book Ù The Courier San Angeles #1 Ç Gerald Brandt

The Courier San Angeles #1G from people that seem to know her every move she is rescued by Miller a member of an underground resistance group only to be pulled deeper into a world she doesn’t understand They work together to stay ahead of the corporate killers until Miller falls into their hands Kris realizes being alone isn’t the answer and she’s willing to do anything to get him back A fun read The reader is on a fun ride from beginning to end with Kris and she evades the bad guys and helps the good guys still up for debate in my opinion Kris is a fun character to follow but you get other perspectives in the novel to which help to round out the world Kris lives in The different perspectives help to paint the picture of a futuristic corporate America where politicians are truly puppets to forward the corporate agenda Different countries are controlled by competing companies who are trying to create a worldwide monopoly This sci world that Brandt creates isn't too far fetched so it's easy to believe in this world enough to enjoy the story Brandt writes There is some mature YA crossover potential in this book due to sex and language However I think fans of sci fi YA novels or thrillers while enjoy this book a lot

Make it without anyone’s help Witnessing the murder of one of her clients changes everything Now she’s stuck with a mysterious package that everyone seems to wantNow the corporations want Kris gone and are willing to go to almost any length to make it happen Hunted scared and alone she retreats to the only place she knows she can hide the Level 1 streets Runnin Reviewed by Rabid ReadsDNF at 15%The world of THE COURIER is a future dystopian version of a combined San Francisco and Los Angeles I think where space is presumably at a premium bc people are building up instead of out Our MC Kris is a courier she delivers packages on a motorcycle while wearing kick ass high tech riding gear in this brave new world where an informal caste system based on seven complete and separate levels of the city determines an individual's uality of life melodrama included for later reference People that worked or lived on Level 1 which used to be open air and grass and trees had the sense to stay out of any water that managed to drip its way down there Rumor had it the stuff could kill you in three days if it touched your skin I used to live in that hellhole so I knew different I even got desperate enough to drink it once when I ran away from home I had peeled the moss off an old brick wall hoping it would act like a filter my hands shaking from hunger and thirst and sueezed the lifesaving fluid from it It must have worked; I’m still here Maybe I just got lucky It didn’t matter I was never going back there But despite moving up a level and getting a decent job it didn't take long to figure out things were about to turn nasty for Kris “It’s just a short run a pickup on Level 4 and a delivery on Level 2 You can take the paperwork home with you honey and drop it on my desk in the morning” I just stared at her Having Dispatch let you take the paperwork home with you was like being plucked off the street and taught how to fly a shuttle to and from the Sat Cities Shit like that didn’t happen alarm bellsInitially I was intrigued but it took about two seconds for me to become disgusted with Kris's bad attitude and double standards I can't recall a negative or obnoxiously self pitying character I'm not saying she hadn't had a hard life that her cynical outlook wasn't warranted all the best characters have survived any number of Bad Things andor overcome adversityBUTThey don't waste time feeling sorry for themselves or on melodramatic remembrances They don't bitch and moan about every single minuscule aspect of their existence BUTKris does 1 If they came at all Bc poor poor Kris is a low level and not a priority 2 Almost pleasant Nothing is ever pleasant for poor poor Kris Almost is as good as it gets3 People would be out doing whatever it was with all their cashPoor poor Kris wouldn't know4 Something about congestion and pollution and death tollsEDVARD MUNCH FACEAnd that my friends was just one page Worse than that she's all talk “I’ve been waiting forever What did you decide to walk all the way here? And why did you take the wall? The aisles are way faster” Aww hell Why did he have to be an asshole as well as a freak? I took a deep breath and held my tongue for the second time in the last few minutes There was no point in getting reported and having Dispatch even upset with me All this for a few extra bucks? I should have just gone home That was her second should've just gone home inner monologue the first was when she took the last minute delivery but she was too scared of Dispatch to do anything besides rant internally ALSO she likes to name call but again never out loud flares nostrilsBeyond my hatred of the main character the writing was pretty awful The chapters were short and choppy As soon as I acclimated to one POV it would change to another often covering the same time period The shifts were abrupt and sometimes confusing especially when I would find myself in the mind of a psychopath I probably could have eventually adjusted to the POV changes but the weird fixation and the various and redundant use of gut pushed me over the edgeThe third time Kris felt her gut clench at only 8% into the book I did a word search and discovered it was actually only the second time The first mention of her gut had to do with it burning My bad Beyond those first three there were EIGHT low flame burning in my gutmy gut clenchedI felt my gut clenchand the food in my gut had turned into rocktwisted its tentacles into my gutsharp thrill settled into my guta scream tore from my gutthe anger building in my guthad been churning in my gutMy gut clenchedregret again settled into my gutThere were also four gutted men years of built up fish guts one head driven into someone else's gut one gun pointed at a gut and one assumption that uincey would probably just gut him I'd take that betAnd I'm done THE COURIER by Gerard Brandt was not for me I'm a character driven reader so hating the main character would've been insurmountable by itself my dislike of the writing was bonus Ugh ugh ugh Not recommended
