anyone who likes science fiction and a more thought provoking ideas.
