A MAN LIVES 573 YEARS! HERE IS HIS STORY….READ IT ONCE AND YOU WILL READ IT AGAIN!!
I should state therefore, that I, Anthony Rogers, am, so far as I know, the only man alive whose normal span of eighty-one years of life has been spread over a period of 573 years. To be precise, I lived the first twenty-nine years of my life between 1898 and 1927; the other fifty-two since 2419. The gap between these two, a period of nearly five hundred years, I spent in a state of suspended animation, free from the ravages of katabolic processes, and without any apparent effect on my physical or mental faculties. Here, once more, is a real science fiction story plus….. It is a story which will make the heart of many readers leap with joy.
This novel is packed with solid ideas about man, civilization, its decline, war, and core characters that deliver. It's not long, just 196 pages, but it's crammed with quick action and a fast moving story so you won't be bored. Come on, take the ride
THOUGHTS FROM AN AVID READER OF THIS NOVEL!!
I recently re-discovered this book after reading it some 20 years ago. I was amazed at the parallels between the Han lifestyle and our own growing dependence on the internet for our commerce and entertainment. Knowing that the story was written in 1919 makes the predictions even more startling. The idea of "gangs" supplanting family life in America is also strangely prophetic. As to the story itself, what a fantastic tale of American ingenuity overcoming incredible odds! The triumph of the forest-dwelling Americans over the slovenly, city-dwelling Han is at once an inspiration and a cautionary tale. I'd say this seminal "Buck Rogers" tale is far superior to the pulp science fiction which followed in its footsteps. I'd recommend this book to anyone interested in early 20th Century sci-fi, or anyone who just likes a good yarn.
