  2. lynns books 2015 12 05 theI ve been thinking about The Machinery for a couple of days and struggling to come up with a coherent review Put bluntly, I m not sure that I totally understand yet what exactly is going on, I certainly came away from this first novel with plenty of questions and I ve explored a few ideas but overall I think this is a very clever novel even if it feels a little psychedelic in parts Okay, firstly, I have no idea of the time or place that the novel is set We have a strang [...]


  3. With a name like The Machinery, I think I was expecting this novel to be straight science fiction, but I quickly realised we re in the realms of a fantasy Gerrard Cowan has created a genuinely intriguing work of fiction that grabs you from page one We jump straight into the midst of the story with a short prologue dealing with a boy called Alexander and his apparent abduction Years later, his sister, Katrina, is still none the wiser to the reasons behind his disappearance All she knows is that [...]


  4. Gerrard Cowan s The Machinery is an interesting debut novel It is also one that took me longer than usual to read When I first started this last year I had just hit my reading slump, which meant that I got stuck at about page 42 and didn t pick it back up until somewhere this summer And even on my second try it took me a bit to get really grabbed by the narrative However, I liked the writing immediately Cowan writes in an easy manner which has you reading on without noticing the passage of pages [...]


  5. Every so often you come across a book that really hits the spot For me, The Machinery was just such a book An intriguing plot Characters that emerge from what we learn about them from other characters, creating a complex web of relationships A wholly convincing world that clearly inhabits a borderland between the real and the surreal All very tasty Yet important as these all are, for me there is an added dimension to this book that lifts it and that is the feel of those things in combination In [...]


  6. original review JC s Book Haven It does not trust you It knows you do not believe it The Operator laughed, and the room seemed to darken I like you, Alexander I like that you think you can talk to me, in such a way, about my own creation You do not understand it fully, Operator If you did, you would believe the words Ruin is coming The GoodI really enjoy some of the powerful characters in the story The Operator and Squatstout for instance They really differ from one another while at the same ti [...]



  7. This review originally appeared on Pop Verse.I met Gerrard Cowan last year at FantasyCon where we both sat on a panel discussing writing habits His debut novel, The Machinery, was initially released last year with a paperback available from March 2016 The follow up, The Strategist, is due out in June.Don t let the title or cover fool you The Machinery is not a science fiction novel The book falls firmly in the realm of fantasy from prophecies, chosen ones, and magic The military aspect of the no [...]


  8. I received this book from the author, through NetGalley, in exchange for an honest review.There is an intriguing concept at the core of this novel the part of the world in which the action takes place, the Overland, is governed by the Machine, a mysterious and unseen construct that has ruled for ten thousand years, slowly but surely extending the Overland s dominion over any known territory The Machine interacts with the people through the Operator, a timeless character equally shrouded in myste [...]


  9. I received an eARC of this book from the author in exchange for an honest review This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of this review.Have you ever read a book that left you wondering what the heck and wanting all at the same time The Machinery by Gerrard Cowan is that book With it s name and even it s description I was expecting an epic sci fi adventure, but it didn t take but just the first chapter to correct that assumption The Machinery falls into an epic fantasy with [...]


  10. More reviews available at my blog, Beauty and the Bookworm.The Machinery was recommended to me by a random person in the unofficial National Novel Writing Month Facebook group to fulfill my reading challenge category of A book recommended by someone you ve just met I put it off and put it off because there were just intriguing things on my list, and honestly I m glad I did because if I hadn t read it with a looming end of year deadline, I don t think I would have finished it.The main draw of th [...]


  11. Review of The Machinery by Gerrard CowanBasic PlotIn the Overland the people are ruled by the cryptic Machinery , which through selection of their council of leaders has controlled their fate for almost ten millennia Now in the 10000th year a prophecy has foretold that the Machinery will break and Ruin will come in the wake of the selection of only One ruler.As a child Katrina Paprissi witnessed the abduction of her brother by the Operator, the revered man who bestowed the Machinery on the peopl [...]


  12. The Machinery is a strange book that left me with questions than answers It focuses on the politicians of the world that the Machinery inhabits, giving a rather insular feeling The use of the Machinery was meant to have created a great empire, thriving with science and arts but not much of this is covered You don t get to see what going on in the normal citizens lives and whether or not they really care what s going on behind closed doors.At the start of the book I was quite intrigued that the [...]
