“FOUR STARS! Weeping Water by JT Ruby is an epic novel about cryonic suspension – freezing something with life-threatening injuries in order to heal them when there are significant advances in medical technology. It follows Annie, who dies in a plane crash in the eighties, and Elliot, who dies in a car accident in the nineties, as they try to piece together their lives after being unfrozen. Spanning many generations and covering cryogenics from every angle, Weeping Water is a fast-paced and thought-provoking read.
Like the best of science fiction, Weeping Water poses a number of interesting questions about advances in technology. One might think that saving a life is a good thing, but then there’s a whole lot of turmoil when you’re waking up 35 years later and everyone else has aged, and you’re the same age. The novel is at its best when focusing on the emotional issues surrounding cryonics. It’s like a time travel novel with a technology that’s more plausible than time travel, illustrating that these are issues we may one day need to face. The novel manages to be heartrending and fascinating at once.
Make no mistake: the electric parts of this novel are incredibly entertaining. In many ways, this is the cryonics novel – a hugely ambitious undertaking – and JT Ruby is a bestseller-caliber writer. Each scene is written with great precision and clarity and the action scenes are pulse-pounders.” – SPR Book Review
