Jane feels betrayed following her husband Jim's death when it turns out he's secretly paid a cryogenics company to remove and store his frozen head after death in order to revive him in the future. There's some interesting sci-fi exploration of what the future holds for the frozen headed, and of why a person might want to do this (atheism seems a necessary component). Then there's the completely inadequate attempt to give Jim and Jane a background of passionate love for one another as the book quits all that prior stuff. Interesting premise drowned under the same waves that swamp hundreds and thousands of other contemporary lit reflections on modern relationships that fail to stand out.… (lisätietoja)

I thoroughly enjoyed this book. and despite its length it kept my interest the whole way through. I initially wanted to read it as I love post apocalyptic stuff as a whole, but also that this was a different premise than the usual ones. there a lot of characters and it did take a little while to get them straight in my head, but with a book this size you can cope with that. the different choices narrating w were unusual and it kept up a fairly good pace, if one bit was less interesting it wasn't too long before something new happened.

overall I don't think I've read a book quite like it before and that's always a good thing in my mind.
