Today's review, by Aja LaGrand Blount, is adebut novel. Multiples: A Fictional Rendition of Reality, is a tale of secrets, murder, and the boomerang effect. The notion that people unknown to you are thoroughly involved in your life, without you knowing it is played well, along with discovering the people you thought you knew, you really don't! Here's the blurb:
Multiples is derived from the premise that a person doesn't know those they think they know. Based on that analogy, certain events take place in Multiples that change the fates of many people leaving them destined to face a number of precarious situations. Due to those uncertain circumstances, the will to survive the treacherous road ahead of them places a greater desire to obtain the truth, while seeking to exploit it. However, when the truth of the matter takes shape, another series of affairs arise shattering that predetermined truth into oblivion, leaving the once so clear reality of the situation up in the air. When those playing the game expect everything to come full circle, their enclosure disappears, forcing them to abandon their very idea of what could be and presenting them with new options to explore. Multiples is a high-flying roller coaster from start to finish taking readers down a winding road only to end up just as confused as the characters seeking answers for themselves.
I appreciated the cover very much. It was a true telling of the story. There's a lot of killing going on in this story, by folks unexpected. Multiples refers to the notion of knowing people, when really you don't. I see it as people being multi-faceted, or simply stated, FAKE.
Multiples is full of twists. Many! You find one in the very beginning of the tale, when DP, the main character, is conducting a hit on someone he knows and is betraying for the Almighty Dollar. Then when he gets home, his girl finds out a secret that is directly affected by her boyfriend, DP- Oops! The story is full of this, making it a non-stop turnabout on who the characters really are. Overall, the idea of the story is okay but there are issues throughout the entire book that make the read difficult.
The story is hindered by the telling, as well as the editing. The story is full of grammatical errors, which prevents any attachments to the characters possible. I also found myself rereading sentences, because words were missing or misused. I was able to obtain what the author was saying, but the flow was disrupted to the point of dislike. The book could have potential, but it desperately needs to be reworked first.
Check out Multiples, anywhere you purchase books- grab it on Amazon here. I'm off to the next read.
