I received a free copy of this book for review purposes.
ABOUT THE BOOK
"Future Gone is conceived as a deep study of human nature, of our hidden, subconscious desires, of the constant roaming in the labyrinth of life and as a journey through human pathology. It presents in a unique way and from different points of view all that is hidden beneath the mask of simple things."
A thought provoking selection of short stories from Bulgarian Author Alexandar Tomov. I give it four stars instead of five, only due to the number of proofing errors within. However, it would be prudent to bear in mind that this has been translated into English - and for that matter, does much better in the grammar department than many an English written book manages to do. I will be sure to be looking out for more from this excellent writer.
The stories tend to be set in the future, and some will amuse, some will disturb, and yet others will provoke the reader into thinking a little more deeply about the issues and questions covered. All in all an entertaining book, and an engrossing read. I read this book in one sitting. Broken down into a series of short stories, this book is excellent for those times when you don't have the time to sit and read at your leisure, but rather allows you the option to dip in and out.
I love the title, and the cover design is spot on for the content. I especially enjoyed watching this book's preview movie. It is obvious that a lot of time and effort has been put into the whole book production process, not just into the writing.
This writer has a lively imagination and the very necessary ability to express his thoughts. I would highly recommend this collection of gems.
