Mike, by Andrew Norriss
For a story largely about how the subconscious influences people, Norriss's storytelling is surprisingly free of emotions or feelings. It's a decent adventure, but largely told in a passive voice that sounds stiff and cold. Even the romance is told with clinical precision, as just something that happens. As for drama, suspense is largely lacking. In the end, it felt like I was reading a biographical entry in an encyclopedia.
[Disclosure: I received an ARC from the publisher in exchange for an honest and unbiased review. The book is scheduled for release on February 26th.]
