I’m typically a very fast reader. However, in order to get a good grasp of what was happening in Godonism, I really had to slow down and read very carefully. The author throws a lot of information at the reader very quickly, and uses excessive description in an attempt to clear up the information, but sometimes it only serves to make the story convoluted. I even went back and read the summary of the book to see if there was something that I missed, and I was right: at no point in the story did I understand that Ahma and Jovian had been fired from Windmill Plant–they just seemed to be on the run constantly.
That being said, the story itself (once you begin to understand it a little farther in) was a very thought-provoking one. The entire thing felt like one big metaphor for the constant war over ‘free will’ and ‘predestination’ and how overzealousness can ultimately corrupt and destroy, no matter how good the intentions. It speaks about time as if it were a real person, and in the apocalyptic setting, you really begin to think that time is a person.
Lots of craziness abound, but if you can ignore that, Godonism throws some new concepts and perceptions your way that really make you stop and think.
