Who is Steven Giamotti? A teenage psychopath stalking a swank Eastern prep school? A self-proclaimed messiah with the power to raise the dead, racing toward a desolate Pacific island aboard a hijacked submarine? A suave and charming Manhattan financier who may or may not be secretly building the world’s ultimate weapon? A traveler from another universe on a mission to expand human consciousness–or destroy it? Or is he just a character in a book, a figment of someone else’s imagination! …or your own?

Life Without Giamotti is the first book in Sean Munger’s Giamotti series. The basic idea behind Giamotti is that he is a fictional character & when he finds out he’s fictional he trys to become real.  The book is written in four seperate parts, which you can read in any order (at the start of the book there is the authors version of how to read, sequence of events order to read, Giamotti’s order..etc) kind of like an homage to those choose your own adventure books we all read as kids.

The four parts are told by four different characters:

  • A Navy Lieutenant
  • A young man who starts having weird dreams
  • A college student
  • A torch singer who likes her men dangerous

Life Without Giamotti was unlike anything I’ve ever read as the book spans about 62 years & different realities for each character. Simply put it’s so bizarre you have to know whats coming next, just when you get a handle on things they completely turn upside down. Numerous times in the course of reading Giamotti, I had a “huh, wtf” look on my face. It really made me think & question some of the things the characters themselves were thinking.

If you are looking for something that will make you question yourself, Life Without Giamotti is the perfect Sci-Fi thrill ride you need to get your hands on.
