The Continuance Agency

The Continuance Agency - Adam   Light What a great read! Post-apocalyptic fiction without a single utterance of the Z-word: can it be true? Who's to say it will last as the rest of this dystopian saga unfolds, but [b:THE CONTINUANCE AGENCY|16439811|THE CONTINUANCE AGENCY (The Continuance Saga Volume One)|Adam Light|http://d202m5krfqbpi5.cloudfront.net/books/1355284037s/16439811.jpg|22628079] quickly pulled me into its intriguing world.

Full disclosure: [a:Adam Light|5822521|Adam Light|http://d202m5krfqbpi5.cloudfront.net/authors/1358810611p2/5822521.jpg] is my brother as well as my frequent writing collaborator, so I may be predisposed to like what he writes. But having that relationship with him also means that I get a close-up look at the meticulous craftsmanship of his writing process, and let me tell you - if something's not ready or not working, he doesn't publish it.

Every work [a:Adam Light|5822521|Adam Light|http://d202m5krfqbpi5.cloudfront.net/authors/1358810611p2/5822521.jpg] releases always finds a new way to delight the reader in me, and [b:THE CONTINUANCE AGENCY|16439811|THE CONTINUANCE AGENCY (The Continuance Saga Volume One)|Adam Light|http://d202m5krfqbpi5.cloudfront.net/books/1355284037s/16439811.jpg|22628079] is no exception. Underneath the bleak exterior of this tale I sense a Terry Gilliam-like sense of whimsy, reminiscent of 12 MONKEYS or BRAZIL, as though maybe things aren't really as they may seem at first glance.

[a:Adam Light|5822521|Adam Light|http://d202m5krfqbpi5.cloudfront.net/authors/1358810611p2/5822521.jpg] tells amazingly creative stories in an incredibly unique way, tales that usually start in a familiar place before taking the reader somewhere they never dreamed existed. My only disappointment with [b:THE CONTINUANCE AGENCY|16439811|THE CONTINUANCE AGENCY (The Continuance Saga Volume One)|Adam Light|http://d202m5krfqbpi5.cloudfront.net/books/1355284037s/16439811.jpg|22628079] was when I reached the end - I wasn't ready for it to be over!

A solid 4-Star rating.
