I confess that utopian/dystopian settings always have a great effect on me, and that I just love thinking about, discussing, debating and imagining these kind of things. George Orwell's 1984 truly blew me away when I was quite young. However, nowadays, I'm not often surprised or feel engaged in utopian/dystopian books or movies, as they always seem to me "stories that have already been told". But I knew this "Algorytm of Power" had got to me, when I realized I spent all my lunch break talking with great enthusiasm about it...
For many chapters I was glued to the book, and just until the final chapters I was planning of giving a five star rating on Goodreads, which is not something that happens to me very often. It was only by the final chapters that the story changed for me. This first three parts I considered amazing, and the last really good. If only the final chapters were different... but well, I have nothing to complain. This was truly one of the best books I read this year. And these are some of the reasons why.
The book is very well written, in a simple but efective style. Straight to the point, without overdoing anything. The story has a sound structure, that goes back and forward in time, with no risk of the reader getting "lost". The story is very original, imaginative and creative, with no need to make up stuff, like often happens in science fiction books, where the contraptions, machines, structures are so "out there" is hard for the reader to get in the story and fully understand it. One of the most interesting things to this story is that is really doesn't have much new or made up features, but the way the author combines existing things is truly original.
The locations in the story, for us portuguese people, are familiar day to day places everybody or many people know, and yet the author manages to make it totally believable that so much happens or has happened "next door". It's really an immersive story, and I know this is really strange to say, as it's a science fiction dystopia, but I felt that I shared something with these characters. Also, I almost had a sense of pride for being portuguese like the author, and knowing that there are portuguese authors capable of producing a story like this one. This could easily be a bestselling book in many countries (including Portugal...).
The edition is also great, loved the cover, loved the book, and so...I truly reccomend it. If you love utopian/dystopian fiction, please don't miss out on this one, and even if you don't, I highly recomend you give it a chance, as I suspect many people will be surprised (for the best!).
