Not sure if this book was meant to be funny, but it was in an absurd way. I mean, a man disguises himself as a lifelike robot to have sex with a woman? And the woman falls for it? I can't really buy that scenario given how the story was presented here. The idea is sort of creepy, and it didn't make sense. There wasn't any context given to say that the world the story takes place in has the technology to have lifelike robots.
