"Wade Garret's Genesis: Book One of the Kingdom Come is one of the most
epic sci-fi books I've read this year. The characters are so realistic
that they almost feel tangible. Although I feel that the dialogue can be
improved (I think it's just me not being used to dialogue written like
this), the characters' personalities are something I can actually
associate with, which is great.
Though the novel is quite long,
Garret's talent made me flip through my e-reader like a steam engine,
almost non-stop, and I finished the book in a few days. However, the
prologue with Black didn’t really catch my attention as much as the
actual first chapter did, but I’m pretty glad that I didn’t drop the
novel as the chapters after the prologue makes up for it.
each scene painted in full colours and vividness, I can imagine each
event happening in my head. If you like books with great detail, you
will like how Garret explained his world from how the buildings line up
on the road to how some characters choose to wear their clothing.
though I'm not usually a fan of past tense and third-person in writing,
I was still astounded by the amount of detail and effort put in the
making of this novel. The different point of views of the characters
were confusing at first, when views switched from character to
character, but I got used to it, and truth be told, I actually liked it.
in all, this is one novel sci-fi fans shouldn't miss. Thanks Garret for
sharing your story with us and I'm looking forward to the second book."
