Before you leap is the best Sci-Fi novel I have read my whole life. The book has got right elements of Science Fiction, Humor, sarcasm at its best. There are many instances where I just laughed out loud. Amazing concept, amazing humor, amazing characters.The way Sean Kelly is described is an absolute accurate description of how a teenager would be. Everything from his expressions, his sarcasm to his humor is downright adorable. Alexis and Nicole are just perfect. There is absolutely no flaw in this book. It keeps you hooked till the very end. The suspense which is kept for the next book is also just right. Unlike other series, where an intense suspense is kept for the next book, Les Lynam keeps the suspense to just the right element without creating a horrible vacuum when the book ends but also enough to ensure that the next book is definitely grabbed.Science Fiction was never exactly my forte but this book definitely changed it all. I pulled an all-nighter for this one, and it was absolutely worth it. Kudos to Les Lynam. So waiting for the next one to come. ---Devinair_reviews
