Bob Johansson has just sold his software company and is looking forward to a life of leisure. There are places to go, books to read, and movies to watch. So it's a little unfair when he gets himself killed crossing the street. Bob wakes up a century later to find that corpsicles have been declared to be without rights, and he is now the property of the state. He has been uploaded into computer hardware and is slated to be the controlling AI in an interstellar probe looking for habitable planets.

It was nerdy but very enjoyable, and I found listening very relaxing. This sci-fi short was a nice break from the longer and complex fantasy I normally read/listen to.

it was okay, but with so many other great books I wouldn't spend my time listening to it again.
