I had a chance to read an early version of this book, and I've got to say, I really liked it! A great sci-fi, fast paced with very interesting ideas! The characters feel real and are very complex! Fans of the genre won't be disappointed. ...more

Reading this book is your ticket to another world. You will be able to explore its layers, its technology and the characters who live there. From the start, you will wonder where Detel has gone, the identity of the secret leading to her downfall and whether her brother, Artenz, and his wife, Keidi, will be able to escape the forces that brought Detel to her knees. This book will draw you in. You will love the code-speak, the intricacy of the technology, the time/ date markers and the characters. ...more

I had a chance to read an advanced copy of this book. Interesting book. Great read. The author took a lot of time in crafting the plot, and it shows. Page after page has details about the world, and by the time you finish, you feel totally immersed.

When it comes to reading or watching films, I’m a big picture person. I’m not a plot revealing person. I read some reviews, and people give away too much. Leave something for the reader to read! With that noted, I found the overall theme of the book t

Eston is a unique and talented storyteller and he continues with his newest venture into science fiction – Deficiency. Without giving too much away, the author takes us into a whole new world. Eston writes in tight, descriptive prose. No wasted words. Deficiency is a fast-paced novel full of futuristic ideas and protagonists, colorful characters and a great plot and a satisfying ending. If you are into sci-fi or just a fine story, this novel is for you. It didn’t let me down.

Deficiency is a great, wild read through a world that ours seems to be mirroring a little bit more everyday. Give Facebook and Google 100 years and this may no longer be fiction! The main character, Artenz, was good but my favorite was his tech holdout spouse, Keidi. The cast of characters fighting the system are some I hope we have looking out for us all someday. The author also lays out some impressive imagery that would fit in Elysium or Bladerunner. Definitely one to check out!

This is the 1st book I've read written by S.C. Eston; she has done a great job at writing a good book; I can’t wait to read more of her books.

The story line caught my attention at the very beginning and kept me interested throughout the entire book.

I received a free copy of this book via booksprout and I’m voluntarily leaving a review.
