I really enjoyed this book. I've always wondered if you can freeze people and thaw them out to live again. I also like sci-fi books. This one though shows that there are dictators no matter what year it is and also a little white supremacists. I do think the author should have never told us what year they left or at least but it further ahead. Just 15 years away to me isn't very realistic.

But over all a good read and I'm looking forward to the next one. ( )

If I sum this book up in two words it would be "Space Oddity"

The first three quarters of this book is just so boring. It took me forever to finish. I even had to renew it at the end so I could finish it.

The story itself is also rather peculiar too. I was at a loss as to how this was all going to come together in the end. I want to say It read kind of youngish for me but then there are some situations that were not for young people at all. There is a near rape that gets handled rather oddly, plus numerous mentions of sex.

But, in the end it did come together and even made sense, in a odd, I'm out in deep space for too long, kind of way. So, I bumped my 2.5 rating up to 3 stars. ( )

Man, this one was on track to be pretty darned awesome. Then it wasn't. It took a wrong turn along the way and turned into a morality tale/open-ended story. It just got weak. Hmph. ( )

One of the best YA books I've read in a long time. I can't remember ever reading anything like it - a science fiction, dystopian, murder-mystery romance. ( )
