The story is based on a small robot, named Boot who wakes up in a scrapyard having only two and a half memories. He sets out on an adventure to find his owner, Beth with the help of his new friends. Do you think Boot can face the dangers and obstacles of the journey and find Beth? The main characters of the story are Boot, Beth, Noke and Red. I think I enjoyed this story as much as the author must have enjoyed writing the book. My favourite character was Noke as he was very funny and he used to help Boot in all his dangers. Boot is a very enjoyable book and the description of the characters was so interesting. I also think that in the future technology would be advanced as described in the book and that robots will have a mind of their own. I would like to recommend this book to my friends as they would love to read this book.

Boot was a really good book but the only thing that can be improved is the language which should be so affective and just make me wanna read it FOREVER but apart from that it was an amazing. It was about a robot called boot who goes on an adventure with his friends Noke Red Tag and Poochy a dog. Overall I loved it so much!!!!!

First, a question. Do robots ever think? Do robots ever have a mind of it's own? Do robots have emotions? These questions are answered in this book (well, of the robots that are in this book). Basically, a robot wakes up with only 2 and a half memories at a place with trash. In the memories, he can figures out that he is owned by a girl named Beth. Can he get home and find Beth? You can easily figure it out: it takes place in the future (hello robodog!). I recommend you to read this book if you're in for adventure. It's Tech-no-lazy!

Boot is a delightful story about a toy robot, who ends up up in a junkyard with only two and half glitchy memories of his owner, Beth. Most toy robots are only programmed to say wacky phrases and everything, but Boot actually thinks like a human. On his search for Beth, Boot meets other robots and humans. There's plenty of adventures and new robots to enjoy in this book. I'd definitely recommend it to anyone who likes funny books.
