What Do You Think, Mr. Collins? is a work of fiction in the science fiction genre penned by author Neal Bialostosky. It is aimed at the mature reading audience owing to the presence of explicit language throughout and some violence. The book is a wild and surrealist journey through the lives of two characters living in the city of Paradise. One is an AI butler who has realized that the city is in danger, but nobody else seems to care as the mayoral race in which the incumbent is being challenged by a black hole is just too exciting. The other is a man trying to push his way through a red-tape nightmare so bizarre that Rumpelstiltskin himself is involved.
I thoroughly enjoyed this exploratory and surrealist tale which takes readers through the secrets that lie beneath the city of Paradise. One of the things that I was most intrigued by were the ideas and the pure creativity sewn into the plot, making you think deeply about not only the story elements, but the wider themes and reflections on life around them. Author Neal Bialostosky has a keen sense of atmosphere, which he builds through tension and clues that he delivers through clever dialogue and scenic description. The characters in this novel are fully realized and three-dimensional, with protagonist Ben having his own flaws and quirks that make him feel like a character you can easily connect with. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend this novel to fans of science fiction, and those that enjoy thrillers with a connection to the real world. What Do You Think, Mr. Collins? will make you question and think deeper about the world around you, and will stay with you long after you put the book down.
