Yes, but with caveats. I love; satire, sciency fiction, distopian visions of the future, and apocalyptic scenarios. I'm also not afraid of wading through some pretty depressing and unrelenting stories. If that is you than this story might be right up your ally. P.S. His characters were a little two dimensional but I wouldn't get hung up on that, the story is really good.
My favorite aspect of the story was the ideas about life extension, death, and wealth. He did an excellent job of delving into the realities a society might face when approaching the real possibility of technology that can increase lifespan. (I mean technically we're already there with respect to increasing lifespans across the world.)
First time listener to these readers. The experience was without any flaws that I can recall.
This story occasionally made me feel hopeless and angry. It is certainly not uplifting, but few stories with an ounce of truth are.
I loved that this story was about something as mundane as normal peoples lives, and yet was so insightful and beautiful.
The story was often like a mirror that forced me to look at and think about my own life, my motivations, lies I tell myself, and the compromises I have made.
As with all good readers, it only took a few minutes before he became the narrative voice in my head that mimics the one shows up when I'm reading text.
No rename, Freedom is intrinsic to every part of the story and the title is so simple that reading this book gives that word new meaning in the context of everyday life.
