The Gold Slaves - J W Northrup This book sounded so interesting, but in truth, it's pretty much a complete letdown. First, the Kindle edition currently on Amazon is only the first two chapters; what sort of marketing decision is that? The full book isn't anywhere to be found. Secondly, the author has a very individualized style that really needs more story to see if it develops into something more coherent. As it stands, I can live without reading the words "brain" or "brainology" again until well into the next millennium. I get the feeling that the author is trying for a bizarro fiction or Vonnegutian feel to the story. Again, there's not nearly enough story development in this excerpt.Please note that I did NOT download the sample; the book was offered as a freeborn in this manner.
