***THIS BOOK WAS PROVIDED TO NERD GIRL IN EXCHANGE FOR AN HONEST REVIEW***
Genius, wealthy and life regenerated, Adam Spenceworth is living the dream aboard his custom spaceship run by Mum, his first designed AI, protected by Gort, his first robot, and occupied by Eve, his sexbot. With each regeneration he returns to start over as a twenty-five year old man ready to enjoy the pleasures of his success. What could go wrong? Except, maybe, planetary wars, territorial space battles, alien invasions, and the disturbing fact that each regeneration is taking exponentially longer than the one before bringing him into one galactic crisis after another. A frolicking space drama filled with references sure to strike home with any science fiction aficionado.
The synopsis intrigued me, I mean who could resist “A frolicking space drama filled with references sure to strike home with any science fiction aficionado” when it is offered up for a review. Certainly not me, but I am not sure that little blurb really lets you know what you are in for.
Yes, there are lots of laugh out loud moments, especially for a sci fi fan like myself. Nods to many of the well known exploits and shows etc, but what starts off quite light hearted and tongue in cheek takes a turn somewhere along the way until (without giving spoilers) by the end you find yourself really thinking about things you didn’t expect to and certainly have a new perspective on the protagonist.
Overall this was well written and enjoyable and earns 4 stars from me.
