'Exquisitely written… asks what it really means to be human’ RED

'Intense, compelling' GUARDIAN

'Barbie for girls who like Aphex Twin' SHEENA PATEL

She’s human in every way that matters.

Annie is the perfect girlfriend. She has dinner ready for Doug every night, wears the outfits he buys for her, and caters to his every sexual whim. Maybe her cleaning isn’t always good enough, but she’s trying really hard.

She was designed that way, after all.

Because Annie is a robot. But what happens when she starts to rebel against her stifled existence and imagine the impossible – a life without Doug?

'A compelling story of power, consent and control’ GRAZIA

‘A smart dive into big questions about identity, autonomy and power… packs an impressive punch’ THE TIMES, Book of the Month

Reviews for Annie Bot

'Witty, wicked, and weirdly addictive' LIONEL SHRIVER ‘Such a compelling read. Memorable, emotive, weird-in-a-good way’ NIAMH HARGAN ‘A brilliant and enraging exploration of ownership and love, and the way our creations have of growing far beyond us… Annie is a glorious creation – and self-creation – and I will never forget her, or this sharp and astonishing book’ CLARE BEAMS, author of The Illness Lesson ‘What is love without autonomy? Honesty when one partner's sole desire is to please? Sierra Greer's riveting debut sketches an intimate and unsettling portrait of relationship power dynamics… A timely and provocative exploration of power and romantic relationships that will stay with you long after you finish the last page, Annie Bot probes the depths of identity and intimacy and asks what it means to recognize the humanity in others and in ourselves. Sierra Greer is a fierce new voice in speculative fiction’ LAUREN NOSSETT, award-winning author of The Resemblance ‘Haunting and achingly luminous, Annie Bot is a powerful manifesto for the radical discomfort and necessity of pleasing and living for yourself. Greer brilliantly shows us the futility of relationships when one person is deemed inferior, examines the ways men and women socialize one another, and raises questions about whether the contours of love and womanhood are actually captivity. I fell in love with Annie Bot, one of the realest women I have ever encountered’ LING LING HUANG, author of Natural Beauty ‘Reminiscent of Gone Girl in places and Barbie in others… so clever, nuanced and layered that one reading doesn't do it justice’ ROSIE HANNIGAN 'A dazzling, anxiety-inducing novel… a pained and moving study of a consciousness preparing itself for the moment when it will at last face what makes humans human: the burden and opportunity of choosing what it wants' Scientific American magazine
