    Good idea, weak development and storyline

    A plot scattered obscured by shadows of huge spreading tree limbs, their foliage obscuring the light while reaching for it; completely forgetting the purpose of a story is to spotlight a plot in a manner that allows the reader to see and follow it. The author of Attribution has a vivid imagination. Clearly she sees a plot…she identifies one at the end of the book. However, a reader trying to put the pieces together to arrive at that plot may as well be piecing together confetti after a ticker-tape parade to produce a high resolution photograph. From the blurb, I expected an action conspiracy story. This is a conspiracy story, but the nature of the conspiracy is not apparent until the very end. In the beginning we are treated to a rough landing in an air car and a bit of a promise of more action to come. The information “You fell eight feet” followed by the command “Get up!” implies further action. However, the implication of action is doomed by a main character who spends most of the book locked up ruminating about a past in which the reader is not invited to participate, and the motives of a phantom boss who is never present. This story would have benefitted from logical storytelling where the reader is allowed to experience the plot in a logical progressive manner rather than a shotgun blast of seemingly unrelated information. The story idea is good although very ambitious and far-reaching, but the characters and their actions, and their presentations need a much tighter storyline. The character development is less than adequate. I felt the reader needs to know more about the characters and their backgrounds when they are introduced rather than wait for clues as the story progresses. In addition, in my opinion, this book would benefit from better editing. From all of this, one might think I hated it. Not true. I actually enjoyed parts of it and curiosity drove me to finish it. After all, the end of a story about a conspiracy on such a grand scale should be whopper, right? Since I’m not telling, I guess you’ll have to read it to see. Readers who like dystopian ‘what ifs’ and tales of massive worldwide conspiracies should enjoy it.
