    1. I started reading Forever Young as individual parts of the series. By the time I got to Part 3, the book had come out in its entirety and I purchased it right away. Ms. Nougat certainly had me hooked and I was so glad to find out what happened to everyone! The book begins two hundred years in the future as a beautiful woman hears the alarm go off on her watch. But this is no ordinary watch, it's her Life Watch and it just informed her that at 122 years old, she is programmed to die that night. S [...]

    2. There's no point in my reviewing my own book, it's up to the readers and I hope some will be moved enough to write down what they think!I just wanted to point out that, while this book is meant as entertainment, it is also, like most climate fiction novels, intended as a wake-up call: if we don't do something now to reverse the trends that drive our civilization - industrialization, the population explosion with attendant pollution and global warming - we are headed for disaster.

Is it already too late? What will the world be like for our grandchildren? Our hearts are filled with dread that our species, along with so many others, will become extinct. In those long nights we sometimes turn to novels for comfort or, at the lea [...]

    5. Some time ago I read Nougat’s short story compilation Death on Facebook, Short Stories for the Digital Age and was impressed with the range of stories and the skill with which they were presented. One that caught my imagination was I will not leave you behind, the futuristic story of a 122 year old woman who is part of an elite program that keeps you young until you die. In FOREVER YOUNG Nougat has taken that short story and woven its premise into a four-part series of short novels I enjoyed r [...]
