    Immortality, the final frontier. Well, one of them anyway, there's also space, of course, for purists. But in this book space has been conquered, Mars renamed Musk (yikes) and technology has reached such extensive global prevalence that death remains the only thing to conquer. Until recently it's been prolonged, but the powers that be, particularly Arthur (a titan among moguls), desire more. And now he's going to get his wish. Though there might ...

    The idea was interesting.Immortality!!!"Soon to be true story"Sounds interesting right? Hope not.Given the circumstances in the book. I really hope not. Anyways the book was interesting. I like the concept. A page turner for sure. Go for this if you like a good sci-fi thriller. Note: I received a free e-copy of the book via Net Galley in exchange for an honest review. Special thanks to the author and publisher for giving me a chance to read it.

    I won an uncorrected proof of this book in a Goodreads giveaway.Arthur Vogel is the richest man in the world and is 127 years old. Those who can afford it, replace whatever is ailing them to extend their life. A mixture of biologic and mechanical parts. It isn't all hunky dory though. They're practically shriveled little imps that reminded me of Yoda and can practically only eat bland mush. For fifty years Arthur has had Bob, his head scientist, ...

    A futuristic look at how the wealthy and powerful have found a way to cheat death. Arthur is a mean old buzzard with a much younger trophy wife/nurse and more money than God but he is a man in pieces - literally. Every morning he straps on appendages, inserts his eyeball, connects to any number of computer devices and downs nourishing glop and vitamins. Is he happy to be alive? Of course not, so he finds the technology to body swap with a manufac...

    Interesting sci-fi satire and meditation on class and wealth. Immortality is now the thing for the richest of the rich- the tech moguls who have lots of money and sometimes, not much heart or sense. Arthur is the richest of them all and he's got his minions working for him. This one won me over despite it not being my usual genre because of the sly and persuasive writing. Thanks to Netgalley for the ARC. This can and should be read as a cautionar...

    Promising start and interesting premise but I didn't like the writing. For example, the first chapter was a fairly good setup. But the second chapter was pointless and didn't go anywhere. After reading the second chapter, I had to read the back of the book to figure out what it meant. And it was more of the same after that: a lot of writing that didn't advance the story, it was just writing. Whatever it was, I didn't get it. 1 star = "did not lik...

    Full of dark humor while simultaneously being almost too realistic. As the description says this could be us in the future. The technology here does hit a bit close to home. A very entertaining read and also mildly horrifying to think of something like this happening in our future. I found this to be a quick read and a page turner. The story is fast paced and keeps the readers attention throughout.
