As ever, there will be no spoilers in my latest Editor’s Choice, but I can say, that as a somewhat lapsed Science Fiction reader, the book’s very original premise lured me back into the genre.
Last summer in my Captivating Opening contest (in which I read the Amazon preview to judge the entries) I read the first chapter and instantly decided I wanted to read the whole book.
So I purchased a (good quality) paperback version rather than Kindle and found the story to be even better than anticipated, to the point that it now sits upon my Sci-Fi shelf among exalted company.
This is a book that will appeal to readers of other genres – a quote from a reader who received the wrong book from Amazon:
“…I gave it 4 stars because in a odd and strange unusual way I liked it very much. I can't believe I'm saying that! Me who reads mostly thrillers!...”
“…The effects of the changing physical environment and the changing mental states of the characters are perfectly captured in the prose and I caught myself re-reading sections to try and figure out how he'd captured the feeling not only in the words but in their structure - an excellent and engaging read!...”
