Book Review: High Tech/Low Life

Title: High Tech/Low Life: An Easytown Novels Anthology

Author: Various

Narrator: Michael Soma, Samantha Vega




Easytown is the city of a thousand stories; tales of betrayed trusts, tarnished virtues, easily obtained vices, and street justice are common.

Treat yourself to a glimpse into the dark future world of New Orleans, where humanity’s base desires have overshadowed common decency, and very few are willing to stand in the way. With 10 stories by seven well-known independent authors, High Tech/Low Life is guaranteed to please.

It’s a gritty world, full of murky choices where the line between good and evil is smeared with blood. Welcome to Easytown.

With stories by Martin Allen, Chris Philbrook, Valerie Lioudis, Joseph Hansen, C.T. Phipps, J.B. Havens, and Brian Parker.



My Review

4/5 Stars

Solid collection of cyberpunk short stories.

Set in the world of Easytown, it was interesting to see just how people coped in the futuristic society. Though I haven’t read the original Easytown novels, I am tempted to after seeing what this collection had to offer.

Narration was well done by the male narrator, but the female narrator had points where it was difficult to understand/hear her.

This book was given to me for free at my request and I provided this voluntary review.

Proud author responsible for Dead by Morning and The Council, fascinated by the dark and macabre. Stephen King is her all time inspiration mixed in with a little bit of Eminem and some faint remnants of the works of Edgar Allen Poe. When she began writing, she started in horror but it somehow drifted into thriller. She loves the 1988 movie Heathers. She was born and raised in Michigan but traveled across the country to where she currently resides in Texas.
