Review

"Chinn's style is engaging. The world is fun, and the characters are sympathetic... a wry under-stated humor permeates the writing." - Paul Westermeyer, KODT Magazine 

About the Author

     Noah was born in Oshawa, Ontario, and had never really forgiven it for that. Shortly after university he moved to Tokyo, Japan, where he taught English for three years and barely learned a word of Japanese. 
     After that he moved to London, England to make it as a writer. Unfortunately in much the same way aspiring actors move to Hollywood and end up as busboys, the closest he came to literary success was working at several bookstores - each of which mysteriously closed down after his stay.
     In addition to writing novels, Noah had a long running comic strip called Fuzzy Knights, which centered about the adventures of stuffed toy animals playing Dungeons and Dragons, and the evil hamster trying to destroy them. 
     Some have called this a cry for help. 
     He now lives with his unbelievably patient and supportive wife, Gillian, in Vancouver.

Trooper #4 is a genre-bending, existential thrill ride!

At least that's how I'd write the blurb for the front of the DVD. On a more serious note, this really was an enjoyable story that caught me completely off guard.

I feel I should give potential readers the same type of warning I was given prior to reading Life of Pi - "Don't give up, it gets better!" In the case of Yann Martel's masterpiece, the warning was to get me through the first half of a book that was, I have to admit, painfully slow. In the case of Trooper #4, the opening does not lack for pace but for substance. That changes. Dramatically. So don't give up!

What begins as a yet another end-of-the-world zombie-fest (not quite "zombies" but close enough) takes a mind blowing twist when the protagonist, T. Felice, realizes she is not the hero of this story. Or is she?

That's as much as I want to give away because the fun of this novel, on the first read, is the surprise. Just as Martel did, Chinn managed to flip a story, more than once, and leave me wondering how I never saw it coming. And though the genres are different, both authors managed to pile on layers on meaning within a seemingly simple narrative.

Chinn's writing is economical and effective, the pace is fast, and the story is gripping. Trooper #4 has all the elements of a classic action story--compelling hero, evil villain, a world in need of saving--but with enough metaphysical twists and turns to feed every reader's inner philosopher.

I look forward to reading more by Chinn!

Love it. Very original book unlike anything I've read in the past. It is horror based on the story, not the gore, which is what I enjoyed the most. The mystery of who she was...was different and I was shocked when I found out who she had been the entire time at the near-end of the book. It left me with gasping. The killers may seem like zombies but they weren't. It was a supernatural power that cause people die or turned them by a touch. That's the only part I'm fairly uncertain how it worked. But then, it didn't ruin the story at all because I still loved it. I definitely will continue read more of Noah's book and hopefully the author will write more of "end of the world" stories in future. This author's creativity is awesome.

I picked this book up on a whim and was pleasantly surprised. The stofy was original and the the premise was fun. A post apocolyptic romp well worth the time. I willbe picking up the other work by Noah very soon.

Greek mythology, horror, meta-story elements. It's well-blended, aside from the awkwardness of the first couple of chapters. The details are fleshed out sufficiently, the character have their charm, and an author makes his mark. I enjoyed it, and look forward to other works by Mr. Chinn.
