I bought the book for my granddaughter. She read it and did a book report on it. She says that it's a truly enjoyable book to read and do a book report on.
I bought this book for my classroom. It's just what I wanted. Ordering from Amazon was quick and easy as was the delivery. My students love the story. It's Science Fiction and is keeping their attention. There is meat to the story and the reading level is excellent.
I bought this book for my child. She absolutely loved it!! I purchased it "used" there wasn't a scratch on it. Great condition!!
Sister needed this book for class for some reason. She got an A on the assignment, so I guess she liked the book.
Eager is an easy reading novel, suitable for young adults, with issues tha we can can all sink our teeth into. Rights of the individual, responsibilities of corporations, technology in our daily lives, the possible subjects are unlimited. Enjoy and happy thinking/discussing.
It was a great book although it was a little hard to keep track of the data or something like that that's hard to explain. Like what the heck I sounded like a robot seriously that was a really retarded way to put it. So ya.
Book is good.but,gift has not been packed as gift item but I have ordered as gift product
In this future world, robots are ubiquitous. Even your house talks to you. Gavin and Fleur may come from a middle class family, but even they have a family robot. But Eager is not like any other robot - he can think for himself and even has feelings. As Eager tries to understand the human world around him, Gavin and Fleur notice that the new ultra high-tech BDC4 robots are acting suspiciously. Now Gavin, Fleur, and Eager are drawn into a menacing world where robots and humans may not be as compatible as they once believed.
