More About the Author

In the metal underground, he was known as the drummer Jason Gortician. In the goofy world of nerd rap, he was High-C, an influential figure and star of the documentary "Nerdcore for Life". He's also an established inventor and designer of future technology, as evidenced by the 1998 academic paper "Toward Ultimate Reality".

Now he turns his experiences into underground novels full of lurid sex, drugs, and murder. And somehow, comedy.

It will be difficult not to have a biased opinion of this book. You have been warned.

To say that Christie painted the setting perfectly - as well as the transitions - is very much an understatement. There is a very real first-hand sense of going from the serene beauty of Eden to the darkness of Earth's innards; it was easy to feel how Christie wanted his characters to feel during their travels and tribulations.

Although very precise, the symbolism that was presented is very much open to interpretation. I resonated very much with the main character, in more ways than one.

'Hurricane Regina' is a very thought-provoking adventure down the rabbit hole, one that I definitely recommend.

I just finished Jason Christie's sci-fi book Hurricane Regina. I liked it, personally.

The plot of Hurricane Regina centers around Regina Long, who is kidnapped by someone who claims to be the ruler of the world. Her father, the President Robert Lazurus Long, who happens to be a libertarian, sends Captain Dan Nolan to rescue her.

She meets up with a man named Tommy as she is trapped in a prison called Rapture. She will gain unlimited power, terrible power, that will impact the world around her.

Meanwhile Captain Dan travels through Iceland, Oak Island and beyond, eventually rescuing Regina. However, due to circumstances, Regina's power eventually becomes so great that she impacts and almost destroys the earth, becoming one with the environment and becoming a sort of goddess. Captain Dan and the President must battle against time to save Regina and ultimately face the cataclysm that is Hurricane Regina.

While this is not a mainstream book by any means, Hurricane Regina is certainly creative, intriguing, surreal, and thoughtful. Hurricane Regina deals with deep issues like politics and absolute power without being ham-fisted or heavy-handed. The characters, while not the deepest ever written, feel like actual people in supernatural situations. Dan, the President, Tommy, Regina — all of them are treated like actual persons rather than stock clichés. We can relate to them because Christie has decided to let them breathe and live in the environment they are in.

Also, the writing is simple, to the point, and avoids excessive superfluity or world-building. It's easy to follow, comprehensible, coherent, and simple.

Hurricane Regina is a fast read. The author has a lively sense of humor and many ideas. The only problem I had was being sure whether some instances of corny dialogue were also deliberate parts of the humor, and the whole novel was meant as parody or satire with serious elements. But that didn't stop me from wanting to turn the page and find out what happens next. I also got and appreciated the author's references to Heinlein and other science fiction.

No spoilers here...

To be blunt, I have to compare this book to sex. It was pleasurable, unique, something different than anything I've ever had before , but man, there were times when I would have preferred to slow down and really get everything out the moment I was in before I moved on to the next part. But in the end, I enjoyed the experience so much. Yeah, it was really good for me :)
I would have loved this story to slow down, give more details, let the characters develop more. It was all there, the characters, the events, the start, middle, end... but it lacked a true depth.
In truth, that is a little thing overall with this incredibly unique story.
What did I like best about Hurricane Regina? Well, I had NO IDEA what in the world could be coming next. Not one single idea what was to come. There wasn't a part where I knew what was about to happen. Most of the time, that's great in a book, to a degree, you want to know that you understand the characters and the situation enough to have a rough idea of what they are going to do. Here, however, it makes sense to not be able to figure it out.
It's hard to know what Regina's going to do, given... wait, I said no spoilers. Well, we'll say that there's no way for us to be able to know what she's going to do next, so we'll excuse the total unpredictability here, it fits perfectly.
And the ending was WAY out of left field, to boot.
So in short, this was a shorter read that may have benefited from being expanded on, the characters developed more, and the events detailed a bit more. But overall, way forgivable.

Would I recommend this book to anyone that wants a strange, twist on tradition, almost sci-fi almost philosophical type read.
