It must have been around ten minutes after Vic died that he first heard the voices but he didn't know what they were. Not who they were, but what they were. It wouldn't be long before he remembered what voices were and what made them. He would know what everything was in fact, as his mind slowly built a picture of a universe he once existed in. In that universe were things, and one of those things had been Vic Jones. If he had been in possession of any conscious thought five minutes ago he would have been quite pleased with himself. The suicide had gone exactly as planned and he had no reason to believe everything else wouldn't. He had left clear instructions for his entire body to be placed in cryogenic suspension until such time as a cure existed for the cancer that was about to ravage his body. That is until he actually did have conscious thought.
One of his first conscious thoughts was "Something must have gone wrong, very wrong indeed."

Lived up to the hype
By far the best, because its my second and it would be unfair to say what the first one was.
Its definitely in the realm of the Arthur C Clarke and such like as a great science fiction tales. Its one of those stories thats based on true science which adds an extra element
I have read the book and enjoyed it immensely but I agree Don Warwick was an excellent choice for narration. His tone and voice might not suit certain titles I'm sure but he did an excellent job of keeping me gripped, especially as I wasn't new to the story.
I love the tagline it has... Immortality or Humanity but I think mine would be.Looper meets Jonnie Darko
I held off the book for a while after hearing so much about it on various blogs etc and finally gave in as I don't get much time to read on paper. The audible version is just perfect for me and I am really enjoying both the app and the book.As for the rumours going round about the books history I expect people just love a mystery but the connection is obvious. Take it for what it is, a great sci fi dystopian novel with a real positive feel.
Completely immersed from the first sentence.
I loved this book. I have it on paper and thoroughly enjoyed both. I was immersed in the world of 2515 and my only criticism is that for a sci-fi book it was relatively short unless it turns out to be book 1 of a series.
The ending is a real tearjerker but it's not a love story is it?. Looking forward to the stage show ,it sounds incredible. Ringside seats for the early adopters I hope!
