Technomancer: Unspeakable Things, Book 1 | [B. V. Larson]

Technomancer: Unspeakable Things, Book 1

When Quentin Draith wakes up in a private sanatorium, he has no memory of who he is or how he received the injuries riddling his body. All he knows is that he has to get out, away from the drugs being pumped into him and back to the real world to search for answers. His first question: How did his friend Tony’s internal organs fill with sand, killing him in a Las Vegas car crash? After a narrow escape, he tracks down the basic facts: He is an investigator and blogger specializing in the supernatural - which is a good thing, because Quentin’s life is getting stranger by the minute.

Publisher's Summary

When Quentin Draith wakes up in a private sanatorium, he has no memory of who he is or how he received the injuries riddling his body. All he knows is that he has to get out, away from the drugs being pumped into him and back to the real world to search for answers. His first question: How did his friend Tony’s internal organs fill with sand, killing him in a Las Vegas car crash?

After a narrow escape, he tracks down the basic facts: He is an investigator and blogger specializing in the supernatural - which is a good thing, because Quentin’s life is getting stranger by the minute. It seems he is one of a special breed, a person with unusual powers. He’s also the prime suspect in a string of murders linked by a series of seemingly mundane objects. The deeper he digs and the harder he works to clear his name, the more Quentin realizes that some truths are better off staying buried….

    "Great story!"

    This is reminiscent of a mini-series called "The Room". The story is very well done, which is typical of B.V. Larson and I really liked the narration. Excellent all-around.

    Story
    "A new take on the "modern magic" genre"

    It is nice when someone comes up with a totally new description of the world, as in "here is what is really going on and most of the world does not even realize it!" Whether you want to classify the items in the story as "magic" or "advanced science" does not really matter. What does matter is the seamless way that Larson has taken the worn-out pulp private eye genre and imbued new life into it by setting it in a place where all is not what it seems. Definitely room for some more books if it becomes a series!

    Story
    "An interesting read for SF/Fantasy Fans"
    What about Christopher Lane’s performance did you like?

    Christopher's reading added a 40s PI story flavour to the story. This really added to the plot and capitalised on Larson's style of writing.


    Any additional comments?

    Great Story but it didn't hold me enough to go and get the next book in the series straight away as the plot closed of most of the leads that held me and only minor plot issues remain that didn't compel me to buy the next book straight away. But I will.

    Story
    "Memorable"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    This is a good book, particularly if you are a fan of the fantasy genre with a touch of science fiction. It wasn't particularly strong in the hard science realm, but made up for the deficiency in other ways.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    The main character was very endearing, in a similar fashion to that seen in the swarm series by the same author.

    Story
    ""The Lost Room" in book form."
    Any additional comments?

    I think that this premise is based off the TV Mini Series "The Lost Room" which when I checked was made in 2006, the Objects and the way they work is exactly the same even that they are believed to be created in the 60's, I must say it is one of my favorite Sci-Fi shows so I am always comparing the book to the show.

    I and found the book easy to listen to, I have found B.V Larson to be a bit hit and miss for me but this series has started out quite good, I found the characters to develop at a pace that suits the story, it is a bit slow in places for how the story runs but I find that with this writer, all in all a way to spend the day on the tractor with the headphones on.

    "Vegas like you've never experienced!"

    A fun read, kept me wanting my tired body to stop and finally get some rest but unwilling to wait for the next spellbinding chapter.

    Story
    "Just Good Enough"
    Any additional comments?

    This book was just good enough to keep my attention & want to continue.in the end i am glad that i did.I had a VERY tough time getting past the first chapter. I mean, how did the lawyers let the opening scene through. Did no one else notice the direct rip-off of Roger Zelazny's book The Nine Princes of Amber!!?? C'mon: A guy wakes up in a Sanitorium with amnesia...overpowers a nurse & orderly, gets a gun, confronts the head doctor???? I almost stopped there. Fortunately the story eventually grows on you but there are still enough flaws to keep me from rating this story above 3 stars: I had a problem with Christopher Lane's idea of different characters voices and/or accents. For example we have a (Las Vegas) police detective with a pronounced New York voice. And our hero seems amazinly unconcerned about his apparent lack of memory.Overall, I have to admit that the story held my attention. i wanted to hear more about the characters & see how things wrapped up.. I am happy i did; i thing Larson came up with some clever, original concepts.

    "Super Powered Detective"
    If you could sum up Technomancer in three words, what would they be?

    Super Powered Detective


    What other book might you compare Technomancer to and why?

    Honestly can't think of any. It is more of a mix of detective story meets xfiles meets heroes.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    My favorite scene was when he confronted the doctor ming.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    Xfiles meets Heroes

    "Good start to a series"

    For some reason the first chapter didn't grab me but one I was past that it was an enjoyable book. The last couple chapters I thought dragged on a little but I will get the next in the series.

    "The Story was good... But"

    sections of the book were lifted from one of my favorite novels, Nine Princes in Amber, and other concepts came straight from the mini series "The Lost Room". Still entertaining though.
