- Muscular Theme The theme of the story is the importance of having a friend. Kevin's friend is a computer, however there are some negative's to this situation Analysis and conclusion My opinion on the story is like i said earlier, that I initially did not enjoy science fiction stories but it changed my opinion on them. I am not saying that i will start reading science fiction stories all the time but I will consider reading them. The story User Friendly was a very well written story and it did surprise me. Rating I rate this story a 6/10 because i did not suspect a thing for the ending so T. did a very good job. Theme the significance of having a friend in my life is very important because it means there is someone there for me. a friend isn't necessarily a friend from school, a friend is someone who is always there for you no matter what, which is to me what T. was trying to convey.
