Set 20 years into the future, the number one "bio-repo man" repossesses artificial body organs when their owners fall behind on credit payments.

HARPERCOLL

In a brave new world, you'll never have to die . . . as long as you keep up with the payments.

Thanks to the technological miracle of artiforgs, now you can live virtually forever. Nearly indestructible artificial organs, these wonders of metal and plastic are far more reliable and efficient than the cancer-prone lungs and fallible kidneys you were born with?and the Credit Union will be delighted to work out an equitable payment plan. But, of course, if you fall delinquent, one of their dedicated professionals will be dispatched to track you down and take their product back.

This is the story of the making?and unmaking?of one of the best Repo Men in the extraction business, who finds his soul when he loses his heart . . . and then he has to run.

Very Good book. I haven't seen the movie. I found it to be very easy reading on how the authors style of writing but I found it was hard to keep track of the main characters 5 wives. (Go figure) But I do highly recomend this book to anyone who has a dark sense of humor.
