TRANSPECIAL - A BIG RED BOOK REVIEW #scifi   #bookreview  

I haven't written a review for anything in many years now so forgive me if I am rusty.  I will admit freely that this book was recommended to me by the author, an online acquaintance.  They did not offer it to to me freely, just informing me that it existed, and I paid for it with my own money.

That being said (because I want to be honest and forthright so people are not under the allusion that this may have been a paid for review) I wholeheartedly enjoyed the book.  The first chapter or two took a bit for me to get into the rhythm with but after that it was pretty smooth (and fun) sailing.  The idea that an alien species mere visage may on some almost genetic level of memory make communication difficult, if not feasibly impossible, is one plot element I can't really remember seeing before.  

I felt that throughout the story this plot device was wonderfully handled and I loved that while humans (for the most part) thought of these creatures as monsters (though over time they accepted this was irrational) the aliens themselves were very human even with their different biological/physiological needs. Their having three genders was well managed in a very believable fashion.  And for those who may thing that aliens must have complete alien thoughts I tend to disagree.  Specifics may vary, but the abstract basics I have always felt would be somewhat similar.

The human characters were wonderfully, well, human.  They all had wonderful depths and flaws.  Even the main protagonist, a functional autistic, was easy of sympathize with. By which I mean I didn't feel forced to have an emotional reaction to her plight and her growth.  The other humans all had their own very human problems which were not in any way, I felt, overdone.

The story unspooled and grew in a very organic fashion, some parts a bit better than others of course.  One in a while it seemed that situations were strung out a little longer than required but this was really a very minor issue over all. As this was apparently one of her first published efforts I would say they went well beyond a level some could expect of a first time author and easily proved they definitely have what it takes to write captivating and enjoyably stories.

So, now how do I rate this book?  Instead of using some arbitrary number rating scheme I will instead rate using five yes/no questions.

Did I enjoy the book?  YES
Would I read more from this Author? YES
Would I recommend this book to friends? YES
Was it money well spent? YES.
Do I want a Sequel? YES

I will admit it has been quite a long while since I actually wrote something.  I don't mean just on google plus but in general.  It's like I have had little to no muse or idea in forever.  But tonight I had just a little something pop out.  Not sure what it is but here it is.  Will I have more?  I don't know.  Maybe it will be the start of something.

**

It had taken Nolan a total of three days to travel a thousand kilometers.  Three days of alternating between buses and trains, weaving his way northward along the otherwise parched coast.

Someone had once told him that fifty years ago you couldn't travel twenty minutes or twenty miles, whatever a mile was, without actually being somewhere.  A town.  A farm.  A fast food place.  A gas station.  There was always something to break up the journey. But all that remained these days were long stretches of dilapidated and abandoned communities clinging to the old freeways and rail lines like calcified plaque.

Tears, a poem by me


The tears they fall,
My eyes are wet,
I wish to god,
I could forget.

I shame myself,
though action or deed,
of excessive want,
and my lack of need.

Cold light pours through,
the skylight above,
A blissful white,
I've had enough.

An empty bed
no love to give,
no warmth to share
nor will to live.

My heart has died,
my soul has shattered,
everything's gone,
all that mattered.

Slumber is near,
but embrace it I will not,
for when I sleep,
Nightmares are fought.

What is left,
for me to lose,
except fanciful wish,
or passionate muse.

The tears they fall,
my eyes are wet,
I wish to god,
I could forget.

Introduction
Who am I? Well, I'm...

I’m Canadian...
Yes. I am a born and raised Canadian hailing from the interior of British Columbia. I moved to Pensacola, Florida, in 1998 with my now-ex wife. Why did I not go back to Canada after? I dunno, but I am happy I did because I wouldn’t have met my main love. It’s been over a year and a half for us.

I’m a Redhead...
We are the best of the best! Redheads RAWK! We are the coolest sexiest people in the world and if you are a redhead you will ALWAYS get a 10 from me. 

I’m 35 years old...
Oh god. On January 4th I am 35 years of age. If you think I’m old, then screw you. If you think I'm young, screw you too. I’m in that 28-32 year old range that is either too old for one half the population and too old for the other half. Well I am perfectly aged so nyah on you! 

I'm a geek...
It's not a bad word. Geek! That's what I am. Whats the difference between a geek and a nerd? Well geeks listen to better music tend to get laid more often. Or at least I do so I am sticking to it. I love all the things that real old school geeks love. Computers, video games, role playing games, science fiction, fantasy, horror. I like pictures of chicks in chain-mail or nothing at all.

I’m a hard-core...
A hard-core what...? Just hard-core. I like my liquor hard and strong, enough to peel paint off my car and cause small fires. I like my music hard and fast, with a beat that can cause your fillings to shake.. 

I’m a boyfriend and fiance...
Yes, I have a girlfriend and we are getting married! She is my love and mother my daughter and son and a stepson whom are the most beautiful kids in the universe and beyond. 

I'm an artist...
I have always had a very vivid imagination. My drawing skills lack, in my opinion, but I have found so many other ways to express myself. I write stories and poetry since I have a love for the written word. I TRY to draw or paint sometimes but more and more I use the computer as my medium. I like to sing and compose music, everything from jazz and folk to hard core industrial and techno.

I’m a father...
My daughter is 4.5 years old now! And she is my lil redheaded devil! My son will be two at Christmas and he's a little mischievous joker and my stepson is 9 and smarter then all getout.

I’m a friend...
I have a very different view of what a friend is. If I consider you my friend in real life that means thats you ARE my family. That I love you in whatever way is appropriate for that particular friendship. And that I will have your back when you need it. Thus I do not have many friends and a lot of aquaintences. Talk to me and maybe that can change.

I’m a dreamer...
I have goals and dreams and I plan to fulfill all of them. I plan to write and publish a novel. To compose and produce my own album. To film my own movie. To raise my daughter and son and step-son to be their own people. To love my girlfriend, my partner, forever. To live true to myself and not care what society thinks about my views and wants and needs. To have fun!
