The Odyssey Effect || Book Review.

Hello people, how are you all doing??? How is your life going??? What’s your progress in reading??? See a reader’s life always roams around books and they just think about books. The same applies to me. I know you all must be thinking, “damn she is blogging too much again!!!” Yes, I am, I thought that it is better to concentrate on my blog than on dramas and problems in life. I am trying my best to blog as much as I can and hope that works out well because usually, it doesn’t😏😏. So on this hopeless note, let’s start this review, shall we???

I am an idiot and I accept the fact because I had to review this book 2 months back but due to my aunt and sister’s death, I couldn’t and after that, I forgot about this book totally. The author might be reading this review so I would like to apologize for my irresponsibility and the delay. I read this book about 2 months back and I had the review drafted but I had no time to post the review and today when I do, I would like to dive into it, so let’s jump in, people.

•Official Summary:

In the year 2127 on a planet one hundred thousand light years away a race of artificial human’s labor to supply Earth with the miracle ore Dycornum. Then an anomalous quirk occurred in the maturation process and sentient artificials were born. Now free from the supercomputer that governed their every thought, they followed their natural inclination and came to Earth to be a part of humanities utopian society.

Detective Dexter Ruyac, like everyone else on Earth, envisioned the artificals as advertised by the government to be drones – biological machines; so far removed from mankind they did not even have souls. He was startled to discover that the anomaly of a sentient artificial he had found was just one of many. One presidential official of the global government the World Court deemed them as an industrial accident and a threat to the social order of Earth; knowledge of these intelligent artificials should not reach the public. This officer of the Court formed a black operation group of cybernetic hunter killers to eliminate them. Dexter’s social pledge as a policeman to protect and serve has extended to these immigrants of mankind from across the stars but he is running out of time to find them first.

•My Review.

This book had me in splits if I am, to be honest. 2127, conceptualized in the future, the story has the feel of pure sci-fi with mystery as it follows a tough police detective who tries to solve a string of murders in the rebuilt city of New Chicago. Pursuing a lead of an interstellar smuggling ring, he finds himself sucked thick in plot between classes of society secret to the peaceful citizens of the reconstructed world.

I really loved how the story was very different but at the same time really easy to read. Being a Sci-fi I was worried it would go over my mind but that was not the case, fortunately. Usually, sci-fi goes over people’s minds and we end up hating the book but here the case was different. I was really intrigued by how the author mixed science with mystery and made the book totally different from the others.

The characters were developed so well and the writing was so magnificent. It was smooth with no grammatical errors. The side (Secondary) characters were well-developed and this exact point made the book better in all ways. The book was not over descriptive but still, the complexities of humanity and their emotions were shown so clearly in the book. The science was not too over the board and it was also explained nicely.

Being a sci-fi, for me, the author managed to maintain the genre while keeping it as simple as possible but some points made me feel like this book needed a little more description like the dead zones and the Chernobyl disaster needed some more description and it would have added a thrill in the book for me. I also felt the book was a bit more plot and action-driven than needed and that made me lose a little interest in the book.

Overall this book is a great read for any new Sci-fi reader and sci-fi lovers too, it has a great plot, clean and smooth writing, and a proper amount of suspense mixed with enough science. A perfect novel for anyone who needs something different to read.

So that’s it for today. I hope you loved this review. I will be back soon with one more review and hope you all are safe and sound. Take care and see you soon, until then…

  1. It sounds quite familiar in some ways, as ‘sentient androids’ has been a favourite plot for decades. That said, I am happy to see you give it four stars, Suzan.
    Best wishes, Pete. xx
