Good plot idea, terrible writing. The story is told twice in different versions, one presented as a dream, and it is unfinished (apparently you have to buy a sequel for the conclusion). It looks as though an inexperienced writer has had a go, possibly stimulated by ideas in other books, but knows little of disciplined writing, relying on the inspiration of the moment until the plot runs out of steam. I'd be willing to bet that Zeddy's dream is an earlier attempt at the story that the writer could not bear to waste. There are some interesting ideas in it and the writer is not entirely without talent, but he (I suspect it is a he) needs to remember two keys to good writing - PLAN and KILL YOUR DARLINGS (i.e. remove things that do not contribute to the story, however much you love them). Another thing -decide who are your target readers and write on their wavelength.
This book has had so many good reviews that I was looking forward to reading it. Now I can't quite believe that the other reviewers read the same book as I did.
Yet another thing - the pseudonym 'Holy Ghost Writer' suggests that this is intended as a Christian book and this is confusing to book purchasers. It is only honest, when selling a book, to make it clear which genre it falls into. Fantasy novel for kids? Sci-fi? It should be clear what one is spending money on. This writer is a good self-publicist, but rather more substance is required.

This was a brilliant book. I was hooked from the product desciption and was not left disappointe with it. It had everything that I expected. As a fan of this author this is one of the best I have read. It had a fantastic storyline, packed with adventure with a lot of twists, I loved every page. This was yet another one that I had great difficulty putting down. It was well written and I found it easy to follow. I got totally immersed into this book. I would totally recommend it. 5 stars from me and thank you to the author for writing this.

The enigmatic Holy Ghost Writer has done it again. This is the second book I've read of theirs and it is accessible, it is expertly written and it is a joy to read once again!

Some of the reviews do this book a disservice when they claim it is aimed at too young an audience but where I drew my lines of maturity became irrelevant once I became wrapped in Zeddy as a character. More so, the underlying themes and the potential for personal exploration of the story thematically allow the ideas to be accessed by any age group - interpretation can be key in developing what is presented to you further. Some reviews do the book down for NOT catering to a younger or teen audience because of the complicated themes. This probably tells you all you need to know about the balance this book attempts to strike and, in my opinion, it hits the mark.

Without getting side-tracked by philosophy or economics I'll tell you this; like J.K Rowling given the freedom of the sci-fi genre, this will enthral. It is dark but approachable. It's a fairy tale that is engaging to the last. This book is fun to read and that seems to be a stable of Holy Ghost Writer's stories. Fundamentally this is a story that will leave you turning page after page into the small hours of the note unable to put it down and, whilst exhausted having done it in one sitting, will have you desperate for the next in the series and to consume everything this author puts out there.

Format: Paperback
The boy who played with dark matter is a continuation in the series of The Count of Monte Cristo written by the anonymous Holy Ghost Writer. The author takes his readers into the distant future of 2099 where the world is strictly ruled by the government, which formulates a minimum of 10-15 new laws every day.

The story revolves around Zeddy, an average boy with an extraordinary IQ, but he has to keep this a secret as the new government would otherwise enforce him in labour.

The plot kicks off when Zeddy's father Zane mysteriously goes missing and he starts searching for him. In his search he comes across the lady of the lake from Arthurian legend, the one who is proclaimed to have created Excalibur, he also learns that there is a lot of information which the government has kept secret from the public, among which is the existence of a new planet called Zamira, in the constellation Libra, which is habituated by dark matter creatures.

Zeddy's allies in his search for his father are his mother and a dark matter creature known as the Zutterfly.

The book contains mystery,adventure and suspense. Blending the world with advanced science as well as magic, it is an excellent read for kids who are amused by sci-fiction and magical mayhem. The adventure is fast paced and the author has beautifully portrayed the minute details of the surroundings and characters.

The Boy Who Played With Dark Matter is a fantastic book and is extremely unique. Hooked from the start with a truly brilliant story line the write has done a fantastic job!

I purchased the book as it was on offer and I was extremely surprised with how easy to follow it was and how I never let the book down to have a break. It is aimed at a varied audience from young to old and really does appeal to all – it will bring back fantastic memories from your childhood.

The fairy tale is engaging to the last page of the book and you just want there to be another one so that the story can continue. It is true when they say all good things come to an end! I would definitely recommend that this is made in to an audio book for children as they would enjoy it so much that their imagination would go wild.

The story revolves around Zeddy, a boy with an extraordinary IQ and keeps it a secret from something that I won’t mention and I won’t ruin the rest. It sounds exciting just from that and I can tell you it is definitely a great book!
I would recommend this book for anyone wishing to let their imagination go wild. It is truly fantastic, I have no bad words to say about it!
