Deathloop by Gil Brailey
The characters are well constructed and described, so much that you can see them in your mind. The story itself will certainly draw you in and it may confuse you once or twice, or more, but just keep reading, you will catch on;)
Zach's character is a bit unnerving, although, you have to have a little bit of compassion for the guy. He really isn't all that bad, however, he does treat women a little wicked. (well he isn't the only one in the world). Even still, he does play an interesting part in this book, terribly mysterious and as much as you want to hate him, you can't.
I thought this was an odd book, in a good way, definitely wasn't mainstream, or something you may see, "Everybody reading at the beach" or "Everybody running to the bookstore for". I think they should though, it is an unusual book, and that is what makes this story so superb!
It reminds me of the type of book that will have it's own following, like certain bands, and those "out of the ordinary" type, books, movies, cult like genres. I would be one of them for this book, especially if there were more of these like from a series, or books written by this author, along the same lines.
It was unusual in the sense that I find people and their minds, intriguing. To have such an imagination, to conjure up a story that is so twisted and crazy and make it an easy book to read, fairly paced action, certainly enough to keep you interested, is a definite asset. (Especially in today's society where things don't seem as accepted or welcomed as they used too) I admire this when I read a book from an author that has some insanity trapped in there.
That is why I love books so much, they still seem to be for the most part, uncensored. Unlike music and movies and well, people's opinions.
The story does start out from another part of the story, so be prepared to be a little confused, but it is pretty obvious after you read it. (A lot of movies do this too and I always think it just adds to the twisted plot and adds a star:)
I wouldn't really know where to classify this, I know we have to have "genres" in a sense, but there should be an "unknown, crazy but worth your time" section. (and possibly a "unknown, not so crazy, waste of time" section, lol. This book, I would put in the worth your time group, because it is. It won't leave you bored, sure won't make you that confused, and it will keep you guessing, thinking and at the end, pretty explosive stuff there. Certainly not what I expected!
It does have some past life stuff, so I would guess if you are a non believer, that may disappoint you, but uh, that's what the story is kind of about! It also has a little swearing, not a lot, not a bunch of sex, and not any jumping around. It is written very strategically and offers a few hours of pure enjoyment!
