Sinossi

"

So easily could one imagine this story infused with the rich detail of character, setting, and motivation that would transform it into a memorable work of brilliant insight. —Clarion Review



Throughout this compelling story, Fawcett makes fascinating inquiries about life, evolution and the true nature of man, proving that with all of our technology, the human mind still remains the most powerful and mysterious tool. —Kirkus Review




Faced with imminent death after a grim cancer diagnosis, sixty-eight-year-old Dr. Ian Farrell decides that he and his wife, Caitlin, should live life fully and appreciate every moment he has left together. After Ian and Caitlin return to Chicago from a spontaneous trip to Santa Fe, Ian has no idea that he will soon have a tempting carrot dangled in front of his nose: the chance to live forever.



When Ian lands back in the hospital for more tests, two agents from a governmental research agency ask him to submit to an attempted transfer of his mind to an electronic chip. With very little time left to live, Ian accepts. He flies to Project Phoenix the next day with Caitlin and Colonel “Wild Bill” Clausen, the head of Project Phoenix. After he bids his wife good-bye, Ian swears his allegiance to the United States, lies on a table, and heads into the bowels of a machine that will change his destiny forever.



In this intriguing novel, a dying man now left with nothing but his consciousness must create a new identity and partner with a brilliant neurophysicist in order to save humankind from a destructive technology.

5.0 su 5 stelle Finest First Work of Fiction I've Read In Years 7 febbraio 2015
Di Armac - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Formato Kindle Acquisto verificato
Dr. Jan Fawcett is certainly a multi-talented individual. A preeminent professor of psychiatry at the University of New Mexico School of Medicine in Albuquerque, New Mexico, he has devoted his career to the study of mood disorders and suicide. Though of the science fiction genre, Living Forever is equally science as much as fiction, with some activities such as conscious intellect transfer to a computer chip being experimented with today. It is science, mystery, a love story on several levels, and Doctor Fawcett's love of the southwest, particularly the Santa Fe area, is obvious. Having lived in New Mexico for over nine years before reluctantly moving to the Midwest, I caught myself pausing to remember the people, land, and his descriptions of scenery and sunsets of north-central New Mexico. To this day, I miss Dr. Fawcett's land of enchantment that he describes so well.

As a freelance writer, myself, I can honestly say that as a first work of fiction, this is a remarkable piece. It's one of those works one doesn't want to put down, but at the same time, wish to read slowly to savor the the interaction of science, philosophy, mystery, and love of life. As one reviewer said, "If you like to think while you read, and yet be entertained, this is your book." I highly recommend Living Forever.

If you like to think while you readi and yet be entertained, this is your book. The sequel should be a stunner.
