Audrey's father taught her that to stay human in the modern world, she had to build a moat around herself; a moat of books and music, philosophy and dreams. A moat that makes Audrey different from the echoes: sophisticated, emotionless machines, built to resemble humans and to work for human masters.

Daniel is an echo - but he's not like the others. He feels a connection with Audrey; a feeling Daniel knows he was never designed to have, and cannot explain. And when Audrey is placed in terrible danger, he's determined to save her.

ECHO BOY is a powerful story about love, loss and what makes us truly human.

Review quote

Matt Haig is astounding -- Stephen Fry A highly original page-turner * Independent on Sunday * A brilliant story that you'll want to read in one sitting * The Sun on Sunday * An exciting SF thriller but also a rich and deeply felt exploration of the line that separates humans - creatures of love, passion, fear and hate - from mere organic simulations -- Anthony McGowan * Guardian * It's a treat to read such a satisfying, complex work * Financial Times *
