If I had stopped reading this at the 70% mark I would have given it 5 stars. As it is the book is a great science-fiction read. Just towards the end the pacing becomes a little erratic and rushed for me. I will be reading the next book in this series as i found the story fascinating and the character John Perry very interesting. Still not as interesting as what he learns in the CDF. The promise for a second life is one that many do not have to struggle to envision. I could only hope to have one so exciting, though I cold do with one so deadly and violent. I would recommend this book to any reader looking for a classic sci-fi tale with plenty of action and a good bit of humor added in.
