    PDF/EPUB The Obsoletes Kindle ½ Å alternate universe.co obsoletes kindle, The Obsoletes KindleThe Obsoletes by Simeon Mills is a young adult read that is a science fiction urban fantasy that takes place in the 1980s In this story there are tons of references to events taking place in that decade to bring readers back to that time frame but in this version robots are advanced enough to blend in and live as humans but certainly not embraced as eualsThe story is told from the point of view of Darryl the oldest of two brothers who are actually robots living in hiding while growing up and going to school Darryl takes us back a bit in the opening chapters of the story to elementary years and having parents before heading into the “now” part with Darryl and Kanga as teens in high school and their paren

    PDF/EPUB The Obsoletes Kindle ½ Å alternate universe.co obsoletes kindle, The Obsoletes KindleI received this book in exchange for an honest review Thank you for the opportunity to go out of my comfort zone and into a world of robots living silently among humans This book takes place in 1980s and 90s America specifically Michigan where twin brothers Kanga and Darryl are living as adolescents Their parents become obsolete and they are on their own Kanga becomes the “parent” and takes a mission to care for his brother This is pretty much the entire story mixed with a LOT of basketball I felt it had a lot of metaphors and hidden meanings and really appreciated the book for that I gave the book 3 stars because it interested me and is not typically a book I would like The story will stay with me although I did find it a little boring Robots and basketball just aren’t my thing I feel like this would be great for a high school class read or a student to do a project on as well as an entertaining read for a science fiction lover

    PDF/EPUB The Obsoletes Kindle ½ Å alternate universe.co obsoletes kindle, The Obsoletes KindleThere are a lot of interesting interpretations you can make about this book beyond the face value robot story line In light of recent events it's especially relevant to draw parallels to racism and undocumented immigrants Mills does a great job of layering this into the story; from the brothers' fear of being discovered for who they really are the conservative viewpoint of the townspeople the reporting and taking of the parent figures and To me this reading was the best aspect of the novel but I couldn't decide where The Obsoletes belongs Is this a YA Novel? Sci Fi? Adult Fiction? There are arguments for each but I found this shelved with general adult fiction at my local library so I was surprised to find in depth chapters dealing with high school basketball games and budding romances However the next page may seem very different in tone and message This isn't to say

    PDF/EPUB The Obsoletes Kindle ½ Å alternate universe.co obsoletes kindle, The Obsoletes KindleInteresting This is one of those books that made me wish the author went a lot further explaining their choices and digging deeply into the world they created In the book's world robots that can pass for humans live among us They are just another type of living creature; they grow have families work and die when they are deemed obsolete It is an odd ch

    PDF/EPUB The Obsoletes Kindle ½ Å alternate universe.co obsoletes kindle, The Obsoletes Kindle25 I think I was just out of my genre zone with this work of sci fi It's humorous and not too much of a leap of rationality but I just didn't have a connection I will say it kept me reading so that's a fair positive The narrator is a kid which I also find challenging in adult novels sometimes Darryl Livery is also a robot The year is 1991 and Darryl and his fraternal twin brother Kanga also a robot are trying to lay low as they start high school Not only do they not want to be outed as robots 'toasters' is the epithet in their robophobic MI small town but they are also parentless their Mom and Dad were collected years ago after being determined obsolete Darryl has filled in the parental role and Kanga a sub

    PDF/EPUB The Obsoletes Kindle ½ Å alternate universe.co obsoletes kindle, The Obsoletes KindleSo one minor error on pg 278 where it says Jump shot boy u I think that random u was the only error that I remember seeing I'd give this story a 35 if I could It was a nice breezy readI really liked the first few chapters A LOT I was really into Darryl's character and really wanted to know about why he thought the way he did I liked seeing what warped him how he reacted to those events and I wanted to see However it got kind of crazy in the middle and I wasn't too excited about how the coach and assistant coach talkedacted It annoyed me but I think that was purposeful The story veered off a bit because of them but came back around near the end I started to really like it againI just want to say however that I'm not a fan of Brooke or Kanga I felt that Brooke was just completely unnecessary to the story and was very annoying I don't know why she was written like that Her dialog desires
