Good Girl is a work of fiction in the science fiction, cyberpunk, and techno-thriller sub-genres and was penned by author Olga Werby. The work is intended for the general reading audience and presents a cerebral and sophisticated look at the nature of Artificial Intelligence, what it can learn and how it thinks. Our protagonists are a trio of interstellar travelers who are sent in isolation on a long journey to find a new planet for the human race to colonize. Each of them is accompanied by a different facet of Saia, who at first appears to be a competent AI companion and space flight guide. But as cracks appear in Saia’s pristine surface, the safety of the future colonists is at stake.

Author Olga Werby has crafted a truly fascinating work of fiction with plenty of action, intrigue, and thrilling moments to offer readers. Having recently watched the chillingly isolated AI drama I Am Mother, this book was a welcome return to the genre for me and will certainly satisfy fans of this ilk with its creepy undertones, powerful poignant questions, and intricate character psychology. Another feature that I especially enjoyed about this work was the construction of the plot into episodic, character-focused moments, which brings that isolated feeling home all the more, whilst at the same time showcasing the author’s talent for crafting distinct personalities that leap off the page. Overall, I would highly recommend Good Girl to fans of cyber-thrillers with plenty of psychological thrills, strong character-led dramas, and for AI fiction enthusiasts everywhere.
