The Municipalists by Seth Fried
Updated: Feb 14, 2020
Summary: Henry Thompson is a bit uptight, but dedicated to his job at the United States Municipal Survey. When he gets paired with a fun-loving, impulsive artificial intelligence, he finds himself saving the infrastructure he loves in an unusual way.
Review: This book was fantastic!! The perfect mix of humor, sci-fi, and adventure. OWEN is the perfect sidekick in this alternate reality where every street corner, building, and traffic light is planned. And there is even a layer underneath the action-packed drama about gentrification and poverty. I couldn't recommend this one enough.
