A Review on Zero History by Karthik Balakrishnan
Zero History is a novel based on Hollis Henry, a famous singer for The Curfew and how her life becomes rather unhappy after an economy downturn. The novel traces the difficulties Hollis faces since her souvenirs from the Curfew are not enough to support her, and she tries to find a job as a journalist. The main events start to happen when Hollis has to encounter Bigend, a major villain in the global marketing industry. He transforms Milgrim by changing out his blood because he was high on drugs, and Milgrim is a useful person for Bigend as well since he is mostly unconspicuous. The novel goes on to describe how Bigend uses Milgrim and Hollis to get hold of the global marketing sector once again since a new villain has risen to power in the global marketing sector.
This book is perfect for teenagers and adults who love a spine-bending thriller novel. The novel has a suspenseful nature throughout. Once you start reading the novel, it is hard to put down. If you are interested in reading novels with a futuristic twist, this is the novel for you. The novel is also part of a series, therefore its a good introduction to what one can expect in the other stories written by Gibson, which are listed in the cover.
