'He recalled Garikoff's face, rough-hewn and dark, his eyes piercing as he gave Panglor the orders to fly. Blackmailing b*st*rd. For a cent Panglor would have killed him and walked out, but at that point he didn't really have much choice; they had him outnumbered, and they had guns. So he'd gone along with the orders-- not that he'd had a better offer in sight, anyway-- and Garikoff's goons weren't likely to leave him unobserved now, so he'd have to carry the orders through. There was just one question: What kind of work did the b*st*rds have up their sleeves for him at D3, and what were his chances of coming out of it alive? ' Location 80 of 3886, Panglor by Jeffrey Carver.
Later, he can only return home by seeing logic in an illogical planet. Good thing he has help. I only wish Garikoff's motivations for the intrigue were clearer. (Minus one star)
Since this is a re-release of a classic, it is well edited with clear breaks between scenes.
The story revolves around a character who appears to suffer from either a severe emotional trauma or some sort of psychosis who is forced into a conspiracy involving industrial sabotage. Alo,ng the way, he picks up a stowaway and an alien (both of which could maybe use more character development, especially the alien). However, I find the world they land on interesting as it resembles certain dream realities and the Flux which appears to submit itself to a form of lucid dreaming.
When the novel gets to the meat of the story, it's pure fun and a mixture of science and fantastic logic. I enjoyed the book enough to go out and buy another of Carver's novels, which I am currently reading.
