    The Unincorporated Man is a provocative social/political/economic novel that takes place in the future, after civilization has fallen into complete economic collapse. This reborn civilization is one in which every individual is incorporated at birth and spends many years trying to attain control over his or her own life by getting a majority of his or her own shares. Life extension has made life very long indeed.

    I rarely ever write reviews for books because most people usually say what I want to say. I felt I needed to comment on this book.

    Simply put, it was fantastic! Character development was well thought out, and well balanced. The story line was suspenseful and kept me engrossed. One of the best parts about this story was not only was I able to sympathize with the protagonist (a given) but at many times I also could sympathize with the antagonist. It's one of the few times that I've read/listened to a book and have actually wavered as to whether I wanted the protagonist to change his beliefs.

    There are some unanswered questions but not anything that needed to be wrapped up by this book. I can't wait to see some of those questions answered.

    I found the journal at work. Well, I don't know if you'd call it work, but that's where I found it. It's the lost journal of Nikola Tesla, one of the greatest inventors and visionaries ever. Before he died in 1943, he kept a notebook filled with spectacular claims and outrageous plans.

    It was entertaining and funny. Would've been 5 stars if the protagonist was better developed as well as the underlying connections of the people in the multiverse. It made up for its lack of depth with its entertainment value most of the time. While the narration was generally good, I found myself wishing there had been more difference in tone or accent between Chip and his best friend. I would recommend it to a friend.

    To the Kleese, the Earth is nothing more than a planet full of conscripts to fight in their numerous wars of aggression. The Kleese are one of three large Galactic Empires that control the majority of the galaxy. To them, Earth is an extremely dangerous planet due to the aggressiveness of the humanoid species that inhabits it. The humans that inhabit Earth will make excellent conscripts, but something must be done to prevent them from expanding out into the galaxy.

    Horrible narration. Too fast, no inflections, no emotion. I felt like text to speech engine could've done better. Couldn't finish the book.
