Format: Kindle Edition
This book is a superb modern parable, darker and more visceral than 1984 or Brave New World, it is unrelenting, brutal and at points uncomfortable reading. But for me, the greatest thing is that THE MACHINE has made me question everything about my own life and the world. In its own cunning way, it explores the most complex issues in a subtle simple style. 7's struggle will haunt me for a long time to come, and I thought this was one of the best books I have ever read. It is not however, for the faint-hearted and should be approached with caution.
Please do not be put off from any negative comments on this book or for the very talented author. The description warns of content within it, and although explicit, it draws the reader into the world of 7 and of life itself. Some may struggle with this and it may be a difficult read for those with a closed mind, however if one opens one's mind and is accepting of the story, the talent of the author and can accept that sometimes a safe bubble in life is in fact not such a safe bubble, I think you will thoroughly enjoy it.
I can also recommend D G Jones's other work. :)

THE MACHINE is a very slow, drawn out, and just when you think it is getting interesting, it gets boring. Part of the problem may be it is written in first person, so there is never any description from others.. You only know what the main character is saying and thinking, and never from any other point of view.

Would have been 5 starts if I could buy the complete trilogy as a single purchase (doesn't even need to be discounted).

A first time reader of this particular author, and I am totally hooked! A very different plot written in a mind expanding way, not for the faint hearted however this really has opened my mind to a new way of thinking. I would highly recommend this book, it should be on everyones '10 books to read before you die' list! Give this book a try, you only live once, what do you have to loose??

Wow, what a book!
I would exercise caution with some more delicate readers used to more polite books, but if you want a full-on life altering read, look no further. I have read several other Kindle books by D.G Jones and I must say, he rocks!!!

I haven't read DG Jones before. This book never seems to get moving. it would hold my interest better if there was some hint about the future and some history on how this world came about. I'm waiting but there's no indication that the author is going to address this

I'm not sure how this book got into the public domain even as an ebook. Cynically I can't tell if the degraded grammar and spelling is a stylistic trick to hide the lack of depth and character development or if it reflects the authors actual level of language and thinking. This reminds of one of those examples of modern art where some genius knocks over a bucket of paint and all the want to be art critics explode with enthusiasm lest they reveal that it looks like spilled paint.

I have read other books by this author but considered this to be the best. The author writes in an adapted style which is outside of the 'norm' but this compliments the dark, graphic style of the read; adding to the atmosphere. A very cleverly written piece of work from D G Jones, whom I hope to see more of in the future. Definitely would recommend you read other stuff written by him too, it certainly opens your mind!!!
