The Wrong Unit: A NovelThe Wrong Unit: A Novel by Rob Dircks
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I really enjoyed this story! While it was not as funny as “Where the Hell is Tesla?” it was excellent for sci-fi.

Heyoo is a servile android that is programmed to serve humanity. When he/she/it is transported to a seemingly random point on earth his adventure begins. He finds a baby without any parents and, being a service android, takes the baby, names it Wah and takes it upon himself to raise the baby himself.

When Heyoo and Wah stumble upon a building that is thousands of kilometers from where they started, they meet Brick/Iceman and discover that they have a have a greater destiny; to save mankind and destroy Core, a computer program hundreds of years old that has controlled the lives of humanity for centuries.

This is an excellent book that I thoroughly enjoyed listening to. Rob Dircks is one of the few authors who is also outstanding as a narrator. I can listen to him all day.

I took off one star for the story because of the use of profanity. While it is not used liberally, any use of profanity to me is unnecessary.

I received this book from the author in exchange for an honest review.

    I have this one in my library as well and am looking froward to it. Glad to hear the author is just as good a narrator.
