I read a lot of science fiction and I consider this novel to be excellent. For me this novel was a page turner, in fact I devoured it. Steele is very adept with including human interest in the story, with technology in the background as it should be. Character development and plot are first rate, and I will have to disagree with some of the other reviewers again as I thought the ending was very much acceptable. This would make a great science fiction action movie with a bit of cerebral stimulation thrown in! This is good stuff. Steele has the main character, Alec, suspended via cryonics after a fatal accident, and he is re-animated at some point in the future, no more details here so I won't be a spoiler, but if you read it I think you will agree with me that this is a fascinating account of what may someday actually take place!

A strange story, but overall good.

This book is in first person narrative, which I did not care for, as it cluttered the story with unnecessary trivia. I felt the story was slow and pointless.
