    1. Three and a half stars. This was fun to read but it felt like watching a movie I had already seen. And I found the ending a little confusing. But fun nonetheless.


    2. Disclosure: I received a copy of this book from the author. I'm a big fan of future sci-fi and an even bigger fan of flying cars, plus I'm keen on the color pink, so before I even cracked the book, the cover on this one had me drooling a little. Inside was even better than the flashy package. In the tradition of twentieth century sci-fi masters, David Kelly tells a tale of a bleak yet cool future but with a modern update. Earth is done for. We've destroyed the planet. Water levels have risen dan [...]


    3. Being at the wrong place-wrong time leaves taxi-driver, Joe Ballen, at the center of a dangerous conspiracy. To prove his innocence, and catch a killer, he must turn detective and unravel the mystery in this action-packed dystopian sci-fi. Having read the author’s short stories before, I expected an intriguing, intelligent read. Mathematics of Eternity did not disappoint. It was clever and suspenseful, with plenty of action and interesting characters. Mostly, though, it was a hell of a lot of [...]


    4. Really enjoyed this book. I have been hunting for a real page-turner for quite a while now, and this fit the bill. Full of action suspense, it will pull you into the story and keep you there. There were no lags along the way. I also like the dystopian feel to the novel, and the gems of philosophy that make you pause for a while in this very fast moving story. A great job!


    5. Kelly’s delivery is cynical. Humanity’s future is the aftermath of our postindustrial age spent in denial of ecological issues. It made a very enjoyable read! Of all the dystopian stories I’ve read, perhaps this world is the likeliest to occur. Joe is living the life of a taxi driver a lot like Corban Dallas in one of my top ten favorite movies, Fifth Element. Unlike Bruce Willis, Joe was in a horrible accident that left him in prosthetic limbs he couldn’t get used to. One other thing th [...]


    6. Joe Ballen, driver of flying cabs, takes a customer home one night as is witness to his apparent suicide. Things immediately go wrong for Joe. His customer was a scientist and soon some of his colleagues are killed and Joe is fingered for the crimes. Someone is trying to stop their research being made public and Joe is just the convenient man to take the blame.This is an intelligent and fast-moving science fiction book in which the action mainly takes place on earth. There’s something of the d [...]


    7. Not Kindle Unlimited, not from freebie site technically, it was from LibraryThing which means I get free books and they hope I review them which works for me because review everything I read anyway.Interestingly odd/different story, and as usual not going to give rundown of plot; read the blurb, better yet read the book already.



    8. As much as I tend to stay away from reading science fiction I keep being drawn back when I see this authors work and am always glad I did. This time we have the Nerd wars as I have penned it and it is a high action and suspense filled book that I was unable to put down. With murder, mayhem and suspense this book has it all. I recommend it highly.


    9. I received a free copy of this novel through the giveaways programme, in return for an honest review.Have to say that I enjoyed this one; I'm often dubious of independent authors, having experienced some truly awful work - but Kelly is one of the good ones. Some of the editing is a little uneven, with typos and the like, but the story itself is action packed and fun. The characters are well drawn and developed, and the overall noir tone works very well.I'm not entirely sure about the gender pol [...]


    10. I won this book in a giveaway. Otherwise I would have put it down a quarter of the way through. Although the plot was moderately interesting and it was definitely action-packed, the appeal was suppressed by the amount of derisive stereotyping, chauvinism, and unnecessary - though apparently not unusual - sexual dialogue. Something about the way it was written made it hard to follow what was happening in several places. It didn't help that the author kept making up words. Now, obviously in SciFi [...]
