    One of the best things science fiction can offer is a fresh analysis of what it means to be human. This book delivers on that analysis - in spades. Ordinarily, a review shouldn't provide a synopsis, but since one is not provided by Amazon.com, I'll provide a brief one. The setting is Earth, one thousand years in the future. The world is populated by humans ("premen"), genetically perfected humans ("trumen"), genetically modified soldiers ("mumen") and gods, who are part human, part celestial matter.

    What made the experience of listening to Brother to Demons, Brother to Gods the most enjoyable?

    There's something innocent about this early science fiction. A little corny and a bit melodramatic. But surprisingly engaging and more so as it goes along. Like some of those early Star Trek episodes that draw us in despite their obvious theatrics. But at the core lies a certain honesty and innocence that resonate.

    I give a lot of credit to the narrator's performance which really carries the story along with energy and control.
