Why surprising? Because it's self published. The story is entertaining, and very much par for the genre (military/cyberpunk). Development feels a little thin, much of it is comfortably predictable, but there are several interesting details, even it doesn't really break any new philosophical ground for a fan of the genre. There's nothing *wrong* with it, as much as it seems that it could be so much more. It's clear that the author is thinking and thoughtful.

Normally, I wouldn't write this sort of damning with faint praise review, but here's the thing: Since reading this book, I've [tried to] read other Amazon self published sci fi by other authors, and I've discovered that there is a lot of crap out there, with 4 stars and better, that is literally unreadable because the dialogue is so stilted or the characterization so flat - and that doesn't even get into copy-editing issues. I should probably go give *those* books 1 star reviews, but then I'd feel like a jerk.

So here's the deal. Prosthetic Gods doesn't do anything that isn't genre, and it doesn't soar to literary, but overall, it's well written, and good enough to scrap with (and in some cases dominate) books that have a named publisher. If you've already read and reread your first tier stuff (and you have), you won't be disappointed if you pick this one up to scratch your cyberpunk itch.

This is a very creative imagining of the future. In this future, people and computers are highly integrated and bots do most of the dirty work. The plot centers around an assassination committed by 2 people which then keeps them on the run for the rest of the book.

I find this book very hard to describe even though I liked it a lot. If you like sci-fi, you will enjoy this. The main characters are well developed and easy to like. It has a very distinctive "Mad Max" kind of feel to it.

The only downside is that it is often hard to tell what is real and what is virtual. I'm not sure if the author did that on purpose or not. Also, the world he's describing is so different from ours that a little more explanation of some things would be in order. That is something I almost never say about a book.

As difficult as this book may be to describe, it is a very good piece of storytelling and well written. It kept me engaged and curious.

The author gave me a copy for review through librarything giveaways. Thanks for the chance to read it!

not a bad story, a little bit disjunct in some parts. slightly hard to follow at the beginning, but improved as you read along.
