#BookTour: Autonomous by @Andy_Marino @DisneyHyperion


About the Book:
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?
This title will be released on April 3, 2018.

Noteworthy experiences while reading this book: Kind of weird

Notes and Opinions: Alright so this one starts out with a preface from Otto or the driverless car. Which I found slightly confusing on what in the world is going on. Then it shoots back to five days earlier where our main character is trying to win the car.  In short, this is a very weird title. I think that it will engross and entertain some people but not all. For me, it can be summed up as just plain weird. Although I did enjoy most of the book and I thought the idea of the car being its own character. It did lack that spark to make it an amazing read.  If you are into things like Knight Rider, Christine, and other stories where a car is alive then this book will totally be for you.  The danger and the future tech were great. 

Go Into This One Knowing:  Secrets, Cool Tech, and a Killer Car await the reader of this one!
