I'm not going to lie. I 100% requested this book on the basis of the synopsis...or should I say, one sentence in the synopsis: For fans of television shows Black Mirror and Westworld, this compelling, mind-bending novel is a twisted look into the future, exploring how far we will go to remake ourselves into the perfect human specimen and what it means to be human at all. Are you sold yet? Because I definitely was.

This book was absolutely amazing. Spanning over hundred of years it shows the evolution of humanity with the advances in science that have been made. This book was brilliant and thought provoking as well as terrifying and undeniably real. This book is something that can’t be missed in 2018/2019.
I didn't realize this was an anthology when I had requested it, so I was a little skeptical since I am not the biggest fan of anthologies but Ohmygod ...more
Full of creative talent in bringing altered life and new insights into futuristic reading.
I was so excited for this one and very much expecting to love it, so I was really sad that it didn't completely click for me.

This was such an awesome book. I takes place in different parts of the future and all of the stories are connected by one guy. In the future people are changing the way they look and its crazy to the point where they might not even look human. Everyone should definetely read this book.
I requested this book from NetGalley based on a recommendation from an author I love:
"An alternately charming and horrifying exploration of what it means to be human and how far we'll go in pursuit of personal and societal 'perfection.' I devoured this book." --Kiersten White, New York Times bestselling author of And I Darken
It lived up to that! The book is a series of short stories, each with a different set of characters living out possible futures that employ today's emerging technologies mor ...more
I was so pleasantly surprised by how much I loved this book! I was given an ARC by the publisher, and having really enjoyed Dayton's Seeker series, I thought this would be of a similar ilk. It's just completely different, and really really special.
As some other reviewers have stated, yes, it is in the same family as the Black Mirrors of today, but "Stronger, Faster, and More Beautiful" is a more intimate look at the good, the bad and the gnarly of where technology could take us. These several sh ...more
