I have been eyeing this science fiction novel for the past month after reading a review of it. A few days ago the kindle version was only a few dollar cheaper than the physical book version, but they dropped the price. If you are into robots story you might want to check it out for just two bucks. I don’t know how long this price will last before it jumps back to about $ 15.
