    Roger Torraway watched in horror as the monster lurched, toppled over and died. Project Man Plus had gone suddenly and drastically wrong. The race to colonize Mars was too important, too costly, and America was already too committed, for plans to be scrapped. They would have to make a new Martian. And Roger Torraway was it, candidate for the endless surgery, operation after painful operation, that would enable him to survive on that faraway planet.

    Sanford Rosenberg says: "More timely now than ever"
    "Dated and poorly narrated"
    Overall

    After listening to Frederik Pohl's Gateway I was really looking forward to Man Plus. It was sadly disappointing and found myself skipping chapters to finish this book. The narration is very monotone, added with extremely technical jargon making it felt like a lecture about technology-unlike the brilliant character development of Gateway. This may have been groundbreaking for its time but nowhere near the character development of Gateway.

    If you're a fan of Frederik Pohl, pass this one.
