Why am I not clear? Simple..it is not like any other book I have ever read, and I mean that in the most positive of ways.
Kai-Me-Rah breaks every rule in the book (no pun intended), it is set out as a 'sci-fi' but to restrict it to this genre almost seems criminal. What Steven Loton does is not give two hoots about what has come before, he makes sure the book focuses on some absolutely brilliantly realized characters, the prime one is the books anti-hero Turo, on the surface a well trodden downbeat character who has special 'abilities' but has never reached the heights you feel perhaps he should. But again; nothing is conventional - Turo cannot be put into a b ox, there are complexities to him that seem subtle and not over explained (like so many other books). Also the relationship between Turo and the object of his suppressed love Maria..may just be one of the most realistically constructed, and beautifully simplistic love stories i have read.
What makes it all so great? As mentioned Loton does not care about constructing a futuristic world that highly tuned geeks could roam around in forever, what he does care about is pure expressionism, he writes with his balls out (metaphorically...i hope) throughout the whole novel his prose are at once funny, tough and bittersweet. I found the whole style utterly addictive and have downloaded his book of shorts already.
I can't recommend this enough, completely unconventional, completely engrossing, completely unique...completely Loton. Watch out for him, i will be.
I found the opening chapter to be mesmerizing, and full of the essence of cyberpunk including bodily enhancements, lots of good prose, often funny but very well written.
"Not you shipwreck" was how a drunk rejected the attentions of an unattractive girl, and I hope To remember that, and have the guts to say it, if I find myself in the right situation
After the opening frenzy where Truro wins through to fight another day, Logon allows the story to resume a more narrative pace which is easier to follow. Then the complex but straight line story unfollds and more cyberpunk is revealed. It is fascinating how Truro finds out that he actually has fully functional wings in his back, but so easily done that the credibility of the story is not compromised.
This book is a stimulating read that grabs you from the start, and I can't wait for KAI-2 which is apparently in the wings!
The story is exciting and moves at a breakneck pace. It is jammed with wise cracks, awesome lines and some of the catchiest dialogue you will ever read.
Can’t wait for the next book, if there is one? Mr Loton?
