Beacon 23: The Complete Novel by Hugh Howey

Beacon 23: The Complete Novel – For centuries, men and women have manned lighthouses to ensure the safe passage of ships. It is a lonely job, and a thankless one for the most part. Until something goes wrong. Until a ship is in distress. In the twenty-third century, this job has moved into outer space. A network of beacons allows ships to travel across the Milky Way at many times the speed of light. These beacons are built to be robust. They never break down. They never fail. At least, they aren’t supposed to.

Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover

“Junk food, but not the kind you feel guilty about.” —Warren Ellis, author of Gun Machine

For centuries, men and women have manned lighthouses to ensure the safe passage of ships. It is a lonely job, and a thankless one for the most part. Until something goes wrong. Until a ship is in distress. In the twenty-third century, this job has moved into outer space. A network of beacons allows ships to travel across the Milky Way at many times the speed of light.

These beacons are built to be robust. They never break down. They never fail.

At least, they aren’t supposed to.

With Beacon 23 best-selling author Hugh Howey delivers white-knuckle suspense, with aliens, war, and madness all combining in a story of one man living aboard a beacon and his battle against the solitary blackness of space.

HUGH HOWEY is the author of the award-winning Molly Fyde saga and the New York Times and USA Today best-selling Silo trilogy (Wool, Shift, and Dust). The Wool Omnibus won Kindle Book Review’s 2012 Indie Book of the Year Award and has been translated in forty countries.

Not my first Howey novel, but this is the first time I cared about an author and his work enough to sit down and write a review. I just finished putting the book down and frankly I’m still too anesthetized by Howey’s bold idea to write something truly helpful. But I’ll try anyway. In this review I’ll refrain from commenting on the plot, on narrative or writing style. These are all done in beauty and elegance, although such judgements are really subject to the eyes of the beholder. However, I will try to write about something more elusive: what the book is really about; the book’s soul.

I expected a sci-fi dystopic future along the lines of the Wool Olmnibus. However, what I got as I delved deeper into Beacon 23 was a magnificent and mind-numbing exploration of the human mind and human nature – naked and raw in all its beauty and shortcomings.

Howey, in a straightforward and effotless manner, digs deep into the very fabric of human emotions. The entire novel serves a single purpose: to allow the author to pose a grand question. A beautiful and inspiring question.

Some might say that the tone of this novel is too dark and gloomy, albeit I found myself laughing out loud at certain points. I hope those who would say that stuck to the end of the book and were rewarded by the feeling of hope and peace which pervaded my thoughts as I put my kindle down. I honesly hope you will agree and that Hugh Howey continues surprising us with his writing.
