Celebrity Death Match Special Machines Like Me versus L invit eLooking back as is so often the case it was inevitable Miranda and I were short of money I had a story to tell which was still unusual With a little help the part I hated most was the nature of the help I found it easy to transpose the events of that fateful year into a novel It sold well and our bank balance finally began to reassume healthy proportions But still I had doubts In the final analysis did my work have any real value There was only one person we agreed who could be relied on to give us an honest opinion And thus after several weeks of increasingly agitated discussion a flurry of emails and a short trip on the newly commissioned Eurostar I found myself standing outside a discreetly elegant Paris apartment I summoned my courage and pushed the button on the interphone A moment later a voice muffled and distorted but instantly recognisable from a hundred TV interviews came though the metal grille All C est vous M FriendI paused hardly able to take it in I had just been directly addressed by the legendary Simone de Beauvoir I felt the crushing weight of a lifetime s achievements bearing down on me from the instant recognition accorded to her first book Tous les hommes sont mortels had received the Goncourt been filmed starring a young Brigitte Bardot and or less on its own created the paranormal romance genre through other novels the penetrating works of philosophy her friendships with the most brilliant writers of the century most recently her long overdue Nobel Prize And now I was talking to her Ah oui I said feebly The door buzzed and I entered She was standing in front of me her still beautiful face belying her seventy two years The man beside her moved forward and addressed me in English I failed to take in a word he said but mechanically shook his hand With a shock I realised that it was her American lover Nelson Algren I opened my mouth but no words emerged De Beauvoir laughed Please sit down she said There was only the slightest trace of a French accent So I understand that you wish to hear my opinion of your book I noddedShe looked at me sharply First I wish to establish some facts You told me that you wrote this novel in collaboration with a third party who has not been credited Who was the person in uestionI uh My mouth felt dry Perhaps perhaps who is not the right word De Beauvoir nodded I suspected as much An artificial intelligence then I indicated that she had understood the situation Very well she continued I apologise if you find the uestion intrusive but I need to know about the nature of the collaboration The book is not entirely without merit I was interested in the relationship between the three main characters they reminded me in some ways of one of my early works You have read L invit e I had not though of course I had heard of it and knew the outline of the plot Yes she said thoughtfully Toute conscience poursuit la mort de l autre The first sentence of my book it could have been the first sentence of yours I was sorry not to see this theme completely developed To return to my uestion who did whatWell I said You understand it is always difficult to be exact in these matters But approximately She made an impatient gesture and I found myself blushing Ah approximately we agreed that my collaborator would be responsible for the philosophical basis and the narrative outline I would supply background and additional scenes And I would retain creative control They exchanged glances Alors said de Beauvoir briskly You will excuse us but we have an urgent appointment in a few minutes Let me ascertain that I have comprehended The machine wrote the book then you messed it up and added filler and infodumps C est aI began to feel that this had not been a good ideaMatch point to be determined by a suitably ualified AI Simone de Beauvoir

At points in my reading of Machines Like Me I toyed with the idea that Ian McEwan was experimenting with a daring novelistic conceit Could it be true that he was deliberately constructing a lame and lackluster plot involving two of the most unengaging characters I have encountered in fiction in order to insinuate that human beings are overrated as narrative subjects and it wouldn t be much of a loss if we were all replaced by robotsUnfortunately I think I m wrong about this hidden agenda although it s true that McEwan s wistful haiku spouting android Adam is the most interesting figure in the novel by some distance His roommates or owners Charlie and Miranda signally fail to come off the page for me Charlie is a thirty something directionless dreamer with a ragbag of intellectual interests anthropology uantum physics robotics which McEwan uses as hooks on which to trail extensive info dumps from his research for the novel Miranda is a wispy twenty something obliue object of desire whose Shakespearean name allows McEwan to tap into resonances about brave new worlds and uncomfortable relations with enslaved sprites That is pretty much your lot in terms of characters apart from a few one or two scene wonders The best moments in the novel arise from the creepiness and ambiguity of Adam s mechanical humanity and I wish that McEwan had trusted to the interest of that theme Instead we get a half hearted suspense plot based around secrets and lies from Miranda s past incorporating what I found to be an astonishingly crass treatment of rape That killed what little life there was left for me in the novel and I found it hard to limp through to the endOne especially peculiar feature of this generally peculiar novel is its counterfactual 1980s historical setting This is a 1980s in which Britain loses the Falkland War rather than winning it Tony Benn becomes Prime Minister Alan Turing poignantly lives on as a grand old man etc etc etc Otherwise this is a 1980s that pretty much maps onto the present or present future in terms of technological developments presumably so that McEwan doesn t have the inconvenience of having to imagine himself back into a pre internet world I found it hard to see any point in this historical tinkering except that it allows a few rather heavy handed digs at the present Benn plans to take the UK out of the European Economic Community ignoring the 1975 entry referendum on the grounds that only tyrannies decided policies by plebiscite I found myself wondering as I finished this whether the success of McEwan s scintillating previous novel Nutshell 2016 left him feeling that he had to follow up with something eually high concept It s a shame if so The Children Act 2014 was a far traditional and less tricksy novel than either Nutshell or Machines Like Me and I felt it was one of McEwan s best for some time
