Android Karenina

I spotted Android Karenina at Chapters today and I don't even know how to weigh in.... I really disliked Anna Karenina (sorry Heather, Adam). And although I never read Pride and Prejudice and Zombies, I became less patient with the idea of the mashup novel once Sense and Sensibility and Sea Monsters was released (followed by other horror-y novels sprinkled throughout bookstores featuring puns on Pride and Prejudice/Mr. Darcy/Elizabeth Bennett).

All that said, perhaps I would actually love Android Karenina? Since it would inject much-needed levity in a book I found ... stuffy?

Assuming I can get past the gag-inducing first line: "Functioning robots are all alike; every malfunctioning robot malfunctions in its own way."
