Karma Decay (The Karma Trilogy 1)
Written by Jude Fawley.
Aaron is not happy most of the time these days. He just can’t motivate himself to pick up a dropped item for somebody, hold a door open, go to a house of worship and utter prayers and platitudes because all of these works…are paid. That is how citizens pay their way through society metered by a relay device in their heads to the invasive but saintly Karma computer. It’s there to help mankind achieve great things.
Charles Darcy, hopefully not a mash-up of two characters from Pride and Prejudice, is a model of a modern major…Karma Do Gooder. He doesn’t sleep, doesn’t frolic with the ladies, barely eats, does good works constantly to earn millions of dollars and is the jealous envy of all society even Karma. Is he for real? Will Spector thinks so until he is elevated to SuperKarmaCop and starts tracing inconsistencies. No one is that good!
This was an engaging tale of Science Fiction in a camouflaged dystopian world. Copy edit errors were minimal in that they did not cause me to have to reread material to glean its meaning. The World and Character building were top notch including the side or happenstance characters. I’m giving this a four out of five entertainment thingies. Enjoy!
