Publisher's Summary

What would you do if you were rich, bright, vigorous, virtually immortal—and nearly bored to death? You’d invent a thrill sport....

It's the 23rd century, and Nasir Deepra is 248 years old, wealthy, kept young by all-pervasive nanotechnology, a corporate executive, and bored with life. To spice things up, he has become an Agonist, dipping into war zones—many of them in satellites orbiting the Earth—and filming his daredevil antics. Agonists have a large fan-base who watch them on the Net, and they revel in the attention. A war surf goes badly and the Agonists lose their top ranking amongst surfers, so they decide to up the ante and go to Heaven, a class 10 difficulty war zone, the toughest, in order to get back on top.

Nasir is reluctant to go, since he's on the board of directors that controls Heaven, and he knows why it's a class 10. His younger girlfriend, Sheeba, talks him into it and disaster strikes: Nasir and Sheeba are captured by workers who control Heaven. Nasir has to come to terms with the brutal exploitation he has been a part of and avoid the "disease" that runs rampant amongst Heaven's workers.

    Story
    "Worst listen yet."

    This is a story about nothing, with characters that are vapid and forgettable. No one was likeable, and several times I found myself wondering how long I could keep listening to this worthless dribble.

    At one point even the author asks the question "Why are you still listening?" Only at the very end does the story become somewhat interesting, but the characters are still pathetic. I don't think it was worth all the awful dialog and slow-moving non-existent storyline to get to the end where there was a little bit of interesting twists.

    Buy at your own risk.
