His Robot Girlfriend - Latest Reader Reviews

What readers are saying online about His Robot Girlfriend?

At Barnes and Noble

Merrikat Blackwood: This book was a fun read and not very long. It's about a man who finds himself wanting more and gets it. I have downloaded tons of free books and this is one of the few so far that I have enjoyed.

Thank you. I’m glad you liked it.

Vedus: There are inklings of an interesting plot in here that never really come to fruition. There are hinted at possibilities and the world occasionally comes crashing in but that's where it ends. The title spells out what this entire book is about. Readers approaching this should bear that in mind. The relationship stars directly up front and the book suffers for it. The more plot minded will reach the final page and likely wonder what happened to the proper ending. It more stops than reaches a completion point, the byproduct of a tenuous plot.

Hmm. Well, okay.

Allison: This was seriously one of the worst books i have ever read. I felt like i was reading an extended fan fiction where the author inserted himself in a story and forgot what he was doing in it. Half the book is talking about the main character being pleasure (sic) by his robot, and then how he got to dress her up however he wanted. The other half was about how jealous everyone was of his robot. The plat (sic) was basically non-existent. What a waste.

There you go. Not for everyone, especially people who identify themselves with a small i.

Footballguy24: Greatest Book I’ve Read This Year. Love the Ending.


Mzmelody808: The 5 star review could’ve only been written by the author himself. Seeing that this is a free book your expectations will be low, let me warn you to lower those expectations even further. This is nothing but an old man’s diluted sexual fantasy about having the perfect woman without any moral consequences.

Is it sad that I think the worst part about this review is “old man?” If you’re going to write a book, you’ve got to have a thick skin I guess. At least I’m not singing on YouTube or selling crappy online jewelry.

FrenchyfryTTR3: The story itself was good, but there are some plot holes and numerous typographical errors.

Sorry about the typoes. I’m working on a new edit right now.

Doublebubba: Sorry but this reads as if it were written by a twelve year old. Free, so you get what you pay for but if your time has any value it might not be worth the time you’ll waste. And yes, I confess that I was not able to make it all the way through.

Sorry you didn’t like it. It’s not really much of an insult as many of my 12 year old students are great writers. By the way, it should be “it reads as if it was.” It’s singular.

Chemistry76: Quick and fun narrative. I enjoyed this novel.


Devkap: This is a quick easy read with an intriguing concept and likable characters. So much more could have been done with it but if you have time to kill and want something light, it will probably hold your interest.

Thanks. I agree that the characters are superior to the plot.
