This review is from: The Secret Root (The Mesh Chronicles Book 1) (Kindle Edition)
Yes, it fills a slightly different niche, but this book (and hopefully, those to come) is no less compelling. D.S. Cahr's smart, insightful and captivating book reveals a weltanschauung beyond the comfort zone of fantasy and the escapism of science fiction. Cahr brings to life characters and philosophical issues worthy of Madeleine L'Engle and displays a Philip K. Dick-like gift of prophesy vis-a-vis propelling current technology and culture into the near future with an extraordinarily well-crafted and cohesive vision. None of these comparisons should detract from Cahr's original voice and ability to capture (very convincingly) the immediacy of youthful thought. Devoured this book and anxiously awaiting the next.
