A tale of luck lost
on July 24, 2017
The description for this book on Amazon and Goodreads is apt: It would be very hard to describe what this book is about.
Yes it is well written and the story is very imaginative and creative. But how do you describe what happened and why? Why is the big question. I'm not so sure there is an answer there, but I'll try.
Basically, this is the story of a man who is very lucky in life but loses that luck. And is sent on a journey to discover what is really important in life.
Malachi Constant is once the richest man in America of some future date. One day, he meets a space, or more truthfully, a traveler of the space-time continuum — One Winston Niles Rumfoord. Rumfoord, because of his own travels, tells Malachi his future. And soon enough, Malachi become Unk, a Martian in the Martian army. To tell too much would be to ruin the effect of the book, but enough to say, this is a story that once you are hooked, you will want to continue reading, if for nothing else to find out what is the point of the story. I think by the end, you will have your answer.
