We have a fun treat this Meet the Author, in the form of a character spotlight of Adam Larimore from Adam - a companion novel to the Perfect World series by Author Shari Sakurai.
Adam Larimore is on a mission of self-destruct. After learning that he was genetically engineered for the sole purpose of inheriting his father’s empire, Adam has been determined to ruin his father’s life and in the process his own. When Ivan Williams, the man soon to become the Head of the London Security Agency (L.S.A), approaches Adam with the offer of a business partnership, Adam discovers the appalling truth behind the technological and genetic advancements that have come to shape England. His relationship with his father is at breaking point and when events take a devastating turn, Adam finds himself pushed further than perhaps he wanted to go.
Full Name: Adam Victor James Larimore
Date of Birth: 7th March 2093
About Adam: Adam was genetically engineered to be the perfect heir to his father’s business and fortune. Adam has a genius level IQ and he has designed computers and programs that have taken his father’s company from strength to strength in the recent years. Yet Adam is a very troubled young man. Victor Larimore sees him more as another investment than his son and nothing Adam does is good enough for Victor Larimore. Disheartened Adam begins to rebel in the hopes that his behaviour will get through to his father where his words have failed. Adam appears to be quite selfish and arrogant, but a lot of this is a front to hide his insecurities. Adam also tends to be his own worst enemy and often lets his negative emotions get the better of him and cloud his judgement. He has trouble forming close relationships and is fearful of voicing his true feelings for his lover, Leon, in case he is rejected. The thing Adam fears most is his father finding out that he is gay. He knows that if Victor ever learned this then he would be disowned and there would be no hope of a reconciliation between father and son.
Adam is closer to his godfather, Ivan Williams, who is the Head of the L.S.A (London Security Agency) and he sees Ivan as more of a father figure. Ivan is often looking out for Adam and offering him advice - even if sometimes it is unwanted!
