Static Push (ooh, I know what that means now) is a great science fiction novel. In fact, I do believe it is the best science fiction I’ve read without a cute robot in it.
Although it took a little time for me to get into this, once I got my brain into sci-fi geek mode, each time I picked this book up, I found it very hard to put down, as I was eager to find out what was going to happen next.
Static Push is a story of curiosity, loss, fear, teamwork, survival and hope. Some parts are rather emotional and had me trying to hold back the tears. On the other hand, there are some funny parts too. Reference to the red suit had me laughing so much, I even forgot for a moment how scary I find space. There are a couple of situations where the words “A bit” had me giggling away to myself too. Definitely a good balance of British humour within a very intriguing plot.
I thought the main storyline was a fascinating idea, and has had me looking up at the sky with suspicion. The story is well structured, has a good pace and is well edited. There are also some interesting and fun characters in this book, who are very easy to like.
This is the first book in the series. I was comfortable with the ending, but at the same time, very intrigued to see what happens next.
I strongly recommend this to any science fiction fans.
I would like to thank the author for a copy of this book, via THE Book Club (TBC) on Facebook, in exchange for an honest review, and wish him great success with this book.
