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!!!

**UPDATE 11/13/12-Please be aware that since my original read through of this book, it has been edited and refined for a smoother read. I have not read through this edition as of yet but I would venture a guess that it will most definitely be a 4/5 star read. This story had a great premise but was so difficult to sift through the editing errors that I couldn't enjoy it as much as I was hoping. Please don't let the below review scare you off as it was done prior to any formatting or editing changes.

**DISCLAIMER: Below you will find my original review of this book which resulted in a 2 star rating. Because of the author's exceptional way of dealing with the criticisms I've listed below, and because of his further explanation of the writing style, I am changing my review from a 2 star to a 4 star and will gladly read other pieces of literature by the author. The comments presented by the author and the way it was done truly shows how much they appreciate the opinions and feedback of their readers and that means so much to an avid reader that I felt this was only appropriate.**

So let me begin this review by saying that if the first sentence of the book was any indicator of the kind of book this was going to be then I would've loved it. The first sentence reading "They rammed a four-inch spike down blue 316's urethra before they hung him.", led me to believe that this was going to be much more of an exciting read then it was. I have many things to comment on regarding this book and I have outlined them below:

*Why was this called the easy read edition? From what I've read from the other reviews both editions (Industrial and Easy Read) were both hard to get through do to the massive amounts of errors throughout the book.

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.
