'Unfettered' by David VanDyke

I downloaded this novella by a fluke of luck. It kept me interested from the beginning to end, made me think of the weird reasons that might lie behind someone's desire to torture other people or living beings, and despite the quirky and murky afterlife in which the three main characters found themselves, it succeeded to put a smile on my face.
What I liked is the feel of absurd, sense of humor and analytic way of thinking of the three main characters while coping with difficult circumstances.
I can't tell you more because I'll spoil the story for you in case you decide to buy and read it, which I recommend. It's worth $2.99, as shown while I'm writing this review.

3.0 out of 5 stars Well worth the short time and small cost 21 Feb. 2013
By MD - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition
"Why am I here? Is this all there is? What's behind that door?" Fundamental questions that humans need to be answered.
The story may begin with a many-times-used setting, but it quickly takes a sharp turn into the unexpected.
Many years ago, I read "The Gates Of Creation," by Philip José Farmer. "Unfettered" repeatedly flashed the feel of Farmer's story, yet definitely retains its originality.
The author manages to develop the characters in a short span as well, including some of their less than desirable traits - that make us all human. Yes, most will know the names before they are openly offered - that does not detract from the story, which is short, and does not wander off course with pages of fluff, which I despise. (points for that)
Now, to one of those 'human' questions: Is that all there is? Next installment?

I thoroughly enjoyed it. just about the time you think you've got it figured out, it takes off in an entirely different direction. Very thought provoking.

Well thought out and well executed. Yes, I figured out the "real" names of the main characters before they were revealed, but knowing or not knowing did does not affect enjoying this piece. Worth reading for anyone. It's science-fiction, it's a mystery and it's an escape novella. Can't wait for the follow-up.
3.0 out of 5 stars Just Meh 4 Mar. 2015

It took a while to get into this book, and part of what got me actually motivated to continue reading was the realization of who the other two men are. (Avoiding spoilers.) If this book had just been about 3 random guys, I would have given up rather quickly.

I did manage to finish the book, but there was nothing very special about it. The idea of what the afterlife is was unique, but it was too easy. (What are the chances that 3 guys who have the appropriate knowledge and skills would end up in the same section of the afterlife?) There was no drama or suspense - the characters decide to do something, and then it happens. Even the very end (where one of them is escaping) lacked feeling. Sure, the character was at risk of dying, but the reader never gets the idea that it will actually happen. It's all very passive, and then it ends.

I guess this book is worth reading, but I don't know that I would want to read it again. What little suspense there was dealt with finding out the reality of the afterlife. Now that I know that, there isn't much else there.
