Item Description...
Overview
In the future, technology has advanced to the point that people can transfer their consciousness into artificial bodies, so-called personifids - thus living forever. Aphra discovers plans to use the personifid technology to eliminate the ability for these transferred humans to choose between good and evil. The corporation touts it as the ultimate evolution of human morality, but Aphra knows it's a tool to dominate all mankind. The corporation wants her silenced. Assassins, human and machine, close in. Only an outcast couple- people who still hold to an ancient, outlawed faith-have the knowledge and the courage to come to her rescue. Can they prevent this great evil, or will the explosives lodged in Aphra's arm destroy them all before they have the chance?

Reviews - What do our customers think?
4.5 stars Very Enjoyable Read  Mar 21, 2008
I was ready to break into hives in this, because I guessed early on that it might be some religious book - so I expected it to degrade into nonsense. It didn't. What little there was, was more like new age thinking, which is like watered-down Buddhism, which is acceptable to me. No attempt to preach or to convert.

While the structure might need a little architectural shoring up, the story is still a fun thrill-ride, with several surprises and twists that actually made me gasp - took my breath away. Post-apocalyptic sci-fi is practically its own genre (not original to the Matrix, or even to Blade Runner) - it's a staple of science fiction, and that should not be held against this writer.

She's refreshingly original, and amidst all the inventiveness of the plot there was also humor, which sets this story above and apart. I do agree with the this site review, however, that the author brings up many intriguing ideas that might have been interesting to investigate. In this story they're more like a haunting perfume, or a melody heard on the wind - food for thought, as concepts which might soon affect our actual, not just virtual, reality. Questions about the nature of life, when does something cross the line and become a life-form, what is free will, will tease the readers mind as reality evokes haunting moments from this memorable book. If this is a first book, it's an impressive debut.
 
Excellent book!  Jan 7, 2008

This book reads like a genuine sci-fi thriller. Great characters and plot are mixed with truly original genius. I only wish the author would write the sequel. I'm glad I read the actual book before I saw the review comparing it to the Matrix!
 
Thought-provoking!  Sep 2, 2006
A very fast-paced and exciting story, with an intricate and believable world and thought-provoking ideas. The plot twists will keep you turning the pages!
 
Not particularly like the Matrix  Mar 29, 2006
I can only assume the Publisher's Weekly reviewer above is unfamiliar with SF as a genre. If every story with a plot that revolves around the conflict between advanced technology and what it means to be human is derivative of the Matrix, then so is E. M. Forster's "The Machine Stops" (machine takes over the world unbeknownst to humans, keeps humans in little individual rooms where it provides everything they need virtually, machine is battled by last few remaining free humans in the deserted wastes of Earth). Except that Forster's story was published in 1928.

The most significant difference between the Matrix and the Personifid Project is that the technology in Personifid is not self-controlling and self-motivated - it is under the control of humans who have very human motives, which presents us with a completely different set of moral/intellectual issues than stories containing self-aware/self-determining technology. And Bartlett is nice enough not to present us with pat answers to those issues, trusting us to do our own thinking and come to our own conclusions.

Another nice thing is that, unlike much fiction containing overt spiritual material, nobody in Personifid goes from sinner to saint in one easy step, and we never all have to choke on the sugar coating. The emotional and spiritual struggles are believable, and Aphra doesn't undergo tremendous leaps of personality development that no real person could match, so we can identify with her.

So, while the story does follow certain of the SF conventions, that's because... it's SF. What really matters, in this story and every other, is how the conventions are fleshed out with the author's own beliefs and characters. This, The Personifid Project does very well.
 
Totoally Amazing  Feb 6, 2006
I am about half way through this book, and I cannot believe how great it is. Lately all I can think about is reading, and I promise that has never happened before.
