The Perihelion by David Wozniak (Book Review #154)

This review was kindly requested by David Wozniak.

The Perihelion is a science fiction story set in the future. The year is 2069, and the perihelion is about to happen. Chicago is now called Bluecore 1C. There are six protagonists, each with their own story and path striving towards salvation. Humans are hybrids of 99% human DNA and 1% animal (99ers). The world is set in a high-tech form of drones, cabs driven by computers, embedded IDs, futuristic weapons and more.

– Merriam-Webster Dictionary

Someone wishes to kill particular 99ers, and the people who were investigating why, become hunted. The six character’s destinations all blend to each other, building up this rewarding finale that actually leaves you satisfied.


The book’s layout is sectioned off with each character’s perspective, taking turns. The backstory, history, emotions, personality and everything you need to know about the characters are provided in a fascinating way. I initially thought that I would forget about the first character by the time I had read about the 6th but somehow, the author had managed to keep the information related enough, for me to not lose the flow.

The layout and plot were exquisite. Everything had been researched in a proper manor, and there were no lope holes or questions unanswered to annoy the reader. The literary standard was outstanding, and the novel was delightful for my taste.

I recommend this book to anyone that is a science fiction fan and likes to read on futuristic world settings.
