The Order of the Dimension plans to take control of the world by sending people to different dimensions and using them to meet their needs. Those who are considered worthless are sent to the black hole in the dimensions.
I can't wait to read the next one.
It's funny actually, when I first read a synopsis of this book I couldn't help but think of the Remedial Chaos Theory episode of the show "Community". I say this because in this episode of "Community", it explores different timelines with different outcomes, then each other including one known as the darkest timeline.
Anyway, I digress - This novel features top physics student Jane Kremowski whose work leads her to the multiverser, which allows her access to multiple dimensions.
Jane's life soon turns upside down when the dastardly, deviant Dr. Anton Zelov gains knowledge of the multiverser's capabilities. Zelov, the trilogy's antagonist, has a plan to create a New World Order in which he is the ultimate ruler of all the proportions.
First off, I must express that I am no real Sci-Fi buff, this is not my typical genre. However, the concept of the plot intrigued me... so I agreed to give it a read.
I actually read through this book quite quickly, it was an enjoyable read.
However, in parts the story seemed a bit choppy, like it could have employed a bit more detail to fill the readers in on what was happening. Also, some of the physics terms were also a bit confusing for non-science folk.
Ultimately, this book is an intriguing read, that kept my interest through the whole book, and I could see this plot being used for a film one day. Whilst it could use a bit of editing, I can see this book doing quite well in the YA category. It seems like the type of storyline that young adults would devour.
It’s a little like Sliding Doors: an intriguing ‘what if instead’, but much more so. Here, there are multiple alternative existences. It’s definitely a refreshing alternative to the now often-clichéd time travel story.
This is certainly a breathtaking, high-speed ride; the action is relentless and the story line strong as heroine Jane is thrust one after the other into varying versions of her life story and situation as she encounters each alternative dimension. So hold tight! Often in nail-biting peril, she strives to save earth (and presumably any other civilisations there may be, or am I being fanciful here?) from domination by the dastardly love-to-hate villain Anton Zelov.
As other reviewers have said, Dimensions would really lend itself to adaptation to the big screen.
A very commendable, entertaining and enjoyable debut. Sci-fi aficionados will love it!
I found the story line intriguing and was excited to start reading it, but like other awesome sci-fi stories the writing leans more to a drier cerebral writing as opposed to an emotional read. Unfortunately that makes it harder to connect to the characters on a deeper level. I enjoyed the story a lot, but longed for the connection with Jane and her plight, and with Anton and his evil plan. I feel like this would make an exciting movie conversion.
