22gigantes.com - Dystortions: 100 Hues of Purple is a tale of mystery, murder, and love in a parallel universe, with a bit of humor. Addy O'Malibul is a former journalist who is convicted of murder and imprisoned on a planet called Malaprop, strikingly similar to Earth, but with a few twists and many Dystortions in translations of data transmissions from a planet known as Hearth. Glitched up radio communications are bombarding Malaprop - a world where fearful national security analysts, politicians, and P.R. flacks re-write history and distort facts to recreate their reality in Hearth's image. The Dystortions in those radio communications sometimes appear to twist words backwards and create opposite meanings, but maybe also reveal underlying truths.There's just enough good science and wacked-out myth-busting to make the story hauntingly credible - and enough saucy romance to keep things hot. It's much warmer and more colorful than any shades of grey.

The plot doesn't wait for readers. Instead, it instantly takes them on a journey through time and space. Addy is a character unlike any other. She starts off like a everyday fictional character then progressing into a whole another category. Her thoughts and actions are what propels readers to look deeper. Traveling from single to married then, arrested and convicted, Addy never has a boring moment in her life. Until she's locked up, then time is all she has. Her relationship with her husband is great. Joking and sexual. Sweet and hot. But just as life was good it soon turns bad...finding the truth will be harder than thought. Addy's dreams each contain a different hue of life. In the end good overcomes the bad.Lisa Pell has woven a piece of literature that is thought provoking. Each situation gets harsher and more cruel. The story is told from protagonist's eyes. I felt intrigued. The pages flew by and before I knew it, I had landed at the last page. Dystortions: 100 Hues of Purple shows readers many messages. It's up to readers to analyze their content. Action, adventure, and fantasy all brought together in one marvelous volume. I was surprised. This book's tale was unlike many i have read. It was rich, bold, and engaging. Truly enjoyed reading it. Overall, I recommend it to readers everywhere. 1 of 1 people found the following review helpful. Excellent scifi mystery By Majanka Dystortions: 100 Hues of Purple tells the story of Addy O’Malibul, a former journalist who is convicted of murder and imprisoned on the planet Malaprop, which is strikingly similar to Earth. One of the differences is that Malaprop suffers from Dystortions in translations of data transmissions, with glitched up radio communications. The Dystortions are actually quite intriguing – while changing and twisting data, they often reveal underlying truths.I enjoyed the parallel universe of Malaprop, and how they want to be like Hearth, and how everyone, politicians and media alike, twist words to rewrite history and change facts – not that very different from earth, if you look at the core of it. Addy was an amazing character. She started out as your every day protagonist with a pretty regular life, until things turned south for her, and she had to adapt to her new circumstances of life. I especially liked the way she changed and grew throughout the story.The plot also has a good amount of humor, and the writing is good too. This is an excellent scifi mystery for fans of the genre. I received a free copy in exchange for an honest review. 4 of 4 people found the following review helpful. I read this in one sitting!

This is a thought-provoking science fiction novel full of mystery and excitement -Foreword s, Rating: Five StarsIn her fascinating and haunting science fiction novel, Dystortions: 100 Hues of Purple, Lisa Pell examines the folly of man through the eyes of a woman on death row, with the help of some strange radio transmissions from a parallel universe.The action takes place on the planet Malaprop, which is similar to Earth, but with various degrees of difference in its people, places, things, and ideas. The main character, Addy, is an intelligent and pragmatic woman who finds love where she least expects it--with her next-door neighbor. They marry after a whirlwind romance. However, the catalyst that brought them together will also tear them apart. Addy finds herself on death row, and with nothing but time on her hands, she learns the history of Malaprop by watching history programs and reading.Pell provides insightful, witty, and biting commentary of Malaprop's history, laws, and social conditions. For example, she observes how different parallel Earths interpret sacred texts: "All these different versions, some slightly altering a single nuance to dramatically change the meaning of a particular commandment, admonition, or parable, like a hundred hues of prose." The analysis of a parallel universe--from the perspective of a planet that is, in turn, taking its cues from another parallel universe--provides a bird's-eye view that makes it easy to discern the good from the bad.On both a macro and a micro level, Pell masterfully demonstrates humanity's need for narratives to explain where we came from and where we're going. On death row, Addy goes to a place in her mind where she can survive her current realities: "She could explore the cosmos and put thought together in amusing amalgamations of whimsy, hope, and maybe even a little healthy revenge to keep her sanity. Fantasy was becoming a way of life." Addy is an endearing character whose growth is enabled by her studies and the prisoners she meets along her journey.Through Addy's encounters with other prisoners, she copes with the crushing gravity of her situation. She is able to find humor, and to give and receive sympathy. These interactions move the character development and the plot forward. Some are funny, while others are heartbreaking and maddening, but all of them give clues and glimpses into Addy's psyche and the strange parallel universe in which the story is set.Dystortions: 100 Hues of Purple is a thought-provoking science fiction novel that is full of mystery and excitement.forewordreviews.com/reviews/dystortions-100-hues-of-purple/KIRKUS REVIEWA novel explores extraterrestrial love in a topsy-turvy world.In her latest book, Pell (Who's Your Daddy, Baby?, 2012) graduates from romantic satire to sci-fi (with a healthy dose of romantic satire). Amethyst Adele "Addy" McCrory is a lonely, brilliant, brassy ex-TV reporter with a murder rap and an appointment with an electric chair named Old Sparkey. Prior to the gunplay that landed her behind bars, Addy and a hunky lawyer named Sean Michael O'Malibul had shared "heart-pumping lust, combined with mind-melding intellect." But all is not right in their world in 2503 "on a planet called Malaprop, strikingly similar to a planet Malapropians would come to know through garbled, distorted radio transmissions as Hearth." Malaprop is a backward world, full of sideways slogans, a retrograde justice system, tribes at war, and a scarifying history. It is a world, in other words, very much like Earth. There, Addy muses--for roughly 100 pages--on the tangled histories of Malaprop and Hearth (and Hearth's holy book, an amusingly and disturbingly garbled version of Earth's own sacred texts called The Word: The Book of Nirvana, a popular recording of which was first performed by "the punkish unfamiliar young apostle Kurt"). As with most histories, alternative histories, or historical satires, details pile up here but characters don't stick around. Once readers reach the present, roughly halfway through the novel, they learn why Addy has been imprisoned. They are told of Mandy MacBeth, she of the "double chin that collapsed into her neck and could flatten the sex drive of any normal healthy male," her persecution of Addy, her lust for Sean, and the comeuppance she eventually receives. The novel is enormously fun to read, filled with jokes and wry asides about the recognizable madness of a planet so like Earth. The levels of reality are so tangled here that readers trying to puzzle out just what happens at the end, when Addy may or may not have the chance at a new life, may be mildly frustrated by the deliberate ambiguity of the closing pages. But for Pell, plot was never the point: this is a wide-ranging satire, not a narrowly focused one, and the pleasure of the author's voice--combined with the bounty of her imagination--makes the moments reading this book feel like time well spent.A poignant parody of media blather, modern romance, and mangled justice, with sci-fi accents. kirkusreviews.com/book-reviews/lisa-pell/dystortions-100-hues-of-purple/I Heart ReadingDystortions: 100 Hues of Purpletells the story of Addy O'Malibul, a former journalist who is convicted ofmurder and imprisoned on the planet Malaprop, which is strikingly similar toEarth.
