From time to time I am sent for approval by a review that piques my interest in a book I have never noticed before.
I recently got this in my inbox. It came from an anonymous critic. I suspect the reviewer is actually the author, but the review has aroused my interest, so I publish it here.
While in China, I saw a huge poster and advertisement, except for “BEAST IN PARADISE” by Jess Simlar.
Almost everyone I meet reads, reads or talks about the book. The book is elegant, high-tech, realistic and extremely visual. It takes place in the near future, but painstakingly progresses in the journey between the past, present and the future.
The story is told in the first person through the eyes of the main and main character Dr. Jerome Hendrix. Traveling the world of Dr. Hendrix, a man discovers that the treatment of his patients with a deadly disease called symbiotic syndrome, caused by the improper use of a prohibited symbiotic chip.
His research shows that this deadly and addictive chip is based on ancient science, which allowed early alchemists to use more than 90% of their minds to do incredible things. Hendricks didn’t take long to discover that the chips were being distributed illegally through a powerful conspiracy.
The stakes are high, and only members of a secret society known as the Sef Apprentices can interpret camouflaged messages that can neutralize the mental effects of chips.
This prompts Hendrix to write a bestseller about it, describing symbiotic psychology as a cure for symbiotic rejection. As a result, he becomes a threat to Eric Krill, a wealthy businessman who wants to distribute symbiotic chips to manage powerful people.
To stop Kryl, Hendrix enlisted the help of Dr. Deborah Hilter, a biotechnology expert and member of Sef’s Apprentices. Together, they develop a plan and embark on a mission to prevent the illegal mass distribution of symbionic chips around the world.
Since the book is written in the first person, it creates an exciting effect based on a series of hints and clarity that engages the senses and retains the reader’s interest and desire to move forward to find out what the end result will be.
Another reason for posting this message is to remind yourself that you will get a quarter of a point ($0.25) for each recall published.
If I were posting reviews instead of blogging, I would have done enough to buy a few new books.
