"An alternately charming and horrifying exploration of what it means to be human and how far we'll go in pursuit of personal and societal 'perfection.' Dayton's newest is imagination at its best and most terrifying. I devoured this book." --Kiersten White, New York Times bestselling author of And I Darken
For fans of television shows Black Mirror and Westworld, this compelling, mind-bending novel is a twisted look into the future, exploring how far we will go to remake ourselves into the perfect human specimen and what it means to be human at all.
The future is curious.
Today our bodies define us. We color our hair; tattoo our skin; pierce our ears, brows, noses. We lift weights, run miles, break records. We are flesh and blood and bone.
Tomorrow has different rules. The future is no longer about who we are--it's about who we want to be. If you can dream it, you can be it. Science will make us smarter, healthier, flawless in every way. Our future is boundless.
This is a story that begins tomorrow. It's a story about us. It's a story about who comes after us. And it's a story about perfection. Because perfection has a way of getting ugly.
"A deep and suddenly necessary exploration of the beautiful and terrible futures we face. Every story leaves you desperate for more. Somehow, the further from today Dayton travels, the more real it becomes." --Hank Green, author of An Absolutely Remarkable Thing
"Stronger, Faster, and More Beautiful is a remarkable book, visionary and very hard to put down. The characters live in compelling, personal stories that have relevance to the future of the human race itself." -- Kevin J. Anderson, New York Times bestselling author of The Dark Between the Stars
"A work of unforgettable vision and imagination. This book is everything I love about science fiction." --Jay Kristoff, New York Times bestselling coauthor of the Illuminae Files
"Haunting, challenging and provocative--this is an extraordinary book. I can't stop thinking about it." --Amie Kaufman, New York Times bestselling coauthor of the Illuminae Files
"Imaginative and incisive, this asks readers to ponder what makes us human and if we'll know when we've crossed the line, becoming something else."--Kirkus Reviews, Starred review
