This is a R2R, given to me by the author. This review is for Future Gone(English version) written by Alexander Tomov. I give it a 3.75.
I will say that I am speechless right now, which is very uncommon. I have really had to think about this review.
My main problem, with this book, is it seems to be partially lost in translation. I do feel like there was enough for me to get what the author was hoping for. Poor word choice, incorrect use of words, grammar errors, typos, and the general lack of editing, became more prevalent, as the book went along.
This is a collection of 23 short stories. As I started to read this, I truly wanted to stop around page 10, but I had to give it a fair chance. This was my first time reading anything even close to this. These shorts contain heavy, dark, twisted, and morbid, story matter. I found them to be very thought provoking. As I continued to read, I became continually intrigued, and could not stop reading it. However, I felt some stories needed more, but they are called short stories for a reason. Some of the stories, seemed to fit together, but I don't know if that was intended. These stories left me with so many questions, but when it comes to matters of the mind and opinions, everyone has them.
I would read this again. I would recommend it to anyone, who likes thought provoking books. Make sure you take your time, this is a short book, but it is jam packed with ideas.
I want to thank the author again for giving me the chance to read and review this book. I appreciate it. I hope you find this review helpful.
