    This is a Fabulous Story

    This is a fabulous story from start to finish. It’s so well written, with a very clever and interesting plot. The unpredictability of the story is one of the many things that appealed to me. Kfir Luzzatto has put together a great group of characters, and it was easy to like Amber and Kal, two of the main characters in the story. I know how much I’m enjoying a book when I need to stop reading it, when life gets in the way and I can’t wait to pick it up again, and this was certainly one of those. With Kal being implanted with a chip in his head on his first birthday, he had never known any other world or reality. Kal lived and worked in the city as a Physicist for the High Professor, who controlled everyone via their chip. It was hard for him to understand how someone that didn’t have a chip, would enjoy living as much as he did, as Kal was sure there wasn’t a better way to live than in a controlled environment. It wasn’t until he met Amber who was from the Freeland, that he discovered how different things were for people outside the city, who weren’t controlled by a chip. Sure, life was sometimes harder, but he was experiencing things he had never done before. Maybe there was a better life outside the city, however Kal and Amber are going to have a tough time of it in trying to make it to Freeland alive and in one piece. Add this book to your reading list, you won’t be disappointed. It’s well worth the 5/5 Star

    An ulikely hero to save the day

    Chipless presents a story of an unlikely hero, and his struggle to free a society that doesn’t even know that it’s enslaved. Kal is one of the City elite, a technician valued for his skills and kept in luxury as he works to improve the chip implanted in every citizen’s brain that maintains their health. He enjoys his work, and he’s good at it: so good that one day, one of his experiments disrupts the chip’s input to his brain, and he sees a flash of the outside world as it really is. That peek behind the curtain sets in motion a train of events that may overturn life as he knows it... Kfir Luzzato’s protagonist undergoes a lot of personal growth during the course of this book. From a law-abiding and somewhat geeky scientist, Kal becomes a highly effective and self-reliant traveller and fighter in the space of a few weeks—and becomes quite irresistible to women over the same period. While Kal’s evolution periodically raised my eyebrows, I found that the world-building was by and large very solid and well-done, based on ‘Matrix’-style themes of a citizenry controlled by a virtual reality to hide a dystopian reality from them. The wild-West settings beyond The City provide a salutary contrast as a backdrop for Kal’s adventures. Definitely worth a read for sci-fi fans.
