Read Made for Love Online Free - Hazel has just moved into a trailer park of senior citizens, with her father and Diane—his extremely lifelike sex doll—as her roommates. Life with Hazel’s father is strained at best, but her only alternative seems even bleaker. She’s just run out on her marriage to Byron Gogol, CEO and founder of Gogol Industries, a monolithic corporation hell-bent on making its products and technologies indispensable in daily life. For over a decade, Hazel put up with being veritably quarantined by Byron in the family compound, her every movement and vital sign tracked. But when he demands to wirelessly connect the two of them via brain chips in a first-ever human “mind-meld,” Hazel decides what was once merely irritating has become unbearable. The world she escapes into is a far cry from the dry and clinical bubble she’s been living in, a world populated with a whole host of deviant oddballs.
As Hazel tries to carve out a new life for herself in this uncharted territory, Byron is using the most sophisticated tools at his disposal to find her and bring her home. His threats become more and more sinister, and Hazel is forced to take drastic measures in order to find a home of her own and free herself from Byron’s virtual clutches once and for all.

"A robot officiated at my wedding," said Hazel. "Let me start there."
this is one of those books where if i try to summarize the plot, it will sound like the opium dreams of a maniac. which i'm fine with for myself, but then you might dismiss this book as the opium dreams of a mani...

There is no one who negotiates the absurd as vigorously yet poignantly as Alissa Nutting. In her second novel, Made For Love, Nutting explores the loneliness of a future overly mediated by technology through a tremendous romp involving Hazel, trying to leave her tech mogul husband Byron even thou...

In case you couldn’t tell from my placeholder “review” below, I reaaaallllllyyyyy wanted to read this one. Naturally that equated me being denied an advanced copy. Please note I’m not so first-world-problemy that I believe I am entitl...

Seriously?! You lost me with the dolphins.
There is no denying that Alissa Nutting is an excellent writer. I can't imagine being faced with writing a novel after putting Tampa out into the world either...that is one tall order. Perhaps she was trying too hard? When a book leads with a man living...

1.5 Stars. Ugh, I just did not get it. I loved Tampa but this book was an utter disappointment. I guess I wasn't the intended audience. I think I'm too old for this kind of nonsense.

I've been looking forward to this book all year and it did not disappoint. Alissa Nutting is a genius of the absurd, hilarious and straight up bizarre; she takes a sledgehammer to societal norms and never shies away from uncomfortable taboos.
At 35 years old, Hazel abruptly leaves her psychologica...

No one makes me more uncomfortable to be a participant in human sexuality than Alissa Nutting, and I mean that as an enormous compliment. She commits to ideas with fervor and wit, and even though those ideas are funny & wild, they still feel true to her cast of characters. I doubt it's even p...

It worked, Alissa: I love you.

I had a bad feeling about this ever since I first read the synopsis--that there was the possibility for a lot of interesting strangeness (which Nutting delivers) but that the idea also just seems a bit cartoony and maybe even dumb. This book is funny and sharp, but I got a sense of something just...

My first Alissa Nutting read, but I'll be back for more! The first chapter showcases some of the best writing I've ever seen. Hilarious, character-driven, perceptive social commentary. It has everything. The second chapter was even better.
The plot turned out to be less gripping than the first fe...
