    One thought on “The Pedestal

    1. Kim Franks

      Great read, very thought provoking I read another of this authors books last week(The Wandering Tree), and it was so great that I looked for more of his work. This one was totally different than last weeks, but just as well written and great.

      The premise of this novel will affect your Being to the core. A must read.While this novels storyline resides in the future, it's premise could equally represent the past ,present or future. If you aren't into books that give you the urge to read a part of the story again to get a clearer understanding of events; or storylines that require, not only your imagination but gray matter as well, then this isn't the book for you.More often than not you read a book and feel like you had just finished r [...]

      For anyone who cringed with worry the moment they first heard about the Google Glasses: this book's for you. Wilson Abby lives in the realistic future, where computers and smart phones have been shoved aside in favor of implanted technology. Conspiracy theorists are given ample time to rejoice; people have become part of a living, breathing internet where social networking takes life to a whole new level. It's every internet security specialist's nightmare. See, it's not completely secure. It ca [...]

      I grabbed this book as a Kindle freebie. The book takes you to unexpected places and it’s an enjoyable journey. Wimberley’s “The Pedestal” shows the potential evolution of our technological advances, which comically, can be destroyed by nature (well modified nature). Plausible? Yes, in a far-reaching way; but still should provide the reader a moment to reflect on our ‘advancement’.As a whole, Wilson Abby, the main character is a bit of a slacker and self-defeatist. His redeeming qual [...]

      The Pedestal, by Daniel Wimberley. A very original, thought-provoking futuristic novel. Computer nerds will enjoy the vision of a "Nexus" framework connected to everyone on earth via surgical implants. The Nexus provides a programmed response to each person's needs, whether physical, mental, emotional, or financial. Of course, this is what the future of life on earth could look like in a hundred years or so. However, Murphy's Law still exists, even in such a high-tech world.The main character is [...]

      So I read this book with enjoyment. While I was unsure if this was a mystery, a dystopian fiction, or even some insane romance novel, the story is very fluid and tends to follow a logical path towards its conclusion. No deus ex machina for the main character, Wilson Abby, whose naivete is rather irritating at times. But by then you are already invested in this normal man experiencing an amazing adventure.The book loses one star because the self narrative style sometimes desolves into ramblings a [...]

      Daniel Wimberley's The Pedestal is a realistic journey through an almost certain future inhabited by the human animal as a collective "super-community."Beneath the shiny millennial façade of the perfect world hides the unquenchable thirst for excess. Wimberley explores the do-anything-for-more mentality we see exhibited by today's youth mutated into the now-anything-is-possible world of tomorrow. The consequences are a slippery slope of failed security, conspiracy, murder, and the prospect of h [...]

      I won this novel in a drawing.This is an entertaining, but disjointed sci-fi novels, featuring not one, but two dystopias.The novel starts out with everybody connected to the internet by a computer implant. The protagonist stumbles onto a conspiracy, and tries to unravel it. He is forced to flee to Mars. Then the other dystopia. Plants bred on Mars make their way to Earth, take over,and civilization falls. It seems as if the author had two stories and tried to meld them together, by linking the [...]
