no meat, just adrenaline
I might have liked this book as a teen. The setting and the ideas in the book are good, but the author has a few problems. The main character, Dion, is too much a reflection of the author's ego. The other characters in the book have no real existence beyond Dion's subjective vision. This would be fine if the book was first person limited, instead of third person omniscient. My second issue is that the narration leaps from crisis to crisis. Sometimes the crisis is physical, sometimes emotional, but it the time spent between these dire events is so scant and so rushed that the author clearly finds the time spent writing it an annoying bother.
Finally, the reader has no connection with the story, which is not the reader's fault, but it still makes the narration painful.
The story is good, but the execution is unpalatable.
