Set in our world, spanning the near to distant futures, Stronger, Faster, and More Beautiful is a novel made up of six interconnected stories that ask how far we will go to remake ourselves into the perfect human specimens, and how hard that will push the definition of “human.”
This extraordinary work explores the amazing possibilities of genetic manipulation and life extension, as well as the ethical quandaries that will arise with these advances. The results range from the heavenly to the monstrous.
This was a genuinely thought provoking and highly engaging set of six stories, imagining a future where bodily enhancement is off the scale, offering both huge advantage but also distinct ethical issues.
The author takes us into the future, first just a little and then further and further down a dark and twisted path for humanity. Each story tells the tale of one affected character, each is utterly compelling and intriguingly believable, offering up human drama on a quietly emotional scale.
Linked by one religious figure and his daughter, the lyrical and involving prose digs you deep into each separate narrative, from a quirky edgy kind of love story to the boy who talks with dolphins and beyond. Each separate tale is fascinating, darkly beautiful and will make you really consider how far might be just too far….
Stronger Faster and More Beautiful is a cautionary tale of our time, done with intuitively intelligent questioning, of the reader, of our world and of exactly what it is that makes us human.
Completely brilliant. Highly Recommended especially if you like your reading to challenge your thinking.
