"Human Again" tells the story of Roy, an Israeli soldier who is killed in action, except he wasn't. He wakes up from 300 years of cryo-sleep to a changed world that has suffered the ecological collapse that is no doubt in store for this Earth. Roy discovers that the leadership of the survivors have taken extreme measures to ensure their citizens' survival and quality of life. The future is not bright and shiny in the underground city-bunker, but Roy works to acclimate to the pros and cons of his new surroundings. As he tries to find his purpose, he discovers that all is not as it seems and that he may never know who he can trust and who he cannot.
This book was a page-turner for me. The world is mysterious, the characters are interesting, and the plot pacing is excellent. I had to know what Roy would learn next and how he would cope with events. "Human Again" is Book 1 of the Cryonemesis series and I'm looking forward to the next installment. Moran Chaim is an author to watch out for!
Human Again has a very plausible and scary back story that I can actually see happening; after a global climate crisis, society collapses and only the rich and powerful can survive underground.
Roy, the main character is a IDF soldier (should be bad ass,right?) that was frozen in cryogenic containment for 300 years. When he wakes up underground he has no idea what happened to the world and why he was brought back.
The story takes place mostly underground, in a grey concrete shelter city, where people are hooked to a real life VR simulation so they could spend their days in mere sanity, rather then living like ants in the dark.
The main theme of the plot, as the title implies is to find the balance between staying human and using technology. Like we see in our time, technology could save lives but also destroy the climate and numb our senses.
But don't think this book is just a complex analogy, it's a fast paced, action filled novel. I was surprised by some of the chapters' action descriptions.
A fine read indeed!
It was an easy, exciting read.
The fantasy, post apocalyptic world that the author describes does have certain elements borrowed from other fantasy worlds yet I still felt it was very different than others i've read about or seen in the movies.
