REVIEW Strungballs

REVIEW × PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB Ò Mike Russell READ Strungballs í PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB Strungballs is an extraordinary novella from Strange Books author Mike Russell What are Strungballs Ten year old Sydney is about to find out but first he must have a cube of his flesh removed Sydney will. I received a copy of Strungballs in exchange for an honest review I would like to thank the author and also Jay the Strangebooks secretary for this opportunity This review will contain minor spoilers This is a short novella numbering only 66 pages and when it commences we are introduced to a young gentleman called Sydney who is in a 4m x 4m x 4m room awaiting an operation The medical procedure is to have a cube of his flesh removed this cities initiation into adulthood for the youngsters He is then gifted a Strungball by Mother and Father for his bravery This is simply a cube with a red ball on a white string and the device is inserted into the place where his cube of flesh used to be leaving the Stungball dangling in front of Sydney s white gown He has the latest coolest design and it beaming with pride He promises to adhere to the Strungball Rule Once a Strungball is inserted it must never be removedThe action takes place in an uncomplicated utopian science fiction type city full of Strungball advertising posters where the inhabitants must always do what is good The city is a torus corridor containing 999 identical rooms After room 999 room 1 comes next Numbers sizes and measurements seem important to the cities tenants as well as in the way Russell writes this tale Everything seems eual and perfect Their existences seem very routine such as residents going to work or school daily and like clockwork and in addition the aspirations most children have is to either work in the highly respected industries of Strungball sales or a Strungball advertising This must be this world s euivalent of an actor or footballer The curtains to Sydney s room are always closed The city is protected by a barrier that keeps the monsters away so that the citizens can continue living their tranuil existence All is good until Sydney meets a gentleman called Albert who makes him uestion WhyThe characters all seem robotic and stereotypical in this city Like they have been brainwashed It is no coincidence that the book cover looks like it does All except Albert who is the only individual who has doubts and uestions this good society and the need to dangle Strungball from their gowns What does the city need the cubes of flesh for anyway The first half of the narrative flows at a steady pace After this stage through Sydney starts uestioning things and then embarks on a bizarre journey where he encounters a hollow inside out giant travels through a forest of veins all whilst contemplating the difference between what is finite and what is infinite He may also meet one of these fabled monsters on his travels Strangebooks is an apt name for this Brighton based indie press who released this as well as Russell s short story collection Nothing is Strange This was a highly uniue weird and perhaps even mind altering reading experience which I enjoyed The second half of the story does descend to another level of peculiar chaos that was sometimes confusing I had to work hard to follow what was going on when reading towards the conclusion I would normally rate this 355 yet I am rounding it up to 45 because it is like nothing I have ever read before Jameswwwyouandibookswordpresscom

Strungballs by Mike RussellThis book by Mike Russell is another short story It s a great read for those who want a short exciting read and for those like me who didn t want to commit to another Games of Thrones book right awayThis book is weird if I put it lightly The thought of a strungball was not something I have ever dreamed up in my life but Mike Russell somehow thought this up and created a story about it It s uniue and enticing to me when someone can create such interesting thoughts which is why I enjoyed this bookGetting to see this uniue and different world through out main character s eyes was great It s kind of sci fidystopian esue which would be great for readers who are interested in those topics It s such a utopia that it s a dystopiathose books are always interestingThe book is so precise and so fantastical it s hard to explain it in my own wording without ruining it This utopia perfect world that is so perfect that it s not is probably the best way I can word it I love how Mike made this world so perfect because it makes you feel uneasy and thrilled by each turn this short story takesOur main character seems to be the only person uestioning or going against the true perfection in this novel While this has been done a hundred times over it s very fitting in this novel Normally I would be annoyed and disgusted by seeing this trend over and over but I liked it here Mike makes it fit just well enough that I m not uestioning itLike Mike s other books you will begin uestioning reality and life itself It raises so many thought provoking uestions in such little space but that s why I found it to intriguing I have to say this is definitely my favourite book by him and I want to come back to it at a later date to see if my feelings change on this novel or notOverall this maddening book will drive you over the edge with peculiarity It s a great readFive out of five

Note I received a review copy of this book from the author in exchange for an honest review I am glad I got a chance to read this book 25 Stars This is very strange and weird book Honestly I couldn t get the main concept of the book Strungballs It just raised lot of uestions after I finished the bookCharacters Well only Syndney and Albert were little likable characters in the book because of their uniueness and ability to think out of box and they made little sense Everyone else were weird and stereotypical and made no sense sounded like all were under hypnosisWhat I liked Beginning of the book was interesting I was hooked to book till first half of the book I loved the way author built the world in the book It gave a good dystopian science fiction look All the numerical in the book the rooms and the time was interesting I liked the infinity concept in the book it made book very interesting Second thing I liked was the rebellious nature of Sydney his ability to oppose what was taught I mean fighting stereotypical thoughts and rules and his ability of thinking out of sphere and Strungballs It taught to think about the greater good and the not the good that was told and accepted by everyone Even the Anatomy part of the book was fine it was strange but was okay I could understand little What I understood from the whole Anatomy part was I could guess that this whole city and people were kind of living in cell or something or was like two identical pairs of DNA But I m not totally sure I like author s strange imagination I haven t come across this kind of strange booksAll stars for these points and author s imagination and writingWhy 25 Mostly I cut stars because I couldn t grasp this following points it all confused me a lot May be my imagination is working properly for this book I don t knowSo what I didn t understand was the second half of the book That white sand part outside the sphere exactly what place it was I could understood two person or whatever it was produced the new person But that baby part and baby eating Strungballs I was lost at this point and the end of the book doesn t make any sense And at the end of everything it all takes me back to the uestion I had at the starting of the book what the Strungballs was and why people had that at the first place and what just happened at the end I was thinking and thinking after I finished the book but I couldn t get anything Book started with very much potential but these things just gave me brain attack I guess if there was clarity of all these I could have enjoyed the bookOverall it was strange read uniue imagination but unfortunately not for me Read reviews on my blog Books Teacup and Reviews
