When it comes to science-fiction authors you have never heard of, there are none more talented than Robert Sheckley. Aside from "Immortality Inc.", (which is amazing), his novel "Dimension of Miracles" & as well as a handful of short-stories adapted into radio dramas for the 1950's program "X-Minus One" have earned him the honor of owning the spot in my heart as my favorite obscure writer.
"Immortality Inc." plays with your mind only the way that Sheckley can. The story itself blends ideas from subjects such as time travel, the afterlife, immorality, reincarnation, and zombie folklore into ONE book that reads like a "I-can't-put-it-down" page-turner. I also found it interesting that a book which was written over 50 years ago had its protagonist be a self-proclaimed atheist. Rare for that time period in fiction.
Definitely worth the credit. You won't be sorry.

If you could sum up Immortality, Inc. in three words, what would they be?
Dystopian, futuristic, anti-religious
What other book might you compare Immortality, Inc. to and why?
We by Zamyatin, 1984 by Orwell or Brave New World by Huxley where gloomy and frightening alternative futures come to life.
What does Bronson Pinchot bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?
That's the power of his voice, the way he can easily vary his pitch, his voice quality...all sounded perfect to me.
