Bruce Boughner's review Jan 25, 2018 · edit
really liked it
bookshelves: d20-modern, dystopian-future, post-apocalyptic, reviewing, sci-fy
In a future dominated by an Orwellian Dystopian world where neighborhoods are strictly monitored and the populace addicted to soap operas broadcast on billboard-sized screens. Ailsa Santamaria and her daughter Texa are homeless and starving. After a run-in at a food line, Ailsa ends up as a prostitute. But things always seem to get better from Texa's perspective.
A fast read. Its pacing is equally swift and consistent. Mr. Donnelly clearly finds his roots in the Orwellian view of the future. The character's motivations are very clear, A power-mad leader desperately trying to remain in power, the adults strive to survive and increase in social standing and Texa? She just wants her soaps, with the Audible subscription!! The twists and reveals are worth the wait.
You shouldn’t expect unicorns, rainbows, and happiness here. It’s more like Neuromancer by William Gibson, like Elysium, In Time, Equilibrium, The Ghost in the Shell and many other things it reminds me.
Ailsa has an audio- and video- addicted child. They have no home, no rights, no food. Tired of life like this Ailsa decided to over it. Here she receives help from one of her clients.
Regardless of many thought’s lines, even not some full pictures, emptiness where should be descriptions of environments, ripped shapes of the world, this book won’t let you go from the very beginning until the last word. Feel it. Pull through it. And you will be rewarded.
This is a great Urban Fantasy/Science Fiction story with a believable paranormal twist. I highly recommend it. I also recommend this to conspiracy theorist, because it is so believable. It’s frightening when you realize it could be one possible future.
I highly recommend it but be prepared for shocking action.
