Review | Autonomous by Andy Mariano

“what if we don’t like what’s in our hearts?”




William Mackler is about to go on a road trip of a lifetime. After winning a contest—and nearly dying in the process—he becomes the proud owner of Autonomous, a driverless car that knows where you want to go before you do. #Worthit! To sweeten the deal he gets to pick three friends to go with him on a cross-country trip to see their favorite band. For William, a reckless adrenaline junkie, this is the perfect last hurrah before he and his friends go their separate ways after graduation. But Autonomous is more than just a car without a steering wheel. It’s capable of downloading all of the passengers’ digital history—from the good, to the bad, to the humiliating. The information is customized into an itinerary that will expose a few well-kept secrets, but it will also force William to face some inner demons of his own. Think you know Autonomous? The real question is, how much does Autonomous know about you?

The world was really intriguing and it really seems to get the readers curiosity going. I can say that the book had a very modern feel. It was amusing in the way that it is relatable to the present modern era.


As much as I enjoyed the book, the world building was slightly all over the place at first which ended making me confused on what was going on at first and I really did not know where anything was headed. I had a hard time getting int the book at first but it kept me curious enough to stay.


I did ended up with a much better read that what was expected though I could say that the book could have connected to me more if the writing style and the representation of the world in general was different and more developed. Some topics were off for me personally and was just not something that I liked reading. The plot seemed all over the place and was one of the reasons I was not able to enjoy as much as I should have. I didn’t know what was going on half the time, sadly.



The characters seemed too one dimensional at first but I ended u loving them anyway. They appealed to me much more as the book progressed. They were just too lovable and they just grew on me the more I read. I have to say that the progression of the story and the development of the characters was somewhat the strong point and what kept me going in the book. It had a heart warming ending to go with everything as well.



This an amusing science fiction novel that I am sure young adult readers will at least enjoy and appreciate if not love. It was an adventure reading this.
