Publisher's Summary

In this, John David Krygelski's third and perhaps most powerful novel to date, he creates a spine-tingling story of suspense, drama, and intrigue. After the only child of the President commits suicide, President Walker proposes an institution where people who have lost all hope may enter. Aegis, intended to be a civilized alternative to suicide, is built and opened.

There are only two rules in Aegis: No communication is allowed between the outside world and those who enter, and once individuals go in...they can never leave. With the absence of any staff, Aegis is ruled by anarchy and the entrants must create a new society.Twelve years pass and what began as a noble social experiment has turned into a hideous nightmare, fraught with controversy and public outrage.

In response, Elias Charon is selected by the new President to be the first to enter Aegis and be allowed to leave. Ostensibly sent in to investigate the claims of abuse, a darker and heinous personal motive arises. With pulse-pounding suspense, The Aegis Solution takes the reader through a twisting, turning plot to an explosive and electrifying climax.

    "Narrator so awful I couldn't finish the book"
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    I can't imagine.


    Would you be willing to try another book from John David Krygelski? Why or why not?

    Yes, I may have liked the book read by a different narrator.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    This book was filled with long drawn out philosophical discussions between characters. These conversations are unbearable to listen to when the narrator uses the exact same voice with absolutely NO changes between characters - male, female, gangster, etc., they all have the same voice and tone. Very difficult to follow in long conversations. I couldn't keep track of who was talking. More than 10 hours into the book, I simply gave up.


    What character would you cut from The Aegis Solution?

    None.

    "Not the book I thought it would be"

    This is a book with many plot turns and mysteries revealed. I must admit I did not expect the direction the book took. The plot moved quickly and the characters were very interesting and made me care about what happened. The only thing that prevented this from being a 3 or 4 star book was the numerous technical problems with the entire Aegis complex. It just keep breaking me out of the plot when the author would just ignore the serious problems with the logistics and engineering of the Aegis complex. The idea that the government would just allow thousands of people to enter a complex like Aegis with no medical care, no food distribution, no repair and maintenance staff. And on top of that leave all the mechanical spaces open the general population (even allow them onto the roof) and then just hope everything goes ok was difficult to accept. I just had to stop trying to make sense of all those plot holes to enjoy the book.

    "Good idea but tails off"
    What did you like best about The Aegis Solution? What did you like least?

    John Krygelski always has some good and original ideas but his books have a tendency towards too much exposition and often smugness. I always feel his books would benefit from some more editing.


    Would you be willing to try another book from John David Krygelski? Why or why not?

    Yes, always original.
