"In the same place that she feels this longing for Earth inside her, I feel a similar longing to be human, as if somehow I used to be, but then lost the ability. I know I'm only humanoid and that it's not the same. But I look like a human, and feel the way humans do. I consist of the same parts. Perhaps all that's needed is for you to change my status in your documents? Is it a question of name? Could I be human if you called me one?"

This book felt like a modern art installation. It posed many interesting questions. I was very intrigued by the premise. But it was also confusing at times and I lost interest. I finished it, moreso because it was so short than because I had any real desire to keep reading.
