Fred by Aaron T. Knight is a delightfully funny tale about a rogue robot wreaking havoc on the streets of New York City due to being programmed with sociopathic traits by its creator. The rapid development of technology has led to Astro Robo Servant, Inc., a company that manufactures AI robots called Astros, whose sole purpose is to meet the personal needs and wants of the customer. When the founder of Astro Robo Servant, Inc., Sam Bass, unceremoniously fires a disgruntled employee named Glen Moody, Glen vows to exact revenge and secretly arms one of the Astros named Fred with anti-social behavior. Seeing no other recourse, Sam Bass sends his mild-mannered son-in-law, Stanley Hays, and his playboy nephew, John Bensing, on a wild goose chase through the streets of New York City.

Aaron T. Knight's Fred is filled with plenty of charm, wit, and humor to take you on a wild rollercoaster of a ride that you don't want to stop. With a fast-paced plot and a plethora of colorful characters, the author spins an engaging tale that keeps you entertained from start to finish. The characters are full of life, with distinct quirks and personality traits that keep you amused throughout the pages. Sam Bass is a ruthless billionaire whose treatment of his employees and son-in-law Stanley make for some genuinely hilarious moments. I also enjoyed the dynamic between Stanley and John as well as Fred's adventures on the streets of New York City. If you're looking for a fun-filled sci-fi adventure novel, I recommend Fred.
