Maurice Benayoun's Virtual Reality Interactive Installation
From Debbie Wiley Book Reviews
FICTION SUSPENSE & THRILLERS
by Nate Kenyon
a job no one else wanted… but William Bellows is willing to give it a
shot. However, from the moment he arrives at the New London Towers, he
meets resistance at every turn. Three users of the New London computer
programming have been killed while accessing the virtual system and yet
no one wants to give him the access he needs to find the bug within the
programming. Is Kara a friend or foe? And just why is he being
monitored with his every move?
PRIME is a phenomenal science fiction tale that offers a dark glimpse
of what happens when reality becomes too enmeshed with virtual reality.
Does a clone have free will or the same rights as one who is not a
clone? What are the roles of government and religion as they apply to
free will of the individual? Nate Kenyon delves deep into the world of
science fiction to ask just these sorts of questions in a world that is
disturbingly similar to our own.
Nate Kenyon excels at world building as he crafts a world in which
technology dominates society. However, PRIME is not the sort of tale in
which the technical details overwhelm the story. Instead, Nate Kenyon
uses this backdrop to address issues of today as he offers a startling
grim look at what can go awry when the lines between reality and the
virtual world are blurred.
PRIME is a short book but one that produces some very thought provoking
questions with each reread offering a new perspective. Nate Kenyon’s
science fiction tale has all the earmarks of a classic. Bravo!
