How alone do we need to be before we’re lonely?


Detective Dixie Freeman lets no one get close.  When you allow people to become close all you end up getting is hurt.  Dixie’s parents were killed.  Dixie’s partner was killed.  And now, the one person she thought cared is just handing her over to some secret government project. 


Time travel, you’ve got to be kidding.  What nonsense and why her?  Simple.  If anything were to go wrong, who would miss her?


Dixie’s sent to the future to bring back anything that will help stop the rise in crime in her time.  She wasn’t sent to fall in love, and certainly not with a cyborg cop.  Randall Forty is the cop and because of Dixie he’s learning to be human once more.


There’s something very touching about “The Hidden Truth of Cytech’s Randall Forty.”  Dixie and Randall are lost individuals in societies that don’t see them, but together they find their missing pieces.  Normally, I don’t mix with stories that have characters fall together quickly; however, I’m drawn to both these fictional people.  Dixie, because we’ve all felt unseen and alone and Randall for being such an innocent; he’s someone who doesn’t know how to play games with emotions and once he remembers his humanness he’s very aware of what he may lose when Dixie’s forced to return to her time.


The story strikes another cord within me…how far will we allow computers and its technology to run our lives? 


Ms. Kennedy’s writing is smooth and drew me quickly into her world.  I had a couple of late night reading sessions, and even now a couple of weeks later the story is still with me.


I recommend “The Hidden Truth of Cytech’s Randall Forty” simply because its truly enjoyable and I want to revisit this world.
