Overview

RepoMen (The Repossession Mambo) by Eric Garcia

In a brave new world, you'll never have to die . . . as long as you keep up with the payments.

Thanks to the technological miracle of artiforgs, now you can live virtually forever. Nearly indestructible artificial organs, these wonders of metal and plastic are far more reliable and efficient than the cancer-prone lungs and fallible kidneys you were born with—and the Credit Union will be delighted to work out an equitable payment plan. But, of course, if you fall delinquent, one of their dedicated professionals will be dispatched to track you down and take their product back.

This is the story of the making—and unmaking—of one of the best Repo Men in the extraction business, who finds his soul when he loses his heart . . . and then he has to run.

Okay, I get it. You saw the movie because of Jude Law, right? If you actually enjoyed the storyline, check out the original. REPO! The Genetic Opera is clever, dark, funny, and so well-written! This book was published in 2010 . REPO! was released in 2008. This is a ripoff of Darren Lynn Bousman and Terrance Zdunich's (as well as countless others) hard work and genius. Just search 'Repo! the Genetic Opera' on youtube and start listening to the soundtrack. It's really amazing. If you prefer this after seeing R! TGO, whatever. I seriously doubt it, though.

Does this have so many stars? Do a bit of research and you'll find that Repo! The Genetic Opera is the orianal and is much better! So before praising this book too much watch that, and maybe you'll get something that comes in a little glass vial from the Graverobber!

So the concept is great, the idea of organ repossession, even if he wasnt the first to use it. And with all the cool movie previews and commercials figured, okay books got to be great,better then the movie. Wrong! This is a case of the movie is better then the book, much like Roger Rabbit. So i toiled through this book, which dealt with how much a looser the main character was, and how miserable of a husband he was (5 times). The whole time hes talking about running from other bio-repo men and your expecting exciting escapes and action and some great fianle, and all you get is one real fight scene that lasted like 3 pages, and a very sad closure. So if given the chance, dont sign on the line and take this artifical book, leave it for someone else your better off without it.

I tumbled headlong into a ridiculous crush on Jude Law after watching this so I had to read the book. I am not sure if I liked it because I was envisioning Jude the whole time or it really was a good book. The concepts about artificial organs seem very possible and I like the sinister-if shocking-idea of repossessing them. I was satisfied to read this cover to cover in a day so despite my Jude crush, I think it was a good book and an interesting read.
