    1 thought on “Immortality Option

    1. This is a sequel to The Code of the Lifemaker. I really liked that one beyond expectations. Unlike other Hogan books I'd read, it was well-paced, not preachy or of any recognizably political flavor, was free of eye-glazing over-detail--and had an original premise: On Titan, abandoned machines of a dead alien civilization have evolved a mechanical "biosphere" of robots. It had characters more memorable than usual for Hogan, particularly Karl Zambendorf, purported psychic, who returns in this book [...]

    2. I loved the first book. The idea of a mechanical version of a biosphere with evolution and DNA and everything was awesome. This didn't add much new. There were the creator aliens, that were kind of annoying because they were jerks.The plot took a sudden left turn, like the book became a different book. I think I remember liking the main character before. Today I might not be so impressed by the "smartest guy in the room, who is also a conman" type character. He was not featured so much in this, [...]

    3. A superb continuation with characters we've grown to, if not love, at least admire somewhat. Some of the science is a little dry on occasion, but it all fits in so neatly and works with the story so well that it's not a problem. The sheer audacity of card tricks fooling a super artificial intelligence kept me chuckling and chortling, and the pace picked up marvelously toward the end in a similar way to Realtime Interrupt.

    4. I did not like this one nearly as much as its predecessor, The Code of the Lifemaker. This continues the story from that volume by filling in what is happening to the aliens, and how this whole thing worked out.It was interesting, it held my attention, but it's probably not something I will ever reread. I had some trouble believing the ending was "plausible", whatever plausible means in this science-fiction world.

    5. What happens when machines evolve to survive in their new environment. Then their founders come along and try to take over. The Immortality Option is a thought provoking view into what happens when an artificial life form has millions of years on its own to evolve, only to have to confront the ambitions of their makers.

    6. This is the sequel to Code of the Lifemaker. Here we get to meet the creators of the Taloids from the first book. It was a fun book that came at the story from two directions: from the view of the robots and from the creators.

    7. I liked this story a lot. I realize it is far from my normal fantasy but this scifi kept itself together and produced a good story with plenty of flow and interesting science to keep me entertained. I like it. =)

    8. I have this book, but it says that it's a sequel to Code of The Lifemaker. I will have to find a copy of that first to see if I want to read (or even keep) this book.

    9. Very good. Hogan is incredibly imaginative and couples that with excellent writing skills and inventive plots. I have a signed copy of this.

    10. Interesting novel. This book is sort of a sequel to Code of the Lifemaker (another good Hogan novel). The continuing story of a society of evolved sentient androids and how they came to be.

    11. I'm finished reading this book. I learned that the human race can conquer the universe with the help of GENIUS and the LIFEMAKER.
