Summary ã The Rig Author Roger Levy å PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB free Free read The Rig Author Roger Levy Ehenna the last religious planet a hyperintelligent boy Alef meets psychopath Pellon Ho and so begins a rivalry and friendship to last an epoc. I haven t seen any spoiler laden reviews for this book yet and I m conflicted about specific plot points so I m going to be that person XD The Rig started off great I really enjoyed the development of the two story arcs in the first two thirds of the book I loved Alef the focal character of the novel His traits and motivations are well developed The reader gets a solid sense of how his life on Gehenna affected him from the very first scene which is shocking and terrifying and how he struggles between the pull of science and religion The mystery on Bleak was also engaging and Bale and Razer are likeable charactersHere s my problem with the book the it goes on the predictable it gets Pellonhorc Alef s childhood friend is presented as aggressive and power hungry from the get go Granted his father is an abusive trigger happy crime lord but that doesn t guarantee Pellonhorc would turn out the same way In fact his mother who is his primary caregiver seems to be kind So what happensWell if you thought anyone besides Pellonhorc would become the main villain of the novel you re uickly proven wrong He is neatly set up to become the main villain after the showdown between his father and an enemy crime lord which Pellonhorc carefully engineers so that he gets the upper hand over both of them Surprise Except it isn t a surprise it s the same reused trope of the magnificent bastard which we see throughout fiction Orson Scott Card did it better in the Ender s Shadow series with the character of Achilles Flandres Tolkien did it first in the Lord of the Rings with Sauron At this point Pellonhorc s character arc is predictable His only redeeming value is his loyalty to Alef which uickly turns into his willingness to keep Alef alive for his own purposes Bottom line I anticipated a nuanced characterEven worse is Pireve Alef s wife We don t know much about her besides the fact that she seems to be nice and strives to understand Alef who loves her dearly Okay fine She doesn t need to be well developed because she isn t a major character Except that in the last third of the book the author tries to turn her into one Pellonhorc uses her life as a bargaining tool to keep Alec involved in his crazy machinations Everything Alef does he does for Pireve At that point the reader wants to know about her Who is Pireve Why exactly does Alef like her Well It turns out she s been Pellonhorc s lover all along and the child she s pregnant with might not even be Alef s Called it In the end neither Alef nor the reader know anything concrete about Pireve besides the fact that she cares about Pellonhorc enough to trick another man into loving and marrying herThis is extremely frustrating because Pellonhorc becomes evil as the story goes on so it s hard to understand why Pireve would even like him Moreover all of Alef s love turns out to be unfounded a love that was never explained in the first place The author may be trying to make a point about how nobody can ever really understand someone else but it falls flat I may add to this review later Three Railway Engines you thought anyone besides Pellonhorc would become the main villain of the novel The Heiress In His Bed

Summary ã The Rig Author Roger Levy å PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB free Free read The Rig Author Roger Levy Le a disillusioned policeman on the planet Bleak is brutally attacked leading writer Raisa on to a story spanning centuries of corruption On G. 48 starsThis is the best book I ve read so far in 2019 and I have no idea how I m supposed to write a review for it Maybe I ll take the coward s way out and go with a simple list I loved the writing which was vivid yet easy to read The book throws you into the deep end and expects you to either sink or swim with absolutely no flotation devices The world is imaginative original and a little bit scifi noir is that a thing The characters feel real even though most of them are extreme and implausible No one s exactly good in this book but they still have you on their side I had my mind screech to a halt on several occasions when the plot did not go at all where I expected it to Yet by the end there was a big plot twist that I did catch on to and thus didn t have the desired shock value The story was so incredibly well constructed from beginning to end that I feel like this will be a definite re read in the futureWhat I don t understand is how this book isn t popular A definite hidden gem
