I’m a sucker for a good conspiracy, and I love flawed characters. This author knows how to deliver both. You can’t help but root for Joe Ballen. I really enjoyed unraveling the clues and playing detective with him. The bleak setting was well done, and I liked that it wasn’t heavy sci-fi where I needed a degree to follow along. With the author’s descriptive style, it played out like an action movie in my mind. For some reason, I kept picturing Hugh Jackman in the lead role, sort of like his character in Real Steel. The down on his luck ‘everyman’ who falls into one bad situation after the other, fighting against the odds as he dolls out witty lines that occasionally made me laugh out loud. The plot was smart and far from predictable. It kept me guessing and coming back, turning the pages.
Mathematics of Eternity is a great read. I was thoroughly entertained and would recommend it to any fans of dystopian sci-fi.
Joe is living the life of a taxi driver a lot like Corban Dallas in one of my top ten favorite movies, Fifth Element. Unlike Bruce Willis, Joe was in a horrible accident that left him in prosthetic limbs he couldn’t get used to. One other thing they have in common is that the fate of life itself is on the line.
I enjoy both Kelly’s vivid imagery, especially during the doc’s big scene, and the characterization shown in Joe through recurring quirks.
Romance in the novel is every bit as scifi as the central plot. Joe’s boss really is the complete package! Others take internet dating to the ultimate level.
I was given a free review copy at my request and have voluntarily left a review. Any review. That fact that it’s a good one is because the book is good. Which has nothing to do with how awesome I am. You’ll have to find that out for yourself at LARC-SciFi(dot)com.
I'm a big fan of future sci-fi and an even bigger fan of flying cars, plus I'm keen on the color pink, so before I even cracked the book, the cover on this one had me drooling a little.
Inside was even better than the flashy package. In the tradition of twentieth century sci-fi masters, David Kelly tells a tale of a bleak yet cool future but with a modern update. Earth is done for. We've destroyed the planet. Water levels have risen dangerously, and winter is a mostly forgotten memory.
And yet there's hope. Well, sort of. There's at least the illusion of hope in the form of an interstellar craft, whose construction cost our protagonist Joe his career as well as a few limbs. Now, as a taxi driver, life is a little slower and more mundane.
Until, of course, it isn't.
Highly recommended for sci-fi purists and casual readers alike.
This is an intelligent and fast-moving science fiction book in which the action mainly takes place on earth. There’s something of the dystopian future about this story, liberally laced with action, adventure and quite a lot of fun. I can see more possibilities for this concept as the science and the political background are convincing. The characters are well fleshed too, and it would be good to see some of them again. This is a long book but it never drags and if this is your genre, you’ll enjoy it as much as I did.
Interestingly odd/different story, and as usual not going to give rundown of plot; read the blurb, better yet read the book already.
