Although this book was very well written, it wasn’t for me. I read it until the end because I don’t like reading books part way. The main thing that I had an issue with was that despite the fact that the book was set in 2036, which is almost 30 years into the future, it still felt as if I was in 2018. There was nothing particularly futuristic about the book that I can remember. There were some funny parts in the story, the one that sticks out to me the most is the naked cowboy. Another good thing about the book was that I felt I could relate to some of the characters, I can tell that the author spent a lot of time developing them which I appreciate. The storyline is packed with current worldwide conflicts such as water conservation, and the control that has been placed on the media.
This is not a book I would recommend simply because I didn’t find it that enjoyable.
Attribution- The Screenplay by Christine Horner, wasn't my first experience of the author. I'd previously read the novel version and being completely honest I didn't enjoy it at all, however I was interested to see how this caused the novel series to be created.
The story is set in 2036 and is set around a blacklisted journalist, who finds herself at a career crossroads, behind her is the explosive past and in front humanities future. The heroine of the story Truby Goodman finds she is to be relocated to Americas sector N3-24F, the defunct old faithful inn situated in Wyoming alongside 4 other people she doesn't really know. Previously one of Interpol's most wanted she is now under a plea agreement with the government. Memories haunt Truby of a child that is one of three Alpha Generation geniuses chosen to design something to solve the international water crisis. Truby must risk her true identity as she races to expose the greatest move ever attempted.
After reading the screenplay the parts that weren't understandable in the novel made sense. This was a unique experience
Based on the summary, this story has both aspects I gravitate toward and ones that I have a tendency to back away from. I'm all for the underdog, the disgraced character who musters the courage to overcome an injustice from some deep rooted sense of loyalty. A backdrop of doom for humanity via some plague, horrific natural disaster or, as is the case here, a global water crisis usually makes for an action filled adventure that I enjoy. Where my focus tends to fade is in the futuristic, sci-fi genre that Attribution seemed almost surely to be despite the date being a couple short decades ahead.
The author's intro in Attribution: The Screenplay drew me in quickly. I felt like I connected with Christine Horner on the writer level and just knew I was going to love this novel in screenplay format despite trying and giving up on several screenplays before. Oh how I wish it had happened that way! I want to be able to say how much I loved this character or hated that one. I'd like to be able to tell you that the action was thrilling and the world portrayed was rich and detailed. I can't say any of those things because apparently I am a reader who cannot read screenplays. That is not the fault of the author, this may be an award winning screenplay, I've no idea. What I can say is that the plot of this story in fascinating and I wish I had been able to see past the format to experience it.
In what is a switch from the norm, this is a case of a screenplay being turned into a novel series. Set in the not so far off future of 2036, the world is suffering from both a global water conflict and controlled media. A journalist, who has been blacklisted by her profession, finds herself standing between her explosive past and the very future of mankind. Goodman needs to make a decision: with everything she has seen, and everything she knows, does she stand by and let events unfold or does she dare to attempt to rewrite centuries-old human history. I found this book to be more of a warning of what could come, rather than anything. The world presented of the future, I felt was based on what is happening today. A sort of foreshadowing as to the fact if we don’t get the problems fixed now, this may be the end result. For that reason, I did find it a little unsettling, but intriguing all the same.
Christine Horner is one of those unique authors who understands her passion for writing and hewn it to her advantage. Attribution: The Screenplay is her magic as she transfers her novel Attribution into a screenplay. After reading both, I found the screen play revealed information I felt was missing in the book. I saw a different angle of Truby Goodman as Christine Horner approached the writing of this work differently than a novel.
Christine Horner masterfully crafted her novel Attribution in this screenplay making it a unique read. It opens the dialog that wasn’t in the novel, but I could not pick one over the other as far as my favorite. I still laugh every time I read about the naked cowboy racing across forbidden lands. I really enjoyed Horner’s introduction. She opened as an author that few can express like she does. It is like she found what drove her and mastered it. Very enjoyable read.
This screenplay by author Christine Horner tells the tale of a tragic global water issue and blacklisted journalists, like Truby Goodman, during 2036. Goodman is trying to do her job the best she can, but she comes across many difficulties along the way, such as trying to deal with her shocking past while also working to help inform people of major worldwide problems. For her work, she is sent to the Old Faithful Inn with four other people she knows nothing about. It’s up to Goodman to keep her identity a secret while also trying to investigate shocking stories, like a massive coup about to happen. While the screenplay is a bit long (1,890 pages) it’s certainly worth reading. It’s packed with suspense and plenty of thrills which will keep you on the edge of your seat. The characters are also well-developed which help to make this story an even more enjoyable read.
“Attribution: The Screenplay” by Christine Horner is based off of Horner’s book of the same name. While I didn’t read the original book, someone recommended the screenplay to me and I feel it definitely is worth reading as a standalone. It hits on major cultural and worldwide conflicts and hard topics with a story that is engaging and characters who are relatable. The story itself takes place in the future, where the current hot-button topic of water conservation has become real and the world is in a conflict over water and all media is controlled. Our heroine, Truby Goodman, is on the Most Wanted list due to knowledge she has based on her past, but she is also working with the government. Since the story is set as a screenplay in preparation for a movie to come, it reads differently than your common novel, but nonetheless is a compelling story that flows quickly.
The book, “Attribution: The Screenplay,” gives much useful information on how to write a screenplay and things you should consider while doing so. It then goes into a sci-fi story that intrigues all types of readers from the get-go. It was an exciting choice for the offer to put it in a screenplay format instead of a regular novel, but I enjoyed it. It was cool that the author chose to place the setting in the future. I always think it’s interesting to see how others imagine the future being. I loved the development of the characters, especially the main character Truby Goodman. The characters way of speaking was very modern and not robotic the way most people have them sound because of the future setting and I’m glad the novel took a more realistic, current approach. It wasn’t cliche at all, and I will definitely be rereading the book. I also would love to see the play performed. To conclude my review, I do recommend this book to everyone!
Christine Horner’s “Attribution” offers an intriguing premise: a central source controls media, and a worldwide water crisis ensues. A blacklisted journalist embarks on a dangerous mission with people she doesn’t know in the hopes of exposing a coup that threatens everything as she knows it. Powerful, dynamic, exhilarating, this screenplay has it all! You’ll be at the edge of your seat as you race your way through its pages.
This screenplay posits itself as a companion to the novel of the same name. As much as I enjoyed reading Horner’s work, I would rather have read the novel prior to reading the screenplay. Reading a screenplay takes some practice. I’m adept at reading them, but usually I have had some context in other associated writings. That being said, it’s well worth reading this, and I’m looking forward to reading Horner’s novel. Horner employs the screenplay to dive into character development and plot driving through the use of conversation. It takes true talent to achieve this aim effectively. A highly recommended read!
From the authors note to the reader I was pulled right into this storyline. I really enjoyed the information that the author provided about writing both books and screenplays. This is a well written screen play that really provides a fun movie setting. I really look forward to the on screen version and look forward to more work from the author. The story flowed nicely and I was easily able to keep up with what was happening in the plot. This really didn’t take me all that long to read and finish. The writing is well done and story flows nicely making this a wonderful read. While reading a screen play is much different from reading a book it does give the reader more ability to add their own images to the storyline. I will be keeping an eye out for the movie in the future.
