    One thought on “Damaged Good”

    1. Very much a book of two halves.The first half introduces a futuristic, cyber-punky world of "mods" (augmented humans) and synthetic humanoids; grizzled-cop interrogations, chases and plasma-bolt inflected action sequences.In short, it's entertaining and fast paced; the humour-inflected personality of the author's "voice" really helps things along.In addition, the book's only really interesting character – Celia (featured on the cover) – makes for a worthy diversion and the book's chance to d [...]

    2. I enjoyed this book.The author created an interesting cast of characters with a dash of humour.I typically don't read this genre but i found the story engaging and entertaining.I really enjoyed the snarky wit.I received a copy of this book from the author in exchange for an honest review.

    3. This book was phenomenal. It was well thought out and engaging, no matter which character's perspective I read from I was completely immersed in the story. It has been a long time since I've had the time or the desire to read, but this book brought back my love for reading. It was hard to put down, I was invested in what happened to everyone, and I actually cared. This is one of the few books I've read - if not the only one - that when reading I was engrossed in the moment, and my eyes were not [...]

    4. "Damaged Good" comes from a near future LA where the line between technology and the living is being blurred. A cynical cop comes against a brutal assassin with only a child-like synth witness at his side. The more secrets he uncovers the more he questions reality. A great story in a familiar and yet foreign world with a final chill down your spine at the end.My copy was a gift through First Reads.

    5. Perhaps the most refreshing thing about this book is that it's not only thrilling; it's also emotional and driven by interesting and unique characters and its cracks and crevices are filled in with exquisite moments.A gritty, flesh and bones cop, in a punishing mechanized world. I loved the feel of it. The read gets better and better as you go.This book surprised me. Pick it up.

    6. This was a fun piece of science fiction. It didn't examine what it means to be human, as many of the AI sub genre do. It was simply a good, twisty thriller with lots of chases and explosions. It's a cop story so that's to be expected.

    7. Love the cover art. Enjoyed the first half of the book; it was action packed, world building & humorous. The rest of the book shifted more into the serious, horror, tragedy territory.

    8. AI gets her own backReally enjoyed this take on the police partnership buddy story. Very interesting ideas and world Looking forward to reading the next installment.

    9. Damaged Good by J.E. Mac is a smart, edgy look at a cybernetic future that contains the promises of tech along with the pitfalls of greed. If you’re a fan of the movie A.I. or the short-lived TV show Being Human, Mac’s novel will make you think of them – in a good way. But even if you’ve never seen either, you can't help but get caught up in the plot and lives of Cutter and Celia. Mac does a terrific job with setting, dialog, and character, but most of all with giving you a story that yo [...]
