Publisher's Summary

Roger Torraway watched in horror as the monster lurched, toppled over and died. Project Man Plus had gone suddenly and drastically wrong. The race to colonize Mars was too important, too costly, and America was already too committed, for plans to be scrapped. They would have to make a new Martian. And Roger Torraway was it, candidate for the endless surgery, operation after painful operation, that would enable him to survive on that faraway planet. Man Plus is a thrilling race against time - to land on Mars on schedule, to insure that Roger's system will withstand the stress that killed the previous candidate. And meanwhile, somewhere, somehow, there has been a breakdown in the computer network....With the edge-of-the-chair excitement and suspense, four-time Hugo Award winner Frederik Pohl tells the story of the remaking of man into Man Plus, creating in Roger an unforgettable character, grotesque in appearance but totally human in feeling - capable of yearning, depression, love, jealousy, terror.BONUS AUDIO: In an exclusive introduction, Hugo and Nebula Award-winning author Robert J. Sawyer explains why Man Plus is one of science fiction's all-time greatest novels.

More timely now than ever

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.

What does a cyborg feel?

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!

Unpleasant and Disturbing

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.
