The story starts off with a group of men finding themselves in the same room on an alien spaceship. All the men are from different backgrounds and all react quite differently to their situation.
Slowly the men’s numbers start to dwindle down as aliens come and take one man at a time. The story then starts to alternate so that we get to know a bit more of each man’s background. I think this way the reader gets to know the individuals better and have more empathy for them and for what they are going through.
The parts where the men are taken by the aliens definitely felt more like a horror. The fear that the men feel whilst waiting to be taken was agonising. It certainly is not a situation I would ever want to find myself in and I was scared to read on to see what fate had in store for them.
This is one of those stories that would make a great film as well as being a great read. Even though not a genre I read much of, I definitely enjoyed the whole story line and it left me feeling slightly chilled by the end. I certainly look forward to reading more by the author in the future.
My thanks to the author for a copy of this book. All opinions are my own and not biased in anyway.
This is a total gripping story that you just can’t find a place to stop. It is such a very tense read. There are a total of six men in this room and each of them recount where they were when the invasion began and it begins to piece together. What a story! This is such a very well planned novel that as it went on I am sat there nodding my head and agreeing with some true events out of our history and thinking Jesus this author is such a very clever bloke because it all came together perfectly. Fact and fiction and read like a true account and what an absolute belter of a story he came up with. I just had not guessed, not until it was in my face! Superb. I just sat back and thought for a minute, shocked and numb.
I do have to say though there is a lot of very violent scenes, very inventive violent scenes. If I just say these aliens are not the kindest of creatures. So you have been warned but this is such a compelling book. This has to be the one of the best books in this type of novel that I have read because there is an explanation for it all. Just brilliant!
I wish to thank Chris Botragyi for a copy of this novel which I have chosen to review.
As you read you know that in this situation, that is how people with these distinct personalities would behave. That alone is a sign to me of writing skill. The reactions of the events by these unsuspecting men made me chilled with the realization that this is exactly how I would react to this situation. I would be sickened with fear, wanting to be brave and unsure of what was coming next and what was happening to my companions.
The telling of a story in a way that flows well, while keeping you so in touch with the basic emotions of the participants that you feel what they feel and it feels right.
Blurred Vision takes the almost cliche notion of apocalypse-by-alien-invasion and layers it with chapters of terrifying intrigue (and later, splashes of religious history that forms the basis of humanity) to create a new deadly - and somehow believable - threat.
A group of men awake aboard an alien craft, held inside a terrifying and grimy cell, constantly on edge as they await the appearance of their extraterrestrial captors, their belief in survival dwindling as one by one they are taken away.
The author tells of their individual plights masterfully, whilst indulging in their own mournful back-stories in between chapters. The whole concept makes this such a gripping read.
Trying my best to avoid giving away spoilers, this book will take anything you think you know about the fate and history of this world and turn it on it's head.
A thoroughly immersive, compelling and chilling read. Up there with one of my favourite literary discoveries of 2016.
