Mini-Review (click to view--possible spoilers)

Pro: So instead of killing himself, he opts for cryosleep instead. Or perhaps that was the plan all along and "suicide" was just an exaggeration. He plans to sleep until they have a cure for his depression.

There are a number of cute references to SF and to literature. E.g. "The man who folded himself."

Con: So what's with the levitation? And the girl? There's not really a story here--or not very much of one.
