Book Review: Nios De Neon (El Cuento) by Michel Encinosa Fucategories: Books, science fiction
Author: Michel Encinosa Fu
Publisher: Letras Cubanos Editorial
DisapointingThis book is nothing but a poor imitation of Gibson's early work. It consists of the usual hard boiled topics mangled with overplayed laments of lame distopy. If it's not a heist, it's a hit or a scam, all in a vain attempt to shock us with a social misery which pales in comparison with current days. Lacks real grit or drama. Besides, the author is so scientifically challenged it's not even funny.
We are supposed to believe that a teen lowlife recognizes a "cutting edge advanced picochip" at sight -it has no markings- that future armor helmets have vision slots; that weather manipulation takes just a couple hours to achieve with exact results; that a whole inhabited region -whole USA east coast- would be, could be and should be deprived of rain; that a super duper tycoon could be slained by injecting nerve gas into his pet's belly, which was previously sent unguarded to the vet and was kidnapped along the way back; and a whole lot of nonsense like it. Not really, Encinosa. Get a high school education before you get started writing.
