That’s how I felt after sobbing my way through the poignant book A Monster Calls, and after reading his weirdly dreamy scifi novel More Than This, that feeling has only intensified. The latter is a terrific blend of I Am Legend + Twilight Zone + The Matrix, but tinged with a thoughtful, still moodiness that I really liked. It’s a bit of a cautionary tale re: technology, and I loved the story structure, characters, and writing. Young Thomasz has particularly great speech patterns and dialogue, and the story never feels cliche or boring–no small feat when the first 30% consists almost entirely of Seth on his own. It asks more questions than it answers, but then again, that’s what the best mindfucks do.
