About Julien Boyer

Je suis un geek néo-nomade. Si vous vous imaginez un boutonneux à lunettes sur un chameau cybernétique, vous n'y êtes pas du tout. Mais kudos pour votre imagination.

Je traverse les contrées de cette petite planète le pouce en l'air et un ordinateur en poche. Quand on aura colonisé Mars, j'irais y faire du stop et y écrire des romans.

Je m'arrête de temps en temps. Vous me trouverez alors vissé dans un ordinateur, en train d'écrire mon prochain roman, de bénévoler pour une alternative quelconque ou d'organiser la révolution.

J'ai beaucoup d'imagination. C'est ma force et mon calvaire. Parce que d'un coté ça me permet d'écrire de bonnes histoires. Mais de l'autre, j'ai l'impression de vivre dans le passé. Le futur m'intéresse au plus haut point et j'ai hâte qu'on y soit. En attendant, je ronge mon frein.

Review by: JQDahiya on Jan. 29, 2019 :
Four stars. (I really liked it and recommend it!)

This is a cute piece of space opera, fast paced, with humour and a sly take on all kinds of tropes. The protagonist emerges as an... unexpected... person, very delightful. The trusty AI sidekick is well done, too. The end is deadpan not-so-happy-ending that made me laugh.

I was fully prepared to roll my eyes at laser beams lighting up the interstellar medium, spaceships that whiz between Mars, Earth and Moon within hours, but the author thankfully assures us these are artistic liberties. As long as there is no dodging between asteroids, I'm good.

Read it. It's fun.

Review by: Squifi McDougall on Oct. 6, 2015 :
A good opener and highly stunning afternoon read leaving the reader in want for more.

Great gateway drug! Need to read more of this protagonist(see if you get the twist), and the AI sidekick.
Had to re-read it to catch all the density of this amazing tale and the links to actual current events.

This book can be seen as an introduction to seemingly similar colourful characters as in sci-fi epics like Star Trek, Star Wars or even Dune or Starship troopers.

We want more!
