I had no idea what to expect from this book, as the little blurb on the back only told me that it would probably be sci-fi, but I had no other hints than that. What actually convinced me to buy this book, were Dream&Nightmare’s cute, pleading eyes, while the staff of Fusselschwarm was trying to get me to buy it. I ended up buying it, and had it signed.
Boy, am I glad that I picked up this book! The Laputan Factor was an incredibly enjoyable read, which experience a wide range of emotions, which is what I always hope a book will do to me. It was a bit confusing at first, but the more information you got as a reader, the easier it was to understand what was actually going on.Where the story lacks in character depth, Wolf makes up for with an intriguing plot that made it almost impossible for me to put the book down, especially towards the end of the story.
Being familiar with D&N’s art, I’d expected the book to be quite a bit steamy. However, Wolf decided to keep it moderately PG, with a lot of innuendo and implied scenes. I personally think it was a wise decision to do so, as it would only have distracted from the actual plot. Well done.
I would love to recommend this book to all lovers of sci-fi.
