Entertaining and the complete opposite of boring, Crossline will sink it’s hooks in you at the first page and hurl you Faster-than-light to the end. Hang on tight for this exciting ride!
Russ always catches me off guard. I'll read three quarters of the story thinking, "I know exactly where he's going with this." Then by the end of the book I'm yelling "Never saw that coming!". It's an irreverent romp that kept me wishing for more. I usually prefer hard science fiction, very technical. So it's refreshing that Russ's fantastic stories catch my sense of whimsey, and lead me down a path of pure fun.
It seemed like the usual sci-fi, if a bit laid back, with a few one liners that made me smirk. Then suddenly, at almost the end of the story, out came the Christopher Moore. Totally off the wall and more laugh out loud funny. Then it stopped.
I almost think that those funnier parts were done by a different hand. The end of the story just seemed a bit rushed.
NOTE TO THE EDITOR:
Wreaks means to cause, inflict or vent:
Wreaks havoc; wreaks vengence
Reeks means a very strong unpleasant odor:
Reeks like kerosene
At first I thought it was a go to another planet Sci-Fi book, but somehow it morphed into a different Sci-Fi idea. I will not spoil it for any one who reads the review by saying what.

The story starts when Marcus Powell sets out to fly Crossline, the most powerful, elegant, and sophisticated spacecraft known to man. The engines, based on the Hunsucker's relative isolation theory of quantum physics, propels him through space at seven times the speed of light. Yikes!
The engine works, but that's where the problems start. I won't spoil any of the story, and leave it to you to follow the twists and turns. Lets just say the story comes full-circle - or is it a figure of eight - and propels the reader along at a rate not far short of the speed of light.
I forgot to mention, whilst Crossline is not overtly a comical novel, some of the scenes are hilarious due to the characters involved. Watch out for...oh, just read it for yourself!
