Americosis Vol 1 by Haydn Wilks

Americosis Vol. 1 - Haydn Wilks

Full review on my blog.

Have you ever read a book that doesn’t make sense at all but at the same time it makes sense and leaves you wanting more? Americosis by Haydn Wilks was such a book for me. I don’t mean this in a bad way; I mean it in a good way.

Americosis. The title got me at hello. It’s a new word, it’s intriguing…at least it was for me. The cover of this book gave me the exact idea of what this book was going to be about. As soon as I saw it, I thought I was in for one psychedelic wild trip ride. And I got exactly what I thought.

The book is actually a fast paced short story that can be read in one sitting. An introduction to what looks like an epic apocalyptic story. The plot is made of various you could say outrageous, maddening and hilarious-at-some-point stories happening all at once.

Unfortunately the book is so short, that it ends once your mind has made sense of everything you’ve read. But it is written in such a way, that even though the plot is crazy, you end up feeling like you want to check out the next book.

Americosis is an OK book to read. I gave it two and a half stars because it’s just a teaser; it’s not a well-rounded story that gives the reader full closure. Yes, it leaves you wanting and waiting for more, but not begging like the blurb said it would.

Americosis is a book for adults with an open mind. I don’t recommend this for teens nor advanced reading young adults.

For such a short disturbing book, it got me thinking. The story might not make sense at times, but if you try to find some sense in it, you could see that this can be a critique of sorts of not only America but of today’s society. Therefore, if you’re in the mood for a quick and different read that pokes your mind like only science fiction can do, this is the book for you.
