Good book. a little slow at the beginning, But the ending was so great! love the plot changes! can't wait to read the next ones.

Also love the idea of humans finding there "fountain of youth," this book gives you an idea of what might happen if humans were able to live forever, and that would be kinda scary.

A great book about why life will strive on no matter what the problem is . Think back to Jurassic park people.

I loved this book. It is such a good, imaginative idea and yet you feel like you should have thought of the world's future that way before. It teaches us that there is a point to everything, even death, and sometimes a short life with love is better than a long life without.

I wonder if something of the sort will have to happen someday, enev without any type of Longevity. I mean, the world's population really is growing.

I hope it doesn't.

This book was a great read, it's a wonder why it isn't more popular. The plot is unexpected and intricate; I can not wait to read the next book, The Resistance.

A cool book looking at a futuristic world where living forever comes at a price, and for others servitude and fear.

This book was really great...the choice between preserving your own life or creating another-you can't have both-makes people think. What would you choose?

Imagine a world where kids aren't around to live. A world where they're actually being hunted down and turned into slaves. Now imagine society accepting such a world, because it also supplies them drugs that provide immortality and conquers all diseases. Would you take the drugs and live forever without any children? Or would you opt out and become a social outcast? A story about 2 teens who manage to break free and are on the run...
