What is it like? I'd have to say it reads like an "old school" science fiction book; Isaac Asimov, Harry Harrison, etc. It was a quick and enjoyable read. I would definitely recommend The Long Sleep to anyone who likes sci-fi stories.
Minor spoiler: the body swap.
At one point in the story the main character finds themselves not only in a different body, but a different gender as well. As a transgender woman I have a love / hate relationship with this particular plot device. For most of my life before transition I was obsessed with every sci-fi or fantasy reference to changing genders. Now many of them strike me as extremely stereotyped and shallow.
The Long Sleep however does an extremely good job with this. The main character is male and finds himself in a female body. Instead of delving into classic male fantasy however, the book describes the challenges of his transition quite well and comes fairly close to capturing how it feels to be in the wrong body.
A great Sci-fi/detective/thriller, with a twist in Ch 18 that puts the story way above most books of this genre.
Very good indeed. Recommended - to anyone, not just to Sci-fi readers.
A very entertaining and enjoyable read. I'll definitely pick up Stephen Mellor's next book.
