clearly illustrated to me the sufficient conditions of bad writing Over the years I have been exposed to thousands of pages of fiction artifacts, varying extremely in their artistic measure, yet always amounting in a textually digestible whole This may have resulted from beginning readings either by creative recommendation of trusted friends or by academic mandate, but either way the material was of a caliber entirely worthy of my time I imagine somewhere along the line this became an assumption After wandering carelessly into the intimidating world of commissioned reviewing, I have witnessed my first published work that breaks that assumption.The Boy Who Played With Dark Matter follows a boy, Zeddy, through a two day exposition of what I can only assume is a greater,engaging adventure It begins life as usually in the tragic future country of Amerasia, where due to undefined radiation and a totalitarian government, it s citizens lead quiet, oppressed, sun screen soaked lives Zeddy s father disappears after taking the dog for a walk and the rest of the action can literally be summarized as Zeddy and his mother visiting two other peoples houses looking for his dad The houses belong to a sorceress and a scientist, respectively, and the payoff of each visit is as stereotypical and bland as one could imagine, given the context It ends with Zeddy still looking for his father, a cliffhanger thankfully low enough you can simply walk away from it.And you will definitely want to, because the book is bad Terrible, really Not by lack of trying, though it is clear in every paragraph the Holy Ghost Writer desperately wants to be thought of as a good writer One may have guessed this by his pretentious pseudonym or despicable self proclaimed spiritual successor to The Count of Monte Cristo, but it is his unkempt writing style that subtly confirms that suspicion Every sentence reeks of artistic insecurity like the works of a middle school autobiographer Impacting detail or imagery are scarcely seen and when they do appear, the importance of what is being described becomes entirely transparent When Ghosty stretches his vocabulary enough to produce an interesting scientific term or descriptive device, it is made sure not to go waste and is thrown onto the page over and over a lot of the time in completely misused ways I understand suspension of belief is omnipresent in fiction, but the author give no reward for following his broken scientific logic What useful description there is to find is procured during the books obscure dream sequences I admit, Ghost comes scarily close to bearable during these short lived moments, but they end quickly, returning you to unbelievable dialogue surrounded by repetitive phrasing.The poor use of science jargon and shallow dialogue aren t the only immersion breaking factors, though The greatest offender is Ghost s ridiculously named cast of imbeciles Every character is given a short, definitive introduction before completely betraying their descriptions with their every word and action Zeddy is supposedly smart Your knowledge is your power, the sorceress down the street tells him, but you never witness the boy do anything altogether intelligent other than keeping his seemingly mentally troubled mother from keeping them aimless Earlier in this review I reference Ghosty as him, and did so because I am quite sure no woman could so quickly label a son and father geniuses and give the mother such a thin and worthless existence This isn t to say the other characters are much better, sadly The larger aspects of the novella, it s themes or motifs things I would love to have been reviewing two paragraphs ago appear just as hollow as it s characters The world is thoughtfully created, an amalgamation of post apocalyptic dystopia and magical realism, but the creative extent to which it uses this genres goes wanting The International Government is very bad, Zeddy s Dad is very good, the air is toxic, and every important character s name starts with a Z , all for no particular reason The world might have been interesting if there was any reason to give a second thought about what was happening to it or its inhabitants.TL DR What very little Ghost does right is buried by everything he does wrong The novella allows a confident, mature child protagonist while belittling it s target audience with senseless prose and less sensical characterization The Boy Who Played With Dark Matter believes children s literature doesn t need to be subtle, complex, or meaningful While I agree those things aren t necessities, sentence structure is, and I m sad to say Ghost gives us none of the above After having one s curiosity peaked by the direction of his stories and the identity of the Holy Ghost Writer, The Boy Who Played with Dark Matter is another fast and entertaining read The story is set decades ahead in a different world which is not completely unimaginable Amerasia where we meet the new main characters, Zeddy and his family The Holy Ghost Writer s imaginative projects of what life is like after the world has combined under one authority the International Government is After having one s curiosity peaked by the direction of his stories and the identity of the Holy Ghost