What would you do if you were told you were going to die? What if you were told you could live forever, but in a computer? What would happen if that computer decided it wanted more of an existence? These are some of the ideas presented in Singular, the Debut novel of David F. Porteous.

Mr. Porteous manages to blend science ficiton with a dose of sharp humor and pokes at some of the other areas of the science fiction world. The book is a nice blend of both the real and the surreal world. Set in the year 2045, we get to see Patrick Clark, a not so great man, as he learns that he has testicular cancer.

The book enters the surreal aspect when it ventures into the world of the computer. Sometimes it seemed a little hard to understand, but by the end of the story, it all made complete sense.

If you like Science Fiction, and are a fan of the Terminator and Wargames type movies, then I think you should pick this up. Be warned, that there is some stronger language, so I’d suggest for older teens or adults. A good story and I definitely look forward to Mr. Porteous’ next book.
