This was really kooky and absurd, but had enough sci-fi and gang tension to keep me going to the end. I think this author should revise this story and really pump up the plotline because there is lots of potential here.

Totally absurd. I read this a long time ago and finally getting around to posting a review. What I remember was this is a total high tech sci-fi fantasy set in near future LA with surf gangs. I kept reading because I wanted to see how outlandish it would get.

Dramma assurdo che coinvolge squali. Non è necessario capire perché la logica è assente. Godetevi e apprezzate per il pieno senso dell'umorismo. Io con l'autore di applicare la sua abilità ad un tema più grande.

I've had this story on my phone for months. I started reading it several times and each time I stopped because it seems so goofy and not plausable. Then I started reading it again, and pushed through. I was very surprised how after I persisted, this story really was good. It has it's own internal reality. Sometimes you just have to give a book a chance to get going. It was weird, kooky, sci-fi and very funny.

Original idea, The shark riding and all is well done. But I had issues with the plot, Assuming the locals knew of the event, the intruders should have know about the locals, it just did not feel right.

This story freaked me out. Insane sense of creative imagination. Very original at least to me.

Review by: Malcolm Torres on June 26, 2016 :
This story combines all my favorite elements (sea story, sci-fi, crime and humor). The author handles the material well and puts the reader on the back of a 'lab-grown' shark, wearing adaptive gills all while patrolling gang 'turf' off the coast. When drug smugglers show up, the conflict begins. More, please, more!
