TBR Featured Review

The most unique sci-fi novel I’ve read in years.

What happens when the world gets too optimized? Joel E. Lorentzen, the author, answers that question in his unique, inventive and thought-provoking novel, Proles - a novel about 2084. In the not too distant future, the gap between the have’s and the have nots is as wide as it has ever been, but not for the reason you may think.

 Book I Synopsis: The Suburbs of Hell

Bly is dead. Her soul is encapsulated within a shell that bears a striking resemblance to her earthly form. In the waiting room of Hell, a top demon named Demetri assigns her to a less than tormenting eternity in the Suburbs of Hell. There is only one golden rule... no talking, sharing, praising, or thinking about God. The suburb is perfectly quaint without want or need for anything, including a cottagy bungalow in which she is assigned. Bly meets many of her neighbors and becomes particularly close to David who was a British Army Chaplain and died during the Korean War. Bly and David are quick to fall in love and break the one golden rule. With spies everywhere, they plot their escape from the Suburbs of Hell.

Book II Synopsis: Hell Metropolis

Bly and David race through all the areas of Hell which are a labyrinth of religious folklore and customized punishments. Hell tests their love and faith as Bly and David’s souls spiral agonizingly into madness as they fight their way back to the Waiting Room.

Book III Synopsis: TBD

Bly and David find themselves back on Earth as spirits where they experience the physical world as observers. They meet ghosts, angels, and work very hard to avoid demons who are aggressively hunting them including a vicious and merciless bounty hunter. Bly and David stumble through massive quantities of religious dogma running towards Heaven.
