1.0 out of 5 stars Needs Work April 24, 2012
By Reader1
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I like a good sci-fi story, but this isn't it. It was impossible to get past the mismatched verb tenses-sometimes past tense, sometimes present tense. The author's use of punctuation before AND after closing quotation marks is not only grammatically incorrect, but also disruptive to the flow of the story. Paragraph structure is another issue; every time the speaker changes, there should be a new paragraph. There are several paragraphs that each comprise an entire conversation, and it's difficult to follow the story when it's all lumped together like that. As for the story itself-interesting premise, but with no detail or background information, no character development, and stilted dialogue, this piece reads more like a writer's idea notebook than a finished piece.

5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome!!! February 24, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This was an awesome science fiction short story and has some interesting details. It is supposed to be taking place in 2032, but the detailed narrative includes events happening already to some extend and it sucks you in, straight from the beginning. I also like how this is written, as Kevin the main character is not a writer and any mistakes, make it appear as a true manuscript someone would write in a post apocalyptic world.
This is a very possible future and it is worth reading, if you enjoy science fiction.

3.0 out of 5 stars Feels rushed. March 29, 2013
By Travis
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
There is not much to complain for in typos. But, the flow of the story feels like it skips. So many events in the story are covered and i find it difficult to imagine the scene before it changes.

I can say it's close to an exaggeration of the current concerns for the US nation. The transhumanism vision of the chip is fairly cool in itself, but I find the scale of evil corporation to be a bit obnoxious. The perspective is strictly shined on an evil entity being so greedy that it's outright obvious but the rest of the nation is so helpless and dumb.

I can understand the encouragement to use critical thinking, but I feel like the story is just setup so specifically as to convey much of what the author thinks in common with the current population.

I would recommend this to those who devour literary "junkfood". It's a nice half-hour read to decompress from hard mental work, like I just did.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great Idea - Needs Work! March 27, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I read this and was instantly interested in the basic premise: That in some future dystopian society, people would be controlled by neurochips implanted in their brains. The vision of a grim future is pretty likely where we're going: Total pollution, energy chips for currency, all work offshore, coal-based energy buys out all green energy, a very corrupt coporatocracy using these chips to control people, and even depopulate people they don't want with suicide signals from the chips.

I will have to say the author needs a good editor. The conversion to Kindle was lousy. The writer gets present tense and past tense mixed up. It is obviously a draft, not a finished product, more a summary of the book and basic premise. If this could get developed properly, this would be a GREAT novel!

I invite the writer to email me: john_forrest@verizon.net. I would like to discuss a possible collaboration.

1.0 out of 5 stars No. Just No. April 26, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Maybe if the author cared enough to publish part of a finished book, I might care enough to give it a review. As it stands, as published, I would sooner read a Twitter feed.
