It's just good sci-fi and I definitely recommend reading this, and will be looking forward to a sequel.
But sometimes readers just want to have fun. Thank goodness for books like Glitch Mitchell and the Unseen Planet. Philip Harris gives us a Flash Gordon-like serial adventure that takes your breath away, with cliffhanger chapter endings, strange alien life-forms, comedy, death, and destruction. Yeah, you guessed it. This book is a lot of fun.
So when you feel like you need a break from turning to the next page in Proust’s Remembrance of Things Past, Glitch Mitchell’s got your back. Get your copy, now!
Glitch Mitchell and the Unseen Planet (clever title) is an exciting sci-fi adventure with more twists and turns than a rollercoaster! The concept alone made this sound like a fun read, sort of like a sci-fi take on Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, only instead of winning a trip to a magical candy factory, Glitch wins a trip to NASA where he finds himself amidst a war started by terrorists. Oh, and there are aliens.
Earth gets a more exciting make over with this action adventure sci-fi. Don't miss out!
How to begin? First let me say this, I think the book is actually geared for middle school due in part to the premise of the book and the way it is set up. The book is set up differently from anything else I have read. It was helpful that I first read the introduction by the author. What he has written is actually a comic book in book form minus the pictures. Each chapter begins with a recap of what happened in the previous chapter. At first, I found this a bit awkward; but as the story progressed, it somehow felt right. It was like each chapter was a new episode from the comic book only you didn't have to wait a month for the next episode to come out.
The story develops rapidly and before I knew it I found my self in another world along with Glitch, a self conscious geeky nerd with a love for aliens, other worlds, outer space movies and books about Martians, Doctor Zheng and Captain Anderson with all kinds of creepy crawly things, burning acid rain, rock people and sea monsters. How Glitch, the doctor and the captain manage to escape all of this is unbelievable and I guess that is what makes the story soooo grabbing. I found myself flipping each page quickly so I could find out how they got out of this mess only to discover something worse was in the next chapter.
The author doesn't really develop the characters or build the alien world. There are bones; but not much meat. Glitch, though, did grow some and it was good to see him survive. Everything happens so fast and furious that there is barely time to take a breath. Remember, this is a comic book scenario; but the author was very descriptive so it was easy to visualize this strange alien world.
Ahhhh, he did leave a couple of doors open for future episodes. I would be interested in reading how Glitch handles the next adventure.
