PRAISE FOR P.Z. REIZIN'S HAPPINESS FOR HUMANS
Reizin's novel is a fun and fast-paced romp through the
tangible and electronic realms. Told in alternating perspectives
between the human lovers and coded machines, this tale makes a
classic point: life is beautiful because it's too short to miss.
Even technophobic readers will be drawn to each zany character's
universal search for happiness.--Booklist
Happiness for Humans...is great fun...a charmingly screwball love story.--Seattle Times
A frothy rom-com in literary form...a broad and madcap love story...charming.
A sort of Shakespearean comedy of errors but instead of the gods there are rogue AIs seeking to meddle in the affairs of humans. Great fun.
--The Booksellers (UK)
Irreverent, zany, and hilarious, this debut romantic comedy for the digital age is a pure delight, sure to appeal to fans of Tom Perrotta, Nick Hornby, and Stephen Fry.--Library Journal (starred review)
One of the most unique love stories ever written, this novel blends the ethereal concepts of true love and fate with a thoughtful examination of the risks and worries of artificial intelligence. The alternating perspectives between the humans and AIs keep readers captivated while providing a fulfilling dose of quirky humor and will they or won't they tension.--RT Book Reviews
Part love story, part meditation on the role of AI in our society, Happiness for Humans by P.Z. Reizin is a fun, light romance that also happens to ask some important questions about what it means to be human-and what it means to be in love.--Bookpage
Reizin follows Happiness for Humans with a madly inventive and marvelously imaginative rom-com in which he brilliantly blends elements of 2001: A Space Odyssey with Bridget Jones's Diary into something so deliciously unique and dryly humorous it will have readers begging for more, while looking at their smart home appliances in a whole new way.--Booklist
This funny, madcap romp for the digital-age, featuring believably flawed characters (not all human), deserves to be a hit... like David Nicholls' One Day or Graeme Simsion's The Rosie Project, it should appeal to male and female readers.--Sunday Times
