THE ENTHRALLING NEW PSYCHOLOGICAL THRILLER FROM THE BESTSELLING AUTHOR OF THE GIRL BEFORE
Stories of artificial intelligence are not my go-to reads. I don’t really do science fiction however The Perfect Wife by JP Delaney is really more of a drama with a science fiction element and so I didn’t feel lost within a world. In fact, I just felt fear for how the world’s actual future could end up unfolding.
It is the story of a young woman who died but was brought back as an AI robot. A robot with the physical features and memories of the original owner of the memories…but made to be perfect.
To say that I was freaked out by this story would be an understatement. If this technology was real then life as we know it would be changed completely.
The irony of The Perfect Wife is that you feel empathy for Abbie – the robot. You empathise with an inanimate object which then has you questioning yourself.
Overall, The Perfect Wife leaves you questioning the advances in science and whether they are good or bad. If it doesn’t make you do that then you will just enjoy it for being a good psychological thriller.
The Perfect Wife by JP Delaney is available now.
