Peter's journey begins in a depressive state, and thankfully, only lasted through part 1. Once he began training, and befriended Julie, I knew things would be looking up for him. Although I loved all the little "sub plots", I was concerned that the author wouldn't be able to wrap everything up by the end of part 4, but he surprised me. Now, I can only hope that Paul Kohler decides to write a sequel, so I can find out what happens with his journal.
Judging from the writing, predictability of characters and plot, and the stilted dialogue and narrative style, not to mention the ninth-grade vocabulary and obvious use of a thesaurus to keep from replicating word choices, the author is angling for a cable TV series!
The blurbs for this initial book in the series vastly oversell the capacity of this author to engage any but a young adult reader, and that is how this book should be positioned, in my opinion. It harkens back to my first attraction and experiences in the spec fiction genre, back in the early 1960s, when I couldn't get enough of this stuff, but Linear Shift even pales in comparison to Heinlein's YA bibliography.
I lasted through about 2/3 of this novel before setting it aside. I don't plan on getting back to it anytime soon, if at all. I wish to be challenged, and this doesn't provide that important attribute of good fiction.
