The Perfect Wife is something I would classify as a suspenseful sci-fi mystery/thriller. Abbie wakes up in a haze and quickly learns from her creator Tim that she is a co-bot: a companion robot, that was created in the likeness of her Tim’s dead wife. She has the real Abbie’s memories and appearance. She was created so that Tim and his son Danny wouldn’t be alone. Sounds perfect, right? The perfect wife and mom, gone too soon, but thanks to scientific advances and plenty of money, your loved one can be recreated to be just like the real thing!
Abbie and Tim had a seemingly perfect marriage, but of course nothing is ever as it seems. Diving between the past and present, co-bot Abbie comes to realize something is amiss. She has to figure out what Tim is really all about and what happened to Abbie so that she won’t become just a discarded pile of technology.
This book was really creepy and unique. I can’t give too much away but this one will definitely shock you and keep you reading for hours if you enjoy sci-fi books that really mess with your mind! Just when you think you’ve figured it out you’re hit with something crazy!
Do you like to read science fiction? It’s not one of my typical genres but I have been enjoying it lately!
