Spoiler-Free Review of Aetherchrist by Kirk Jones

Thank you to Apex Book Company for sending me a free copy in exchange for an honest review.

Aetherchrist by Kirk Jones was a fascinating read, to say the least. It reminded me of an episode of Black Mirror, a twisted version of today's world where a man keeps seeing his own death playing over and over again on TV.

I will admit at first it was hard to get into because the author goes right into the story with very little world building and descriptions, but as the story goes on it's easier to understand. I found the story to be a perfectly haunting sci-fi thriller, but there were a few things I had problems with.

The author's writing is all around good but every now and then I read some phrases that I just couldn't help but cringe at. The other thing was the weird, to me uncesseccary, sexual scenes that in my opinion really added nothing to the story. Even though I had trouble with these things, once you really get into the story they become less noticeable.

Overall I give this book 4/5 stars and I'd say any sci-fi, dystopian, or even Black Mirror fan should read it.
