I have read and reviewed Benedict Martin’s previous book “Charlie Robot.” Although this is not my normal genre I very much enjoyed his writing, and was eager to download the latest story “Planet Purgatory.”
I was not disappointed. “Planet Purgatory” opens up an imaginary world that transports you from reality in the very best way. Benedict Martin has a style of writing that allows you to visualise the places, people and creatures. He also shows his diverse talent by including detailed pictures of the characters throughout the book.
The main character David has human flaws, secrets and weaknesses. He travels in search of help to save Harkness, its occupants and his family. The journey keeps the reader turning the pages, while he introduces a variety of otherworldly creatures often with humour and sometimes even a little sadness.
Benedict Martin has a unique writing style. His imagination, his quality presentation, and his ability to transport the reader to another world make his work definitely worth a look. I would highly recommend this well-paced story to any reader wanting to escape to another world.
I look forward to reading his next book.
