    In this sequel to Post-Human, humanity will be forced to face a future more advanced than it could have imagined if it wants to survive. Nineteen months have passed since the A.I. turned against humanity and was subsequently destroyed. In the meantime, James Keats has turned over the A.I.'s powers to a non-intelligent, easily controlled operating system. He and Thel have left the planet and spent six months vacationing on Venus, which has been newly terraformed without the consent or knowledge of the Governing Council.

    Story
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I would recommend this audiobook to anyone. The story line is easy to grasp and Ray Chase keeps the narration exciting. The Post-Human series takes a look at what man and machine can become.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Other than the human/machine connection and evolution of man, I particularly liked the fact that I wasn't left hanging as situations played out.


    Which character – as performed by Ray Chase – was your favorite?

    Old-Timer... his personality and verbal dueling with James is so down to earth (pun intended).


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes... and I did. I put on my ear buds and kept it with me throughout the day as I worked.


    Any additional comments?

    Even though I've read the Kindle edition of the books, I decided to purchase the audio version of the "Post-Human" series. I rarely listen to audiobooks. I'm ADD and it's very easy for me to get distracted from the narration. I didn't have that problem with Ray Chase's narration. His voice was soothing and didn't grate; he was very easy to follow.

    The future should have been perfect. Microscopic robots known as nans could repair any damage to your body, keep you young by resetting your cellular clocks, and allow you to download upgrades like intelligence, muscle strength, and eyesight. You were supposed to be able to have anything you wanted with a simple thought, to be able to fly without the aid of a machine, to be able to live forever. But when a small group of five terraformers working on Venus return to Earth, they discover that every other human in the solar system has been gruesomely murdered.

    Would you consider the audio edition of Post-Human to be better than the print version?

    I will always prefer the printed book, but I thoroughly enjoyed listening to it being read.


    What other book might you compare Post-Human to and why?

    Before reading the Post-Human series, I had never read a book that compared to the concepts that David Simpson puts out there. The only other comparison I can make is to The Matrix. The idea of a all encompassing A.I. that guides humanity wasn't something I thought about before reading Post-Human.


    Have you listened to any of Ray Chase’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    This is the first time I've heard Ray Chase. He has a very pleasant voice reminiscent of the voice of Sam Neill... an actor with a distinct accent and way of speaking.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    OMG... This book grabbed my attention from the very beginning and didn't let go! This is the book and audiobook that started my love of the Post-Human series!

    The Post-Human Trilogy is done, but the Post-Human series is just heating up! Human Plus is fourth story in the smash hit science fiction series. Not exactly a sequel, not exactly a prequel, Human Plus will defy expectations. No matter what you thought was coming next, you're in for a surprise!

    If you could sum up Human Plus in three words, what would they be?

    Thrilling, thought-provoking, ingenious


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Human Plus?

    When the A.I. sacrificed himself for humanity.


    Have you listened to any of Ray Chase’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Ray Chase is fairly consistent in the performance he gives in the 3 books I've listened to.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I laughed and cried throughout. I was very happy to learn that the A.I. hadn't been destroyed, that it had all been a test.
