Let the reader beware.
Things are not going well for Ali Kim. On the same day he loses his work badge, his boss tells him, “the boss wants to see you.” The idea of seeing his boss’s boss is not something that fills Ali with glee or delight. Imagine your boss says, out of the blue, “the boss wants to see you” and then provides you no further explanation. Do you feel delight? Do you feel glee? Ali Kim does not.
While Ali navigates the labyrinthine inner-workings of the buildings where “the boss” may be, he encounters a range of characters; some that help him and some that hinder him. Also providing boosts and banes are the insane situations and locations that appear throughout the story.
The story of The Badge is not intended for a future streaming service. It is not the story of a hero. It is not the first in a series of books which focus on a person. It is not a story where pretty people will play the characters. It is a story for readers that do not want to be led to the end in a cozy way or in a straight line. Ali’s quest to find the boss’ boss is an epic adventure, where time and space are not fixed concepts. This may confuse the reader; this may also frustrate the reader quite a bit. It is a story for people who are looking for that kind of story.
