"It was just supposed to be a routine exam. But when the doctors snake the fiber-optic tube down Robert Smith's throat, what they discover doesn't make medical sense. Plastic casings. Silver filaments. Moving metal parts. In his naked, anesthetized state on the operating table, Robert hears the surgeons' shocked comments: 'What the hell is that?' 'It's me,' Robert thinks, 'and I've got to get out of here.' Armed with a stolen automatic and the videotape of his strange organs, he manages to escape, and to embark on an orphan's violent odyssey to find out exactly who--exactly what--he is"--Book description.

I's fairly good, but a little bit too wordy :) but if you have the time, do read it!

This book was... weird. I was intrigued by the story, and about what was going on with this guy. I kept reading, but more because I wanted to get to the end rather than because I was interested in the story. The ending was a bit of a disappointment.
