Two, I'm pretty sure the virtual box set was on sale and I saw an ad for it. I say that because if Susan Kaye Quinn happens by I want her to know that the sale, and the ad, worked. I'd never heard of her until I saw the ad, with that cover, and clicked the link which brought me to the sale. Of course I read the description too which was enough to pull me the rest of the way into the boat.
So how is the story? Fascinating. Gripping. Exciting. How many other -ing words can I come up with? Too many, so let me give you some details. This is YA science fiction, set in the not-too-distant future. Society has changed a lot, due to all those drugs and chemicals we dump into the water without thinking. It messed with people's minds and made everyone into mindreaders. That's right, everyone can read each other's thoughts. Constantly. Can you imagine? I think I'd go insane.
On the one hand, how cool would it be to have that sort of communiction but on the other hand, do you really want to know exactly what the person next to you on the bus is thinking about your outfit, your hair, your face or your body odor? Some things are better left un-communicated.
Society has adapted to the new way of life to the point where anyone who can't mind read is a zero. A nothing. Less than dirt. A sub-citizen not to be trusted. So what happens when evolution steps it up a notch and some people can guard their own mind while being able to "jack" into someone else's? What happens when some people can control other people's thoughts, rather than just reading them?Read more ›
There are three books in this series, Open Minds, Closed Hearts and Free Souls. I guess these would officially be young adult books as the main character is 16 when the story starts, but they were really well written and I enjoyed every moment of the collection. No one ever really considered Deanna Troi scary with her telepathic abilities on Star Trek, but Ms. Quinn has asked us to consider another side of telepathy. If most of the people in the world were telepaths and a minority of those were able to control the others in various ways, what would that lead to? How frightening would it be to have someone else control your mind? These are some of the questions that Ms. Quinn took on and she did a fantastic job. These are well-crafted, living, breathing characters with flaws, heartaches, fears and stupid mistakes in a world that seems all too real. The storytelling captured me right away. The quality is excellent. In all three books I only noticed two places where the words had been transposed and at no point was I drawn out of the story by its mechanics.Read more ›
First of all, the Mindjack Trilogy, by Susan Kaye Quinn is an incredibly fresh spin on the futuristic, young adult, paranormal/science fiction novel - with a semi-Orwellian flare! Our female protagonist, Kira Moore is a zero - a post-adolescent teenager who cannot read minds. The story is set 90 years in the future where everybody can read minds - or, more specifically, thought waves. This new society comes with new norms, mores, laws, codes, faux-pas, and even its own slang terms. Personally, I LOVE IT when an author includes these details. I'm usually the reader who thinks, "now how would that really play out in everyday life? Is this at all plausible?" And Quinn provides that information seamlessly. A lot of times, an author will throw facts about this strange new world all into one long paragraph or at random times where you can totally tell "here comes an info paragraph". But, Quinn has a way of bringing these facts to the readers' attention subtly - almost like the reader has been living in this world for ages - like they already knew the info, and were just sorta ruminating over it. Quinn wanted her readers to hit the ground running, and let me just say, she was VERY SUCCESSFUL. And she does this throughout the entire series - it is nearly nonstop action!! But at the same time, I felt like I could belong in this world - yet, oddly enough, I could still watch it as if on the outside of the "fishbowl". I'm not sure how she does that, but it's pretty cool.Read more ›
