Stronger, Faster, and More Beautiful by Arwen Elys Dayton

Publication Date: December 4th, 2018

Goodreads Summary
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.

Set in our world, spanning the near to distant futures, Stronger, Faster, and More Beautiful is a novel made up of six interconnected stories that ask how far we will go to remake ourselves into the perfect human specimens, and how hard that will push the definition of “human.”

This extraordinary work explores the amazing possibilities of genetic manipulation and life extension, as well as the ethical quandaries that will arise with these advances. The results range from the heavenly to the monstrous. Deeply thoughtful, poignant, horrifying, and action-packed, Arwen Elys Dayton’s Stronger, Faster, and More Beautiful is groundbreaking in both form and substance.


I don’t typically read a lot of dystopian novels anymore, but this one sounds so chilling that I’m intrigued. If we had the choice to change ourselves, would we? It’s such a loaded question and one where if we had the chance, what would the ramifications be. Would we like our new selves, would we lose a sense of ourselves as we create the new one. This book has so much potential and I’m really excited to see how this story is executed.

What’s your most anticipated book?
