Conclusion By Peter Robertson

Colin Tugdale has only one year left to live. He has no complaints. He took the government money, and he lived for twenty years in perfect health, never growing one day older, never getting sick. But his time is almost over, and his beloved wife, Ruby, is already gone. Colin needs something to occupy himself. He meets a woman who should be dead. He sees a man who is dead. Is it possible that his government has been lying to him? Colin’s last year might prove to be his most exciting. Set in a world gently different from ours, this thriller explores the nature of aging in society, within the context of a thriller that places two ordinary people in a race against time that culminates in a remote boundary land.

My Thoughts...
This book reminded me of a movie  that I have watched.
After the experiment he only had 20 years to live and never aged in that 20 years.
As I read it I just keep thinking I have read or seen this movie before.
I gave the book 3 stars based on the fact that I have read or see n it before.
The Mary Reader received this book from the publisher for review. A favorable review was not required and all views expressed are our own.
