's review

it was ok
bookshelves: english-21st-c, sci-fi, novels, fiction, dystopian

Original ideas but pulp fiction in terms of writing. Maybe reading PKD and Cixin Liu has spoiled me, but I did not find this sci fi story convincing. There were too many moments that were written like a cheap screenplay, "the emperor would be dead in 24 hours!" and yet it is actually three days later. Sorry, I know, no spoilers but this book is so irredeemably predictable that if you don't see that coming, you need to stop watching Fox&Friends because your brain is turning into oatmeal. The love interests are stuff and vapid as is the protagonist. Not my cup of tea by a longshot.

The Reading Bibliophile Forget Ben Elton, very bad writer. I read Inconceivable and I don't understand how this guy gets published.
