Review: THE EIGHTH DAY by Joseph John

We begin in NYC 2041. Shawn Jaffe has just received a strange message from a vagrant: “They’re watching you. Nothing you know is real.” He tells him that his name isn’t Shawn Jaffe. What? But before the mystery man could explain, he winds up dead.

Confusion and paranoia consume our main character as he stumbles into a cryptic paradox of unusual events and unanswered questions. Activate Delta? Was he some kind of Terminator with a chip in his head? How do you erase someone’s existence in a day?

As we delve deeper and deeper, it gets more and more complicated. And although the political and technological angle didn’t really interest me as much, story was crafted and executed well.

It’s good if you have the time to try to understand it.

My rating: 3.5 stars
