One of the last 5 books I read was called Zendegi by Greg Egan. It is currently free at Barnes and Noble and one penny at Amazon. Greg is an excellent writer and I thoroughly enjoyed this book. I liked how he started in a place, as an American I know nothing about, modern Iran, and brought it to life, and then was able to take current controversial research and turn it into a nice storyline for the rest of the book. Kudos to Greg for a great story. At this price pick it up for yourself and enjoy.
