Spanning some 3,000 years and narrated by multiple voices, Forever Human follows a triangle of characters whose worlds are inextricably linked: Cassius, who remembers his past lives; Henri, who forgets; and Memphis, who may just have a greater awareness of the overarching plan of history than either of them. As Cassius toils on a formula for saving humanity from itself, ...more

Now that I've allowed the story to dwell in my thoughts for a month, I've settled on the best way to describe my experience: reading Forever Human was like viewing a literary kaleidoscope. To be more precise, in the beginning, the kaleidoscope was close up, say at the tip of my nose. What I saw were pretty colors, interesting dialogue and characters, but I struggled to see how or where they fit into a story. As I progressed through the novel, the kaleidoscope was at arms length, then by the end,

If I could give this six stars, I would.

The basic premise is The Master and Margarita, transplanted to modern Melbourne, with the key difference being that I have been three fifths of the way through The Master and Margarita since about 2004, whereas I finished this within a few days. Also it has a giant anthropomorphic dog in the place of the giant anthropomorphic cat.

At first I questioned the idea a bit - obviously no one actually likes Tony Abbott, but he's not exactly Josef Stalin - in fact

Forever Human cleverly intertwines the lives of different characters from Roman times to the present. The plot follows the mathematician Cassius who is trying to formulate an algorithm that will help humanity avoid the mistakes of the past. Cassius is re-born again and again over the centuries and each time must pick up on the slivers of memory from his past lives which will allow him to progress his work a little further. He is aided and sometimes hampered by the artist Henri, and pursued over ...more

Forever Human is a really tough book to read, only at first as for the first thirty pages I was lost. However, if you keep reading you'll be pulled deeper into the characters and start to be more interested in this world. The switch of narrative is a bit jarring and probably won't please a some readers, and this is the point that is probably most difficult to accept about this book for myself. Nevertheless the writer does a wonderful job of fleshing out his characters with flowing dialogue and ...more

I shall start with why I gave it 4 stars not 5. For the first 20-30 pages I found the book very difficult to follow to such a point that I was reading it just for the sake of going on.
Swamped through that hurdle, the story started getting intriguing by the chapter to such a point that I looked forward to have time to read the book.
If you're in for some fantasy time bending, past lives revocations and unorthodox love, lived over and over again through thousands of years than I suggest you grab t
