2022 (Percipience Book 1)2022 by Ken Kroes

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Overall I feel this book is a worthwhile read. The characters are fairly well developed, at least enough that they don’t feel like cardboard cutouts and each feels like their own mind. The plot is unique and well crafted. The story is intriguing which adds to the worthwhile-ness of the read. I don’t like the format as it gives the book a rough draft feel. The book could use an editor to fix the minor mistakes in grammar and punctuation. Otherwise this is a fresh view on an important issue wrapped up in a mystery suspense thriller with a dash of sci-fi. Kroes has a good grasp of what makes a good story. I received an ARC in exchange for an honest review. This in no way influenced my opinion.


Book loving single mother to a wonderful special needs child who fills my life with adventures, excitement, love and innocence.

    1. I’d give it a try. I’m a stickler for grammar and punctuation but even with those issues it’s not a bad read. If you enjoy it, or dislike it, feel free to post your opinion. It’s always great to get more than one opinion on a book. What is a wonderful read to one person is a terrible experience for another.

      1. Sometimes it’s worth setting aside the lack of perfection and just enjoying the story, even when the inner brain is screaming at every noticeable mistake.

      2. Yes! I’ve been there! I have tried to read several books that had the inner brain screaming but when the outer brain chimes in, the book gets tossed to the DNF pile. Some people don’t seem to mind. I suppose I notice more since my major is English Language.

      3. I don’t even have the excuse of majoring in English. I just see grammar and punctuation errors, and start to twitch. LOL. I review a lot for Indie Authors, and I don’t even know how many times I’ve sent the “Erm… have you had this edited? Because it needs it” email.


      4. Yes, I’ve sent many of those sorts of emails. Sometimes I try to be specific, other times I suggest having someone read it out loud. Other times I just direct them towards the steps in production, which includes several editing steps. It’s great that so many budding authors want to get their stories out, but the ones that don’t take the time to review and edit ruin it for those who do.
