I'm really glad I got to review this book; there have been similar books in the past but none exactly like this that go into so much depth. It's part sci-fi, but also combines a number of other elements and explores human nature in a realistic and eye-opening way. Beyond the Milky Way will have readers questioning not just themselves, but the world (and possibly many other worlds) around them as well
That dang cliffy! AHHH! It was great and I look forward to see where the next book goes. It's funny that I've read this - aside from the romance novels I'm writing, I'm actually working on a sci-fi fantasy that poses similar ideas for readers to ponder and more.
A great second book by the author after the first novel, India Was One, that is very different but still strong. You'll learn a lot about the author by reading both books. :)
The story starts with a bang – almost literally – and keeps up the thrilling pace. I didn’t find a single page boring or superfluous, and that isn’t the case about all sci-fi books out there. What I liked straight away is that we know a bit more about what is going on than the protagonists, and that makes it all the more nerve-wracking. I’m also pleased that that the author has included a woman in the main trio.
The story takes us into space and to another planet, and it combines the thrill of new discoveries, doubtful friends and exotic threats with a nice philosophical touch. You can feel that the author has put a lot of thought into what kind of message he wants to convey, and I echo his sentiments and outlook on life. A lot of issues crop up in the book, cleverly – but not overly – criticizing human behaviour with its many dangerous aspects.
This book is Book 1 of a series, and I will certainly pick up Book 2 when it comes out. Although the story ends on a cliffhanger, it didn’t leave me frustrated, only thoughtful and entertained in equal measure. The lovely illustrations and quotes / poems added to the appeal of the book, as was also the case with “India Was One” by An Indian.
That aside, the book was a rather compelling read: a sci-fi adventure but a story with social commentary. One that has you feeling a little uncomfortable (because you know it's true) at the message being conveyed.
Three astronauts are on an important mission. It’s the last for one of them and the first for another. They are heading for a planet that may have water, and if there’s water, there may be other discoveries to be made. The journey is bumpy. Very, very, very bumpy. Loss of contact with control is beyond distressing, but they manage to land, albeit unconventionally. They've landed somewhere. Not back at base—it’s obvious from their surroundings—but terra firma at least. American terra firma. Or is it? All they have to do is find some people, some civilization, some means of communication to let base know the mission was incomplete but that they are safe. That’s all. Can’t be too hard, can it, despite the unfamiliar terrain?
Despite the fact I couldn't engage with the characters—they were a little bland—it wasn't hard to be drawn into the story. The author has obviously thought very hard about something he needed to say and used his creativity and imagination to do so. It worked.
And of course, it perpetuates that ever-present question…do we really know what's out there?
I received a complimentary copy of this book in order to review it.
