Story: If We were All Robots, would We be Gay?

I found this piece somewhat confusing, because the characters who supposedly died were shown as being alive immediately after the moment when I'm presuming they were killed. The interrogation scene is heartbreaking and disturbing, which I'm sure it was meant to be. However, it would be better justified if Phil's relationship with his family were shown more vividly ahead of time, and the hatred towards robots better explained. I hope you find this helpful. Please take a moment and read my story, "Dating Safari," and share your comments.

Once I got past the profanity, this turned into an interesting read. I don't understand why everyone finds the need to use fowl language in a short story; this would have been better without it. I loved the ending. I think the true murderers in your story were the humans. Feel free to read my story, 'Drift Away' and leave a review letting me know what you think.

This is very interesting, thought-provoking, and a great read. The descriptions draw you into the story and capture imagination. I was momentarily transported away.

I love this. I would have filed it as Sci-Fi though, not Fiction, because the primary conflict in the story is between the robot and humanity, not the gender. But the writing is fantastic and I highly recommend it to other readers. Your command of language and description is amazing and I really felt involved in this story.
