The Methuselah Strain

Review The Methuselah Strain Stuart Aken ´ 8 Read & download The Methuselah Strain Download ↠ 8 Artificial insemination appeals to her about as much as the materialistic and hedonistic philosophy that now drives most people And secretly forces designed to serve mankind develop a sense of superiority that might threaten human surviva This little book packs a surprising punch I picked up a copy as a way to see how I got on with Stuart s writing before committing to his much larger fantasy trilogy collectively called A Seared Sky The Methuselah Strain at least the lovely hardback copy I got from Fantastic Books is only a hundred or so pages so it seemed like a good starting pointStuart is one of my fellow authors in the Fantastic Books stable This in itself presented me with a few concerns What if I didn t enjoy the book Should I shut up and just pretend I hadn t read it or should I do an open and honest review Well I am doing the open and honest review but thankfully as I enjoyed the book I don t have to worry about getting blanked the next time I am at the same conventionI read the book in one sitting on the first morning of my last writing trip I didn t intend to I had planned to read a couple of sections and then get on with what I was supposed to be doing However the little book was hard to put down and as I got further into it things moved from oh just one section to I m going to finish this Dystopian futures have rarely been as beautiful as the scenes Stuart conjured in my mind The almost empty outside world the characters move through is contrasted with a far busier but eually lonely futuristic shopping mall Only two of the main characters are human and the soulless androids that they surround themselves with seem only to enhance the sense of nothingness within them At once I could visualise phantoms of The Omega Man 2001 Moon and AI Here is a world where very few humans have survived Those that have are mostly enhanced genetically designed virtual immortals unfettered by the need to procreate and continue the species Instead their life is dominated by the pursuit of distraction and entertainment physical and emotional but rarely spiritual As genetically designed humans they have been created along certain standardised types a majority of which seem to be sexuals designed to seek uick gratification Into the story comes Luce a renegade who dreams of freeing the remains of humanity from their automatic systems and android distractions returning them to a simpler life She also seeks a mate with which to have a child Her meeting and relationship with Randal the manager of the future shopping mall that hasn t seen a human arrival in years forms the central storyline Stuart explores the nature of love and desire mercilessly There is as a warning to the faint hearted a strong yet never explicit sexual aspect to the book which is absolutely essential to the narrative In revealing the shallow nature of characters Stuart does what all great sci fi does he reflects metaphorically on our own society in this case the push towards instant gratification The mirror he hold up to us does not shine a pretty refection Contrasted with the humans are the android characters They provide both an audience to the humans and a judgement upon them If anyone comes out of the book with respect it is these initially inhuman members of the cast If I had any criticism of the book it is a purely personal one I prefer to get on with at least one character in the story and here I didn t find myself warming to any of them Did that stop me from enjoying the story Not at all The characters were crafted specifically to get a reaction and it worked flawlessly And the story kept me thinking about it for days afterwards In conclusion this is a well put together story that is very easy to read It deals with its uestions in an adult way so be warned some scenes and language may shock If that doesn t worry you then read this story it is thought provoking beautifully written with an stylish economy of words and clever I shall certainly look forward to starting Stuart s trilogy

Review The Methuselah Strain Stuart Aken ´ 8 Read & download The Methuselah Strain Download ↠ 8 Please note this edition is no longer available Please see the new edition published by Fantastic Books Publishing The new edition is enhanced and has a new sectionFinding a suitable partner from the remnants of mankind isn’t easy for Lu I had trouble getting into this at first Not that it isn t well written it is The author tasked himself with writing a novelette a story with the complexity of a novel and the brevity of a short story As a result the writing is economical nothing wasted nothing extraneous Every word countsI was also impressed with how thoroughly author Stuart Aken knows his imagined future world from the geographical political economic and technological changes to the smallest details of everyday life Aken writes about it all with the confident unhesitating familiarity of one who has lived thereInitially I was put off by all the sex Not that it s gratuitous and once I came to understand its role in this future world I understood its place in the story Still there s a lot of itI m glad I kept reading though and I really enjoyed the latter half which was thought provoking I found myself asking Yeah what about that And I had to chuckle that even hundreds of years into the future some old fashioned values still hold sway It put me in mind of Star Trek and how no matter how many worlds the Enterprise crew visited or how many different types of aliens and civilizations they encountered being human was always the best way to beThe ending was a complete surprise

Review The Methuselah Strain Stuart Aken ´ 8 Read & download The Methuselah Strain Download ↠ 8 Cy especially when she discovers that automation tempts than fleshAs the Prime Renegade plans the disabling of automatic systems that support the dwindling human population she seeks a man to love and to father her child The usual route of The Methuselah Strain by Stewart Aken is a story with a frightening view of the future world After a devastating asteroid shower the population has grown so small that a normal person can go for years without coming into view of another human face This is not as lonely as it may sound because technology has so advanced that through computer programs and with the aid of robots virtually any act is possibleIn fact people no longer bother to even reproduce because anyone still alive has been genetically altered so that any ageing has been virtually stopped This is why when a technical wizard decides that she would enjoy a natural life she instigates unspeakable actions through through that same technology she once served How better to get others to agree with her beliefs
