Science Fiction at its best! Totally blew my mind LOL...

I won this book on goodreads, and I thank you very much. Mr. Leth has written a very good book. However, most of the technical information was over my head. You don't really have to understand it all to know what is going on in the book. I just hope that the experiments they do in the book aren't really feasible. It would be very scary if they were.

I cannot recommend this book enough. It is incredibly smart and full of heart. The science fiction is mind blowing and so well conceived that it seems a definite possibility. Mr. Leth also undertook many wonderful subjects throughout the narrative such as conscience, morality, ethics, etc. This is definitely a book I will be re-reading.

Mesa Vista is an incubator for tech start-ups. Eliot Stearns, at a loss for two weeks from his normal job, applies to participate in a study at the Rocky Mountain Neurocybernetics Research Institute. After all, having nanobots create a map of his brain to further research into Alzheimer's and dementia cures sounds like a laudable cause, and solves his problem of two weeks of unpaid leave that he can't really afford. It isn't until he goes looking for a place to save some private files, and finds ...more

I wish I could have rated this 4.5 stars. While I find most Science Fiction to be unbelievable, I was pleasantly surprised by this first book by Leth. I enjoyed the challenge this book had on my thought process and at the same time was entertained by reading a well composed story. The fully developed characters and a story line that kept me intent on following along were a pleasant surprise. I can't wait to see what comes next from this author.

Very intelligently written with a captivating story – I highly recommend this book.
The characters are interesting and well developed. The story addresses fascinating questions in a new light: Where does humanity begin and end? Where is the line between technology enhancing life versus replacing life? The author does a great job of balancing science, philosophy and an exciting story full of twists and turns.

I really enjoyed reading this book. It was well-written and I truly liked the characters. The plot was well-thought out and executed. I wasn't expecting the plot twists. While the story is squarely in the science-fiction genre, it seems to be realistic and possible in the near future. I received this book through Goodreads giveaway.

With two computer science degrees from MIT and over 30 years in engineering R&D, I try to keep the technical material in my fiction realistic -- or at least a plausible extension of what we know today.

I released my first novel, Phoenix Afterlife, in October 2015.

I am currently working on my second novel.
