The Lives of Puppets tells of a world of robots instead of humans, except for one.
I don’t feel I can find the words to explain the absolute genius storytelling that TJ Klune has accomplished with this book. The characters grab your heartstrings and feel like a glowing bout of the best hugs out there.
Right off the bat, I was obsessed with Gio, Victor, a nurse robot, and a vacuum robot. Their personalities are so intriguing and dynamic. Gio is super protective of Victor, who is his human son. Victor is so caring and will go to the ends of the earth to help those he loves. The nurse robot says ruthless things in a way that made me laugh throughout this adventure. She is a delight! The little vacuum is obsessed with cleaning yet is somewhat vulnerable and easily taken in by the words of others.
Then Hap is introduced and brings a whole new aspect to Vicor’s life. These characters are so well thought out, and their vibrant characteristics tip the chart as being wholesome and unique.
This is the only end-of-human life story I’ve read that is more touching than atrocious. Yes, horrible things have happened to bring an end to humans, but the majority of what is told shows that change is always a choice. It shows that good can prevail even when it seems impossible.
