Girl Parts - John M. Cusick Quick review: Great idea but failed execution, 1.5 stars

What starts with an emotional bang about what can happen when we distance ourselves by using technology quickly dissolves into a story about two boys, one a jerk and one not, and how sex or the lack of it makes them feel connected or unconnected to the rest of the world. The storyline could have been powerful but it wasn't, and most of the characters, namely David, were so unlikable that it was hard to keep reading. The world building behind the idea of Companion robots was also flawed and poorly constructed.
