A Great Read: Edgy, Techy, Sensitive and Fast Paced,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Dark End of the Spectrum (Kindle Edition)
This is a fascinating story; a page turner. When I downloaded my 99 cent copy on my iPhone via a Kindle app, it was the first book I ever read as an ebook, so the book had two tests to pass - that of a new author and subject area for this non-fiction reader; and that of being read on my iPhone. It passed both.
I loved the book. Loved the high tech landscape of the storyline - which I only partly understood, but didn't have to fully understand to follow the story; it kept me intrigued. Loved the unexpected artistic details, phrases highlighting something beautiful or pointing out a subtlety that made me respect the author's awareness. Loved the physicality of the story - the descriptions of what sensations the characters experienced, like the burning in their legs as they ran for their lives. And I really enjoyed the relationships.
The writing was so vivid I felt like I was watching a movie. (It would make an exciting movie!)
PS The ending caught me by surprise. I wrestled with it, and am still wrestling with it. If I were telling a fellow softie about the book, I'd say, it's a great ride, enjoy it, and maybe stop before the ending! (At least the ending comes at the very end!)
PPS I recommend reading the three reviews written previous to mine, as each is informative to a prospective reader in different ways.
PPPS It's a great read!
