    Teleport by Kevin Berry is a Kindle Scout book I won. It is a fun read and the science was pretty fun. He does refer to things in the future that is here now that certainly won't be there then, but who knows? It is worth the read just for the fun of it.

    I wish this bland book would've had a different title before I dove in. Something more appropriate. Like Telebore. Yeah; that'd be a whole lot better! Anyway, it took a little over three months to finish this—and it's all because the damn thing was/is crazy boring. Starting and stopping just came with the territory. For real, though, I quite like that title of Telebore instead of Teleport. You should, too. So if anyone's currently hiring for some proper novel naming, come see me. I'm available and ready to distribute...

    I received a free ecopy from the Kindle Scout program in exchange for an honest review.In a future world, all of the people of the world have been divided in one of four castes. The Patrons rule their territories with absolute authority. The Admins and the Creatives are the next group. The Admins run the territories for the Patron while the Creatives are the scientists. The Supported is the next level. They are basically the few blue collar workers left since most menial jobs are done by robots. Finally there is the Underclass which is made up of those unable or unwilling to work. Maddie McLeod is a Creative that has been tasked the nearly impossible goal of making a working teleport system for her Patron. Her success could make or break the future of her brillant daughter, Cassie. But as her experiments run into problems, Cassie's behavior seems to be unraveling and the Patron is getting impatient. Maddie will have to make some desperate decisions to make it through to her goals.This story has several layers to it. Some are quite subtle and can be easily overlooked. Some of these layers work well in helping develop the story and this future world while others seem to be either unnecessary or confuse the issue. The main story of Maddie and the teleporter is fairly straighforward and works well. The premise is good and the story flows well with a mix of suspense and action. There are a few twists that should catch most people off guard. As for those layers, the romantic element came quite late in the story. It seemed awkward, both in its timing and how it was handled. It didn't really add to the story as far as I was concerned. It is obvious that the author put a lot of thought into the setting of this story. There are clues, sometimes fairly small, that help to build the world. One example is there is a brief comment that is a day that Maddie has a water allowance enough to take a shower. Obviously, clean water has become scarcer in the future. I really appreciated the take that simulated food is preferable because of the amount of pollution. A big element of the story is the caste system. Frequently is pointed out how the lower castes are envious of the upper classes. In fact, most of the higher classes see the lower castes as potentially dangerous whenever they are near. One scene that stood out for me was when Maddie ends up in an area that the Underclass live, She is amazed that it looks like a regular neighborhood with stores theaters, and places to eat. I am sure the author was trying to show that the Underclass were just normal people and should be treated as such. But the problem was that he also kept implying they were living in abject poverty with no clue as to where their next meal would come from. The area was also described as lawless where the police wouldn't dare to go. It defintely sent a mixed message at times.Therefore, I would say the main story worked and was a decent read. The world was was well thought out but could have been explored more to help establish it to the readers.

    Is advancement really the best idea?????From the very first chapter till the end I was enraptured and the ending left me hungry for the next book.The characters are relatable and have unique personalities and even the few I disliked were written in such a way that they were not supposed to be loved. The only thing I felt was a bit odd was when the author brought in romantic interests. They felt a bit forced in my opinion and weren't really necessary to the story maybe they will be if there is another book.I received this after nominating it on kindle scout and it being selected for publication

    I received this book for free from Kindle Scout in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.I've never actually read a book based solely on making a teleportation device as the main plot, so this was a ride inside a new experience. But there are huge loads of information that I personally felt were information dumps, and it went all over my head every time a character explained what was going on to another character. Nearly half the book is focused on creating the teleportation device or testing (and more testing) - those looking for a fast-paced book will find Teleport to be slow at first, but things do pick up later on as the book progresses.Sometimes I come across books that have unnecessary romance (a lot of them have it as a nice touch), but Teleport felt really unnecessary and forced. I felt like Berry was trying to get a romance angle into the story when the story was doing fine without that angle.Teleport was interesting and all, but there were some things that just didn't work out.This review was originally posted on Bookwyrming Thoughts

    The beginning of this book was a bit tedious and I wasn't certain I'd like it. As I read further, it became more exciting, although some of the events that happened were obvious (at least to me). It does have some good twists, as well, however. My biggest complaint is that the tense isn't consistent. From time to time, it switches from past tense to present.. In all, it was entertaining.I received a copy of this book through the Kindle Scout program.

    I'm not a fan of over-the-top sci-fi. I like my sci-fi to be set in an environment that I can imagine on the fly and not have to slow down or stop reading to figure out. This book definitely fills that order.The characters are likable and the science is reasonably believable, so I enjoyed this book. I wouldn't call it particularly memorable, but certainly entertaining.

    Interesting theoryIt had a pretty good storyline, and it was pretty interesting. I didn't approve of some relationship ideas provided in this book.

    Sci-Fi isn't normally the genre I choose to read, but this one had enough 'thriller' in it to keep me reading. Error free text and an interesting story. Worth a read.
