When I realised where the book was going I was afraid I would get bogged down in the blur between reality and insanity. I was pleasantly surprised, the boundary was explored thoroughly without it becoming tedious.
9 times out of 10 I can guess the ending of a book. In this case I was left with a few theories before an abrupt and engaging end which I didn't fully expect. I have a few conceptual questions left, is that a good or a bad thing? With this book I think it's appropriate :)
I have a complex and demanding job, I read to relax and set my imagination free. This book was fast paced but engaged in complex ideas which is perfect for someone like myself, an IT geek with a cat :)
I'm very glad I did; this is quite different and a tad unusual, but a gripping and well-written story nevertheless. I couldn't put it down in fact and read it in two sessions (interrupted only by sleep!). I feel almost guilty at consuming what was probably months of work in such a short space of time, but can't wait to try more of his titles.
Judging by the Nightfall book and a quick look at his website, I'd surmise this wasn't Stephen's ordinary genre, but I wouldn't know otherwise; I hope he tries his hand at more works in non-typical genres as I find his writing very readable.
Finally, I often find that my interest in a novel wanes towards the three quarter point (once the ending/plot can be discerned), but that wasn't the case here and it was quite literally a page-turner that keeps you guessing.
Thanks for a great read Stephen, and one that I'd definitely recommend. I'd guess you enjoyed writing this; I hope as much as I (and clearly others) have enjoyed reading it.
The plot quickly descends into a fair amount of graphic sex and violence. I have no objection to this, but some readers may find some of the subject matter disturbing.
Ultimately, while this is a fairly easy read (subject matter aside) the book was disappointing. There were some unexplained loop-holes in the plot which are glossed over at the end.
If you're after a light, but at time challenging book, then its worth a try, but I'd look elsewhere if you're looking for an exciting plot that really delivers.
I can forgive the typographical errors, as I assumed it was self-edited and that's always difficult to do. I could get past some of the dodgy characterisation. I tried to get past the egregious sexual violence, lovingly detailed on many occasions whether necessarily or not, hoping that at some point it would get to achieve some of the promise of the original idea.
No. I was sadly disappointed. Trite, cop-out ending that was signalled in the most obvious way. No deeper exploration, and not even an ending that made sense within the parameters that had been set out in the book's world.
I can't remember the last book I read that was this bad (and I'm including Dan Brown in that assessment). 24 hours later and I'm still feeling cheated, and can't believe I wasted my time and eyeballs on it.
I like Science Fiction. I like murder mysteries. I did not like this, and on this evidence I will not be bothering with any of the other books by this author.
First was the poor use of literacy throughout. Many sentences were "this and that and the other and something else" which dragged on, and made me think "why didn't the writer break this up a little". There was numerous typos that spell-checkers aren't cut out to tell you about. Some areas were not explored with enough detail for you to personally envisage what the writer was trying to convey.
Half way through, I found myself flicking pages as they got tedious and monotonous. Once you start doing that to the book, well it's just not going to work out. Sorry, but this isn't a book that would win any awards. The price is the ultimate give away on the quality to be expected from this book, and will be a lesson to me in future, cheap is not always cheerful!
