This novel is suitable for both teens and adults. In fact, several of the principle characters are in their upper teens, but this book is so much higher quality science fiction then the ridiculous but popular drivel that is called teen sci-fi nowadays. This future world is complex with multiple cultures. I love how PK Tyler has written the humans on the reservations talking in a different dialect from the hybrids and the Sabaal character. The author deftly introduces us to each person and their situation and slowly gives us a bigger picture of what is happening in this polluted future earth.
This wonderful epic book really deserves to be a bestseller, and I really hope that a lot of teens read it. I am in my thirties and I am very picky about sci-fi books, mainly gravitating to the classic like Asimov, Heinlein, and Phillip K. Dick. "The Jakkattu Vector" has a lot of depth, so it may become a new classic. There are themes of identity, linguistics, prejudice, slavery, global warming, and stagnating culture. I recommend it for all sci-fi fans. Also, the characters are each unique and memorable. Occasionally a little bit of prose does not flow well, but that is not very common in the book.
I’m old enough that I remember how the old Star Trek episodes also address serious social issues such as prejudice, war, the environment, feminism and others. If you are a younger sci-fi fan you may have watched these as re-runs and not realized how ground breaking they were for their time when they were prime time episodes.
This book is like that. Sure, there are the typical sci fi elements such as aliens, genetics and scientific experimentation. If you like a good adventure, you will find that here. There’s also a good deal of thriller aspects to the book. There is a good solid plot to keep you entertained while your mind considers the bigger issues and themes.
There are two matters that may affect your enjoyment of this work. It is part of a larger story, so there is a bit of a cliffhanger. There is also a good deal of violence by way of torture scenes and some non-consensual acts. These things don’t bother some readers, but some have strong preferences about these factors and their satisfaction with a book.
I wasn't sure what to expect when I started reading this book but was pleasantly surprised by what I read. The author has done a good job of creating a dystopian world full of aliens, different classes of humans, and technology (or lack of).The beginning moved slowly as the author described this world and characters in detail that you can visualize. I'm glad I stuck with it through the slow parts as the book was worth it.
Overall I really enjoyed reading this book and want to read more about these characters and world. Unfortunately, at this point there aren't any more books in the series written yet.
