There is nothing "dated" about this classic sci-fi despite it being written decades ago. Pohl had so much vision that what must have originally sounded impossible now seems perhaps just "a little" in the future. A very, very entertaining book and very good science fiction from a master.

Man Plus broke ground that was subsequently covered back up by Hollywood cyborg action movies (like Robocop). The focus is on how a human male feels about being cyborged, how it affects his relationships. Unfortunately the sexism of the time when this was written came through strongly enough to be somewhat irritating to this female reader. Nevertheless, well worth the time listening; clearly a pioneering work of sf. With a surprise ending!

Man Plus is a great book. loved it when I read it years ago (twice). Audiobook is fabulous - loved it again.
Any additional comments?
A character, who it would be very easy to dislike, has horrible things done to him by an even more horrible group of characters. I can’t say that listening to this book was an entirely pleasurable experience but, having done so, I can’t stop thinking about it. Unpleasant and disturbing, yes. But in a good way, I think.
