Editorial Reviews

From the Author

Choose is the first episode in the six-part series released last spring, which was expanded and revised from my older novel Echo's Voice. I thought six episodes would complete the story. Not so. I was never satisfied with what I planned to be the final episode. Even as I wrote it, I knew there was more to the story. Episode VII is currently in the works.

I am so happy to see Echo's Voice updated. The story seems more relevant today than ever before. Twelve years ago when I first read Echo's Voice the description of the future seemed more futuristic and less probable than today. The underlying theme of ownership by the corporation(s)/state is applicable to current trends we see today.

As I was reading Choose on my Kindle Fire I couldn't help wondering how the Port device used in Echo's voice was any different from what I was using to read the novel.

I read Choose in two sittings and found myself wishing for more. I am eagerly awaiting the next installment in June.

The dystopian premise of this novel is intriguing and well arranged. However, the dialogue and writing style, in general, was simple and a tad boring. Not to mention that the book was rife with spelling and grammatical errors to the point of distraction (for me, at least). Concepts tended to be over-explained, resulting in me skipping over a lot of redundant inner dialogue.

I hope that the author is able to improve their writing style and skills for future books, because the potential of this series of great. As a single book, Episode I cannot stand up on its own. The book just kind of goes along, with no particular direction, besides showing evidence of civil unrest and conspiracy. There is no conflict resolution here, only build up.

I'm interested to see where this is going, but if the second book doesn't correct the errors of the first, that will be the end of the road for me.

I picked this up through a goodreads.com recommendation. I had a lot of fun reading this, but didn't know it was episodic until I hit the last page. I kept thinking that the ending was going to be awful because I assumed it ended quick. I am happy to say that it didn't end poorly and I am looking forward to reading the next sections of the book.

This is a futuristic story where corporations own people, but the mega wealthy somehow can get rejuvenated treatments. It was not entirely spelled out, but the caste system in place seems quite believable. The characters are deep enough to make you care for them, and root for some while hating others.

This is a fast read, but there are already several episodes after this on Kindle so grab them too.

I would recommend this serialization to anyone looking for a good Science Fiction/Mystery. This first installment introduces a varied cast of well developed character each struggling in his or her own way to find their place in a dystopian future which presents on the surface what appears to be a world where no one has a choice.

I thoroughly enjoyed reading these first 150 pages and have since purchased and begun reading the later installments. So far this serial reminds me of "The Hunger Games" without in anyway being a copy of it, which understandable since from what I gather it predates that book. However both books seem to me to share in a common tone.

Spend the 99 pennies and give the first volume a chance.

Why six episodes?
Each episode runs about 40,000 words. I thought that was a good length for quick summer reads, reading at the pool or beach.
