#ScienceFiction #BookReview +David Strorm
Recurrence is the first book that I've read from someone that I've met via +Google+ - +David Strorm - who I connected with via circles of Science Fiction type peoples.
Though not a fan of the thriller genre, I am very much addicted to science fiction so I decided to buy David's ebook anyway as I was taken in by the extracts and synopsis on his site: I'm glad I did and by the end of Chapter 2 I was keen to see where Miko ended up and how he fit into the story and how he would connect with Amanda, the protagonist.
From David's synopsis: Amanda and her companions are drawn from place to place across the world keeping just one step ahead of the darkness until finally… Its deadly end game is played out with mind-shattering consequences, four kilometers below the surface of the earth…
It's not until further into the book that the connection between Miko and Amanda becomes apparent to me and I was keen to know just what happened, in the end, four kilometres underground: and find out I certainly did.
In reading this book I found connections with corporate greed, the disenfranchisement of those on the margins of society and portions of David's imagery crept into my dreams (I'm like that with my reading - if I'm enjoying the read, it continues into my sleep). I enjoyed finding out exactly what did happen underground and I enjoyed the final chapter even more than that. What happens underground and that final chapter? You'll need to read the book, of course.
The story is good, the characters are believable, the ideas I enjoyed: the book needs a damned good edit, though, as I found myself getting annoyed at poor use of punctuation, Inappropriate Capitalisation and those every-annoying possessive apostrophes (or lack thereof).
Note: I tried to use G+'s linking mechanism to link to the page for Recurrence on David's site, alas I get a 'Could not load website' message so I'm including the image from the Recurrence page and you can find more information on that page via this link http://goo.gl/Vnn6p
