Suicide Club (2018)

This book is confusing and unrelatable, there’s a lot of confusing moments due to the technical terms used, that I failed to remember. Despite that, I continued on because of it’s an interesting concept that got me thinking and I would love to know your thoughts.

This is what the book is about (Extracted from Goodreads):
Lea Kirino is a “Lifer,” which means that a roll of the genetic dice has given her the potential to live forever—if she does everything right. And Lea is an overachiever. She’s a successful trader on the New York exchange—where instead of stocks, human organs are now bought and sold—she has a beautiful apartment, and a fiancé who rivals her in genetic perfection. And with the right balance of HealthTech™, rigorous juicing, and low-impact exercise, she might never die.

But Lea’s perfect life is turned upside down when she spots her estranged father on a crowded sidewalk. His return marks the beginning of her downfall as she is drawn into his mysterious world of the Suicide Club, a network of powerful individuals and rebels who reject society’s pursuit of immortality, and instead chose to live—and die—on their own terms. In this future world, death is not only taboo; it’s also highly illegal. Soon Lea is forced to choose between a sanitized immortal existence and a short, bittersweet time with a man she has never really known, but who is the only family she has left in the world.

Would you be part of those who pursuit immortality or would you do it on your own terms? Why?

My answer:
Personally, it heavily depends on the people I love. If it allows my love ones to be alive and healthy, I don’t mind immortality. If due to a certain issue and they’re gone, I would do it on my terms then.
