Description

Tech City: Society is obsessed with relentless progress and the possibility of eternal life. A woman and a man meet in waiting room, anticipating a procedure that will incorporate the latest science and technology into their minds and bodies, heightening their awareness and increasing their productivity. Years pass, their relationship deepens and fades, and they grow increasingly uncertain where the AI stops and where they begin. A romantic drama exploring the potentiality of transhumanism, Life Ever After is a rich listening experience that is at once naturalistic and poetic.

Playwright Carla Grauls was awarded a commission through the Audible Emerging Playwrights Fund, an initiative dedicated to developing innovative original plays driven by language and voice. As an Audible commissioned playwright, she received funding and creative support to develop Life Ever After.

Special thanks: Meroe Candy, story researcher; Dr. Gill Haddow based in Science, Technology and Innovation Studies, University of Edinburgh; Tom Douglas, Senior Research Fellow in Philosophy, University of Oxford.

Couldn't finish

"only from audible" works tend to be of a substantially lower quality than full novels, and this is a perfect case in point.
Despite it only being an hour and a half long, I only made it halfway through before I decided there was no reason to torture myself any longer.

This is meant to be a science fiction story that's a commentary on several aspects of modern culture, in an experimental, conversation-focused approach.

Or something.

It actually is an extremely awkward set of conversations between two people; a scuzzy, extremely insecure jerk, and an attractive but cruel woman that, for no clear reason, is attracted to the guy. The flow of the conversation is, I'm sure, meant to be poetic and momentous, but actually is stilted and unpleasant to listen to.

Black Mirror!!

This story can fit perfectly into Black Mirror.
Its a very sad and disturbing play; but i can see the transfer to this Netflix series.
Be careful what you wish for; you might get it

Erie and Oddly Addicting.

This Audible Original is along the lines of Black Mirror and Twilight Zone. It can make you wonder about the advantages and disadvantages of AI. Is it really good for us?

Raul Castillo, Nana Mensah, and Piper Goodeve performed admirably.

I'm in love

This was such a fantastic story, the conversations just built everything up so well. I hope Audible keeps this up.

Not my usual listen, but I want to be fair

As I stated in the heading, this work is not my typical listen. Because of that and coupled with my lack of interest (because it’s not an emotional escape title in action and adventure) I was challenged in rating it.

I want to be fair. I didn’t want to rate the title poorly because it’s not my cup of tea, so-to-speak.

So I’ve attempted to rate this title as I’d imagine someone who likes this genre. Yes, a bit of speculation on my part.

I will say, this title is very thought provoking. The production OUTSTANDING. The acting, AMONG THE BEST, both primary actors! They were truly in sync. And the texture of Nana’s and Raúl‘s voices, exquisite.

And the title ended on a sad note, for me, being an escapist listener.

Oh, and the writing, phenomenal!

Cheers!

Intriguing, surprising, haunting, and moving

I really loved this audible original. At first I wasn't sure what to think of the tone of the performances or what was going on. But I stuck with it, and a few minutes in I was hooked and listened all the way through. It portrays a futuristic world that is creepy and totally believable, and makes you consider - what is it that truly makes us human?

interesting and thought provoking

I love history, old things, and nature. like the male character. yet, I love sci-fi/fantasy, the idea of the AI helping decision making, and living way longer. like the female character. but then .. just so interesting I don't want to spoil the story. Raises so many questions and what are my answers.
great for a book club or discussions with friends.

Ignorance is bliss

I liked how the characters evolved after each procedure. Sadly, these upgrades drove them apart...both changing by 180 degrees. Still not on the same page. She lives aware and he lives in bliss that he traded in for his soul.
