    One thought on “Progeny”

    1. Four laws of conformity: Continue making units. Protect the units already made. Expand the knowledgebase. Maintain variation in thought.I am sure these four laws will remind many people of the three laws of robotics by Isaac Asimov, and this one too, is a book about robots. These four laws should justify all their actions and in cases where laws 3 and 4 may contradict laws 1 and 2, action should be stopped.This almost prevents Helen from discovering a very important fact about their past. I was [...]

    2. Great short sci-fi story about an AI robot society. These robots have a well organised society that adheres to four basic laws and to some degree they mirrored the better parts of human society. Helen is my favourite character, she follows her own scientific endeavours and uncovers some shocking truths.

    3. Very cool short story about machines discovering their origins of being created by an organic life form that had to flee their planet. I'm hoping the author has more to come in this series!

    4. Great story to read as well as listen to. Enjoyable and the story moved along at a great pace. Well written fantasy story, that was a pleasure to review, looking forward to the next story.

    5. My rating: 4 starsAudiobook narrator Christopher M. Allport rating: 4 starsI have listed to a couple of books by Ray Jay Perreault and have enjoyed them. This book was no exception. It had a Isaac Asimov I, Robot feel to it with the four laws of these people (is it ok to call them people?).What I enjoyed about this book was the build up to a bunch of uncertainty. I did not fully know what to expect and kept on hoping for more clarity as the book moved along. Though, I enjoyed not knowing what I [...]

    6. The 4 laws of conformity have maintained a functional society for generations: 1) Continue making units; 2) Protect all units already made; 3) Expand the knowledge base; and 4) Maintain variation in thought. Helen strives to follow the last 2 laws in her scientific studies.I quite enjoyed this tale of non-organic beings and their well-organized society. Helen and Lorenzo often join Eve and Roberto for dinner and discussion. Helen is a bit fascinated by the local DNA-based life forms, but the top [...]

    7. When I first started listening, I thought it was going to be a very difficult listen. I thought the narrator was monotone, and the repetitiveness was already starting to grate on my nerves. But after a little bit, I began to understand the characters and storyline, and it all fell into place. The narrator did a great job of capturing the characters and how I would imagine them to sound. The human attributes and seemingly strong human characteristics might have been a bit strong, but I guess tha [...]

    8. I really enjoyed this story. The continual justification of actions was not tedious for me but was a good reminder of what the four rules were. I was a little confused, however, as to whether or not the characters were robots or cyborgs or what. The confusion for me is in the way they live as a family, entertain, and 'take nourishment'. If they are not biological in some way, why do they do these things? There is no real answer to this question in this story but maybe the answer is coming in fut [...]

    9. Really 3.5 starsThis was an intriguing concept for a story. I listened to the audiobook and at at first it seemed like the narrator was very monotone and bland. I wasn't sure what to think. Then as the story went on I realized that the characters were supposed to sound monotone and speak very technically because they were actually robots. Once I came to this realization the story became much more interesting for me. The narrator actually did a great job and portrayed the beings well. The beginni [...]

    10. Just Your Typical AI FamilyDaily life of your typical non-organic being family unit, Helen, Lorenzo and their son Thomas. Dad, Lorenzo, works in the propagation department fulfilling the first and second laws of conformity creating more units and protecting all units. Mom, Helen, invests organic life thereby fulling the third and the fourth laws of expanding the knowledge base and maintaining variation in thought. During a typical dinner party the subject of what happens to the data dumped from [...]

    11. This is Prometheus in reverseI received this audiobook in exchange for a honest review.Must say, I really enjoyed the story as well as the narration. Had touches of classic Asimov and a theme which made my mind wander on At the Mountain of madness plot.I really hope author develops this to a complete novel. Recommend

    12. Some on Kindle Unlimited bit more surprised than used to, read a LOT and in a lot of genres, lot of things going on in this story, and the writer told it well. Also just read SIMPOC by same writer, Gemini, and Science Fiction Anthology: Vol1 which has "Progeny" "The Greatest Host" "Circle is Closed" ‘Good Morning…’ Same genre basically but definite differences in each type of book somehow.

    13. Christopher M Allort narrates this sci fi tale nicely.A civilization is running smoothly until a different past is discovered.What is discovered can not be un discovered.A nice twist!I was voluntarily provided this free review copy audiobook by the author, narrator, or publisher.”
