This intelligence is passed down from generation to generation. It is a beautifully written story about what it means to be alive and real. It also delves into the fears humans have that their creations will destroy and replace them. Valente does a wonderful job mixing traditional fairy tales and folktales into the science fiction and technology of the story. She shows how the themes in these stories are timeless and help us learn about humanity. I would definitely recommend this short book. The writing is poetic and beautiful and she examines the issues surrounding artificial intelligence in a way that is both familiar and unique.
Cora-R Jul 29, Reading this felt like being transported to dream state. Far future sci-fi about an AI as it grows and changes with a family and the people that grow with it. Emotional and engaging, but somewhat more like taking drugs than just reading, so basically just delightful.

AjaxBell Aug 24, Wow. Beautiful and sometimes confusing language. It's kinda like that Simpsons Halloween episode with Pierce-Brosnan-as-the-house-of-the-future meets Inception meets Pinocchio. Really quite good. The Melancholy of Mechagirl by Catherynne M. Robots: The Recent A.
