An End - Review
Some say that I good book will change the way a person looks on life. A book is somewhat of a companion. It follows the reader around, enjoys a day in the park being read, gets beat around in an old backpack, and it could be quietly absorbed in that coffee shop down the street. Books present the reader with the ultimate entertainment, imagination.
This book lit a spark that fueled the fires of imagination somewhere inside of me. If there was ever a book that you just couldn't put down, it is An End. It made me want to be the one called Whistler. I wanted to be there, to save the world, and it also made me empathetic towards the characters if something went awry. Sometimes authors focus too much on detail and the book becomes drab and boring. Paul Hughes found a way to catch my attention and keep it throughout the piece.
What really intrigued me about the style of this book is the order. The story goes from future, to present, to past, and back again. It will astound any reader to see how it works out. Only a genius mind could write a book that way and make it work. Paul has done just that.
I wouldn't offer this book to someone that doesn't want an intellectual experience, however. If you are looking for a challenging book that will make you think I suggest An End. This piece of writing will grab you, tease you, and at times confuse you on a journey to An End.
