Great story with environmental issues being the key to the unfolding of the very cleverly written story with wonderful character development.
Excellent SciTech thriller with environmental issues forming part of the background to behaviour of the some the major protagonists.
Not as "Hard Science" Fiction as I would normally read but a very impressive first novel and a great story - the Amazon reviews didn't mislead me on this one!
My Amazon.com.au review, 10 August 2014:
If you are into Radical Life Extension and how to get there, this is a MUST READ!
This is a GREAT book! Both from the story / writing point of view and the philosophical content that it demands discussion about. I think if civilisation survives itself this century and humans are able to rationally deal with all the self-created existential problems, then history will show that taking seriously many of the ideas in this book was a key turning point.
My only criticism is that the story turns into a bit of a lecture towards the end. However, even this is excusable if you consider that this document, while being a great read, can also be considered a manifesto for a new world. This manifesto should be seriously discussed, analysed and critiqued. I probably agree with about 80% of the ideas in there but I look forward to arguing about this stuff with Zoltan in the future.
Interesting books on the future - particularly the biology. I have a bit of a problem with the "Evil" Cryonics company - in the real world, Cryonics organisations are member-supported and non-profit but I guess that will change when the first frozen mouse is successfully revived!
