    One thought on “A Perfect Machine”

    1. A really interesting story. This book is best described as a long short story in that it is very focused on a single event, the transformation and acension of Henry Kyllo. The story is really about immersion in the experience as it happens over a 24 hour period, not so much about in-depth character development or world building. Probably this one would be enjoyed more by fans of short fiction and the way stories are told in that format rather than by readers who like more expansive novels.The co [...]

    2. I had two concurrent thoughts upon finishing this book. 1) That was a shit ending. 2) I wasted six days reading this thing? Honestly, I should have DNF'd this quite a while back as it was becoming clear the book just was not working for me, a feeling that grew all the stronger by the 85% mark, but by then I figured I may as well finish it. This was a poor choice, as it became awfully clear that Brett Savory had no idea how to end this book and I would have been better off setting the book down e [...]

    3. Disclaimer: I recived a copy of this via netgalley for an honest review.Im gonna start of by saying this is the first book i have ever did not finish i got 150 pages in.I could not get into this it was confusing and strange. I would not recommend this.

    4. Thank you to Netgalley and the publisher for an ARC.I am having so much trouble getting my thoughts in order regarding this book.I didn't like it.There was just soooooo much unexplained and more than a few plot holes. In the opening scene of the book the MC, Henry, is in the hospital after just getting shot up. Because that's what he does every night. He runs away from people trying to shoot him. Why? **shrugs** I dunno. 'Cause reasons and stuff. Reasons and stuff that were never actually explai [...]

    5. Hits the ground running and just doesn't stop! A unique and original story, like nothing I've read before. The usual Sci-Fi cliches are avoided and it kept surprising me, I found that I couldn't predict anything that was going to happen. Unfortunately that was partly because it gives no answers to the many questions it raises. What the hunt is for, who controls it, why the runners can recover from major injuries, why they are not really human - none of these are explained. If the answers were th [...]

    6. Netgalley copy in exchange for an honest review.A fair warning: be prepared to get sucked into this story from the moment you start reading, because you won’t be able to put your book down. This is what happened to me.This book is incredibly good, on every level, in my opinion.Plot __ The plot is very original, and I found the main idea behind the story to be very different and innovative, which is always a good thing for me. If you love science-fiction, this book will be right up your ally. T [...]

    7. Well, that wasweird. To be honest, I would expect nothing less from a story that escaped the moist thing in Brett Savory's skull. If you read In and Down, you know what I'm talking about.But this novel is a completely different okay, I was going to say different animal, but that's not right.etely different machine. The novel is long on action, and quite frankly, this is where the book sings. The reader is thrown into it at the beginning, then for an extended period toward the last third of the n [...]

    8. What worked for me in this book were the visceral reactions the author creates in the reader. The first chapter had me squirming, thinking of all those bullets under Henry's flesh. We bear witness to the synthesis of man and machine - for the most part a physical transformation - yet you can't help but hearing throughout in the back of your head a sotto voce voice suggesting that perhaps all this technology in our non-fiction world is doing the same thing to our collective cultural mind. The cer [...]

    9. Brett Savory is best known for his short horror fiction, so it’s no surprise that his first novel,A Perfect Machine, concerns itself with secret societies, aberrant rituals and the implacable erosion of one man’s humanity. But despite the horror undercurrent, A Perfect Machine doesn’t sit easily in any established genre. The novel is neither horror nor fantasy, nor is it a simple hybrid of existing genres. It arguably leans toward magical realism but the supernatural aspects have an indust [...]

    10. A interesting book about a Runner Henry Kullo who has to run every night and is shot at time after time interesting as he is a member of a secret society called the Inferne Curtis, who goal is to achieve full body lead content interesting story .

    11. I've done a proper review that's up on the Grimdark Magazine blog, but that review is aimed only at grimdark fiction fans. Therefore, I'll keep this really short, since the review on the blog is fairly comprehensive. In other words I won't touch on the plot or characters: I've done all that in the blog review. In short, I don't think it's a book that will appeal to grimdark readers, but it has other merits that will warrant a look for readers looking for a read that's more experimental and bound [...]

    12. It’s very much like Maze Runner but the runners aren’t kids and their respective hunters are fellow humans who shoot the crap out of each other. The protagonist, Henry Kyllo, more often than not finds himself waking up in the hospital than in his own bed – being treated for his various gunshot wounds is also the only time when he gets to see his girlfriend, Faye. Luckily for Faye she’s unaware of Henry’s nightly activities and rightly so because after each ‘reincarnation’ (so to sa [...]

    13. There was quite a bit that I didn’t like about The Perfect Machine. Angry Robot Books is usually a safe bet, and when I saw this on NetGalley, it looked promising, but I guess not all books can be great books.There is a lot of head-hopping going on in this story. In one sentence, a character is revealing their thoughts, and in the next, a completely different character is revealing their thoughts. Third person omniscient point of view isn’t a bad thing, but authors rarely pull it off well. I [...]

    14. *Free copy for an honest review.This book, short as is it is, had a lot of potential. Unfortunately, I don't feel it met that, and fell far short of my expectations for it. Maybe I was asking too much of it, but I was disappointed by this book.The author does make me feel emotionally connected to the three main characters, he's done a great job of getting me interested in their story. I was genuinely concerned for Henry's sanity and Milo's sake. I was happy to read this book out of interest in t [...]

