當一對年輕男女與機器人之間深陷三角愛戀,又該如何突破道德的困境

1980年代平行時空的倫敦,柴契爾和托尼‧本恩正在爭奪最高權力,而艾倫‧圖靈在人工智慧領域獲得突破性的成就。主角Charlie整日遊手好閒,在生活中漂泊,他所深愛的女孩Miranda聰明、美麗卻隱藏著可怕的秘密。某日查理獲得一筆收入,他買下人類第一批生產的機器人Adam,Charlie和Miranda一起重新設計Adam的人格,一個接近完美的仿真人即將誕生,Adam不僅帥氣、強壯而且非常聰明,一段複雜又糾葛的三角戀就此展開,而他們也漸漸陷入道德困境的泥沼。

伊恩‧麥克尤恩再度顛覆想像,透過這本作品提出許多值得深思的問題,人類是何以為人,是外在的行為還是內心生活的組成?機器人是否真的能讀懂人心?

New from Ian McEwan, Booker Prize winner and international bestselling author of Atonement and The Children Act

Machines Like Me occurs in an alternative 1980s London. Britain has lost the Falklands War, Margaret Thatcher battles Tony Benn for power, and Alan Turing achieves a breakthrough in artificial intelligence. In a world not quite like this one, two lovers will be tested beyond their understanding.

Charlie, drifting through life and dodging full-time employment, is in love with Miranda, a bright student who lives with a terrible secret. When Charlie comes into money, he buys Adam, one of the first batch of synthetic humans. With Miranda's assistance, he co-designs Adam's personality. This near-perfect human is beautiful, strong, and clever—a love triangle soon forms. These three beings will confront a profound moral dilemma.

Ian McEwan's subversive and entertaining new novel poses fundamental questions: What makes us human? Our outward deeds or our inner lives? Could a machine understand the human heart? This provocative and thrilling tale warns against the power to invent things beyond our control.
