    One thought on “Finished with Life But Unable to Die Omnibus”

    1. A really good sci fi book based on a plausible scientific premise. The many worlds hypothesis says that each time a measurement is performed on a quantum system, the universe divides so that each different outcome corresponds to a separate universe. Naturally the universe observed by anyone is one in which the observer is alive, so in any life or death situation, if there's any probability that you stay alive then as far as you're concerned you will keep on living. The book takes us from the pre [...]

    2. This is a thought-provoking novel of ideas, or philosophical novel. As such, it deals with many big ideas; the human condition, inequality, climate change, multiverses, the nature of freedom, family ties and family responsibility, artificial intelligence. but all in a very accessible way. The story centers around Michael Haynes, who is cryogenically frozen then awoken several years later when science has evolved to the point that people do not die.It's not brilliantly written and the characters [...]

    3. Read the whole bloody thing. For free from the author, so he gets a review. Not a fan of dystiopian (sp?) novels in the first place but I needed something to do at work. Would of given 2.5 stars but can't figure out how to do that. Damn kids and their new fangled things! Oh look a lead inThe beginning was very well structured and easily followed. Old guy (when your 91 your an old guy and set in your ways) with looser kids trying to make things right for them when you die. Of course things don't [...]

    4. A thought-provoking Sci-Fi novel that teases a brave new world but too often avoids offering the specifics that would really give it life, Finished With Life But Unable To Die touches on such marvelous topics as transhumanism, life-extension, artificial intelligence, nanotechnology, and cyberpunk culture in a way that keeps it interesting and plausible without over-explaining or getting (overly) handwavy.Its weaknesses lie in a few too many skin-deep and stereotypical characters, convenient and [...]

    5.  "If I say something is so, does that not make it so?"I had read the first part of this book Finished with Life but Unable to Die, previously as a stand alone separate edition and was impressed sufficiently by the simple delivery of thought provoking ideas to purchase the omnibus of continuing stories ( this volume also begins with the story I had already read).I was not disappointed by the continued proliferation of interesting ideas contained in this book - the way we view ourselves and ar [...]

    6. Michael is in his 90’s and all he wants is to die, leave his children with an inheritance and move on to hopefully meet up with the love of his life, that passed several years ago. Luke, one of Michael’s sons has a different idea though. What if you could live forever? Would you want to? Michael did not, he only wanted to die. Luke worked for a micro technology company and had a new ground breaking formula to stop cancer which he used on Michael without his permission. Is it selfish to want [...]

    7. Have you ever called in sick to work because the book you're reading is too good to put down? Me either - until I started reading this book! Scott Bartlett is Newfoundland's own George Orwell. The story was original, exciting, and well-written. Can't wait to see what's next for this author! Hidden Gem:"Coerced respect isn't really respect."
