'The Last Machine in the Solar System' by Matthew Isaac Sobin is about as somber as the title sounds.

A machine named Jonathan reflects on his creator Nikolai and the death of humanity. His journey in space is also one to find a place to live out the rest of his days. The human race was doomed because it stayed in our solar system, and was a victim of the Sun. For a machine, Jonathan seems to have a lot of human emotion and eloquence of speech. His musings are not without feeling.

The book included some sketched illustrations. I didn't care for those and they didn't add anything to the story for me. In fact, the kind of distracted me every time they showed up. I liked that this felt like something out of the golden age of science fiction. At 80 pages, this felt like the exact right length for the story that is told.

I received a review copy of this ebook from Inkshares and NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. Thank you for allowing me to reivew this ebook.
