Neuroscientist Alice Kurz and her team have developed a technology that could lead to immortality. For Alice, it’s a chance to develop a cure for Alzheimer’s, the disease that destroyed her grandmother. Test subject Eliot Stearns knows nothing about this. He believes he’s part of a five-day isolation study, locked in the lab, his only contact with the rest of the world through videoconference with the research team. Eliot and Alice grow close through deep conversations exploring the world’s oldest stories, the nature of consciousness, and what it truly means to be human. But everything changes when Eliot discovers that the study is not what it seems to be, and five days of isolation could last the rest of his life.

I really enjoyed reading this book. It was well-written and I truly liked the characters. The plot was well-thought out and executed. I wasn't expecting the plot twists. While the story is squarely in the science-fiction genre, it seems to be realistic and possible in the near future. It gave me lots to think about. Please write more!
Well-written with an excellent plot and some unexpected twists. The science in this science fiction seems quite plausible. I highly recommend this book and am eagerly waiting for more from this author.
Very intelligently written with a captivating story – I highly recommend this book. The characters are interesting and well developed. The story addresses fascinating questions in a new light: Where does humanity begin and end? Where is the line between technology enhancing life versus replacing life? The author does a great job of balancing science, philosophy and an exciting story full of twists and turns.
