    Gripping

    What an excellent book. Gritty, combination of mystery, supernatural, and part detective novel, Big Machine had me flipping pages in suspense, while also laughing hysterically at some points. Big Machine kind of reminds me of a Walter Mosley Easy Rawlings tale, just set in more current times. I am bookmarking this author as a must-read!

    Unique voice

    Thoroughly enjoyed this book. The lens through which narrator views the mad world of the story is quite unique. Bold writing that doesn't pull punches or shy away from difficult subjects. Big ideas delivered with subtlety and a graceful style. A little crazy -- which I like. We need more deliberate, intelligent glimpses at what's called crazy.

    I had a lot of difficulty reading this book. What the hell is it

    I had a lot of difficulty reading this book. What the hell is it about? I've read thousands and thousands of books and only given up on few. I almost gave up on this one. I'm still not sure why I finished it. It was not an inspiring read by any means.

    Odd Book but still wold recommend

    The "Big Machine" is a powerful book. There are parts that still come to mind and I have to stop and think about it a little bit more. I have no idea how to describe this book other than biblical. It would interesting to see what others think about this description. There were times that I got so lost I couldn't unravel where I was unless I thought about biblical stories.

    This is a very entertaining book.

    I love Vistor's writing style. He is a natural born writer. You can tell by his writing that he sees life as a series of stories. I imagine he is a very interesting person to spend time with.

    If you decide to read this book and I think you should. Please don't put the book in a catagory until you are finished. There are parts still make me think it's a mystery. There are other parts that want me to put it in just a general fiction catagory. But that would be too confining. You need to see for yourself where you would place this book.

    Very interesting, good read.

    This book had so many surprises it kept me entertained the entire time. You would never have thought by reading the beginning of it how it would end or that it was even science fiction. Highly recommend this book.