    15. A PERFECT MACHINE by Brett Savory, jumps right into the life of Henry Kyllo, a Runner, in the alternate world where every night he is chased by Hunters, who constantly fill his body with bullets, only for Henry to miraculously and quickly heal up and be ready for his next run. There is a mystic and reverent quality to the whole process, with Henry and the other Runners suspecting there is a larger purpose, though none of them have the real desire to inquire further. Savory drops the reader right [...]

    16. I received an ARC of this through NetGalley and Angry Robot in exchange for an honest review.The setup to this novel is a good one. Henry Kyllo has to play a game every night where he runs through the city while Hunters are shooting at him. Since he is a Runner, he wants to get hit with bullets that he keeps because there is a rumor that when you get to full body content, you transform into a complete machine. This is a really cool premise, and there are so many things that Brett Savory could ha [...]

    17. A Perfect Machine is a frantic bag of crazy. The very first paragraph finds main character Henry Kyllo running through the streets while being shot up by a group of ‘hunters’. But fear not, you see, Henry is part of a secret society called the Inferne Cutis, and one of the perks of being a member of that group is that you become tougher than the two-dollar steaks my mom used to buy. By the next day, Henry is right-as-rain…mostly. Even though his wounds have healed, the bullets (namely, the [...]

    18. Received a copy of this through NetGalley where you are asked for your honest opinions.I was excited by the premise and the set up for - secret societies with special powers, shunned individuals, hidden power, the fulfilment of a "prophecy, transformation, etc. These are all elements for a classic tale.I don't want to discuss the details of these plot points for fear of spoilers but the idea of people with special abilities who are forced by a curse/force to use those abilities or face terrible [...]

    19. This one's been a fast and furious read for me. Immersive, devilishly clever hooks, fascinating build up, the pacing is like an anti aircraft gun gone rogue on auto mode and the characters and setting is intriguing as hell. but the last few chapters were a huge letdown. Longer review closer to release date.

    20. This review originally published in Looking For a Good Book. Rated 3.0 of 5Huh.I really liked this one and then I didn't.Henry Kyllo is a Runner a member of a secret society that runs information to and from different locations. But Runners have to pass through a city filled with Hunters. The Hunters shoot the Runners. The Runners fill up with the lead from the Hunters' guns. The hope - the dream - of the Runners is to fill with enough lead that they reach Ascendency - to become a perfect mach [...]

    21. While I was reading this I was put in mind of William Gibson and maybe a bit of Bladerunner. It's a dark, contemporary (or near future) science fiction novel with a bit of mystery thrown into the mix. Savory has an easy to follow voice and it was a pleasurable read. I quite enjoyed it until the very end. Without spoiling anything, I found the ending hard to believe. I just don't see how it's physically possible without a little more explanation. That said, it was overall enjoyable and I would re [...]

    22. Couldn't finish. The first few chapters, the ones available for free on or whatever, were nice and intriguing. But when you get the book and read further on, the story is bland. Nothing special. With the sort world-building or plots that are easily forgotten or become hollywood movies featuring mediocre white men. A man that must save his family is such a snore and repetitive story for me, apparently. They'd fit right in with Hollywood, nothing that would really make you think or cause surprise [...]

    23. Well, I finished it. I started skimming/speedreading after a while though. I couldn't bring myself to care about the characters. But it was an original plot so I figured I'd keep going through the book to find out why - why do people meeting the runners/hunters forget contact, who makes their family/friends disappear, what are the other universes about. Unfortunately, the book doesn't answer any of these questions. The only thing we learn is what ascendency is.If this was a short story, I wouldn [...]

    24. This is such an original science fiction book. Honestly, can't say I've ever come across a plot quite like this one. Mind- and genre-bending, full of action and some major concepts, not least of which is "who's really pulling the strings here" and are they good or evil? Won't rehash the plot, suffice to say I really enjoyed this novel. Savory's got loads of talent and can build worlds, even ones as bizarre yet very familiar as this, with ease. If you're looking for sci-fi, with a story somewhat [...]

    25. I actually read this book because of so many negative reviews.The writing is excellent and the story is really interesting. But as many commented, no explanation of what is going on and why things are happening. I would have actually given this 4 stars as the story was still interesting enough to keep me interested but I really, really hated the ending. That totally didn't make any sense at all.

    26. Kind of hard to categorize this book. Horror would be my first thought. But "Surreal" - and I'm not sure if that counts as its own genre - feels closer. A Perfect Machine reminds me of those Tales From the Crypt styled comic books from the 1950s - eerie, spooky and disturbing.Like those comic books, A Perfect Machine is not character or plot driven (which most books are nowadays). It is tone driven. And Savory has definitely nailed the surreal tone.Want something different? Grab a copy of A Perf [...]

    27. Holy shit, this book is amazing!it starts strange, everything gets stranger and nothing is explained.I was a little worried when i started because the description sounded a lot like some distopian future/young adult pulp, but thats just the setup for a really strange story. There's a scene where a full metal coloss pulps a human body in a bathtub and the flushes it down to dispose of it :) amazing
