    Description

    Brilliant 21st-century tycoon Justin Cord was brought from cryogenic storage into a 24th-century society where people own stock in one another, safeguarding each other's welfare only out of economic self-interest. This is anathema to the defiantly individualistic Cord, who leads the outer edges of the solar system to form a new government and revolt against the core world of Earth and Mars.

    Commentaires

    "The Kollin brothers keep the plot moving briskly despite the high proportion of talk to action. Their cerebral style will especially appeal to readers nostalgic for science fiction's early years." ( Publishers Weekly)
    "The Kollin brothers’ debut captivates with unforgettable characters and an ingenious vision of the economic future." ( Booklist)

    to be continued !!

    If you are anything like me and hate to wait an indefinite amount of time for a sequel just to find out how the story ends, avoid this book !!

    It's a great story but I would never have bought it, if there had been so much as a hint, that the book ends somewhere in the middle of it.

    Even if / when the sequel is published, I will refuse to buy it until I am absolutely sure that it concludes the story.

    So I cannot rate this with more than 3 stars, although the story itself certainly deserves at least 4.

    Great disappointment !

    The life of Justin Cord

    This is one of the most complex books I've listed to in the history of story telling. More moving parts than an engine and it was all worth it. Not once was I wondering, my god where is this going? I feel if I talk about anything in this book than it would spoil it for the people whom loved the Unincorporated Man. Justin Cord is still true to his nature but war has taken a little bit of his compassion away.

    It took me a little bit of time to get used to Eric G Dove as narrator as Todd McLaren had painted the people in this world with such a detailed brush in the unincorporated man. There should be a rule if your going to start a series and your excellent at it then you need to drive it all the way home.

    It was worth my time and energy it took to listen to this book. And really, isn't that what you REALLY want?

    I will be buying the next book.

    not as good as first book

    This sequel took a while to get interesting due to having to introduce all the characters and different story plots. once it got into the meat of the book and the ending it turned out to be very interesting and a great read just as the first one was.

    Excellent Sequel.

    The sequel to the Unincorporated Man picks up pretty much where the first book left off. Justin Cord, now the President of the Outer Alliance is leading in a time of war with what used to be called the Terran Confederation. Hector Sambianco has now decided as President that the real name should be United Human Federation...it has a better spin to his ear.

    Battles are raging across Sol system with fleets of OA ships and UHF ships smashing each other to bits over the issue of owning a piece of each other. Or is that the reason? Meanwhile, the electronic entities in hiding have emulated their human progenitors and are waging a similar war in the virtual world. As it turns out...their weapons are way nastier.

    I thoroughly enjoyed this follow up and someday I will have a chance to experience more books in this series. The ending of this one riled me up enough to get the next even if I hadn’t, well played. One thing I will mention is that switching narrators maybe hurting this product. There were several word slips an example of which was ‘chairman’ instead of ‘commodore’. That is the only kind of error that I found.

    Four out of five enjoyment points awarded to the Kollins.

    Too Touchy Feely but Not Bad

    Is this a husband and wife team or what; and if so, the husband better watch his back!

    Great military tactics, but it consistently loses that high-tech edge by wallowing in human emotions.

    Also some of the ideas about the role religion are a little disturbing.

    Terrible Narration

    I really like the story and read the books on paper as they were coming out. I listened to the first book here on audible and really enjoyed the story again having not remembered much of it at all. I am really thrown by the narrator in the second book almost to the point that I'm not sure I want to give it a chance. already with Justin and Omar there is almost no difference in inflection or intonation related to the characters and I'm really really worried about the female characters that this guy is going to try to narrate.

    Stop polluting science fiction with religion

    As soon as you two started spewing your religious garbage and turned the atheist people into bigots I remembered why I stopped reading your stuff. Can't believe that I forgot what you did and bought the audiobook after being so turned off when reading the hardcover. Now I have to figure out if I can let a story go unfinished or suck it up to finish and probably be so disappointed with people trying to evangelize sci-fi. I feel betrayed in a way. Violated.

    nice follow through

    unlike most, this volume is just as good as the first. An exceptional read or listen!

    Narrator ruined it for me.

    If you’re going to pick up narrating a series it might behoove you to listen to the first book and maintain the pronunciations and intonation style of the first narrator to help maintain flow. The dramatic change in style is painful to the point that I can’t even focus on the story.

    Good but not as good as the first

    although I enjoyed the continuation of the story from the first book, the war is just too big to cover in one book. There wasn't enough time spent with each of the major players.
