Book Review – Lament For The Fallen

by Gavin Chait (Doubleday) ISBN: 9780857523761

The man’s name is Samara and he has managed to escape his planet where he was imprisoned. He wants to go back to release the other prisoners from a world that is similar to the kind of world modern man is progressing towards, yet it has its failings.

One of the biggest drawbacks of this story is that the characters are not fleshed out enough and I felt no real connection with any of them.

Chait was born in Cape Town and later emigrated to the UK. He has degrees in Microbiology & Biochemistry, and Electrical Engineering. This is his first novel.
