Early Book Review: The Postmortal by Drew Magary

The Postmortal by Drew Magary is a fascinating piece of fiction that is due to be released on August 30 2011. It is a frightening glimpse at humanity, including the capacity for good and evil inside us all. The novel is fast-paced, endearing, and one that stays with you long after you finish the book. I finished reading it a week ago, and am still dreaming about the details and characters within the story. The novel is a dystopian vision, a cautionary tale, a witty morality tale, a revenge fable with tones of noir, and an action adventure story. The book's narrative is introduced through John's blog entries and collections of news or media tidbits that he saved. After taking the cure for aging, John Farrell initially revels in the fact that old age can not kill him. Readers join John in his sixty years as a 29-year-old. However, there are still plenty of things, and people, that can hurt or kill him. Readers join him as deals with life: the love, pain, grief, and terror of a normal lifetime as well as the issue that arise from living in a time of revelations and revolutions.
