If you have read any of David Moody’s other books you will know that survival is a key motivator in his books, and this one is no different. Be prepared for an ending you will be expecting but not in the way you are expecting.

I believe that any parent that is a fan of science fiction or apocalyptic fiction will truly enjoy this story. As I said before, David Moody has an ability to pull you into the daily life of another human being and make you feel as if you are there, living and perhaps even suffering alongside the characters.
Do yourself a favor and pick this book up at your local bookstore…or on amazon.com…or on your Kindle…or wherever else you can (e.g. there is no reason you can’t) because it is absolutely awesome.

Der Roman schreitet voran und schreitet voran und es wollen sich partout nicht die kleinen Verdachts- und Beunruhigungsmomente einstellen, auf deren Erkennung man als Genreleser eigentlich geeicht ist. Irgendwann drängt sich daher die Frage auf, ob das nicht der Zugang sein könnte, den Moody zum Thema gewählt hat – nämlich dass zur Abwechslung tatsächlich mal nichts Schlimmes passiert. Oder zumindest nichts Schlimmeres als Toms fortschreitende Entfremdung gegenüber seiner Umwelt. Aber würde das nicht total Moody’s apokalyptischer Bibliographie widersprechen? – Also, ich verrate nichts.
Sehr spannendes Buch!

Overall, a quality read from an author at the top of his game in the world of creepy, claustrophobic, apocalyptic fiction.

David Moody fans (or sci-fi junkies) will be pleased to note that this title is currently available online for free. And it’s pretty damn fine. Not as strong as Moody’s Hater, but perhaps it isn’t even fair to compare the two because in a lot of ways they are very different stories.

Trust a fantastic book and I will definitely read more of the author. I hope he gets more attention in Sweden for that he deserves! For me, this book is innovative and I hope it will be translated into Swedish, so that it reaches more readers!

David Moody is definitely one to watch.

The writing is not as visceral as Moody’s popular postapocalyptic novels, but that isn’t a bad thing: this story, with its slowly building sense of unease and multiple thematic undercurrents (probably the best being the frequent references to popular fictional alien-invasion stories by way of illustrating how our perceptions often conform to our expectations), needs a more delicate touch. Moody’s many fans will absolutely want to read this one.

Forget the idea that this is an anti-science fiction novel. It has aliens in it and it’s a treatise on how the ordinary person copes when the world which they are familiar with changes beyond all recognition. In my mind, that makes it very simply, a very good science fiction novel.

Trust is a slow-burner and all the richer for it. The layers of characters and details of the story play out perfectly when matched with an ending you’re not likely to forget. It’s also an outstanding novel, delivers in more ways than one, and is worthy of a place on the discerning fan’s bookshelf. 10/10.

Being objective, Trust will not be for everyone. Moody has a talent for taking his time with telling a story, developing it fully, before building to climactic and even shocking finales in his work and Trust continues this form. Those who don’t have the patience for such efforts and are seeking a less cerebral, more action-driven plot would do well to look elsewhere. For those looking for something a little different, infinitely more satisfying and thought-provoking, get yourself a copy of Trust at your earliest convenience.

For regular Moody readers, Trust is the latest in a long line of thought provoking, intelligent novels, and a chance to see him stretch his wings outside of the Autumn and Hater universes. For new readers this is an ideal starting point to discover this major British talent who despite his innovations and successes of the last decade, you get the feeling is only just getting started.

Moody is selling Trust as an anti-scifi book, and that’s pretty much what you’ve got here. Unlike a lot of contemporary scifi, this story is defiantly character-focused, and heartbreakingly accessible with it. It’s not Hollywood fodder. Think District 9 as opposed to Independence Day. I’ll stand by the word ‘epic’ to best describe this book. Because from gripping start to heart-pounding finish, this is a story that will shake you to the very core, resonating long after you’ve turned the final page. And there’s nothing more epic than that.

Laced with humorous observations, and a slow creeping sense of unease and paranoia, Trust is a spectacular piece of fiction and a prime example of what David Moody does. He is a unique writer, creating fear and discomfort in the reader and giving a brilliant payback with the ending.
