Flimsy Little Plastic Miracles by Ron Currie, Jr. is unlike any book I’ve ever read. I think it is amazing! The fictional story (told in whole truth) is narrated by a “dead” man whose name just happens to be Ron. It is a love story, a science fiction story, and meaning of life story all rolled into one.
Laid out as streams of consciousness and random thoughts rather than the usual chapter by chapter format, the story switches from one story line to another. Some pages of the book are only half-filled with text. Surprisingly, it was easy to follow and captivating.
Prior to reading this book, I’d never heard of Singularity. It is an interesting concept about the future of the world woven in and out of the story’s main plot which is basically about two people who are drawn to each other, but never seem to get it right. I must note, I’d rate this book “R” for Mature Adults because it contains areas of graphic sex. I never got the feeling though that this aspect of the book did anything other than increase the reader’s understanding of the depth of the relationship between the two main characters.
I’m giving away a copy of this book at the end of February. If you’re interested, email me at the address listed in my previous post. It’s a good read!
