Kent Weston, by his own admission, an 'anal' office employee, is demoted at his corporate job and replaced by a very human-looking robot. This is unfortunate because not only is Kent's new non-human co-worker a better worker, but it is also better-looking. Inevitably the robot attracts the attention of the fellow female employee our hapless hero had his eye on. So Kent does what any of us would do, namely plots revenge on Adam the robot.
Demoted and demoralized, Kent enlists the help of his only friend, Garth. Together they devise plan after plan to expose Adam to the world for what he really is – a bucket of bolts incapable of replacing a real person.
Despite his best efforts, Kent finds that proving himself better than a machine is not as easy as he’d hoped.
Alone with only the cold comfort of a well-oiled
routine, Kent begins to wonder how much
'robot' there is in him and how much humanity'
there was in Adam.
With plenty of humourous insights into the future RUN ROBOT RUN is a thoughtful look at a society sufficiently advanced technologically to create robots but emotionally incapable of living with them.
