(Reviewed by Jeyran Main)
I truly think Interpretation is one of the best science fiction novels I have read. It is a dystopian science fiction novel about Carl Winston. He has a son, Liam whom he adores. Everything seems to be going as normal until Carl takes his annual government test. His answers are considered flawed, and that becomes a problem.
This is when the story takes an interesting turn. Carl is separated from his son, and the story is unraveled with many dark secrets and hardship in understanding the truth behind it all.
The government appears to be the owner, and the people are the creations. In this dystopian world, human emotion, hope and dreams are interpreted differently. This twisted and very novel story takes you on a journey where you don’t really wish to go. It constantly makes you think, “What if this was true and what if it happened now?”
I particularly like the father-son relationship between Carl and Liam. The added romance is also very pleasing. Eva and Carl’s connection is a nice additional touch in this simulated cold environment of mind control. The storytelling has a very intriguing psychological touch. Being controlled and having your mindset so strongly manipulated by others that you are not able to even distinguish reality , is written in such a professional way.
The story has no flaws, and the literature standard exceeded my expectations. I look forward to reading more from this author.
