This review is from: The Miracle Inspector: A Dystopian Novel (Kindle Edition)
Having read the long list of good reviews, I was expecting a good book. And I was not disappointed, in fact it was more brilliant than I imagined. Most of the other reviewers have already covered the key aspect of this fantastic book, all it remains for me to say is that it was such a pleasure to read an authentic story line with intricate plot.
Whilst conventional writing wisdom holds that when story gets too dark, audiences tend to flock towards diversion, fluff and ostentatious glamour, but not this book. The author creates a riveting ambience and environment of the murky vision of the future that compels the reader to be absorbed deep into the time, place, characters' emotions and experiences. It offers a powerful lens for examining contemporary society and really push us (the reader) into a fundamental re-evaluation of our lives.
The book is a tender portrait of humanity floundering in the ideological clutches of totalitarianism - deliberately stark but hugely entertaining. Highly recommended.
