Reviews - What do customers think about Edward Maret: A Novel of the Future?
A novel of what? May 30, 2006
First, this is an example of an author reviewing their own book numerous times. Look at the anonymous reviews with little say other than how great the book is above. Simply. This book sucks. It's not a novel of the future. The structure of the book fits no narrative flow. There's no hook. No inciting incident. The author then meanders around, expecting the reader to enjoy the thoughts tossed out. The escalating conflict seems to be missing. And a climactic scene? Where? So. The author can keep posting five star reviews on his own book to keep his rating up. Good luck. Bye.
Outstanding Science Fiction Mar 14, 2004
This futuristic version of the Count of Monte Cristo is one of the best science fiction novels I have read in quite some time. Edward Maret, a not too introspective but kind hearted and wealthy scion of a prominent family, is egregiously framed by jealous rivals (one being his cousin). On the eve of his marriage Maret is falsely accused of being a member of a rebel group. Other intrigues ensue, resulting in Maret's family being told he was killed in and accident, when in reality he has his memory erased and is turned into a cyborg programmed to follow orders and become a killer...soldier...cannon fodder for the state.
Through a series of events, AX-17, formerly Edward Maret, is captured by an alien diplomat at war with the human race and after being tortured to point of death, his memory is restored. Just like the Count of Monte Cristo-Maret travels the universe eventually to return to seek revenge on those who betrayed him.
It may sound like a wild plot-but this is an extremely well written and entertaining science fiction novel. I highly recommend it.
highly satisfying first science fiction novel Jun 11, 2001
Robert Katz's EDWARD MARET touches all the bases: cyborgs, aliens, cyberspace, Thomas Aquinas, DNA, trips across the galaxy, political intrigue, betrayal, love, and more. And Katz serves it up in a snappily written, evocative style, plangent with memorable images, details, and metaphor. Katz is an author to watch; meanwhile, enjoy his debut novel.
The Count of Monte Cristo Meets Robocop Apr 4, 2001
A classic tale of revenge updated for tomorrow. Edward Maret moves quickly enough to entertain, yet pauses briefly to consider ethical issues, some timeless, and others which are just now appearing on the horizon. Fun to read; interesting to ponder.
One of the Best Science Fiction Novels in recent years... Mar 15, 2001
Katz has written a great book. It is a true science fiction adventure with incredibly well-drawn characters and worlds that you will remember long after you finish. It conjures up Herbert, Heinlein, plus has a modern SF tone and style to it. A must-read for anyone who enjoys a well-written, entertaining book filled with interesting ideas.
