The first Bionic book published in St. Petersburg

Imagine a book written by a computer!!!

It's true and it has been published by Astrel SPb, a publisher in St. Petersburg, Russia. The 320-page novel, called "True Love" is a variation on Leo Tolstoy's 1877 classic "Anna Karenina" but written in the style of Japanese author "Haruki Murakami".
It is based on 17 famous literary works that were uploaded onto the program. Within 72 hours, the computer generated its novel about true love.

Plot- Characters find themselves on an uninhabited island. All of them have amnesia. They know who they are, but they don't remember if they are married or have children, and what relationship they have with each other. In a way they are given a chance to build their relationship anew. The book is about how they make it.

But can a computer compete with a live author?!
