Very entertaining read easy and fast full of action A nice view of the future interesting and well done What if all these things did happen in the near future Jim Frost is telling his life story a bit crisscross and I understand that that keeps the reader's mind puzzling and engaged but it may not be really necessary to create a compelling entertaining story I think the characters could use a bit depth and dilemmas but on the other hand why not enjoy this ride and see this action movie with a sustainability theme with your mind's eye and ponder the philosophical uestions later when you sit by the fire with a glass of wine Do no resuscitate What's worth to last after our mortal bodies are gone Well done and impressive for a debut novel Grab this book and discuss it with friends family and othersThank you Nicholas I found you by coincidence and I'll keep an eye on your work

Jim Frost thinks that when you’re dead you’re dead Gone Finished Kaput But on the eve of his seventy third birthday his daughter suggests he have his brain downloaded to a microchip for safekeeping and Jim is forced to consider what it really means to die and what it might mean to live forever Recipient of the 2015 Green Book Festival honorable mention. Jim Lorenzo Frost's daughter is pressuring him to have his mind downloaded onto a chip something that can be done in the mid twenty first century world of the book No one knows what to do with the download but she's hopeful that will change some time in the future Seventy something Jim isn't enthusiastic about leaving anything of himself after he is done kaput This whole thing does inspire him to write his story howeverHis story as he tells it makes it clear that something big and dire has happened something environmental It's also clear that he had a part in bringing the world back from it But how that happened is a bit of a mystery He's not a scientist He's not some kind of Bruce Willis character saving the day He's kind of a slacker who falls into a messenger job after college being sent here and there to pick up red coolers an activity for which he receives a disturbing amount of moneyWhat Makes Do Not Resuscitate So Good First this isn't a book with an obvious unsubtle environmental lesson The environmental aspects involve the setting and the book's world in which the main character functions Second voice Jim has a great one Third there is a story here one about an everyman kind of guy who stumbles into the right place at the right time There's a little mystery here about what is exactly going on and that provides some nice narrative driveExcerpt originally appeared at Original Content

Do Not ResuscitateIn fiction and semi finalist in the 2015 Kindle Book Awards Do Not Resuscitate is the firsthand account of Jim Frost an aging misanthropist who witnessed the rise and fall of the United States as a world power the digitalization of the planet the advent of the water wars and the near collapse of the global economy Yet he remains impervious to it all Conce. This book is an engaging journey through the mind and memory of Jim Frost a man whose uirky and mysterious path to financial success is slowly revealed to the reader through a series of flashbacks His modern day takes place in an environmentally blighted near future I appreciated how close and highly plausible the dystopia of Frost's present day is The nature of the environmental changes that led to the bleak setting are not at all far fetched drought leading to famine leading to economic collapse etc In fact we may even get there sooner Two things stand out in the author's response to that dystopia1  Everyday life in such a time will still enjoy all the mundane trappings of our current lives nagging children coming to terms with one's mortality We can normalize anything and the underpinnings of the human condition will remain relatively untouched 2 Not to reveal too much of the ending Thanks to human ingenuity and scientific progress there is hope We will ultimately find our way out or around whatever comes to pass The journey through this book deals with concepts of faith and skepticism without heavy handedness If you enjoy black comedy and a clever whimsical story line you will enjoy this book I know I did
