Reviews of Cactus Land by Robert Bonomo

Lee Willard reviewed on March 20, 2021

This is a story about civilians getting ready for war and what it means to them. Their concerns, their affairs and their lives are the story, not the war or any other action. It is a war of the developed world vs. the third world, but it is not set in any country or place we would recognize. It is not really another planet or a parallel universe, it is like when mainstream fiction uses a fictitious town which could be real, just on a larger scale. Should it really be called Science Fiction? It does not have the feel of Sci-fi, but of the fictional town in mainstream fiction. The time period may be slightly in the future, or slightly in the past.

The book is all about the characters and their interactions. None of them are particularly likeable, either as heroes or as average people, but they are three dimensional enough to be interesting. Enough that the story might have been worth four stars if it was complete.

Right, this book is not complete. It goes along and goes along, the characters go about their lives, the war finally starts and you hope to see what happens to them all. You do not. There is one final scene which seems completely disconnected to the entire book, and then it ends.
