Whilst Auto 2 follows Auto, it is more of a linear story as opposed to Auto 1's individual stories only tying-in in retrospect.
Auto 2 follows the stories directly from the first book with the distinct chapters telling the story from different character's viewpoint.
Joanna has lost Greg but nobody knew they were seeing each other. Her sister, Siobhan, has come to stay with her own problems. But there's an even bigger problem on-line.
I love these stories set in the early 2020s. Seeing the youngsters in work tapping on their social media makes me think of how things will be just 5-7 years down the line. In fact whilst reading this book on my kindle, I had to leave the house to go fetch a curry and made sure I synced it on my phone so I could read it whilst waiting for my order. Each little thing makes me wonder how historical the Auto series will become.
