Gatc’hh’en’s Rite – by John Talisker – Book Review
This is a captivating story about a living being that is half machine. Gatc’hh’en isn’t from earth, so he studies the way which humans are like. He uses a template of a human’s DNA and forms into a person.
The setting of the story is in the 15th century located in France where he falls in love with a woman named Catherine. He loses her due to unforeseen circumstances, and this takes a great emotional toll on him. Gatc’hh’en runs away to the outer solar system to retrieve what’s left of him and to heal from this devastating loss.
After Gatc’hh’en regains some strength and mental stability, he returns back determined to reclaim what he lost. He finds a woman named Emily and genetically modifies her looks to what Catherine used to appear as. Emily is on her dying bed and most certainly appreciates the new life she has been given, however, as always, everything comes with a price and Gatc’hh’en has to deal with this problem.
The story is written with a philosophical touch. There are many terminologies and mentions to this topic blended into the story. The tale also references astrology and similar out of space phrasings. I found Gatc’hh’en to be very appealing. His character was well built, and although he is not human, he was relatable. All that Gatc’hh’en wants to do is to go home with the woman he loved which is very touching.
I believe that there was enough backstory for a sequel to this story. Gatc’hh’en’s Rite is in fact, his rite of passage. I really appreciated all insinuations to life and the value of living within the story. By the end of reading the book, you will defiantly be able to sense love, loss and more knowledge toward galaxies, the stars, and planets around.
I highly recommend this book to people that want to read something more in depth in the science fiction genre.
