What if you could live forever? What if you would rather not? Some people long for immortality. Christine Amsden shows how immortality can be a disease in The Immortality Virus.
A woman blacklisted as a private investigator is mysteriously summoned to a rich man who is also under suspicion for murder. Watched from all sides, she has no idea who to believe and trust. What started off as a job to find a missing person has become something much bigger.
The story has a well developed plot that is set at a steady pace that is not too fast nor too slow. The plot keeps the reader engaged and guessing as to what is really happening and what could possibly happen next. I like that in a story.
Ms. Amsden's writing style is easy to read and not too intimidating considering what she is writing about. I have found way too often that many of the science fiction stories write in a manner that is confusing and lack in explanation. Ms. Amsden gives the reader the right amount of knowledge they need as they read. If you are not a big science fiction or futuristic reader like me, this book will actually appeal to you as you will be able to follow it easily and enjoy it.
Ms. Amsden does an excellent job weaving a story that keeps you wanting to turn the page and keeps you engaged. I'm not big on this genre, but I enjoyed the book and highly recommend it especially if you like the genres it falls into.
