Girl Parts by John M. Cusick

Girl Parts by John M. Cusick. Pub. Walker Books, 2011.

Once teenage boys find out about this book it will go round like wildfire.

David and Charlie are as different as chalk and cheese yet the day Nora Vogel took a lethal cocktail live on the net they are both watching. So are 748 others but David’s very rich and computer literate father decides it is is a weird thing to do. He sends David to a shrink who decides that David has disassociated himself from the real world.

The solution is to get David a “Companion” who is all a boy could want. Her name is Rose and she is part girl part robot and she is absolutely gorgeous and indistinguishable from the real McCoy. Her purpose is to discourage dehumanising behaviour and encourage healthy human interaction. Wow!

Rose has an Intimacy Clock inside her that dictates how she behaves under emotional and physical pressure from David. If you go too far you are zapped. David is mesmerized by Rose but really all she is really doing to him is regulating his lust.

One night at a party David is pushed to the limit and gets Rose to strip for him. What David sees changes everything.

It’s important to note that Rose is programmed to David, is totally devoted to him, but after the party things change and she comes in contact with the geeky but totally understanding, Charlie.

A very appealing plot, well told, literate and titillating in the extreme as it exposes teenage boy sexual behaviour.

It reminded me of the robot girls in the films Cherry 2000 and Bladerunner. Just incredible.
