  • Nice idea, middle of the road execution

    It starts strong, but is light on detail at times. Small leaps forward with no intervening story telling (e.g., '6 weeks later he...'). We arrive at a point a year in the future with almost nothing connecting the in-between time. Not entirely disconnected, however it could have done with more color in this area. The author has one shining and important moment I wish he'd spent a few more paragraphs on -- the voice in the protagonist's head convincing him he isn't schizophrenic (or otherwise mentally challenged). The 'proof' offered up by the voice could easily have been disputed, but a series of such evidence [I don't want to spoil here] would have been near ironclad. It was an excellent manner in which to demonstrate sanity, but only a single data point so not entirely convincing to critical eye. There is also an editing nitpick -- the character in the protagonist's head speaks in italics so we can decipher b/t the 2. However, the editing has left descriptive text in italics as well (e.g. 'He had to wait a few breaths for a response' followed by the response (also in italics)). It slows comprehension of the author's intention; small speed bumps amongst the reading that make for a 'stuttering' sort of read at times. The first 3/4 of the story is interesting enough that I kept waiting for it to take off. Unfortunately, it bogs down with the [SPOILER ALERT] planned meeting of 2 sides and everything that passes after. Lots of spinning wheels and lack of cohesion in terms of what the first 1/2 of the book has set up. I think it was worth the $5 I paid, but not so much so that I'm going to buy the next in the series. If the plot as described on Kobo sounds interesting, I would encourage you to purchase it. Not everyone is a [name your favorite sci-fi author]; my criticisms of the book are colored by my desire to find a 'can't-put-it-down book' more than a failing on the part of the author.

    Thanks for your feedback!
