Review: Resurrect

My apologies to those of you who have already read this review.  I had some inadvertent posting occur just prior to and after my surgery.  All previous comments remain.

To keep his burning F-18 from crashing into a heavily populated neighborhood, Navy Commander Josh Logan stays with the fighter until the very last moment . . . and ejects too late.  Critically injured, he is offered a choice.  He can die, or he can live, take on an entirely new identity, . . . and save mankind from a global disaster almost beyond imagining.  Josh chooses to live.  But, who has given him this second life?  Is it all just a delusion?  And, what can one man possibly do to save the world?

At first glance, you might think that David E. Stevens' Resurrect (Monarch Books, 2012) is a high octane action / thriller with tons of tech and suspense.  And, you would be half right.  Resurrect has got all the thrills you can handle.  But, it is also an unexpectedly philosophical book, exploring the nature of human knowledge and the limits of human understanding.  How much do we really know?  Is the amount of knowledge we possess a function of the amount of knowledge we can handle?  Fascinating questions!  If you like your action smart and thought-provoking, Resurrect is for you.

I could use a good action read.

Debbie said...

I'll have to put this on my wish list. It's the combination of action and philosophy that keeps me going back to Science Fiction. This might be something else, but certainly fits the bill.

I'd love to read something other than a textbook for once but I don't have the time. :(

A global disaster almost beyond imagining? You mean, he prevents Hostess from going bankrupt?
