Download À The Rig AUTHOR Roger Levy 104 Le a disillusioned policeman on the planet Bleak is brutally attacked leading writer Raisa on to a story spanning centuries of corruption On G. The opening chapter of this book was amazing and would have made a stunning short story on its own Then the rest of the book happened It is clear that that Levy is attempting to write a story full of big ideas which he mostly succeeds at doing Unfortunately the story itself is plodding juvenile and populated with characters that are largely unsympathetic By half way through the book I was bored and ended up reading two other books before finely finishing this one up Honestly I m not sure that it was worth the effort to do so Having a whole lot of stupid made up words for common things like putery for computer visky for whisky screenery for screen chittlechattle for chit chat and godery for religion that were used relentlessly didn t help mattersThe world created by Levy is hard to swallow On the one hand we have a space faring culture with faster than light speed travel the ability to put humans into stasis indefinitely and something called doubling which involves seizing control of someone else s body and mind On the other hand we have an inability to control cancer that leaves the average human s life expectancy across all planets at 50 apparently nano biotech which is being researched today isn t even an idea computers that sound like they were manufactured during the 20th century and humans doing incredibly dangerous jobs because apparently robots aren t up to the task The concept of Afterlife in which members vote on who should be brought back from the brink of death when a cure for their ailment is discovered is intriguing However the world that surrounds this story is less so At the heart of the story are two criminals who are locked into an almost cartoonish Spy v Spy rivalry We are given to believe that a confederation composed of some fairly large but unspecified number of planets is effectively ruled by just two self made men who through dint of their own cunning largely control the entire universe s economy This is flat out ridiculous on its face Little detail is given how they manage this except some vague examples of mathematical models and ruthless actions Game of Thrones this ain t One of the central characters is Alef Oh the first letter of the Hebrew alphabet deep man a mathematical genus and emotional cripple who is largely responsible for the success one of the evil guy s empire Like most of the characters he is totally unsympathetic Apparently in possession of zero agency Alef mechanically assists Dr Evil number 1 with his sociopathic methods of expanding his empire Not once does he ever consider leaving I think we are expected to feel sorry for his situation but I didn t This was particularly problematic because the final big reveal turns upon his actionsI found myself interested in the murder mystery that revolved around a reporter a mechanic and police officer Sadly the resolution to their story was a big fat nothing burger The convoluted series of events that are detailed turned out to be entirely beside the point even though the author seems to think they were all part of some diabolical plan Spoiler view spoilerI was particularly put out that my favorite character s death was completely pointless There is a whole lot of obtuse cloak and dagger stuff that leads up to it and then poof dead and it might as well have been a red herring for all the difference it made Also the ending left me wanting The incurable cancers that plagued all of humanity never made much sense unless they were all engineered so I say go big or go home Alef should have been the one that created them and sentenced an entire galaxy to premature deaths in order to have a reason for Afterlife just so he could save one person Yeah Alef would totally have done that Did the author think that would make he too unlikable because he was already that unlikable hide spoiler

Strange Horizons has called Roger Levy the heir to Philip K Dick That s a pretty tall order for an author to live up to eh I typically dislike when two authors are compared to each other because I rarely see enough similarities to even recognize that a comparison has been made Well as it happens it s not far from truth I found Roger Levy s writing style to be refreshingly gloomy blunt and to the point I believe the comparison to Philip K Dick to be right on the moneyThe premise of the story is uniue and I imagine that s one reason why Levy has been compared to Philip K Dick Roger Levy spins his tale with a handle on the English language unlike most He creates characters that are both believable and uniue but the ways in which he presents their stories is never lacking any of the elements reuired for entertainment and thought If there are any science fiction book clubs looking for a good read this week I think The Rig is worthy of a mention but with a warning You will ask yourself an awful lot of uestions when you read this book and some of them may have answers you re not ready for But be that as it may read it anywayWithout hitting my blog readers with a ton of spoilers I will say that I can confidently give my recommendation to The Rig and I look forward to finding titles from Roger Levy in the future
