Genostock - First Scroll Paperback – June 16, 2014
Top customer reviews
A fun & captivating story, set up in a post industrial world recovering from past (our era) environmental disaster. I especially liked the short proverbs (in rhymes!) interspersed among the fast paced story line - Brilliant & creative!
I hope books 2 & 3 follow soon...
This multi layer creation is based on a thrilling story taking place in a future world with a new order. The reader is zoomed out from a single character to brilliant logical structures of inter personal relationships, families and societies. Through building this world, the author uses ideas based on biology, paleontology, technology, geography and more. In the middle of this fascinating world stand the GENOSTOCK - genetically engineered and manufactured creatures, fully functioning on their own and enabling mankind to avoid another environmental disaster. The ideas behind the GENOSTOCK can serve, no doubt, as a future technology of the next startup firm. Indirectly, the concepts that drive this futuristic thriving society are indicative of the author's perception of the maladies that afflict of our current society; greed, myopic thinking, destructive weaponry, aging population, polluting industries and moral decay. No doubt - it makes one think.
Although many other sci-fi books have tried to build a convincingly future world, only a few have managed to maintain depth and credibility while describing it. Moreover, only a few have succeeded in combining their ideas with a powerful thrilling story that doesn't let up even for a single paragraph. Reading GENOSTOCK will keep you alert and tense. You will imagine, think, and debate with yourself. You will love and hate, get angry and disappointed. You will salivate reading the description of the food and feasts. You will be scared running away from the terrible hoolves, and be surprised while connecting the dots between the different stories. At the end of every chapter, you'll be hooked up, waiting impatiently for the next one, as I currently find myself waiting impatiently for scroll no. 2.
