Review

★★★★

Extinction 6 by Hosein Kouros-Mehr is a very well-written dystopian read that highlights one of the most serious issues that threatens the entire planet.

First off, the book was a fantastic read – it was equal parts enjoyable, interesting and thought-provoking. Once I started the book, I was easily able to flow through the pages at a very fast speed which says a lot about the smooth flow of the writing and the simple yet effective use of the language. The plot progression was good and the pacing decent.

I liked the characterization, though I wasn’t able to overly connect or relate to the protagonist. Still, I enjoyed the story enough to not have a big problem with it and overall it was a very good read.

I enjoyed the book right until the very end and want to keep exploring more titles by the author. I’d recommend this book to all dystopian and sci-fi reads and to those who take a special interest in the main subject – climate change.

Review

★★★+1/2

Project Bodi by Hosein Kouros-Mehr is a unique science-fiction book that not only tells a story but also imparts knowledge of subjects not commonly talked about.

Despite being a high-tech science fiction book, I liked the reliability of it to the real world. Science fiction books that have their roots in the reality of the real world are always very strong, and this book was exactly that. The author did a great job describing and explaining and even in spreading awareness about subjects like mental peace, meditation, finding the inner self and gaining knowledge by exploring the real capabilities of the mind.

The writing was another plus as I enjoyed the flow of the words that were both simple and effective. The plot development was good and the overall story progression was smooth.

I enjoyed reading it and would recommend it to anyone who wants to read a science-fiction book with a heady twist.
