Publisher's Summary

"An insightful dystopian tale with dynamic characters and a surfeit of surprises." (Kirkus Reviews)

The year is 2075 and the human race is dying. Decades of war, famine, and bio-engineering have finally taken their toll, and birth rates have declined to near zero. The leaders of two of the solar system's largest corporations believe they can save humanity, but they will have to break the law to do it.

Restoration will challenge your beliefs about what makes us human while taking you on a wild ride to the Asteroid Belt and beyond. Spanning more than five decades, Restoration explores the moral, physical and ethical consequences of using advanced technologies without fully understanding their effects and implications for our species. It also challenges our definition of what it means to be alive, and it asks us to consider whether the entirety of who we are can be digitized and transferred from one body to another without losing any part of ourselves.

Decent story, Narrator was a bit unfortunate

Overall, this was an ok audiobook. First, the story was decent. I was a little frustrated because the plot line could have developed much quicker. I kept feeling as though the plot would really come in to focus soon. It wasn’t until the epilogue that I realized the story is just as it appears, although there is a much deeper question to be answered that was barely touched upon. If you listen, you’ll understand.

The narrator, however, turned this book from decent to ok. He was boring. Very little inflection was used. The characters all sounded pretty much the same, which made it difficult to follow dialogue. The audio quality was not great, either. It is especially noticeable when you first start the book, but I think I just got used to it as I went along. Honestly, this book is worth reading. I mean that in the literal sense. Read this one. Don’t listen.
