    1. What an apt title, this book was in fact enormous. Possibly the longest one I've read digitally thus far. Digitally is probably the best way to read a book this size, unless you're strengthening your arms/wrists. Because it was so long, it was sort of a mixed reading experience. It failed to impress me from the start, meaning the concept was great, but the execution was too Bret Easton Ellisy for me, hedonistic, constantly high, oversexed and overexposed, playing music and partying all day and n [...]


    2. All I can say is: home run, Mister Milligan, home run. ENORMITY is genuinely hilarious, often scary, bizarre, consistently moving, sexy as hell, and packs one hell of a soundtrack. A unique combination of Bret Easton Ellis and Rolling Stones' most brutal exposés, ENORMITY just goes from strength to strength in its disturbing reach for the stars. And it's so aptly titled, too Yes, it's enormous in scope, and yet somehow manages to capture the enormity of intimacy - the intimacy of a kiss, the in [...]


    3. This was an interesting read that kept me moderately entertained, although it wasn’t the rollicking good time I was initially expecting.The book jumps right in to Jack as already a rock star on Heaven (the alien planet) and tells of his arrival and how he became famous through a series of flashbacks. This nonlinear storytelling works well with the plot. Starting with semi-familiar rock star territory, the book slowly reveals what is different about this planet, as well as about Jack.It is evid [...]


    4. What would you do if you landed on an alien planet to discover a race of humans who have evolved in parallel to our world. Back home, he was a music fan and so when he sings some of the songs he grew up with (Leonard Cohen, Neil Young, and more), he's revered as a musical genius. He becomes a rock star along with all of the stereotypical negatives (and positives) that come along with it: sex, drugs, and fame. I enjoyed the book from the first page, but I admit that the first few chapters were le [...]


    5. Jack is the most famous rock star in the world he's just not from this planet.Before joining NASA's space programme, Jack had dreams of a career as a professional musician. When a deep space mission goes awry, he crashes on an alien planet. Jack discovers that his new world is inhabited by a race of humans that have evolved in parallel to those on Earth. He picks up a guitar and performs the most wondrous rock songs of his home planet. Neil Young. Leonard Cohen. Bob Dylan. Superstardom beckons a [...]


    6. AN AMAZEBALLS BOOK!Okay, so when Nick liked a picture of mine on Instagram I was interested to see who he was I had a look at his profile and he said that there was a giveaway, to which I had just missed out I commented this on the photo and he promptly replied giving me a link to a free copy of his entire book (Part 1, 2 and 3!) When I finished the book I wanted more but unfortunately there is no more, or as Nick tells me you never know there could be another oneAnyway thats all, have a good da [...]


    7. Milligan’s writing has that weird undercurrent attention to detail, one that could easily forgo plot and describe simply, exactly and satirically, a place readers would be content to keep exploring. And as one explores, threads of plot spin from myriad directions – horror, romance, sci-fi – genres abound – and hint at a narrative direction, so as hints drop, the weight of the world becomes greater and Jack (protagonist), speaking initially entirely as someone disconnected from any meanin [...]


    8. Milligan's debut novel, Enormity, is what Vanilla Sky could have been if it had, well, any substance. Milligan, journalist/trivia-ring-master by day, successfully transcends time to produce a storyline so polished and involved that it's difficult to grasp that this is his first. The strength in his work is his ability to create relatable characters in un-relatable scenarios. Enormity is sexy, original and at times, thought provoking. And heck, any reference to Paul Kelly in a futuristic world ge [...]


    9. Not quite what I expected, but pretty close to the description.The story was good, even if it jumped around a little too much, to the point where it was a little confusing if things happened before he became famous, while he was becoming famous, or while he was at the top of the world.Characters were good, but it seemed that the ending was a bit rushed and maybe not precisely what the entire story was leading up to.Not a bad book.


    10. Very much not my thing. I'm not into the drugs/rock'n'roll/groupies thing in real life, so it doesn't interest me in a book.But if you are into that, at least reading that kind of fiction, give it a shot. The premise is interesting. Just not interesting enough to keep me engaged.Moving on . . . .


    11. Just finished reading Nick Milligan's Enormity. Excellent plot. Nick has a way with dialog that really appeals to me. I'm looking forward to his next book.


    12. I did completely enjoy this book. I like the concept and the execution but the idea wasn't big enough for this kind a story


    13. I read all kinds of things & am neither naive nor prudish but if there's no plot other than drugs & random sex for most of the first chapter, I'm giving up. I can read People magazine for that.



    14. Rock stars are apparently all the same no matter what planet they're on, but still not enough to interest me past the first drug-fueled orgy.


    15. Really I wanted to like this butThe book was too filled with too much repetitive scenes of drugs and sex. A quarter of it should have been left out and there could have been more time used to develop the main character. A lot of time wasted on what seemed to be an adolescent dream.
