Book Description

The Year We Finally Solved Everything by Rudolf Kerkhoven

The Indie Book of the Day for 9th of August 2012!

Genre: Fantasy, Literary Fiction

“Shan Won seems to only exist deep within the dark rumor-crazed underbelly of the internet. But the common thread throughout all this writing is glaringly obvious: people stumble upon Shan Won, espouse its perfection, and never, ever–ever–return.

The global economy is in tatters not because of humanity’s faults but because of its accomplishment. The country of Shan Won, a small island state off the coast of China, has cured all of our ills, and like a black hole, a piercing singularity of perfection, it’s sucking the world dry of its stability and leadership and power.

Human traffickers become overwhelmed with smuggling hordes of North Americans across to Asia for a better life. And for Richard, to whom growing up seems to have solved nothing at all, escape seems to be his only option. But when he become reacquainted with Mia, the girlfriend of his twenties, he’s no longer certain about just what’s the problem and what’s the solution. He only knows that he’s running out of time.

The Year We Finally Solved Everything is a dark, ironic and fast-paced novel (55 000 words) about the sacrifices one makes to achieve perfection.

Read Sample

Over the last thirteen years, Rudolf Kerkhoven has greatly improved his typing skills. He is now able to type quickly through a rather unorthodox hybrid of the prescribed home-row technique and good old hunt-and-peck. As of the summer of 2011, his estimated WPM (words per minute) is 65, although it appears doubtful that this will improve any further. Rudolf Kerkhoven is pretty impressed with this. That’s more than a word a second.
