Lee Matthew Goldberg, the author of “Orange City” has written a unique and powerful novel about a dystopian world. (shown within a city) The genres are Science Fiction, Mystery, Suspense, and Fiction. Many people who have committed crimes in the outside world are sent to this unusual city. They get a job, a place to live, but they can’t leave. The author describes his characters as quirky, strange, complex and complicated. If anyone distrusts the leader, known as “The Man” they can be ousted to Empty Zones.
Graham Weatherend is given a special job to promote a new client. This client has canned beverages, and calls them Pow Sodas. Graham first tastes the orange flavor, and his world is a “passion” of orange. Graham notices strange things and people. Graham is soon to start on other flavors. There seems to be a mystery of what the ingredients are. Each colored flavored drink causes Graham to become extremely moody and filled with questions. He realizes that he is trapped in a prison of sorts. Does he want to escape? Can he escape? This is an edgy and thought-provoking novel, which is the first on the series. I would recommend this book for those who enjoy unusual stories.
