Adventures in Solitude is an exceptional and entertaining read. Grant Lawrence writes about growing up visiting his family's Desolation Sound property and the diverse group of characters in the neighbouring area. I loved Grant's storytelling and vivid accounts of his time spent on the Coast including the history of the area, the wicked West Coast weather and the dire effects of "going bush."

Writer Meg Carpenter is unfulfilled in her relationship, her best friend is in distress, she’s had a falling out with another friend, and her novel is taking years to write, as she’s been busy writing teen fantasy books for the money. Then things start to change…Scarlett Thomas is a masterful storyteller who will make your head spin, but you won’t be able to put this book down.

In case it’s not obvious enough from the title and book cover this book is about killer robots. There’s nothing original about this novel, in fact the plot about an artificial intelligence bent on annihilating human kind is extremely similar to the Terminator franchise. That said, I loved this book. The author is a robotics expert and he does a credible job of creating a believable world where even your car wants you dead.
