EXCERPT FROM THE RAGE ROOM:
I couldn’t live like this. And I couldn’t let my children live like this either. There was only one
solution. I had to go back and kill them. I’d never been so certain of anything in my life.
I held my wrist out. The gates opened and through I went.
But when I opened my eyes, I wasn’t in my house. I was in the rage room. I smelled of asphalt
and diesel. I held a hammer and I was poised, mid swing.
This was all wrong. I was supposed to be back in my house, back in the clean world where I’d
be in control. What was going on?
And then it all came back to me.Every so often I like to choose a book that’s outside my usual genre. The Rage Room was that wild card for me and I really enjoyed it. It’s set in a dystopian world which I’m a fan of, however, this was a little different as our main character is found there by his own fault.
Sharps Barkley wants to change the world using time travel but everyone knows changing things has a ripple effect. Sharps finds himself in the Rage Room. His new reality isn’t pleasant but he gets through it with dark twisted humour and a chance to explore his new reality.
Sharps isn’t the hero type but he is entertaining. Set in 2055 we explore the future with the humour of the past. This is an undesirable world for Sharps right til the end. Can he find redemption or will he find his worth?
*This isn’t a romance novel. I think it’s classed as feminist fiction. It’s an interesting thriller which kept me engaged right till the end.
*I received an ARC in exchange for an honest review as part of a blog tour. The writing style is good and the creative world comes to life.
