Love Minus Eighty Summary Ù 8 The words were gentle strokes drawing her awakeHello Hello thereShe 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 t. See reviews at have a confession to make I m a sucker for love stories But not just any kind of love story would do oh no because I like my romance the same way I like my Fantasy gritty transcendent in your face plus it helps if it s just a bit bizarre Love Minus Eighty is definitely all this and as if you couldn t already tell from its exuisite tagline A novel of love and death in no particular order Decades from now dwindling resources have caused cities like New York City to practically fold in and build upon itself creating a social stratification system that s even segregated than what we know today No doubt the book paints a pretty bleak view of the future but it s especially bad if you re one of the hundreds of dead women cryogenically frozen in dating farms awaiting your lucky day when some rich man will like you enough to pay millions for your revivification before whisking you home to be his wifeAnd seriously to think some of my friends complain about internet dating Online dating sites have got nothing on the nightmare that are these dating farms which charge male suitors thousands of dollars by the minute to date the dead women whose consciousnesses are awakened for the session before the plug is pulled again and they go back to their state of non existing Will McIntosh expanded upon this idea from his award winning short story Bridesicle because that s what society in this world called the frozen women Horrible right for this novel which follows a group of characters whose lives are all interconnected because of these dating farms What a disturbing and yet fascinating basis for a story and it s all set before a futuristic backdrop which seems so outlandish but feels familiar enough to make you feel uncomfortable at the same time It s a world of digital information and social media on steroids where attention seekers can be trailed by thousands of literal followers their floating user screens going wherever that individual goes People wear systems on their bodies to connect them to the network allowing them to call up and communicate with multiple contacts at the same time The setting was so vividly described that at times I felt like I was watching a movie oh why oh why can t this be a movieBut in spite of all the new technology some things always stay the same For one thing people will still look for love that timeless formless unshakeable deep connection to another soul This makes Love Minus Eighty a sci fi novel that s definitely about the human story and less about the science and technology uestions like how the dead can be brought back to life or how these dating farms even manage to revive dead women for short periods of time aren t the point Instead what s important is the emotional impact of the story and subseuently the ethical implications of keeping women on ice and in limbo basically according human beings who have the potential to live again less rights than what you d give a dog in an animal shelter I also have to say the focus on love and dating was a nice touch not only as it s something practically everyone can relate to but also because it makes the characters and their motivations feel that much poignant It s hard to really say whose perspective was my favorite Rob Veronika Mira and even a couple of the supporting characters because they each had their own experiences which I found acutely heartbreaking and intenseOf course this book wasn t perfect by any means and I for one had some issues with some of the dialogue as well as the pacing especially with the way it led up to the ending However the mere fact that I m usually so persnickety about these things but was still able to overlook them meant that ultimately for me Love Minus Eighty was all about the story and its provocative ideas Above all I enjoy books that make me feel and here s where that whole I m a sucker for love stories comes in and this one was at once a very thoughtful commentary on the ways of the heart and just twisted enough for me to eat it up
