Summary

Le premier être humain immortel est déjà né. Découvrez le nouveau roman de J.R. Dos Santos.

L'un des plus grands scientifiques chinois vient d'annoncer la naissance de deux bébés génétiquement modifiés, il disparaît juste après sa conférence. La presse internationale commence à poser des questions, les services secrets tentent de trouver des réponses, un Américain contacte Tomás Noronha à Lisbonne. Celui qui se présente comme un scientifique travaillant pour la DARPA, l'agence de recherche avancée de la Défense américaine, est à la recherche du savant disparu. Tomás découvre alors les véritables enjeux du projet chinois...

Pour le grand retour de Tomás Noronha, J.R. dos Santos s'attaque au sujet le plus effrayant et le plus fondamental pour l'homme aujourd'hui : l'intelligence artificielle. L'humanité touche-t-elle à sa fin ou fait-elle face à un nouveau départ ?

Painfully boring

I normally liked dos Santos novels, but this one is exceedingly tedious. It feels that the author wrote this by paraphrasing four sources: Wikipedia, New Scientist magazine, a few embarrassingly bad American TV shows and, of course, TV network talking-heads. So far as story goes, it is no better than a fifth-grader's attempt of a comic book script - well, I was not being fair: probably more like an eighth-grader’s attempt of a short sci-fi story. I get it that there is the covid pandemic going on, and he had to sit home with computer the only interface with the outside world. But does it have to be sooooo boring? Could he not have thought up at least one slightly more complex characters to populate his pages? Did he really need to throw in that many cliches? A total lack of inspiration seems to be the problem with this book.
