Everyone wants something from him, but all he wants is to be free…. This world is split off from ours at , says Morden in an interview in the back of the first book. I love books that consider alternate histories. What are the possibilities of those choices? I know Doctor Who did a whole bunch of episodes about that in season 4 some of the best of that season, and that season was pretty awesome.
But if you like cyberpunk, math, thrillers, dystopia all in one insane mix, these books are so definitely for you. This means everything — from his stuttering heart in the first book, to his broken heart over Maddy by the third book. You see, think, feel, smell, touch everything he does. I tip my hat in major respect for him being able to do that. But you know what?
And the best part? But totally brilliant. I remember going to see Usual Suspects at the cinema. I had no idea of what the film was about before I went in. Looking at the poster, it looked like a poor comedy of some description — a police lineup with 5 misfits staring out at the camera. The only saving grace was that Pete Postlewaite was in it. However, the film was amazing and firmly in my top 10 films of all time.
Yet I have often wondered how much of the positive feeling was in part due to the low expectations I went in with. Equations of Life by Simon Morden was a similar experience for me. We often have a coffee at the back of church on a Sunday morning.
There was no room in that box for author of science fiction and cyber punk novels. Until now. The novel is set in and the world as we know it is still reeling from an almost Armageddon some 20 years before. We meet Petrovitch as he enters the world of the Metrozone — a city of 25 million that has fence around it that keeps the Outies at bay. Petrovitch has been hiding in the Metrozone for several years since he freed himself from the Russian mafia in St Petersburg.
