Echo Boy Summary

Echo Boy by Matt Haig

Audrey's father taught her that to stay human in the modern world, she had to build a moat around herself; a moat of books and music, philosophy and dreams. A moat that makes Audrey different from the echoes: sophisticated, emotionless machines, built to resemble humans and to work for human masters. Daniel is an echo - but he's not like the others. He feels a connection with Audrey; a feeling Daniel knows he was never designed to have, and cannot explain. And when Audrey is placed in terrible danger, he's determined to save her. ECHO BOY is a powerful story about love, loss and what makes us truly human.

Echo Boy Reviews

"Matt Haig is astounding" -- Stephen Fry
"A highly original page-turner" * Independent on Sunday *
"A brilliant story that you'll want to read in one sitting" * The Sun on Sunday *
"An exciting SF thriller but also a rich and deeply felt exploration of the line that separates humans - creatures of love, passion, fear and hate - from mere organic simulations" -- Anthony McGowan * Guardian *
"It's a treat to read such a satisfying, complex work" * Financial Times *
