Book Review | Ageless by Paul Inman

Sample received. All opinions are my own.

I don’t know about you, but my Summer-time is filled with books. Whether it’s lounging by the pool, in the car on the way to vacation, or just relaxing in the air conditioning, you can bet I probably have a book in my hand. My latest read was a book called Ageless by author Paul Inman.

ageless

Ageless tells the story of a girl names Alessandra Satori, who was the test subject of Nazi eugenics experimentation during World War 2. The interesting thing about Alessandra (also known as Aless) is that she has a genetic anomaly that makes her “ageless,” hence the title of the book. The memories of her time as a test subject haunt her, but something else she can never seem to escape is CIA agent Mark Richards. Ever since case number 110102 -involving the girl who appears to never age- landed on Richard’s desk, Alessandra is all he could think about. His life obsession turns into finding and capturing her. As Aless both figuratively and literally runs and hides from her past, she is left to ponder the question, is eternal life a gift or a curse?

When I first picked up this book, I thought it sounded thrilling. After reading the first few chapters I was not disappointed, and it seemed like I couldn’t read the pages fast enough (yes I did stay up until 2:00 A.M. one morning to finish it). One thing that I would critique about the book is the way the chapters are set up. The chapters bounce backward and forward on the timeline of the story, which can make things hard to keep up with at times. With that being said, this book is totally worth the temporary confusion, especially because you get the hang of the time hopping as you progress through the book. Although I personally enjoyed this book, I would not recommend it to people who are squeamish. There are a couple of unnerving Nazi lab experiment parts that might make your toes curl.

All in all, I do recommend this book to anyone looking for a good page turner. The constant mystery behind Alessandra’s past and future is enough to make just about anybody love this sci-fi, action, and thriller mash-up. Comment below what your thoughts are on this book, and if you think it’s something you would be interested in reading too!

    This sounds like a very interesting book. Is never aging a plu or a negative?

    Interesting sounding book. I’ll have to add to my library list since it’s been too long since I read a non kid book.

    I like reading books that other people can’t put down. Love page turners.

    Just finished the Ageless by author Paul Inman. I loved the format. The cover and inline cover page of a timeline really peaked my interest. A good clean book , no severe language, or nudity. yes the Nazi scientist could be considered a little much, but to set the stage I think it had to work this way. Yes, a little squeamish but it wouldn’t work without some of these details. I think any sci-fi teen would like it. Not too gruesome, just enough.I could feel the intelligence of the writer. I could tell he did his homework in getting his details lined up. Good job! Definitely a page turner.
