Bob Johansson has just sold his software company and is looking forward to a life of leisure. There are places to go, books to read, and movies to watch. So it's a little unfair when he gets himself killed crossing the street. Bob wakes up a century later to find that corpsicles have been declared to be without rights, and he is now the property of the state. He has been uploaded into computer hardware and is slated to be the controlling AI in an interstellar probe looking for habitable planets.

I tried to like this, but feel it never really got going. I kept going with it thinking there was going to be some story but, No.

I’m going through the David Sedaris audio books backwards. There are many humorous stories of David or his bonkers family and people he meets through life. Each Audible ‘CD’ has one or two diamond stories that has me laughing later in the day or next day.
can’t wait to start the next/previous.
