"Exploratory fiction at its most powerful and intelligent, Maker will challenge and reward all those who have ever wanted to believe in almost anything." (Foreword Reviews)
"Literary fiction that transcends its genre." (Portland Book Review)
"Unique and altogether profound, reminiscent of Bradbury, haunting, thought-provoking and surprisingly philosophical." (San Francisco Book Reviews)
I loved the way this trilogy started and really hoped to keep the momentum going. but it seemed to peak at book 2. book 3 was great because of Cloan and her spunk but fell flat at the end. always entertaining but left me hoping for more.
author lost focus, rescinded story with metaphors. did not end story, instead gave the review of a student in chemistry or earth science that had fell asleep during class in metaphysics, entertaining relativity. A C+ for class participation. Reader, writer, wrong.
A Science Fantasy writer, ever on the quest for the one book that will sweep her off her feet.
No; I would've liked to say it was but... no. It was not well-spent time. While Reader (the first book in the trilogy) was quite enjoyable, the other two were boring, confusing, and incredibly repetitive.
I would've stuck to Ambra Dawn's POV, rewrite that atrocious romantic plot device that was Writer, and made it into a story of a semi-omnipotent girl on the path to self destruction. If you've only listened to Reader, you might think this is where the story will lead you but... I'm afraid I must shatter your dreams.
Her performance in Reader and Maker was very good; she conveys Ambra's emotional state so well I could not help but be completely enthralled by her painful journey. I felt it. Unfortunately, Writer is told from a male character's perspective, and she had to deepen her tone; as a result, her narration suffered.
I would gladly watch Reader; the other two I would ignore.
I wanted to like this trilogy, I truly did, but it seems most of the author's creative efforts were invested in Reader, and from there he didn't quite reach the story he wanted to tell. Either that or his aim was to alienate all of us who liked Reader.
