No Man's Land Reviews
It is funny how I find myself obsessively following authors for what appear to be conflicting reasons. There are some whose books or series I keep on returning to because I know exactly what to expect and I need that comfort of familiarity. J.D. Robb is one such author for me.And then there are authors like Theo Fenraven, who I search out because I never know what he’ll present me with next. No book is exactly like any of the previous releases. He hops from genre to genre with an apparent ease that leaves me both awed and somewhat jealous. Opening a new book by this author is always an adventure because I won’t know what I’m dealing with until I’m well into the story, by which stage the characters and the storyline will invariably have captured me.In No Man’s Land, the author takes this trait of his one step further than he has done in the past. What I thought I was reading when the book started turned out not to be what this story was really about. I apologise for being vague, but discovering where this story was going was such a riveting and delightful surprise for me I don’t want to spoil that experience for anybody else. What can I say about the story? Well, it is fascinating and gripping right from the start. It features characters who will intrigue you, and not all of them are exactly human . And it brings us a tension-filled tale filled with both mystery and questions to ponder. In fact, while I loved this story and the way it was written at least as much as I’ve adored any of Theo Fenraven’s previous books, it was all the ‘what-if’s’ and ‘what-would-I-do’s’ it left me with that really hooked me.Because that’s the thing with this author’s books; while they invariable give me a good and riveting story, they also force me to think about bigger and very topical issues. Not that you need to reflect on the story-line and what it means in order to enjoy this story. It can, very successfully, be read as a thrilling speculative tale. But if you enjoy lingering and reflecting on what you’ve read after you’ve finished a book—as I do—this book will leave you fulfilled on both counts.Do yourself a huge favour and read No Man’s Land. Not only will you treat yourself to a fantastic story, which while not a romance does feature at least one love story, you will also find yourself pondering about the choices we make. And that’s before I even go into Theo Fenraven’s mastery of the English language, his carefully constructed sentences which paint detailed pictures without ever using a superfluous word. Enjoy! I know I did.
Normally when I review a book I talk about the plot a bit. I say situations that I loved or didn’t so that I can explain my emotions. Well, I can’t do that with No Man’s Land. I can’t because if I did that I’d inevitably give something away. This story is a labyrinth and you have to really be in it to get out of it.Theo Fenraven is an eclecticist in his writing. Each book is different. He has no steady pattern and because of that, you’re always pleasantly surprised.In No Man’s Land I wasn’t sure what to expect. Where would this story take me? How will I feel? I must say, Theo never stopped my brain from thinking. This story weaves around and when you think you’ve grasped it… BAM… you don’t. There’s suspense, frustration, and total wonder. This books keep you on your toes and your head constantly turning.Brilliant poetic writing. Memorable well-formed characters, descriptive places and situations.This isn’t a romance, there’s love, but that’s not the point or focus of No Man’s Land. Only when you read it will that become clear to you.This was a terrific read!
You always get a slightly different take on life with Theo Fenraven, often with an unusual twist in the tale. This one matches ghost hunters, aliens and AI.There is a nice amount of local info, making me use my research fingers to plot their routes alongside. I liked the ghost investigation and where it developed to. Also, liked that Cy became a better brother to Brian.The writing is perhaps a bit more relaxed, certainly making part one engaging and wizz along. And there are a few moral conundrums for the band of friends to think about.Part two moves into utopia and after their first foray, doesn't give much detail but leaves us with the hopeful ending it justly deserves.
