I really had to think about this review before writing it. There is so much right with Crank Tech One but there is also a lot that is wrong. But overall my experience reading the book was positive. The best thing to say about Crank Tech Run is that it was a fun read. The book is quirky, the story a bit different, it had some fun twists to the story and overall I read it with a smile on my face. I’ve read a lot of “robot” stories and seen a number of “robot” movies and this story was fairly original and not a rehash of plots I had seen before.
However, the writing is very uneven. There are points where I was impressed with a well written section, and then cringing at the writing in another section. Many times the story progressed forward brilliantly – but at other points it relied on hokey contrivances. If the entire book were written up to the standards of its best segments, it would be a five star sci-fi classic. The poor parts had the effect of pulling me out of the story, which is never good.
I am going with four stars because the plot was original, and there were several shining moments in the book.L Sweet 4 stars October 12 2015
'The other day I called to pick my twelve year old granddaughter Shanine up. While waiting for her, I picked up her latest book, Wizards' Kingdom by Colin R. Parsons and could not put it down. She also raved about it, and was eager to get her hands on the next one. I was so pleased that she had finished it, so I could take it home. A great read:' Sheila Quigley author of 'Run For Home'.......'Every Breath you take'...'Thorn in my side' and many other award winning novels.
