I call him HIM by Scott W. Kimak
I call him HIM
by Scott W. Kimak (Goodreads Author)
Read in February 2020
I didn't know what I was getting myself into when I volunteered to pre-read and review this debut author's work. I was working on overcoming a SIX MONTH reading slump and wasn't quite sure I was ready to read the words of someone just emerging on the scene. After a quick Google search of the title I call him Him and Scott W. Kimak, I was rewarded with a small tidbit of what this book would hold, the author's writing style, and a new lease on reading.
I dove in head first not knowing too much about what exactly I was diving into.
I read until I fell asleep the first night. And every day for the following week, I was so inspired to read, to figure out where the story was going, and which action-packed scene was waiting for me on the next page that I took every opportunity I could to read during the day each quiet moment I had during the day and fell asleep reading more the same night until I got to the last few chapters.
All of a sudden, despite the mystery driving me to absolutely devour this book, I didn't want the book to end. I didn't want to find out who He was, or how the story concluded. I just wanted to fully enjoy that I was fully enjoying reading again and that I had no idea what was going to happen next.
This book gave me hope for the future of distopianistic novels all the while highlighting the lesser written form of battle - the deciplined and fine art of kung-fu.
Definitely recommend this book.
Nearly everything is a narration in this book, it tells us everything that happens, but doesn't really show very much. Also. I. I shows up way too much. The tense changes in the book become frustrating, if one character is the main point of view, we should stick with that one character. We shouldn't know anything else going on in the world when the book insists on sticking with the first-person point of view. Instead, we go from I, to someone else, to another person, back to I.
The font changes randomly throughout the book as well. Sometimes its standard then there are whole sections that are italicized for no reason I can see. Why?
Him gets a backstory, of course the wife he lost was "Perfect" and the Daughter was a "Princess on the rise" It's so generic I bet you've seen it a million times, the revenge thing too. Again its all flashback, no show.
The straight good vs evil storyline was too boring for me. Reading this book was a chore, thankfully I got through a promotion. Demons, Satan? Does nuclear destruction unleash hell, something? Honestly, I got lost pretty quick, there was too much plot and not enough story.
I didn't care about the characters, the narrated flashbacks, or the world they live in. I didn't understand how the people didn't understand what phones and cars were, but reference Superman?
I really tried to care about this story but the endless internal narrations. The generic good and evil nonsense, the "God is bad because of pain" angle. The nasty catholic rape backstory one of the characters goes through that, as terrible as it is, means nothing in the end, its just for shock value. Cringe filler is nasty.
If you can take this style of writing, you might find some interest in this story. I couldn't do it. The book had no hooks in it. I didn't care about anyone.
I didn't like this book, but you might.
Three stars. It's just okay, it could have been a lot better in a lot of ways.
