I absolutely loved reading this book. This is a rollercoaster of thoughts, emotions and visions. There is allegory, history, philosophy and imagination throughout. There is nothing out there like this.

I took a punt on this book and am pleased I did so. A well thought out and well written collection of stories set in the future that are all linked together. It varies from thought provoking to hilarious so there should be enough there to keep most people entertained. Well worth taking a chance on, especially if you like your sci-fi.

I have read a pre-release version of this book and I totally recommend it. The author has managed to get that fine balance of dark and light in his book, with unusual topics blended with a subtle humour and a real sense of 'looking behind the curtain'. Brilliantly written.

Smart sci fi that's worth a read 2 Mar. 2012
By Clarence Bodicker - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I must admit I don't read a lot of sci fi books. I enjoy films like Robocop, District 9, Fifth Element and so forth but must admit to not physically sitting down and reading any Phillip K Dick or Arthur C Clarke. After reading this book I may well do so as this is what many would call an "eye opener".

In terms of the films I've seen the sci fi I like tends to be smart and often quite sharp and satirical, while at the same time being enjoyable enough as an adventure. This is certainly the case with the stories in The Astronomic.

The Astronomic's short stories all take place in the future, albeit in different locations and with different stories. In some respects it's reminiscent of The Animatrix and there is a feeling of a living universe that exists beyond the stories themselves.

What some people may find challenging is the way the stories look at the nature of religion and belief, as well as themes of identity and what people perceive to be morality. It opens some interesting questions in the mind of the reader while at the same time not feeling too didactic.

In short I feel these stories are well worth a try and I heartily recommend them.
