Okay, it's a Novel around crime and punishment, responsability and moral, the wrong girlfriend and true love. But is'nt it set a little bit too high? For heavens sake, there is sort of a re-born aegyptic pharao giving philosophical advices!
Science Fiction as the evolution of todays developments is rather weak. Yeah, there exist commercial enterprises who would imprison or kill employees for more profit, that's the social aspect. Okay, there is a funny wrist watch which can do tricks, but that's all what is "scientific".
Last not least, the book is part one of a trilogy and not complete by itself; it ends like it has begun, the hero is still trying to regain his freedom, which is, like in the whole book, incredible difficult.
Two stars in my system is: enjoy, don't keep, don't buy more...
Remark: In my system, five stars is reserved for the most important SF of world literature, e.g. "1984" from George Orwell, and four stars for those I consider all-time best, for example Michael Crichton or some novels from Larry Niven.
This leaves three stars for most of really good Indie SF, but as everybody else at Smashworts does rate a SF novel at five stars if he liked it, I was detoriating the average rating of Smashwords authors I like best! So I decided to change my previous reviews, one by one, and repost them without the smashwords rating. Watch out for my rating in the review text instead!
