I read the short 2032- 7 Days by this author as a prelude to this & I have to say that I think that really worked out for the best. It gave me a taste of the format & a glimpse of the world of 2032. The story is told in fifty short stories/vignettes from the perspective of as many different people. It's a broad look at a society that is everything from farcical to downright horrific but throughout is quite interesting. When trying to review the whole there really is no way to explain it in usual ...more

2032 lays out a world that is near enough in the future that it is a little scary. The author’s insights into politics are hilarious, and a bit disturbing when you think of how easily some of the events could really happen.

I have to say that the best part of the book, for me, was the author’s brilliant, vivid, and detailed imagination. He has laid out a world in amazing detail that is difficult to find in novels of recent years. I was drawn into the world and could see it in such detail that I

The only problem I have with reviewing a book as audaciously ambitious as 2032, is knowing where to start. I purchased this book on the back of the enjoyment I derived from the author's novella Camel On An Ashtray (the two books could not be more different yet they are both thoroughly engaging reads).

The protagonist (or should I say antagonist) of this book is the Sector, a sprawling metropolis which has been replicated all over the world and is now the only living space that exists. By focusin

This book is quite different from many. For starters, it's made up of what I consider to be short stories. The book is about earth in 2032 and how we as a society live. Basically what the author does is he tells us what it's like from many different character perspectives. Some of these stories connect, most of them don't. So imagine one perspective of life in this new world coming from a scientist. Then the next coming from a person who is simply people watching in public or from someone who is ...more

Shelves: abandoned
I found it very hard to finish this and in fact I left it at two thirds read. There were so many different short stories within the book, that I found it difficult to find the enthusiasm to read to the end to discover the result. Maybe if there had been five r six separate characters/short stories, intwined then I could have got a better grip of the plot and actually felt some sort of connection with characters, but each chapter was describing a point of view from a completely different person a ...more

The good: Nice world. Interesting ideas about a near future.

The bad: Where to start. Maybe with an editor? I found a lot of typos and other mistakes. As for plot, there really was none. Nothing connected to anything else for most of the 'book.'

The ugly: this is the type of book that gives indies a bad name. Thankfully I haven't run across many as poorly edited and incoherent as this one. Just skip this or it might make you hate indies altogether.

This book was so badly edited that wading through it was a chore. Much of the book made no sense. Characters appeared, disappeared, were labeled only by initials, stories didn't line up. I could almost see what the author was trying to do...but it didn't work, sadly. ...more
