For me, the intrigue and intense curiosity of what our world will look like and what our behaviors will be like in the 3400's was the main thrust of my interest when I first began to read The Turret . Added to that excitement was when I learned that much of the Earth bound drama centered around Central New York- the exact place where I spent the first forty years of my life. The technical aspects of space travel and the direction of the plot line were a tad confusing and a bit difficult to grasp in the beginning but the story soon finds its course. Near the end of the story, the author begins to nicely tie up the purpose and moral of this future tale and the story's impact is left to the reader to ponder.
James McAllister is a good writer with even greater potential. I look forward to reading more of his work.
The only thing I did not like was the time/date/location at the beginning of each chapter, especially when the story skips around in time, it's not practical for me to have to zip back and forth to make sure I got the sequence right. I am now reading the next book and it is unfortunately the same way.
Author did use his spell-checker well, so the only errors I ran into were ones a spell-checker will not catch. (...missing words a couple places (the word 'he' for instance), "thought" where he meant "though" and "though" where he meant "thought" and things like that. many of those seemed to be in the first chapter with only a couple obvious errors later in the book.) I saw another reviewer found the format confusing, but I felt it was a straight-forward way to show change of point-of-view. Also, I felt the "evil" forces working against the main character and his family to be just another feature that helped add to the intrigue angle, and keep you wondering.
All-in-all it was a pretty good story as long as you can put up with a few grammaical errors one or two of which you may have to think about, wondering what was meant or what word was missing...
