I started this book late last night and lost quite a bit of sleep because it was just too good to put down. I was halfway through it before I finally forced myself to stop and go to sleep. I eagerly read the second half as soon as I had a chance today.
First of all, I want to say that Michael Robertson is a talented writer. There are certain styles of writing that appeal to me more than others and Robertson's style definitely appeals. He is insightful and emotionally engaging with his use of words. His main character, Jake, has a ton of depth and I couldn't help but find myself wrapped up in his story.
When I finished reading A New Reality: Truth, it occurred to me that part of the reason I like it so much is because it reminds me of my favorite childhood show: The Twilight Zone. I felt like child again, engrossed in a creepy story, thinking I had it figured out, only to find that I was wrong, and the ending was even creepier and better than I could have imagined. In my world, that is a great book!
There is a little bit of repetition when it comes to certain phrases and dialogue in the story, but it is infrequent and minor enough that it does not take away from the overall awesomeness of the book.
I highly recommend New Reality: Truth for readers who enjoy science fiction and dystopian stories. I also recommend it to anyone who wants a thought-provoking, creepy, well-written book to get lost in for a while.
I will definitely be reading more from this author!
