And lo and behold, as I let myself settle into this fascinating world, I soon realized that those things were there after all … in the guise of 7 human beings exploring one of the bravest new worlds ever. It is a time when the life they knew so well is brought to a screeching halt, and they now have to face living without fast-moving instantaneous travel and seeing what presents itself instead in their world-turned-on-its-head present. And, not a small thing, they also have to face dealing with each other.
This is an incredibly smart, original work that surrounds us with a vision of what might be as technology continues to make things easier and easier for us. But as a result, it also presents unforeseen challenges - and for some unleashes a deep questioning of who they truly are and what all this really means.
I admit that it took me a while to let myself go with the flow of what the author Paul Diamond was giving us, but as I moved through the pages and grew to know and embrace the characters - and delight in the author’s vision of a totally new world right here on earth - I wound up loving the book. There are also bits of humor and sly allusions to the old pre “zip travel” world, as well as a wonderfully inventive glossary, that I think readers will enjoy.
I recommend this book to anyone looking for a sci-fi story that is filled with human creatures and an off the beaten path formula – while still delivering a satisfying “other world” journey that left me hoping for more.
I love the character development and could feel myself relating to his inner monologues. It was a quick read and worth every cent!
I have given this book to my dad (a big critic who was also pleasantly surprised with the books way of telling so many stories) as well as many people I know thru work who find themselves struggling to find their way. I'm here about to buy a handful more so I can hand them out at another career event.
