Inhaltsangabe zu „Silent City (Corin Hayes Book 1)“ von G R Matthews

In the Corporation owned cities life is tough. All Hayes wants is money and a bar to spend it in. He is about to learn that some jobs in the abyss can be killers. For a man who has lost everything, is life even worth fighting for? "Do you know what it is like? To wake up every day and remember that your child was murdered and your wife is gone. To know that you killed your workmates, your friends, even if the courts found you innocent. To drink every night, just to forget, in the sure and certain knowledge that, come the morning, it will all come flooding back. Of course you don’t. Why should you? I have nothing, no one and no future. Hell, the world has no future. The topside is gone, the oceans are our home and even they hate our very presence. A moment of weakness and the sea will kill you; crush you into a bloody pulp, food for the sharks and scavengers of the ocean floor. And I make my living out there, in the oceans, scrabbling for jobs off the boards, hoping that everyone has forgotten my name."

  • Great dystopian story!

    Silent City (Corin Hayes Book 1)

    One of my favorite books this year! This dystopian story takes place sometime in the future, when humanity has to live down in the oceans, as the surface is uninhabitable. The main character is absolutely to my liking. I love his dry and dark humor, in all situations, and his dark side. A perfect "broken hero". You can't avoid being pulled on his side and root for him. The story gripped me right from the first page, and didn't let me off the hook again. The writing is perfectly fluent, so you can really dive into the story, without realizing you are reading. Instead you are there, on the bottom of the ocean. The world just seems so real. I can only wholeheartedly recommend this story to anyone, be it fantasy, scifi or thriller fan! My only complaint - it's way too short!
