Kurzbeschreibung

Jack is the most famous rock star in the world… he’s just not from this planet.

Before joining NASA’s space programme, Jack had dreams of a career as a professional musician. When a deep space mission goes awry, he crashes on an alien planet. Jack discovers that his new world is inhabited by a race of humans that have evolved in parallel to those on Earth. He picks up a guitar and performs the most wondrous rock songs of his home planet. Neil Young. Leonard Cohen. Bob Dylan. Superstardom beckons as audiences around the globe revere Jack and his apparent songwriting abilities. He basks in the boundless glow of a hedonistic dream world. But Jack soon learns that his lie will have sinister consequences.

This remarkable debut novel by renowned Australian entertainment journalist Nick Milligan, is a thrilling ride through a nightmarish, darkly comical and highly original tale that combines elements of horror, science fiction, music industry satire and erotica.

Enormity will weave a dark magic over you – even beyond its shocking conclusion.

*Complete Edition includes Part One, Part Two and Part Three as released exclusively Amazon*

5.0 von 5 Sternen Unique and exciting fiction 29. April 2014
Von Aussieguy - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
All I can say is: home run, Mister Milligan, home run. ENORMITY is genuinely hilarious, often scary, bizarre, consistently moving, sexy as hell, and packs one hell of a soundtrack. A unique combination of Bret Easton Ellis and Rolling Stones' most brutal exposés, ENORMITY just goes from strength to strength in its disturbing reach for the stars. And it's so aptly titled, too... Yes, it's enormous in scope, and yet somehow manages to capture the enormity of intimacy - the intimacy of a kiss, the intimacy of deceit. And the consequences of both. For those who like fiction drawn outside the box, this genre-bending read is highly recommended.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Amazing sci fi 18. Mai 2014
Von MKH - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
This story was so incredible, I started this review in my head when I was only 30% through. Amazingly done; the characters leap right off the page. I loved the way the flashbacks were done; although I started to get a bit confused toward the end, that could have been simply because I was reading so fast, dying to know what was going to happen next.
The twists are absolutely masterful. This entire book is perfectly done and was a complete, wonderful joy to read. I feel quite satisfied with the ending (that was in question for awhile!), and I really hope there's more to Jack's story.
Thank you, Mr Milligan for a wonderful addition to my favourites list.

5.0 von 5 Sternen A well written story with some interesting questions. 9. Mai 2014
Von Martin English (@Martin_English) - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
OK, there's some gratuitous sex scenes, but they DO have a place in a story that is, on the surface, about a wannabe / frustrated musician who gets to live out his dreams of being a rock star.

But underneath, there's also the story that is asking how far you'd go to save your self, your family, your planet.

A well written story with some interesting questions. And it was nice to see the local (Australian) references :)

5.0 von 5 Sternen What A Head Trip!!! 12. Mai 2014
Von Richard The Buying Hearted - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
I like this Nick Milligan whoever he is. He slides you sideways into this science fiction story by first making you live the insiders realm of being a world wide Music sensation by putting you in the skin of the titular leader of a band to die for (literally). I have never read a novel of any genre quite like this and I have to admit I was bemused and then confused and then slowly drawn into the intricate world he creates with all the human foibles we all harbor on display and brilliantly woven into the context of this superlative sci-fi tale. Be warned this is adult science fiction and he allows you the full debauchery in which you imagine Singers and Bands indulge themselves quite graphically at times. The drugs...the booze...the women...they are prominent thoughout but key to the story, I'll hand him that. And the backstory is filled in slowly and inexorably leading up to a conclusion that doesn't shy away from the probable reality as it would be in the circumstances. I wound up truly amazed at what he pulled off in the end. I can't wait to read something from him again. I promise you this is the most original science fiction I've read since Martian Chronicles. If he can keep up the quality in his works form here on out we may have another giant on our hands.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Enormity 16. Juni 2014
Von Dan - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
It's my first read for this Author ( Nick Milligan ).. I've enjoyed Sci-Fi since I got my first library card. 1950. That card was my best friend. This book was unlike any I've read before. Not that I read many reviews and never give one ( This is my first ) and like most blurbs I have seen, I'm saying that it was hard to put down. And that I wished it was much longer.
The characters seemed to hold up their hands to be noticed and remembered. The 'bad' guys were never that bad with a few exceptions.. The planet Heaven was really appealing and unusual as far as the lack of violence. I liked reading this and never had to confront the standard 'plot' most novels have because it tended to 'refresh' with new situations pretty often. Always something new just around the corner. I wasn't ready for the end of the story, although i don't mean that in a bad way I just wanted more.. I have never wanted to write a book or a novel. I only wish that i could use words in the same way that Mr. Milligan used for Jack's conversations in the book... I really recommend this book for anybody except kids.
