Jeffrey Lockhart's father, Ross, is a billionaire in his sixties, with a younger wife, Artis Martineau, whose health is failing. Ross is the primary investor in a remote and secret compound where death is exquisitely controlled and bodies are preserved until a future time when biomedical advances and new technologies can return them to a life of transcendent promise. We are born without choosing to be. Should we have to die in the same manner? Isn't it a human glory to refuse to accept a certain fate? These are the questions that haunt the novel and its memorable characters. Don DeLillo's seductive, spectacularly observed and brilliant new novel weighs the darkness of the world-terrorism, floods, fires, famine, plague - against the beauty and humanity of everyday life.

This is a modern science fiction novel about medical stasis. The writing is masterful, and a few scattered moments in this book are pure literary magic. The author works hard to contrast the beauty of life with the horrors of the world, but the resulting book is just not very entertaining.
