In Singularity Heights by Jay Solomon, readers are immersed in a potential, future New York where robots (bots) handle almost all aspects of daily life. Following the "Great War," surviving humans in the only remaining and habitable city developed a system that gives control of the livelihood, business, and enforcement of government laws to a population of bots that strictly follow rules established by humans in a far distant past. Humans no longer work and the two-percent "MoMos" enjoy a life of luxury and wealth over the impoverished ninety-eight percent "NoMos." The lives of Jaden, an "Einstein" among the underground rebellion and Sunny, a young woman struggling to survive, intertwine with DeShay, a congressman and multi-millionaire, to create a fascinating story.
Jay Solomon's writing style is lean, smooth, and fast-paced. His characters, bots, humans, and personal assistants, are carefully modeled to reflect realistic personalities. Though the scope of the story is huge, Solomon creates it in three parts that enable continuity while maintaining a fast pace by eliminating long explanatory passages that tend to drag a story down. From page one, I instantly established empathy, sympathy, like or dislike for each character as they were introduced. Sub-plots weave seamlessly throughout the main storyline to create a great reading experience with all the twists and turns of real life. Among dystopian science-fiction / thriller stories, I would rank Singularity Heights at the top of a shortlist that reflects our current world and what it might look like in the not-so-distant future. A fascinating and smart story written by a master and guaranteed to please all fans of these genres as well as those who simply enjoy a great story well told.
