I won this book from the member giveaways on LibraryThing. It has some great ideas and a few really good details, but I don't think this story was ready to be published at all. It could be great, but it needs a lot of work and not just editing - although that would have helped. To start with it needs to be set farther into the future with more world-building and it needs more emotion. The writing is very stilted. If it had been all from Tears point of view (which I thought was implied from the title, but that might just be me) that could have worked in the beginning as long as it changed along with the humanoid as he gained more emotions himself. There were also a lot of holes in the logic and the story that could have been filled in. This was very short (78 pages on my nook).I think the author has potential, but this story could have been much, much better and I just can't recommend it as is.
