Descrizione

From Hugo, Nebula and World Fantasy Award winner Joe Haldeman, the best-selling author of The Forever War and Forever Peace, comes a thrilling sci-fi story that examines a world where time truly is money, and what happens when they both run out.

More even than space travel, the Stileman Process has altered 21st-century life. The most complex of medical miracles, it ensures that every 10 years or so, the ailing aging body can be restored to youthful vigour and health. There's a catch, of course: the cost. Every 10 years or so, you have to come up with £1,000,000 minimum to repeat the procedure or die.

For Dallas Barr, one of the oldest men on earth, it's that time again. While casting around desperately for his next essential £1,000,000, he meets Maria, a woman from - literally - a previous life, and makes two major discoveries.

One: Not all Stileman "immortals" were born - or created - the same.

An Author's Republic audio production.

  • (4/5)
    Solid title with enough intrigue and action to keep the average sci-fi fan satisfied. The ending comes abruptly and is a tad offputting but serves its function fine enough, I suppose, though it is my only real gripe with the story. All in all, not a bad audiobook! The narrator does an excellent job.
  • (4/5)
    Although the novel lost its excitement and exhilaration midway through, the narrator kept me entertained. He compensated for the somewhat drowsy and drawn out story. Nevertheless, it was a competent, intelligent narrative, credible enough to make me believe in it.
