5.0 out of 5 stars A great series of sci-fi books., January 13, 2017
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Post-Human Omnibus Edition (1-4) (Post-Human Series) (Kindle Edition)
This series of 4 books is an interesting story related to the inter-relationship of artificial intelligence and humans. Each book could stand on its own, but seeing the whole development definitely adds to the immersion I like to have when reading.

The technology seems a little far-fetched to me, but people in the 50's would have had trouble seeing some of the realities of today. :)

Well written and engaging, I liked how each book took a leap forward from the previous book, since each one, although related, had a different feel because of the issues being confronted by the characters. There was a continuity, but it wasn't simply a continuation of one simple plot with the action spread over 4 books, it is almost like real life, where each phase of our life is dependent on the others, but has its own unique flavor.

Definitely worth reading for science fiction fans!

There are first four books in this series.

Samantha before going on a mission under Special Forces Command to Spaceport
America on an extraction mission which does not go as planned.

He falls and wakes up fourteen years later in a secret hidden faculty where he finds
that Samantha is remarried to the old professor Aldous Gibson (although neither are
old now - they have used the tech to keep themselves young and now, they are
called post human as is Craig and wanted by the government. Craig is angry and
stalks off. But soon he is needed as the faculty is attacked by Chinese A.I. and
he is injected with an experimental... Read more

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing series!, September 24, 2016
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Post-Human Omnibus Edition (1-4) (Post-Human Series) (Kindle Edition)
The first three books of this collection are simply amazing. It is a well thought out science fiction story that has plausible science in the context of it's own narrative. (It doesn't contradict itself, and rather than just telling you you wouldn't understand it an explanation is given.) The explanations it gives are also simple enough that anyone with enough of an interest will understand what it is talking about as well.

The characters come across as real people. I do feel like the main character of the first book changes in the second book to the point you would think he is a different person. However, a lot of time passes between the first and second book, and the second book focuses on a different character. The first book is also much more subjective than the second and third.

I only have one complaint about this series. As individual books they are amazing. The first three books being bundled together makes perfect sense as well since together they make... Read more
