Publisher's Summary

Life is a fast-paced thriller with a satirical, conspiracy backdrop. 

This is part one of a trilogy. Each book stands by itself but grows in intensity with each subsequent book. 

Life: A young computer hacker, Robinhood of the future, discovers our world is manipulated through our thought, created by the government's raising the tax rate to astronomical levels to enslave mankind's thoughts into poverty. Now he must join "The Uprising," to fight the powers, and accept his new role as their leader.

A hacker that desires freedom

Codename: TaxMan, which garnered his name from his eloquent achievement of hacking into the California brown bag tax structure to disperse the money to his offshore account, and other Life's that were off the grid.

The government system that is entrenched over the Lifer's eyes has taken their thoughts and forced these Life-Hackers to spring up off the grid that is now the technological dystopian age, coined after the revolution had ended five years ago.

The governments across the globe want to eliminate these Life-Hackers and control the population taking more of their tax revenue when they give the TaxMan an ultimatum to program a new application to take more of the Lifers' income. This will force more Life's on the street, and he refuses until they take his girlfriend hostage, and his world is flipped upside down where now his choice will be to help the Uprising, the government, or stay true to himself.

This is a fast-paced satirical setting that is laced with different elements of conspiracy and thriller. The book commonly asks the same question of what is really going on? Do anyone of us know, or are we all searching in the wrong place?

Life is the first book in the Life trilogy thrillers series. The subsequent books are aptly titled Death and Birth. These books are meant to explore Life in a different fast-paced, satirical, thriller, conspiracy style.

Very realistic, action-packed trip to the future!

This is a fantastic, first book in the well written and well thought out series. I definitely will be looking for the next books in this trilogy. Computers and what can be done with them now in this world is a great topic. And when you expand the scope of computer abilities, as is happening almost daily, and throw in hackers, it makes for a great book storyline. I would classify this as a must-read! And I would classify it as a must listen because the narration is really good and very enjoyable

Interesting take on a conspiracy theory.

I found it hard to review this book without just starting to tell the story.
Basically it's a satirical view of a divided multiclass society in the future who all of them are been controlled by the government through taxation and brainwashing. Leaving people with very little individual reasoning. Again an upraising is about to happen. But who is behind it? The people or the government who might allow this in other to strengthen their hold over the population even more. And for how long has this control been going on? Samples are shown through earlier centuries that this is nothing new.
The book is not left with a cliffhanger but it does leave enough possibilities for a continuing saga. I probably would read a follow-up to see how TaxMan deals with it all.
Kira Omans did a nice job in bringing the story to Audio but I did go back to the the kindle version when done to reread some passage in the book. I have no problem recommending both the Audio and Kindle version if you like this genre.
