Summary

A futuristic noir thriller: When Jess Green is recruited by the Unit for her unusual abilities, she hopes she’s finally found safe haven. Unfortunately life in Department Thirteen (Crime Solutions) is anything but.
A sinister brotherhood are stealing human organs, and Jess and her uncooperative handler are put on the case. Their quest takes them into the lair of a rich philanthropist and his beautiful, brilliant daughter who together run The Eternity Fund, anti-aging as it’s never been known before.
Haunted by flashbacks and convinced that something within the organisation is dreadfully familiar, Jess finds herself recalling the shadows of her past and wondering whether she will ever truly be free…

addictive post-apocalyptic dystopian fairytale

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Absolutely. Beautifully observed characterisations; highly original and endearling female protagonist with an uncanny talent, who comes head to head with a brilliantly realised, scary societal solution to anti aging, and a twisting, beguiling plot driven through a vicerally depicted, seductively believable future world. Very ocassional i got a bit lost, but it didn't affect the story's overall excitement . I'd like a copy of the book to reread the complex ending - but then i'm someone who always needs to get the crossword puzzle out. Looking forward to the second and third in the trilogy, not least see how the bigger canvas is painted. What destroyed the earth initially? Will notions of anti-ageing ever lose traction? How can Jess make sense of her future... ?

What did you like best about this story?

Being thrown headlong into a confident, assured narrative and left to glean the context and story like a local. The writer's authentic voice and engaging style creates a fully formed furturescape, yet simultaneously maintains a deep sense of mystery. Reminded me of Pullman's writing, in that way.

Which character – as performed by Imogen Church – was your favourite?

Jess, of course. But they're all engaging, particularly Mo, and Jess's mentor, who's name i've forgotten. I loved the golumesque librarian too.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yes, but I only wish I had the time - instead I was listening in snatched moments on the tube and whilst cooking meals for hoards. Would buy the book too, if it gets into print. It should.

Great new sci-fi entry!

The plot and characters are first-rate. Although I found the primary villains just a little "over the top" there is still room for the the mere two-bit and sleazy villains to add that extra color!

Well done and highly recommended.

Very interesting futuristic dystopian story.

What made the experience of listening to The Eternity Fund the most enjoyable?

Good world building. Writer has excellent descriptive skills allowing the listener to get into the story. Liz Monument drops you into the middle of the story and gives character background and develops the mystery until the end.

What was one of the most memorable moments of The Eternity Fund?

Several : Meeting Reginald, Cake with Rosie, Meeting the Fortune teller, Meeting the geneticist, Finding the wasteland lair and the horrors she saw there. I really thought the story was clever and well written.

Have you listened to any of Imogen Church’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

No

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

I cried once, laughed a couple of times.

Any additional comments?

I was sad when the book was over and wanted more. I wonder if a follow up could be written?
