apocalyptic, weird, (and long 500 pages), science / speculative fiction ebook in a kind of Faukner-esqe first person narration by different characters. The 11 year old girl genius triplets who are amoral psychopaths get my vote.
mature content, btw. Well Written (except for the first two chapters IMHO) and well worth a try.
A novel of speculative fiction in which the identity of a brain damaged narrator is explored through fragments of memory, possibly not his own. Told in a floating first person narrative, the memories are of four disparate people, constantly replaying and overriding his consciousness. The struggle has greater implications as, after awakening at the site of an apparent disaster, the narrator finds himself the only survivor.
The four identities each unfold through their own main currents in the novel and follow:
Jon Chivy Coyote, a disgraced former detective, teacher, and pseudo-celebrity of native/aboriginal descent, enlisted to use his tracking skills to find a bizarre serial killer hunting in a metropolitan park. The killer may be, in some way, the herald to the impending disaster.
Naiya McCloud, a gold-digging female scientist obsessed with architecture to such a degree she is gradually falling in love with her house. Her hypersensitivity and sexual episodes are indicative of the change in reality which is gradually taking hold.
Aurora Vitellius, one of three identical triplets born of royal ancestry, whom after the death of their parents, become the controlling force behind one of the biggest fortunes. Though still practically prepubescent, these legally emancipated girl-prodigies can now apply their sinister intentions without limit.
Guy Connel, a perpetually unlucky construction worker who survives a seeming industrial accident to a wholly new, bizarre, and transcendent life.
