My Author Is Dead
Authoritarians are rigid, self-righteous, and close-minded, but in Adam’s defense, he didn’t choose to be born as one. And never does he resent his Authoritarian standing more than when he finds himself in love with a Kafkaist. June is beautiful and fierce, and, in the eyes of Adam’s village, nothing more than a morally-deficient animal. But Adam’s done following the mindless religious hierarchy of the so-called Author. He just needs a plan to rescue June’s brother, escape the Fanatiks, flee the village, and make June fall in love with him forever and ever.
Too bad planning has never been Adam’s strong point.
The premise for My Author is Dead is fairly straightforward and relatable, which makes it a shame when the story goes right off the tracks a little over the halfway mark. The introduction of the character of the Author is confusing and disorienting, and frankly annoying. Since nothing in Adam’s situation changes after meeting his Author, there’s no apparent significance to the entire episode, and you can’t help but feel as though there’s supposed to be some deeper meaning involved that’s just not apparent. In the end I was left feeling utterly perplexed and not a little irritated.
