I was intrigued by the description of this book –
“Jim, the only human still alive in the universe, lives his life on a small escape pod orbiting a black hole, where he survives by replicating himself and eating his clones. Before eating one of his duplicates, he entertains his meal by recounting the story of how he got here and how he managed to survive.”
That was all I needed to read before agreeing to give this book a review – which was sent to me for free by the author for an honest review. Honestly, I enjoyed the book – even when it was grossing me out.
This book has some twisted themes, so it’s not for the faint-of-heart. However, the disturbing things aren’t throughout the entire book so you can rest assured that you won’t spend the entire time on the verge of nausea.
I like that we get taken on a storied journey about how Jim ends up being the only human still alive. It gives the story its bones. It makes it an interesting read that keeps you flipping from page-to-page, not wanting to put the book down.
I definitely recommend The Last Feast to anyone that likes science fiction tales.
