Why I read it: Looked good
Lia Kahn was perfect: rich, beautiful, popular. Until the accident that nearly killed her.
Now she has been downloaded into a new body that only looks human. Lia will never feel pain again, she will never age, and she can't ever truly die.
I really liked the idea of this book. It wasn't really like anything I've read before. It was interesting enough that I wanted to keep reading to find out what happened. I think the biggest problem I had was the lack of likeable characters, and that it was just so darn depressing. Depressing is not really what I'm going for at this time of year.
I also had a hard time understanding the motivations behind some of the characters' actions. It just didn't ring true, or even make sense some of the time. And when I got to the end, I was thinking, "That's it?" I realize this is the start of a trilogy, but I wanted more from it. From the whole book, in fact. I will continue on in the series, because I'm curious to see where it goes. I would reservedly recommend this one, to fans of YA science fiction or futuristic novels.
