Toorop, a hard-boiled leatherneck veteran, has been hired to escort a young woman from Russia to Canada. But Marie is no ordinary girl. A schizophrenic and a possible carrier of a new artificial virus, Marie is bearing a mutant embryo created by an American cult, which dreams of producing a genetically modified messiah that will end all human life as we know it. Now, Toorop will risk his life to save Marie, as her brain, linking to the neuromatrix, surpasses all limits to become the universe itself.

Combining metaphysics with cyberpunk post-humanism in the spirit of Philip K. Dick., Babylon Babies rides Nietzsche's prophecy: Man is something to be overcome.

    " Odd book. Sort of cyber-punky piece about a mercenary assigned to deliver a schizophrenic woman pregnant with genetically altered clones of a wacky cult leader, said clones ending up being the next step in human evolution that will probably lead to the annihilation of humanity as we know it. Oddly written, perhaps as a function of the translation, perhaps as a function of the author's loopy sensibility. Interesting but not fully engaging. Despite how that plot summary sounds, totally serious in tone. "

    " Du cyberpunk bien peu convainquant. On n'y croit jamais et on s'y ennuie. "

    " I could not get into this book. I don't know if it was lost in translation, or if it was just poorly constructed. I was disappointed because I wanted to read it, but I couldn't stick it out. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Tim | 11/20/2013

    " This was a good but confusing story that takes place in a high tech near future. There is alot of technical descriptions and some paragraghs that seems a little incoherent, but the overall story is good if a but convulted. "

    " So far this cyber-punk novel is going great. Can't wait to see the movie "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Dan | 8/5/2013

    " War-punk stretching from Central Asia to the mean streets of Canada. Gang battles, magic, and mystical postmodernism. Writing style is sketchy, and characterization is very light. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 TC | 5/30/2013

    " A bit of a kludgy translation, mostly visible in technical terms. Otherwise a whirlwind of metaphysics, genetics, science fiction, and social politics. Mildly reminiscent of early Gibson or Stephenson. "

    " I'll post a review later that will mostly reflect how different from and superior this book is to the movie Babylon A.D. "

    " The story is interesting but the authors writing style makes it hard to process and digest. "

    " I really really wanted to like this book. Alas, I think something was lost in translation (from French): the captivating part. I don't often abandon books - but after 150 pages - I couldn't finish this.

    I did, however, really enjoy the movie that was based on this book - Babylon A.D. "

    " Sentiment mitigé à la fin de ce livre, non pas sur l'histoire en elle-même mais sur certains passages où il faut s'accrocher sérieusement pour suivre les pensées de l'auteur. "