Writer, The Boy Who Played with Dark Matter is another fast and entertaining read The story is set decades ahead in a different world which is not completely unimaginable Amerasia where we meet the new main characters, Zeddy and his family The Holy Ghost Writer s imaginative projects of what life is like after the world has combined under one authority the International Government is entertaining enough The characters and setting are well described in this book, giving the reader a clear enough picture Due to its content and language this part in the series can be considered suitable for readers of many ages and levels, though I consider it particularly well suited to young teenagers who enjoy sci fi The main character, Zeddy, would be a fun character for any young reader to imagine themselves as These statements suggest a different mood from that of the Sultan of Monte Cristo, and almost a completely separate feeling from this book Though both of these books, as well as The Girl That Started Her Own Country, are to be part of a series following The Count of Monte Cristo, the books are completely different material and can easily be ready on their own In this way the books have good entertainment value great for short weekend reads However, some may be frustrated by the lack of continuity What happened to Raymee, Haydee, and the other ongoing adventures in The Sultan of Monte Cristo When we will get to find out what happens to Zeddy and the search for his father in The Boy Who Played with Dark Matter The book drops off rather suddenly at the end, and although the reader gets a sneak peak at what is to come, there is no promise of when it will come At the beginning of the book the continual use of Z names can get a bit dizzying, but one assumes there is a purpose Zeddy is an endearing character, though his genius could probably be extended further As with his other books, The Holy Ghost Writer uses ideas, fragments, or characters from dozens of other literary sources which one may either find annoying or fun the appearance of Sherlock is promised in the book following The Sultan of Monte Cristo, the title for this book follow the patterns of Steig Larsson, THGW s stated goal is to follow the footsteps of Alexander Dumas, and some ideas themes of the books seem to reflect others found in George Orwell, Kurt Vonnegut, and Paulo Coehlo If you want something fast paced, easy and adventurous then you will enjoy The Boy Who Played with Dark Matter It was easy to continue flipping through the pages to quickly find what was around the corner There are no down points, and it s an easy flow not as choppy as The Sultan of Monte Cristo As earlier stated, this book could especially be recommended for young readers with a vivid sci fi imagination After he has put an ingenious closure to the 19th century classic The Count of Monte Cristo with his The Sultan of Monte Cristo and penning its sequel That Girl Started Her Own Country, the ever mysterious Holy Ghost Writer added another one to his array of great works The Boy Who Played With Dark Matter.The story is set in the year 2099 a time when the world is ruled over by one central International Government which changes the laws every single day The world is, in year 2099, completely After he has put an ingenious closure to the 19th century classic The Count of Monte Cristo with his The Sultan of Monte Cristo and penning its sequel That Girl Started Her Own Country, the ever mysterious Holy Ghost Writer added another one to his array of great works The Boy Who Played With Dark Matter.The story is set in the year 2099 a time when the world is ruled over by one central International Government which changes the laws every single day The world is, in year 2099, completely different than the world we live in today overpolluted, exploited, very unlawful government Then there goes Zeddy, a six year old boy with an exceptional IQ, run off on an adventure in search of his father, Zane, who mysteriously went missing after a loud crash of thunder Along with the little protagonist is his mother, Zadie Prior to his quest, Zeddy learns that there is somethingabout his parents and the world than he ever knew His father has traveled greatly to the extent that he also has come to travel a distant world As in the title, there is this dark matter going on through the story.This book has a little Harry Potter science fiction vibe in it Aside from witches and wizards, Zeddy also encounters an alien and other strange creatures including the one they call zutterfly , a little dark butterfly from a distant planet Like the other two books by Holy Ghost Writer that I also reviewed, The Boy Who Played With Dark Matter is a juicy piece of adventure, action, suspense, and the author s signature taste of mystery I think the pictured International Government in the story is completely creepy, nevertheless not impossible especially that there s this what they call New World Order Search it up This book is a great read I must say I m just a little puzzled on how this one is related to The Sultan of Monte Cristo and That Girl Started Her Own Country But Holy Ghost Writer is always unpredictable and full of surprises perhaps we ll all see the connection in his next book
