    1. Want to read a really smart sci-fi book on AI, long-term human evolution, self-identity etc.? Here you go (sifter/~simon/AfterLife/)!You'll need to read it thoroughly to understand all the plot twists (incl. the ending :P). After fully finding out what's going on, you'll have a spontaneous altruistic desire to give the author his fully deserved one dollar on !


    2. Fantastically relevant perspective on what makes humans human and what makes us The engaging writing style kept the pace mostly fast with necessary slow points when the author works in philosophical discussions. Highly recommend.



    3. This is a story about a man named Alexander who is a PhD and decides to allow a new experiment in technology be implemented on his own brain, resulting in a meandering story of robots and artificial intelligence and dreams of robots and what happens when these machines take over the world. I read through this fairly quickly without taking time to think and ponder through the possibilities and implications that Funk brings up. It was an intriguing and mildly engaging story simply for the ideas an [...]


    4. This wasuh, interesting to say the least.It felt like I was reading a simplified cyberpunk Kafkaesque work. Some parts of this book are brilliantly written and address issues I never thought I would find addressed in novellas like this, the other parts struck me as just sort of bland and very unnecessary.I had absolutely no idea what I was reading until about halfway through the book, and the ending is pretty interesting, so in so far as plot goes, I'd say it's definitely a mind-twister.All in a [...]


    5. After Life was a fairly quick read but was certainly a trip. The story was as convoluting as it could get and at times it was difficult to keep track of the story. However, the visions the protagonist sees in his dreams/reality(?) were vividly described by Funke. They were surreal. Every minute and trivial detail was described in detail which I loved.There was one chapter which I specifically loved where the author talks about reality. What is real and what is not. How do you describe reality? I [...]


    6. Take a slice of Isaac Asimov, add a dash of Kafka, 5 tbsps of neo-cyberpunk, and add a whole heap of WTF, then heat until golden brown. This is a bizarre novella, but a good one. The large majority of it is trying to figure out what is going on, but the book leads you along without ever letting you get completely lost. My only gripe is that Simon Funk's mind tends to fall into the gutter every now and then, but if you can look past that, its a great read.


    7. The writing style is odd, full of dreams and strange scenarios, not following a visible thread until most of the way through the book. It really works for this story. I enjoy reading books that try to give a glimpse of a possible future, and this one uses (what I think are) plausible mechanisms and a reasonable storyline for future technology. A very enjoyable book that seems like it will hold up as a futuristic sci-fi story for a long time.


    8. I really wanted to like this book, but I just found it too hard to follow. I guess that's intended to simulate the experience of the main character, but I found it very confusing. Each chapter is its own snippet of an experience, and the reader must deduce nearly everything about what is happening and why.


    9. A decent sf novella about artificial intelligence, embodiment and what comes after the human. The speculative parts are better than the story, which often creaks under the desire to create an unstable but fascinating narrator.


    10. Read the free online copy, then immediately ordered a hard copy from Lulu. Great little novella about post-human existence, but embued with a wonderful sense of humour throughout. Some rather well-written ideas about the architecture of the human mind as well.



    11. Very interesting novella. It reminds me a bit of Manna, but set further along in the future. It can get raunchy in parts, but overall a fun read.
