Right, this is going to be difficult to write. I bought Duallists because I loved Auto which I bought last week. However, it is so totally different that they could have been written by two different authors.
I want to be honest, I didn't like it, but then again, I couldn't put it down - so I am not sure what that means. The word compelling comes to mind.
The weird life of Joel Miller, mining on the moon is just that - weird.
He has a total hate relationship with another worker and spends most of his time trying to work out ways to kill him. And then, as another reviewer has put, came the chapter entitled Chimera - weird is not the word. I don't know what the word is - if I did, I would probably be a writer, not just a reader. Somehow the remainder of the book was expected and understandable, but all in all, well, I've used the word three times already, so I shall use it again, the book is weird - unput-downable, but weird.

I've read and enjoyed many of the author's other book (especially the Auto series) but for some reason this one has languished on my TBR list for a long time. I've no idea why and it was a foolish move on my part because this is an excellent read. It's a sci-fi tale of man working as part of a mining operation on the Moon. The story centres around an obsession he has in out-doing one of his co-workers. In fact it's got so out of hand that there is a vendetta between the two men.

For me good sci-fi is about answering big questions and this story does so although in a quite subtle way. Through the main character we discover how the world has changed and it paints quite a distopian image of the future. It's also interesting to see how progress in certain areas impacts the lives of individuals as well as society as a whole.

I also appreciate stories that manage to surprise me. Even as more is revealed throughout the story I never had a complete handle on what was actually going on and right up to the end it sucker punched me with the ending. As with the author's books it is very well written and moves along at a decent pace. A recommended reads for science fiction fans.

This is David Wailing's off-earth future imaginings. Joel Miller takes an immediate and intense dislike to Reese when he arrives on the Moonbug for mining Mars. All he thinks about is getting even and trying to kill him. The feeling is mutual.

As with the author's Auto series, you get thrown into the future and it is believable. You can feel the claustrophobia of being on a spaceship for years. The tone is adult with a bit of graphic violence.

This was a tidy read. I must admit I skimmed through some of the fighting scenes, but I do that anyway, I like to get back to the story.

This is one of David Wailing's first stories and you can see the seeds of where he got his Auto inspiration from.

I'll start off by admitting that Duallists was completely different to what I expected. The first person perspective of Joel Miller was an excellent decision from a writing point, giving the reader a glaring look into his every emotion.

Starting off as a slow burner, you feel lost within Joel's world almost immediately and it's not long before you believe this could be a true story. The author has created such a descriptive and realist take of life on the Moon, that you cant help but wonder whether he has travelled back from the future.

It might sound silly, but with every little detail carefully depicted and executed in a flawless fashion... you find yourself imagining the vivid, vibrant world Mr. Wailing has created. As you continue to read on, you learn more about Miller, his past and how lunar life has effected his well-being.

Towards the later stages of the book, you are hit by a lightening bolt of a chapter, titled: Chimera. This showcases the writers brilliance and originality... I won't spoil it but it's certainly the highlight for me. Then as to propel my opinion of Duallists, you are hit by a twist, that I for one didn't see coming.

Now it's over, I feel confident in saying that this is one of the best Sci-Fi books I've read in a long time. And even though Joel millers story is over... I honestly feel it deserves multiple readings, just to experience Millers deeply disturbing life once more.

An absolute belter of a Science Fiction story from David Wailing. Set on a mining colony on the moon, David's writing and imagination make it believable that these situations may exist. Characters are beautifully devised and I wasn't expecting the ending. Not a demanding read yet highly enjoyable. I'm not a Sci-Fi fan naturally, but I'm always engaged by David's books. Thoroughly Recommended.
