One Pod. The chilling mantra of Kristyn Dunnions futuristic science fiction book Big Big Sky draws parallels with the present world, exposes widely avoided truths, and forces readers to rethink the current situation of the world.
ScanMans, an alien world, have taken over the ravaged remains of the earth, dominating the lives of every Pod, controlling every aspect of their more or less meaningless existence. These Pods are fighting machines, trained to do this and nothing less. But as they reach the wild, their StarPod begins to change.
In the pages of Big Big Sky, Dunnion has woven a very real world where survival is everything and its every Pod for themselves. Through journeys of discoverydiscovery of the truth, discovery of the past, and self-discoveryeverything that not only the characters know, but everything that the reader knows and has taken for granted, is thrown into turmoil. Questioned. Reflected, wondered about.
The very integrity of co-habitation of different spieces and morality of human actions and situations are shaded in undertones.
An entrancing read with unique vocabulary and a very distinct storytelling style. Readers are carried along, feeling the very emotions of the characters as they face trial after tribulation. From the very glum glum moments to the marvel at the big big sky, Dunnions Big Big Sky is a very raw read.
