Roger Levy ä 1 SUMMARY

SUMMARY Á The Rig By Roger Levy Humanity has spread across the depths of space but is connected by AfterLife a vote made by every member of humanity on the worth of a life Ba. Originally published at RisingshadowRoger Levy s The Rig is one of the finest British science fiction novels ever published This outstanding novel is way above average science fiction because the story gradually develops from an intriguing premise into a fascinating tale filled with complexity weirdness and thought provoking elements that make readers hold their breath in wonder This novel was very much to my liking because it s boldly different and wholly originalTo be honest this novel is truly impressive due to it being unlike any other modern science fiction novels It s a satisfyingly complex exploration of humanity immortality religion culture and social media from an insightful and slightly twisted perspective It s a tour de force of powerful and immersive storytelling with strong proseThe Rig is a deeply captivating and immersive reading experience because it s in eual terms literary speculative fiction noir fiction mystery fiction and space opera with a touch of experimental science fiction The uniue combination of various genres makes for a highly enjoyable read One might easily think that it s not possible to combine these genres but the author has succeeded in it and has managed to create a novel that stands outI think it s good to mention that The Rig is not for readers who want instant gratification from their novels because the author lets the story unfold at its own pace It s not an easy novel because it has been written for those who want to immerse themselves in a complex and intricate story I m sure that it will please uality oriented readers who appreciate intricate storytellingHere s a bit of information the story and some of the characters In this novel humans have spread across the depths of space and people are connected by the social media platform AfterLife All humans are implanted with neurids that capture their essences and allow for a resurrection at a later date AfterLife unites the System in a profoundly effective way and has replaced religion When AfterLife s subscribers vote in the Afterlife the votes determine which subscribers have a chance at resurrection Internet has developed into the Song Alef Selsior lives on the planet Gehenna and becomes friends with the psychopathic Pellonhorc Pellonhorc is the son of the crime lord Ethan Drame and is tight lipped about his past Alef s life is followed through SigEvs which are significant events connected to the AfterLife Tallen is an engineer who lives on the border planet Bleak His life changes when he wakes up in a hospital He decides to become a rig operator Razer is a writer who is looking for stories on Bleak She works for TruTales which is one of the ParaSites of AfterLife She comes upon a string of killings Bale is a police officer on the planet Bleak He has had a brief affair with Razer The crime lord Ethan Drame and his rival Spetkin Ligate bring a strong touch of mafia style elements and striking harshness to the storyThe characterisation is excellent and engaging It was a pleasure to read about the characters because the author takes his time to introduce their lives and tells of their feelings in an effective way Each of the main characters is fully three dimensional and realisticAlef is an especially intriguing protagonist because he is a talented and intelligent boy There s something about his character that reminds me of people who have Asperger s syndrome because he thinks in numbers and has difficulties to empathise with othersThe friendship between Alef and Pellonhorc is one of the main reasons why I enjoyed this novel because the author writes well about their friendship and what happens between them The arrival of Pellonhorc changes Alef s life in many ways They re are an odd pair of boys whose friendship will change the SystemThe worldbuilding is fascinating and very impressive The author has created a stunning vision of humanity s future because humans have moved to another solar system to live on terraformed planets due to a catastrophe The System consists of seven major planets and a few minor onesGehenna is a deeply religious planet where godly writ is followed by all of its inhabitants The inhabitants are religious fundamentalists who believe in living pure lives Bleak is a windswept planet where life is harsh The landscape on Bleak is dominated by enormous rigs that are used to extract the planet s molten core There s also an unsaid planet that is an enigma to all because it has retreated into protected seclusion and there s an asteroid known as PecoRoger Levy s cultural and social media critiue is thrillingly sharp and stinging without being preaching overbearing or annoying In my opinion he has managed to create a perfect vision of futuristic social media that has come to dominate people s lives What makes his vision especially fascinating and frightening is that something similar could actually happen in real life due to many people spending too much time playing with social media and numbing their minds with mindless follyThis novel has a few memorable scenes that are intriguingly unsettling As an example I can mention that the fate of the Amadeus Arkestra at the beginning of this novel is disturbing and memorable It perfectly demonstrates what religious frenzy can be at its most ferventI was surprised to find amusing and intelligent puns in this novel because I didn t expect them It s great that the author uses English and linguistics to his advantage and warps English words into new format to suit his needs He uses among other things such words as Babbel goddery husman screenery and puter the meanings of which will open to readers during the storyThis novel raises many uestions and makes readers think about what is going on and what will happen in the story When the story begins readers are gradually introduced to the characters and the places After a while the various bits and pieces begin to fit together and readers will find themselves completely immersed by the storyRoger Levy writes excellent prose because his literary prose is beautiful layered and memorable Describing his prose is a bit difficult due to him having his own writing style but his prose feels like a combination of Philip K Dick Christopher Priest Nina Allan Ren Warom Gene Wolfe and David Mitchell if you ve ever read anything by these authors you ll find yourself at home with the proseRoger Levy s The Rig is intense and thought provoking speculative fiction at its utmost best and most imaginative This novel has been written for thinking adults and to those who want depth from their science fiction novels If you enjoy reading intelligent and original science fiction this novel is mandatory reading material for you because it s outstanding in every respectHighly recommended Pnin life Ba.

Before I start my review let me note that I received an uncorrected bound proof of this book from Titan Books However all opinions contained herein are my ownAt 615 pages this is not a book to dive into lightly While I occasionally found myself rooting for one or another of the characters all are pretty flawed None are wholly likable but there are books where that happens and it s never been a deal breaker for meThe book starts slowly establishing the friendship between the two main characters and the world they are living on It s not a pretty society either because it follows a pretty rigid interpretation of the Bible At any rate the story follows the two characters and several other plotlines One thing that kept me reading in fact was waiting to see how Mr Levy was going to tie all the different stories together And when he finally did so it was only partially in ways I had expectedFor all that the book is well written and once I had gotten past the slowness at the beginning I didn t want to put it down not for dinner not for some work I needed to do not even to go to bedIt s doesn t fit neatly into military SF or horror but I think it will appeal to readers thereof It was definitely worth the time and effort to read it Dear Jane last an epoc.
