Book Review : New York Deep by Andrew J Morgan

Synopsis : 

Deep below Manhattan, tunnel engineer Josh Reed leads his team as they excavate the East Side Access extending New York's railway service. But sparks fly as the drill hits an unusual crystalline material—one Josh has never seen before. They push on and Josh discovers something even more unexpected . . . a vast room, empty and lifeless.

Or so it seems.

When Josh finds out that the CIA are now looking for him, and that his co-workers have gone missing, he turns to his best friend and boss Lionel Parker for help. Together they unravel the mystery of the room, what's inside it, and why the CIA are so desperate to keep them silent.

It's nothing they could ever have expected.

Review :

At last I can write the review for this amazing novel. I like the cover and the tittle. The blurb doesn't give this story justice. I don't mean this is perfect novel but it just doesn't convey it.

The main character in this story is Josh Reed. He is tunnel engineer. One day when drilling, his team hit something that turns out to be an empty room. But this is not ordinary room. Turn out this special room change everything for Josh Reed life and people surrounding him. Josh Reed character is simple. At first you don't feel anything for him. But in the end, you feel sorry and proud of him at the same time. The main antagonist in this story is CIA. You too feel sorry for him because he truly believe he did the right thing. Another character that I love is little Joseph. Don't know why but I have soft spot for cute and shy toddler.

The story itself is quite unusual. The premise is good. Of course it could have been handled better with more explanation about what, how, and why. The ending is unexpected and quite bitter sweet. It certainly leaves strong impression even though I can understand some people may not like it. Anyway, I really recommend this story for people who like to read "not your average science fiction story".

Rating : 4 of 5
