Hominine – it’s time to choose: by Lewis Evans
A young Israeli student who has a fetish for Violent porn comes across a strange video on the Internet. His interest is piqued and forwards the video to his Friend. This inadvertently triggers a motion of events.
Troy King spends his days pushing paper for a government intelligence agency. Loaded by his personal failures, he is full of life when he comes across the video and CIA’s interest in the video. He owes to get to the bottom of it.
Tech savvy David Arbuthnot moves from England to the US with his wife and young son to work as an Internet/social media expert. Only the job is nothing related to Social Media and he finds himself travelling to Afganistan, sees his colleague shot dead and is left to fight for everything including his sanity.
US Special Negotiator for Middle East Affairs, Senator Griffin Kirkland, thinks he has it made, until a bizarre incident with the President changes everything. Confused he turns to his friend who is suddenly absconding. A series of clues lead him to Bali where he rediscovers his life along with his wife.
And then you have the mysterious Weatherman who holds them all together in a mysterious way. no one knows who he is but you also know he is the controlling factor of the whole novel.
And that is the 4 central plots that ties the novel together. Lewis Evans provides you with a nail gripping alternative, what-if situation filled with Technology and Philosophy. At times, the story becomes bit tedious and going no-where. Especially the dialogues between Kirkland his friend tend to go over board and over your head.
Thriller – yes, Page turner – I don’t think so. Every Character is the novel has a dying marriage or struggling for love. I don’t know why? Definitely this is not a book to curl up and read on a rainy day.
