"The Definition of Luck:
The Post-Modern Prometheus"
by Steven Paul Leiva

Khadambi Kinyanjui is a very tall Kenyan who was raised in London. Joe Smith is a much shorter red-headed orphan boy who grew up in the California desert, raised by his aunt. When the two scientists meet at University, they appear to be exact opposites. But the two of them find more in common between them than most people would think possible. Soon the two become the best of friends, closer even than brothers. (No, there is nothing romantic or sexual between them, this is not that kind of story.) 

This is the story of their friendship. One that spans a lifetime and beyond. It is the story of what they will do for each other when a life-changing tragedy strikes, and how that tragedy may wind up changing the course of their lives, as well as potentially the lives of a great number of other people. This is also a story about humanity, and what it means to be human. One big question explored by these two characters is... can one be considered human if they can no longer live in the physical world?

I love reading Mr. Leiva's books a great deal. His stories always leave me highly entertained, but more than that, they make me really think about the story and the characters. His stories are never ones that I read and then soon forget about as I begin reading another book. No, his stories really make me think about the meaning behind the story. And they stick with me long after having read them. (And for someone who reads a lot of books, that means something to me.)

I would highly recommend this book. It is a very complex tale, but one that I think anyone would enjoy, especially if you like books that will really make you think.
