The New World
by Eli Horowitz & Chris Adrian
An interesting structure leads to a highly engaging book on a very common subject, marriage. A wife comes home to discover her husband has passed and has left his "consciousness" to a strange cryogenics company. And that's just the beginning. The story oscillates back and forth between the two and while the setting and situation are otherworldly the comments on married life are spot on reality. They dissect ideas of honesty and fidelity, love and respect. Actually, the only thing that disappoints me about this book is the cover. It's boring and basic unlike the complex story on the pages. In their quest to look "literary" it just comes across as boring which this book is anything but! Fresh out in paperback recently it's definitely worth taking a chance on.
