About this deal
Their DNA and a lot of other vital information is taken at great expense and they are effectively cloned.
Hace un mes que no sube una copia de seguridad de sus recuerdos, por lo tanto, su clon no tiene ni idea de lo cerca que ha estado de morir ni de su encuentro con los habitantes del planeta. Mickey7, the seventh iteration of Mickey, joined a human expedition sent to colonize Niflheim, a really cold planet, because he was looking to escape a gambling debt. There were insectile things half the size of a man that shot jets of concentrated sulfuric acid from glands in their heads. This was an entertaining sci fi novel that plays with the idea that employers so often treat their employees as disposable.Mickey is a such fun and likeable protagonist with an engaging voice, and a personality that will make you laugh and want to facepalm in. I thoroughly enjoyed the history of previous colony expeditions and the landscape of those planets humanity was seeking to colonize. A wildly entertaining mix of action and big ideas peppered with humor and a bizarre love story, this novel is proof that, when done right, science fiction can be one of the most entertaining genres out there. El resto son flashbacks de las reencarnaciones anteriores de Mickey y cómo les ha ido a otras colonias espaciales en diferentes mundos.
There’s a bulge where there shouldn’t be one, pressing against the fabric just at the point where my glove meets the sleeve of my outer thermal. Mickey Barnes chose life as an expendable because, frankly, it was the best way to get on a colony ship away from Earth. We also learn about failed expeditions, some of the other colonised worlds and about Alan Manikova, an expendable who took over his planet with his multiples. I won’t end the review giving away spoilers, but there was so much I enjoyed – including the life forms named The Creepers that have started picking off the security goons out in the snow. You just introduce your cool concept and you don’t have to prove that it can result in a good movie because the studio doesn’t even get to the second act.
Además, está el nombre de la nave, Drakkar, una palabra islandesa que tiene algunas connotaciones interesantes relacionadas con la sed de conocimiento, éxito o incluso poder sobre el Universo, el planeta o incluso entre las personas en sí.
There are a lot of thought provoking questions throughout that really add to the overall enjoyment, without making your brain hurt too much.Premise: Set in the future on a mining colony, an “expendable” named Mickey 7 – someone built to die over and over again on dangerous missions, their mind re-uploaded to their cloned successor – is erroneously assumed dead, and comes home to find out they’ve already created his replacement, Mickey 8.
His matter-of-factness was endearing to me, where a more emotionally fraught close third-person narration wouldn't have given me the impetus to keep reading. Somewhere around the middle of the book I started to wonder about uneven pacing and lack of meaningful plot progression. It’s an odd book in that it’s not super heavy on action, and it doesn’t feel like a whole lot happens, but I enjoyed it. They all think duplicates of a person are an absolute abomination, so both Mickeys are in a conundrum.Despite this, every position on the expedition this story focuses on was applied for by hundreds of people, except one – the expendable. It would take a hell of an effort and a great deal of personal risk to get you back out—and I can’t justify that kind of risk for an Expendable, you know? They’re not leaving our ‘old’ Earth (nobody’s heard from them for over 600 years anyway) – the world Mickey and the colonisers are travelling from is a third generation colony world, Midgard which is a pretty pleasant place. He has no useful skills, so he signs on as an Expendable on a colony ship going to Niflheim — in Norse mythology the cold, dark, misty world of the dead, ruled by the goddess Hel.
