Date parution :

Joyful, witty and laugh-out-loud funny, this is a novel for anyone who loved THE ROSIE PROJECT and SLEEPLESS IN SEATTLE.

Don't tell anyone, but Jen is one of my favourite people.

(Machines aren't supposed to have favourites. Don't ask me how this has happened.)

Jen is sad. Aiden wants her to be happy. Simple? Except that Jen is a thirty-something woman whose boyfriend has just left her and Aiden is a very complicated, very expensive piece of software.

Aiden has calculated that Jen needs a man in her life for optimum wellbeing. And with the whole of the internet at his disposal, he doesn't have to look far to find a perfect specimen and engineer a meeting. But what, exactly, makes human beings happy? And can a very-artificially-intelligent machine discover emotional intelligence in time to fix Jen's life?

Donnez votre avis

So funny, clever and timely. I loved it. — Martha Kearney

Very clever and great fun — Kate Eberlen, bestselling author of Miss You

It's refreshing to read such a positive, funny and warm story about the potential of artificial intelligence. These computer programs don't want to destroy humanity, they want to watch soppy films and help people fall in love. This is Jane Austen's Emma for the digital era. — Keith Stuart, bestselling author of A Boy Made of Blocks

You'll love this quirky, brilliantly funny love story... If you use Siri, Alexa or Google Assistant, prepare to have your heart warmed - and be a little bit scared! — Fabulous

A smart, warm fiction and the ultimate curl-up read... the most charming book I've read in ages — Image

A sweet romantic comedy that asks what it really means to be happy (and also takes a gentle look at the scary idea of technology taking over our lives) — Stylist

Bridget Jones' diary for the digital age — Daily Record

This screwball comedy is touching and hilarious — Sunday Mirror

One of the most uplifting and romantic novels I've read in a long time — Sarra Manning, Red magazine

Humans
meets The Rosie Project . . . A real smiler of a book — Nina Pottell, Prima

Fun, romantic, original, with a clever and sinister twist — Fanny Blake, Woman and Home

reads a bit like a Richard Curtis screenplay adapted from the works of Arthur C Clarke... Clever but unpretentious, this book is both a light-hearted confection that will leave you with a warm glow and a chilling vision of things to come — Jake Kerridge, Sunday Express

An original and thought-provoking little gem — Sunday Sport

A sort of Shakespearean comedy of errors but instead of the gods there are rogue AIs seeking to meddle in the affairs of humans. Great fun. — The Bookseller

One of the most unique love stories ever written, this novel blends the ethereal concepts of true love and fate with a thoughtful examination of the risks and worries of artificial intelligence. — RT Book Reviews

A frothy rom-com in literary form...a broad and madcap love story...charming — Kirkus Reviews

This clever novel will appeal to David Nicholls fans. It's witty and great fun — Daily Mail

I am by no means alone in thinking that this funny, madcap romp for the digital-age, featuring believably flawed characters (not all human), deserves to be a hit. Rights have been sold in 26 territories and Working Title and Fox 2000 have a Film option on what could be Sleepless in Seattle meets The Lobster. One of the factors in its favour is that, like David Nicholls' One Day or Graeme Simsion's The Rosie Project, it should appeal to male and female readers. — Sunday Times
