Into the Wild

Read Immortal Life: A Soon To Be True Story Online Free - An ancient mogul has bought the power to live forever, but the strong young body he plans to inhabit has other ideas. The battle for immortal life begins.

Immortal Life. A fantasy. An impossible dream. For now, maybe. But as we speak the moguls of Big Tech are pouring their mountain of wealth into finding a cure for death. Don’t tell them they won’t succeed.

None of these titans is richer than Arthur Vogel. This inventor, tech tycoon, and all-round monster has amassed trillions (with a T) and rules over a corporate empire stretching all the way to Mars. The newest—and most expensive—life extension technology has allowed him to live to 127 years, but time is running out. His last hope to escape the inevitable lies with Gene, a human being specifically created for the purpose of housing Arthur’s consciousness. The plan is to discard his used-up old carcass and come to a second life in a young, strong body with all appropriate working parts. But there’s a problem: Gene. He may be artificial, but he is a person. And he has other ideas.

As Arthur sets off to achieve his goal of world domination, Gene hatches a risky plan of his own. The forces against him are very, very rich, extremely determined, and used to getting what they pay for. The battle between creator and creation is joined as the two minds wrestle for control of one body.

This story is real. The tech is in development. The sponsors are the titans of industry well known to you. Eternal life may very soon be at the fingertips of those who can afford it. Mixing brisk action, humor, and wicked social commentary, Immortal Life imagines a day just around the corner. Welcome to a brave new world that is too familiar for comfort—and watch the struggle for humanity play out to the bitter end.

Stanley Bing's zany science fiction novel "Immortal Life" sparks along the cutting edge of immortality technology. Arthur Vogel, the solar system’s wealthiest man, has no intention of going gentle into that good night. At 127, his body is mostly made up of synthetic parts around a “desiccated nug...

Immortality, the final frontier. Well, one of them anyway, there's also space, of course, for purists. But in this book space has been conquered, Mars renamed Musk (yikes) and technology has reached such extensive global prevalence that death remains the only thing to conquer. Until recently it's...

The idea was interesting. Immortality!!! "Soon to be true story" Sounds interesting right? Hope not. Given the circumstances in the book. I really hope not. Anyways the book was interesting. I like the concept. A page turner for sure. Go for this if you like a good sci-fi thriller. Note: I received a...

I won an uncorrected proof of this book in a Goodreads giveaway. Arthur Vogel is the richest man in the world and is 127 years old. Those who can afford it, replace whatever is ailing them to extend their life. A mixture of biologic and mechanical parts. It isn't all hunky dory though. They're pra...

So when I saw that a old mans memories or brain was going to be put into another person. I was like oh gosh here we go with this again. I am saying this because not to long ago I just watched two movies where this happened. Ryan Reynold's Self/less and Kevin Costner's Criminals which also had Rya...

Immortal Life: A Soon To Be True Story by Stanley Bing Imagine a world where machines rule. Corporations are in charge, and the lifespan has gone up to 120 years thanks to computer technology that can replace dying organs (via 3 D printing of cloned cells). Unfortunately, it has its limits. Arthur...

This was a really witty book with a powerful message that just didn't quite hit the spot for me. It tells the story of Arthur, a billionaire in the latter half of the 21st century who wants to live for ever and Gene, the artificial human who is created so that Arthur can upload his consciousness...

Late in the 21st century the really rich have found ways to extend their lives well past 100. The richest of them all is Arthur Vogel who has made it to 127 by replacing or enhancing much of his original equipment but he's about to hit the wall and knows it. So he has a technical genius who's als...

I'm not a fan of science fiction but Immortal Life has such a promising premise that I couldn't resist. I enjoyed the first half of the book because the story seemed so plausible. With the technology we have in 2018 it seems a small jump to downloading someone's aging personality into younger bei...

A futuristic look at how the wealthy and powerful have found a way to cheat death. Arthur is a mean old buzzard with a much younger trophy wife/nurse and more money than God but he is a man in pieces - literally. Every morning he straps on appendages, inserts his eyeball, connects to any number o...
