9780356502144: Love Minus Eighty

A NOVEL OF LOVE AND DEATH, IN NO PARTICULAR ORDER

The words were gentle strokes, drawing her awake.

"Hello. Hello there."

She felt the light on her eyelids, and knew that if she opened her eyes they would sting, and she would have to shade them with her palm and let the light bleed through a crack.

"Feel like talking?" A man's soft voice.

And then her mind cleared enough to wonder: who was this man at her bedside?

She tried to sigh, but no breath came. Her eyes flew open in alarm.

The Minus Eighty . . .

Where millionaires browse the catalogue of icy women, judging on beauty ratings and revival costs.

Where a freezer's gentle hum plays the background symphony for the world's most expensive first dates.

Where death is only the beginning.

Love Minus Eighty is a disquieting vision of our romantic future, as hopeful as it is horrifying, by a Hugo Award-winning author.

Recensione:

A clever premise, brilliantly executed . . . chilling and touching at the same time ( Charles Yu, author of How to Live Safely in a Science Fictional Universe)

McIntosh paints an intriguing picture of a society ruled by celebrity culture ( DAILY MAIL)

Not only a complex, affecting and surprising love story, but a perceptive critique of a society mired in addictive technology and celebrity status ( GUARDIAN)

Speculative fiction at its most personal and powerful . . . Intriguing, quirky, perversely charming and definitely affecting ( KIRKUS REVIEWS)

McIntosh intertwines three futuristic stories about individuals looking for love . . . The author's high-tech New York City is both fascinating and plausible . . . McIntosh manages to show how technology can both divide and unite us while delivering a highly entertaining tale ( RT BOOK REVIEWS)

Disquieting, hopeful, yet horrifying ( DAILY EXAMINER (Australia))

Grimly plausible . . . this SF romance is a fine piece of work ( SFX)

Will McIntosh has created a highly plausible future . . . a good conceit with a great deal of potential ( SCIFI NOW)

McIntosh's gripping and sweetly moving tale is anything but a pile of romance clichés...a contender for awards' ( ARC)

Love Minus Eighty has award winner written all over it ( SF CROWSNEST)

Casts a clear and knowing eye on our current society, from the best viewpoint of all: the future ( Kim Stanley Robinson)

Immerses you in a world that is a surprisingly charming cross between Philip K. Dick and Jane Austen . . . manages to deliver a light, romantic story without ever sacrificing its dark vision of the future ( io9)

A beautiful, emotionally resonant tale . . . a dark, impactful novel ( TOR.COM)

This is a book with plenty to say about the way we live now and a witty and engaging manner of saying it. With its mixture of assured storytelling, clever ideas and a half-amused, half-tender portrayal of alienation in a fantastical big city milieu, Love Minus Eighty is an excellent example of character-driven, thematically rich SF, and even those usually frosty to the genre should get something out of it. ( BRITISH FANTASY SOCIETY)

The future world is delicately drawn, the characters all too human, and the science is easy. For both romantic and action story lovers everywhere ( Maxim J. Jakubowski, Lovereading.co.uk)
