If you had the chance, would you want to live forever? In Suicide Club by Rachel Heng, people are living longer lives than ever before. Some people, like the main character, Lea, may have the opportunity to live forever.
Of course, they have to maintain a healthy, low-risk lifestyle and get replacements for their body parts on a regular basis. No hiking, no ice cream, no rock and roll. It sounds boring as hell. Is life without decent music and ice cream even worth living?
After seeing her long-lost father, Lea is wondering the same thing. She gets put on a watch list after displaying some odd behavior. She’s on probation at work and at home. There’s more to her story that comes to light after she and her father start to discuss the past.
The people observing her require her to go to a therapy group, where she meets a new friend, Anja. Her new friend also happens to be in an illegal club called the Suicide Club. Apparently, not everyone wants to live for eternity.
It’s interesting to see Lea try to decide if she’s going to keep living a life without hardly any joy or join the Suicide Club.
I would have finished reading this book sooner, except that I misplaced my tablet for a few days.
This book is worth reading. I think it would make a great series on Netflix. I would give it 4.5 stars out of 5.
