Publishers Weekly calls Latency Paradox of Barret Trufflehard “a fun read” that is “wonderfully imaginative, clever, and funny.”
Along with the following:
“Kwon’s knack for giggle-worthy names and inventive gizmos (a plutonizer, the Zwylx Q-Ten gurgle machine) work well with mild romance and themes that include totalitarianism, rival dystopias, and the true purpose of Grainjar’s blighted life.”
The critical review further goes to say “fans will look forward to more adventures in this world.”
Author Brett Wallach says:
“The main issue that I have with most modern fiction that I read is that it’s all so formulaic, and much of it is a rehash of something that I’ve read a hundred times already. Latency Paradox is anything but. I shudder at the pretentiousness of the following statement, but it’s Kafka-esque; it offers the reader a dark, futuristic alternative universe. The real terror comes from its fun house mirror image of our own world. That said, there’s humor (dark of course) aplenty, including the Dickens-like fun of sardonically named characters.
Kwon is one of the most gifted and original new writers that I’ve come across in a long time, and if you’re tired of cookie cutters and ready for a little mind expansion, I highly recommend this brilliant novel.”
Latency Paradox of Barret Trufflehard is on sale now at Amazon.
