  4. I m not a person who likes science fiction a whole lot To be honest, I prefer Fantasy So there have been very few sci fi books that have genuinely interested me Numbercaste was one of them It s a story about a man who became God and it is a brilliant and scary idea of what the world could be like in the very near future where someone is always watching you I enjoyed reading the book because, for me, it was a bit like Ready Player One Before you descend on me in fury claiming the books are I m not a person who likes science fiction a whole lot To be honest, I prefer Fantasy So there have been very few sci fi books that have genuinely interested me Numbercaste was one of them It s a story about a man who became God and it is a brilliant and scary idea of what the world could be like in the very near future where someone is always watching you I enjoyed reading the book because, for me, it was a bit like Ready Player One Before you descend on me in fury claiming the books are nothing alike, let me explain what I mean There were lots of little references to the things that Yudhajaya likes to read scattered all over the pages Since I enjoy similar things, it was pretty thrilling whenever I stumbled across a reference that I recognized, and I think that was very cleverly done Yudhanjaya writes like he speaks, and maybe it s just me, but I saw a lot of similarities between him and Julius That being said, they are not really alike, but again, there wer...

  6. Orwellian, sinister, and eerily prophetic, what is really intriguing about Numbercaste is that one wouldn t have to think too hard to envision the future Wijeratne describes Without giving a way too many spoilers the story itself discusses the rise of a corporation which eventually ends up influencing the fundamental elements of society in 2070 The story is told through the eyes of Pat, a young writer hired by the company, and the narration is both compelling and unbiased expertly ...

  7. This had such great potential, but ultimately fell flat The flow was disjointed and awkward I thought that the novel had ended at the point where the biography began I continued reading simply because I had already gotten that far, and was surprised that the story picked back up after the biography with an epilogue that should have been the actual final chapter There was no discernible climax The story arc just kind of fizzled out The story is a great concept, but this felt like a third or This had such great potential, but ultimately fell flat The flow was disjointed and awkward I thought that the nov...
