    3.5 stars

    This book is about a guy named John and he lives in the London. This story is set in the future. The world is in trouble. London has flooded, building are 100-150 stories in the sky. Everything is electronic. Every one has to swipe to get in their building, work, every where. You can be tracked by that at all times. They have farms in the sky. There is a lotto going on all over the world to part of the CRYO program. John had bought a ticket and finds out that he has won a chance to be part of the program. Ever since his wife died in a terrible terrorist attack he has felt like he doesn’t want to go on really. The earth is dying and it’s only a matter of time before it gets worse than it is and every one dies. He sees the chance to participate in the CYRO program as a chance to sleep through the worst and wake up to a better world. Once the media finds out that he has won he swamped every time he tries to go anywhere or do anything. When he tells his family that he has won and is going to participate in the program not everyone is happy about it. His mom is terribly upset about it, she feels like he is just leaving his family and being selfish. His brother and sister wish him well and are excited for him. His dad is just trying to calm his mother down. His girlfriend is happy for him and this chance. They have to go to what is called the grime level to get picked up for the program. When he gets to the facility he learns there are not enough pods for everyone. You have to go through physical, mental, and other tests to be picked. Not everything is as it seems. Things don’t all add up after he is there for a bit. Are they being told the complete truth? Will John be one of the people chosen or will he be sent home in shame?

    For me the book was a bit slow, not enough action. The closer I got to the end the better I liked it. I have the second book but I’m still not sure I will read it. The idea for the story I liked. I idea of being frozen and then brought back 50, 100 years in the future. It sounds exciting. I like John’s character and Kath’s too. His mom was a bit extreme. The book was very well written and the characters where well thought out. The story just wasn’t for me. It isn’t what I normally read but I do read outside my norm occasionally.

    I was given this book as a gift in return for an honest review.
