Interpretation is a dystopian science fiction novel about Carl Winston. He has a son, Liam whom he adores. Everything seems to be going as normal until Carl takes his annual government test. His answers are considered as flawed, and that becomes a problem. This is when the story takes an interesting turn. Carl is separated from his son, and the story is unraveled with many dark secrets and hardship in understanding the truth behind it all.
The government appears to be the owners, and the people are the creations. In this dystopian world human emotion, hope and dreams are interpreted differently. This twisted and very novel story takes you on a journey where you don’t really wish to go. It constantly makes you think, what if this was true and what if it happened now?
I particularly liked the father-son relationship between Carl and Liam. The added romance was also very pleasing. Eva and Carl’s connection was a nice additional touch in this simulated cold environment of mind control. The storytelling had a very intriguing psychological touch. Being controlled and having your mindset so strongly by others in such a way that you are not able to even distinguish reality from being manipulated, was written in such a professional way.
The story had no flaws, and the literature standard exceeded my expectations. I truly think this is one of the best science fiction novels I have read. I look forward to reading more from this author.
