Rin, Tongue and Dorner

Rich Shapero

23rd January 2019

A weird book that I was leant by a friend. It follows the life of an engineer in a post-apocalyptic society, where people live on islands under domed habitats kept warm in a snowball earth scenario by massive, temperamental generators. It’s a fascinating setting and has the potential to make for a really interesting story - but unfortunately this isn’t that story.

The narrative focusses on the engineer Dorner as he falls in love with Rin and is affected by a voice in his head called Tongue. After a quantity of sex and weirdness, the narrative descends into a chaotic mess of fire that I struggled to follow or maintain any interest in.

I’m afraid I don’t think I got it - I wasn’t entertained, and only really made myself keep reading to the end so that I could provide adequate feedback to my friend. Not recommended.
