Silas was alone and wandering the wasteland that was post-apocalyptic America. Then he made friends with Deacon. The unusual part of this friendship was the fact that Silas wasn't human. He was a simmie - simulated intelligence or android. Deacon was still upset that simmies had killed most of humanity. Chris Yee writes and interesting and evocative tale of the bonding between the two and their adventure in finding the home of the simmies. 
I found this to be a very enjoyable read.

An interesting read. Yee does not go into much detail about the war between robots and man. He really lacks any detail about the simmis and how they are the way they are. Except for being mechanical they act and think just like humans. We have come to expect AIs to follow Asomov’s Three Laws of Robotics but that is definitely not the case here. Yee tries to use western humor throughout but fails miserably.
