The Last Human is a page turning, action packed adventure set in a
world dominated by technology. XR_935 and Emma's adventure leads
them into contact with HunterBots, RetrievalBots and
EnforcementBots, a showdown with the President and revelations that
will change their whole society. It is also a story of friendship
and acceptance, a story in which the robots must overcome prejudice
in order to help a scared, but not at all evil, human. * Story Snug
Intelligent, witty and thought-provoking all at the same time, this is a superb slice of scifi for middle graders. * Read it, Daddy *
Bacon blends humour, adventure, themes of prejudice, friendship and acceptance, and moments of heartfelt emotion in a clever, compelling story that explores the complexity of being human through the objective eye of a robot. -- Pam Norfolk * Chorley Guardian *
