His days are spent in the refuse of humanity and running with a teenage gang called The Dead Bones lead by his brother Charlie. But when Peter finds beauty in the world in the shape of Alba, an advanced model female nexhuman, he finds purpose...and love. When Charlie and The Dead Bones destroy Peter's dreams for the future, Peter embarks on a quest to rebuilt the object of his obsession.Exploring themes such as cybernetics, consumerism, robotics, and transcendence, Nexhuman expands on classic science fiction to build a world as deep and searching as its main character."Francesco Verso brings classic cyberpunk attitude to grand romantic obsession...a thoughtful meditation on what it means to be human and an exciting peek into a world that is just around the corner." --James Patrick Kelly (Nebula, Locus and Hugo Award winner)… (mere)

A mixed bag. Well written but not a totally plausible storyline. It's basically about trans-humanism but the central character is unlikeable, the females are just names with random characteristics assigned, and the world-building is a bit jumbled. Also, if I never hear the word "kipple" again I will be pleased! ( )

Lots of others have reviewed this work, describing the plot, characters, a various messages they found in the writing; and so I will leave it to you to read their reviews. I found the first person dialog for the main character to be depressing and sad. Perhaps this is due to the author's description of life in the future, but as one reviewer pointed out we only see a segment of the population in the future, the bottom of the economic heap, so to speak. Consequently, it is no surprise that the outlook and prospect from this vantage are depressing. Fortunately the book is short and quickly read. ( )

This was a brilliant, literary, science-fiction read. While it won't necessarily be to the taste of those who like fast-paced stories, it has exceptional depth, and, as the best works of the genre do, it provokes a thoughtful examination of our times, our future, and what it means to be human.

I received a complimentary copy of this book via a LibraryThing Early Reviewer giveaway. Many thanks to all involved in providing me with this opportunity. ( )

Slightly grimy throughout without much in the way of redeeming features. The concept is supposed to be an examination of the possibilities raised by uploading of consciousness to AI stacks, but instead it's mostly a boy's quest for true love with an android, and his search for her dismembered parts by scrabbling about in the mounds of rubbish accumulated by modern society.

We get little to no information about how the wealthy live or accumulate such rubbish, or why or how any such transition from our current society occurred. Certainly there's no implication that the uploaded 'humans' were causative agents, instead it just seems to be a background for our protagonist to struggle against his brother for the right to the female droid's parts. There are no sympathetic characters and no women of note at all. Nor was the world interesting as it seemed to consist solely of rubbish mounds and an unspecified metropolis - again not clear how this maintained itself in any way against the tides of junk washing around it. The only point of even slight novelty was a very brief foray into some more novel technologies suppressed (of course) by a controlling corporation, sadly no implications of these were explored and they never featured again.

It's just possible that the original Italian was more readable, but in general the translation seemed to be into good quality english, and it was the original source material that was lacking. ( )
