Review: The One Percenters by John Podgursky

3 Stars
Pages: 185
In this book we meet Edward Caine, a man who has lost his everything-- his wife, Jill.

This basically send him into a downward spiral, a low in his life. When he hits the bottom though, he doesn't lose all hope, he takes his rightful place in the world. As a One Percenter. One of the few people that rids the world of the weak-gened, one of the few who will balance out the world. His first act, killing his friend and lover. I found this strange, and shocking though I don't know why. I liked the book none the less, especially as I read more.

The book progresses very nicely and the author really brings Edward to life, so much that if I didn't know better I would say this is based on something true. The ending really took me by surprise, as I think it will most people, and really brings the book to a nice close that would have been other wise to abrupt if it would have just ended when he got caught.

Some of the authors lines are almost like poetry, and to me the writing kind of reminded me of Edgar Allan Poe. Who I have always been a big fan of. Through that I feel I can really connect to the writing.

One of the reasons I gave it three stars despite liking it so much, was the very odd POV. It took some getting used to as I don't think I have ever read a book that I felt like they were talking to me or at me and took me into someone else head.

That's what it felt like to me. That, Edward is saying the words that pop into his head, in that order. He will be talking about something, then, he will pick up on something else but it's not really random because in a weird way it did have to do with the part before. 

After getting used to this the book does take off pretty well, though confusing at times I think the author may have meant it to be that way. Also I have to say I love the cover its almost ethereal (to me) and mysterious, and in a weird way I find it beautiful.

I would definitely recommend to horror fans, yes, you Stephen King fans, Edgar Allan Poe fans, ect. This is something you will not want to miss.

*I received an Ebook copy of this book for free to review from the author.
