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
I have read Shelly Vendor for the secound time this month, I love it!!! I can`t wait to read your other books, I want to be be a author one day like you, I think you gave me the final boost up when you came to ables writers day, it was quite a long time ago, but I will always remember it, I still have the mini story we wrote with you, Death-Trap, I think I`m going to extend it and trying put it in my own book.
I have also written a whole book, you were really the one who really inspired me to do that.
