The story was easy to read and well written, being told entirely in the first person by the titular young hero, and I'm sure would be eagerly devoured by any teenager (or adult) looking for transportation to a post-apocalyptic future world. As an introduction to the character it works extremely well, and we do get to know him quickly, and find ourselves drawn in.
However it is the fact that it is a novella - something I don't usually read - and not a full length book that creates my only gripe. I wanted more. Not so much of the story, which was well planned and executed, but I needed more detail, we are told it is future world devoid of modern technology, but we're not really shown this, there are plenty of references, but it's all a little short on description.
SPOILER ALERT: Without wanting to give too much away a crime is committed (and solved), this also could have been padded out, more clues offered to the reader, more suspense and build up, but then perhaps I'm being unfair, within the limited word count Tim does manage to tell a good story.
There's definitely enough here for me to want to go and investigate one of the author's full length works, and perhaps if I had done this first I may have had a better understanding of the setting in which 'Socko's First Day' is set.
Over all though an enjoyable story, which I was glad to haven given an hour or so of my time to read.
This is one of Tim Arnot's short stories set in his post-apocalyptic world. Some of the characters are common to these short stories and the full length novel, ‘Wanted’ but the novelettes stand well as stories in their own right. There’s a wry humour in these tales which I greatly enjoy. They're very good indeed.
