Dark, humorous in places, an unhinged protagonist, and a pre-apocalypse story. I couldn't ask for more! Hugely enjoyable.

I am unsure whether the writing techniques employed in the careful crafting of this tale are part and parcel of this new author's personal writing style or if they have been specifically brought to bear here, I am, however, inclined to assume the latter. The somewhat staccato rhythms and clipped sentences create a sense of dissonance and unease which subtly induces a growing empathy with the strained mind of the protagonist.

In the protagonist Mr Carroll achieves the writer's holy grail of a

A "hero" without a single likeable trait, that would widely be accepted as dysfunctional and even from the own narrators point of view - clearly suffering from various mental disorders.

But despite the complete lack of sympathy I felt for the character he made a wonderful protagonist.

A clever and compelling novella. An anti hero who you begin to empathise with despite the obvious instances of psychological instability. I found this a real page turner as Stans plan begins to unfold in all it's shocking glory. An excellent read and highly recommended. I wonder if I was the only one to notice the Aliens reference...

An intelligent, dark story with an anti(?) hero who I drew me in, eager to see what he was going to do.
Strongly recommended.

Whenever I have nothing to read on my Kindle, I buy a random ebook, generally from Goodreads ads. My only criteria is I must know nothing about the book in advance except for the blurb in the ad, and it mustn't cost more than $2.

Stan is a techie geek working unobtrusively for a large company. He thinks he has to save the world from the mysterious Project Cassandra that will destroy it. It's not entirely clear how he knows this other than from his dreams.

Stan is entirely unlikable. He's paranoid
