The discovery of the fountain of youth kick-starts this excellent fantasy thriller from Farnsworth… Each man is obsessed with living forever, yet exhausted from the lies and hiding they’ve done for centuries and bored by life’s pleasures. “To live forever, you have to have something to live for,” one of them thinks. The realistic approach is one of this inventive novel’s major strengths.
This is a pretty huge deal for a book nerd like me. And this was only the third or fourth best thing to happen in the past few days. So, yeah. Having a pretty good week, thanks for asking.
