Review by: David Gelbart on Aug. 24, 2014 :
Chock full of thoughtful speculation about mind uploading and virtual reality, wrapped up in an interesting plot.

Great story, well written. Found myself arguing with the characters a couple times. Will be looking for more works by this author.

What a great story! written with a lot of depth. I particularly enjoyed the father's anguish over the irrevocable decision to cross the physical divide for his daughter. The relationship with his mom was done quite well also. I actually would give this 4.5 stars. The spelling errors are distracting for me and reduce the total pleasure. I would be happy to assist the author with this in any way he likes.
I am looking forward to more from PA.

This is worth your time. Arnesen writes well and does a good job exploring what it would mean to live as a disembodied "upload." There are a lot of expositions and monologues in this, but it's okay: they're interesting in themselves. The plot is interesting, the characters are pretty good, and the points he raises are worth thinking about. I enjoyed it.

Good read, very well segmented for short reads while on the go.

The novel starts with a philosophical discussion of what it means to be ones self, and makes the assertion that while the neural connections of the corporal flesh define us, that this definition has the ability to transcend and exist outside the flesh. The story then takes you on an adventure which seeks to underscore the novel's assertion and quickly transitions the reader to amazing possibilities when one's mind is able to scale free.

Excellent discussion of what it means to be human in a world where you can upload and live in a digial world.

I would have gladly paid money for this book, as a free book it is an absolute steal! Note that Amazon currently are charging for this book, it was by reading the "inside cover" of the sample on Amazon that I was led here with even more excellent free books!

So I have 2 things to Patrick for!

Patrick Arnesen literally breathes life into the software he's dedicated his life to creating. In this novel, he explores what happens when the people you love decide to digitally remaster themselves by dumping their minds into a computer simulation.
I enjoyed the adventure and mystery parts of the story, but I most liked the philosophical musings on conciousness, software, and just how much of a gap there is between the two. There were even a couple of good surprises along the way.
