The BookViral Review:
Exerting a fascination that demands attention even as you want to turn away from it The Intelligence Factor proves an intriguing debut for Logsdon and it’s a difficult book to put down.
Hitting you square between the eyes and lingering in your thoughts once finished Logsdon’s writing is tense and earnest as he weaves a graphic tale of emotional complexity in a painfully plausible near dystopian future. Congress has introduced the Morality Act where numerous offences are punishable by lobotomies. The internet, publishing and entertainment industries are being heavily censored and death games have been introduced.
Perhaps the greatest hurdle when writing a novel like The Intelligence Factor is the problem of incident but Logsdon has comfortably incorporated his dark imaginings into the fabric of his narrative without any lose threads. This isn’t a future USA that’s rendered in black and white, it’s complex and thought provoking with Logsdon judiciously avoiding the prescriptive stereotypes that populate less imaginative works. His plot speaks to our fears of the future as oppressive regimes across around the world turn to technology to control their populaces and we get a glimpse of the terrifying possibilities of where we may be headed!
A highly entertaining read, especially for fans of high stake dystopian thrillers or those with an interest in social ideology The Intelligence Factor is definitely recommended!
