Review by: Thomas Hardt on Feb. 06, 2012 :
Insensate is an amazing work for a first-time author. The genre of Science Fiction is all too easily belittled as the illogical rantings of escapists who cannot string a conclusive sentence together. Not so here. The storyline is logical and not so far removed from reality that the reader could not associate with the protagonists (the connection to our own planet Earth certainly helps).
The book is written with a keen eye for the English language and contains plenty of linguistic "treats" for readers who like to see "correct English applied properly" in this world of text messages and newspapers that save on proofreading. I was unable to stop grins bursting out on my face even in sequences of tension when confronted with phrases like "He was[...]smirking over her impotence,[...]before he strode over and asserted his masculince dominance over all things mechanical."
But speaking of tension: it is extremely refreshing to read a book, which manages to maintain suspense from start to finish, without having to resort to far-fetched explanations that the reader had no chance of second-guessing for himself - if only he had read things more carefully and given the prolific hints more thought. Because of this, Insensate grows on the reader with the second reading, rather than leaving him feeling "I know what's going to happen next". Instead, the hints of things to come stand out and make you smile knowingly in anticipation of the grand finale.
And on the subject of grand finales, I would like to finish my recommendation of this superb read with the appeal to the author of carrying on where he left off and give us the second instalment of this gripping Utopia.
I have never enjoyed a book of this price level as much as I have this one. Insensate proves that "low price" is very different from "cheap".
Maybe I should buy another few copies just so I feel I've paid a price more in keeping with the quality of the produce.
