TBR reviewer: Amanda
This story is written from Adam's point of view and his voice is dry, sarcastic and humorous. He often pokes fun at himself and at various famous people from history in little asides. He is by turns both self-deprecating and self-absorbed, but he also comes across as lonely. Without being able to share his true self with anyone, he moves from place to place and life to life. The story is written as a memoir, but there are also little snippets of the "present" at the beginning of each chapter that catch up to where he is and what is happening to Adam.
Without giving away the plot that develops, I can say that the story gently touches on interesting issues of scientific and business ethics without being heavy-handed or preachy. While there are also some scenes of violence, it is not overly disgusting and the other "non-human" creatures that also exist alongside Adam and play parts in the story are interesting as well. Although there are some sex scenes in the book (Adam is quite appreciative of women, even if he is not sure he knows what love feels like anymore), it is not overall a romance as much as it is a mystery and adventure story. I really enjoyed Immortal and look forward to reading about Adam's further adventures.
