When most of the world inexplicably disappears overnight, only small patches of civilization remain. May and Isak live on what used to be Holly Street. Since the Event, however, they have found themselves totally isolated, surviving day to day on what they can find in their pantry and their memories. May thinks that everything is going fine: apart from Isak's weird disappearances and the humming only she can hear, they maintain a safe and secure existence surrounded by wasteland. Until one day, the phone rings... After the Event, the convenience store became Ed's home. Used to the busy life of a video game designer, the sudden lack of people and landscape around him is hard to deal with. Then, one day, he discovers that he can manipulate electronics using only his mind... Pinot and Miller are on the run. They wander through the wasteland looking for supplies or anything smashable. Driven by Miller's fear of retribution, they head west. Everything changes for Pinot when they come across an abandoned power station... An introspective story about survival, identity, and memory, The Patch Project explores the need for connection and purpose in a sterile post-apocalyptic world.… (mais)

I am not sure what I read. There were different mini stories about people after some catastrophic even and it was just very strange not to mention morbid. I am glad to see that some readers enjoyed the story; I apparently was missing something. ( )

In a vast sea of post apocalyptic books, this one takes a different course. Characters are fleshed out and we're not lost in the action part of the plot. The plot moves along but the characters aren't only reacting to new and horrifying situations, they are human and flawed, dealing with a side of life unimagined until now. ( )

I received a copy for free in return for my honest review, and it is my pleasure to provide one.

I enjoyed this post-apocalyptic novel, especially the interesting characters that I found myself caring about and rooting for almost immediately.

The story is character-driven, not action-driven, which is usually my preference. The characters are multi-dimensional, and the story evolves slowly and realistically (considering the subject) based on their experiences.

The ending was a little jarring, and not really an ending at all, so I was relieved to learn there is a sequel planned. I am curious to discover if the characters' discovery as to the cause of what has happened to them is true and see what happens to them next...

Overall, a strong first effort from this new writer.

Five stars on this author's debut novel. Recommended - and I'll look forward to reading more by this up-and-coming author. ( ) ( )

When I requested this book, I thought it was a SHTF book. I did not realize that it was a super-power SHTF book. This is not a genre I typically enjoy. Therefore, I will not be providing a review at this time. My apologies.

An interesting, though imperfect read. The Patch Project explores different groups of survivors in a post-apocalyptic America. The book voyages more into the fantasy than the dystopian with most survivors having some special power and a lingering sense that these powers are supposed to have some greater meaning.

The book gives glimpses of each person's story, though they are short and choppy. What we learn of the setting and the inner workings of the characters all come as one package and suffer the same sort of abruptness. Sometimes it works as a suspense mechanism, other times it just feels empty.

The characters themselves aren't quite as deep as the author tries to make them, but they are sufficiently interesting if not a little 'comic book-like.'

The pace of the story is rather slow, with the author spending time trying to build a relationship between the characters and the reader and sacrificing pace in the process. In general, it moved at a sufficient pace to keep me interested, but only just.

The broader story, and the basis of the near-extinction event is muddled and less realistic than most, and seemed to hint at an environmentalist agenda.

My biggest criticism is the ending. It isn't a cliffhanger, nor does it seem like a logical break (passage of time, paradigm shift of some sort) it just suddenly stops. You are left assuming that there is more to the story to come in future books, but in general you feel very unsatisfied.

I, personally, will probably pick the story up when the next installment comes, but the book does a marginal job of compelling the reader to do so.

All in all, this has the makings of an interesting, though not compelling, dystopian story. A good read for fans of either anti-future/dystopian genres or fantasy/sci-fi genres. As long as you can handle a slower pace, and thick character-introspective prose. ( )
