1966 wasn’t a great year for Jack. He hadn’t even gotten over the loss of his family and now his doctor was telling him his recent aches and pains were cancer. Going in for his first surgery, he was uncertain he could, or even should, face the challenges ahead. When he woke up to find over three hundred years had passed, an entirely new set of challenges lay before him. Di ...more

The Freezer is David Kersten's first novel. He presents us with a well thought out, original, post-apocalyptic plot.

Chemical and biological warfare has brought humanity to the brink of extinction. Human males are permanently sterile so it is only a matter of time before humans are only a mark in the history of earth. It is only because of cloning technology that there are any humans still left alive.

Discovery of an ancient cryogenic facility gives one of the small settlements new hope for the fu

Futuristic post Armageddon Tale

Frankly I am not a good reviewer of this book. I had too many questions and belief issues to buy into the tale. You need to really get with the story and wade through and I read to the middle the skimmed most of the second half and read the epilogue. That isn't particularly helpful to the author. I gave it three stars because it didn't pull me into the story throughout.

This is a post-apocalyptic tale with a science fiction twist: a guy wakes up several hundred years in the future to a changed world. I liked how the author took a complex situation – cryogenics – and boiled it down to a story that was believable without you crying foul over the science / technology as well as weaving a plausible futuristic storyline.

I picked this up for $0.99 vs. its normal price of $3.99. If you like post-apocalyptic fiction with a science fiction slant, I would recommend this

Very interesting story

I rarely watch a movie but if this were made into a movie, staying true to the book, I would definitely watch it! I love the way the author covered so many different aspects of the story. I usually get bored at some point in most books but that did not happen with this one. I will be watching to see what else he may put out there!

Excellent I'm hooked!

I wanted to ignore the real world and read this all the way through. The characters are well developed along with the world they are in. The conflicts are believable. I will be getting the next in this series now .

Not what I expected.....

I was very eager to read this after reading the book's synopsis, and a short story, The Paradox Cycle, by the same author, but ended being rather disappointed. The characters did not feel well developed to me other than Jack, the main character. The dialogue between the characters at times was fine, but was mostly flat. The premise of the story is intriguing and the framework for a good story is there but the execution feel short. There was not enough focus on the difficu

*I received this book for free in exchange for an honest review*

The Freezer is the first book in the Genesis Endeavor series. Set over three hundred years in the future where humanity is on the edge of extinction, the survivors have turned to science to ensure the future of the human race.

The protagonist, Jack Taggart, is the oldest ‘reborn’ who has been brought back using advanced cloning techniques. His last memory is going into surgery for cancer in 1966 and when he awakes he is shocked to le

This was a truly enjoyable book. The story, the characters and the setting all flowed into an interesting world that I want to know more and more about. I want to see how this community develops, what struggles they'll face and whether they'll reach a new human potential.

This series reminds me of Red Mars in the pure potential available for world development from a common core. I can't wait to find out if the author sees the opportunity he has here to explore the possible different human philos

it was futuristic mystery science fiction story. It is a what if we were able to clone people after they are frozen and what the earth would be like if the countries tried to destroy themselves. I have really enjoyed this book and have already got the next book in the series. It makes you think of the what ifs that could happen now to bring us to that kind of world.

Great read!

I really enjoyed this book. It's unique and has a well rounded l I st of characters. The protagonist Jack is flawed but relatable, making him a great character to read about.

Not bad for a first novel. It is maybe a little to wordy, but I enjoyed the plot and the characters.

“Jack, I need to tell you some things that will be difficult to hear, and your first reaction will be disbelief, but bear with me please. Once I have told you these things, hopefully I will be able to answer some of the questions you have. In the meantime, I want you to spend some time trying to move your fingers and toes. You need to teach your brain how to move again. Now before I get started, are you hungry?” 1 likes
