"How do we keep on connecting in our ever-growing maze of social technologies? How can love succeed in the techno-surround we've trapped ourselves in? These are the questions Will McIntosh explores in this tightly plotted tangle of love stories. The stirring result casts a clear and knowing eye on our current society, from the best viewpoint of all: the future."―New York Times bestselling author Kim Stanley Robinson on Love Minus Eighty
"Love Minus Eighty is a book that makes me envious as a writer: a clever premise, brilliantly executed. More importantly, though, it's a book that thrilled and delighted me as a reader, chilling and touching at the same time, a great story that stimulates the mind, the heart and the nerves."―Charles Yu, the author of How to Live Safely in a Science Fictional Universe
"McIntosh's latest novel combines sf future tech with horror to craft a story that is both disturbing and hopeful as it questions the value of a life on borrowed time. The dystopic view of the future is both frightening and plausible, while the characters keep the story grounded in the details of human existence."―Library Journal on Love Minus Eighty
"Building his Hugo-winning short story "Bridesicle" into a novel, McIntosh takes a cold-eyed look at relationships in a grim future... Fans of "what if?" SF will enjoy this dystopian tale."―Publishers Weekly on Love Minus Eighty
"McIntosh manages to show how technology can both divide and unite us while delivering a highly entertaining tale."―RT Book Reviews on Love Minus Eighty
"McIntosh paints an intriguing picture of a society ruled by celebrity culture."―Daily Mail

Good, fun read. My only disappointment was that end seemed abrupt and not plausible given the rest of the box. Thought provoking about the future.Published 9 months ago by avid reader
Really good book, I would have to agree with most people that the theme obviously is that love is complicated. The story is well thought out and the characters had good depth. Read morePublished 9 months ago by zack
