Even though this is primarily a young adult scifi story, I did enjoy it very much. The description of other realities, or parallel worlds, was well done and is a good beginning scifi story of this sort for young teens. I look forward to reading more from this author, and will recommend her books to my grandchildren when they are old enough.
What I liked: Ethan is a great kid. He’s just the sort of relatable protagonist I love spending time with in a book. His family situation is very realistic, built on modern issues many families face today. Even though this was written about places and people in Britain I did not feel alienated just because I happen to live on the wrong side of the Atlantic.
What I didn’t like: The talking. The vast majority of this story is conversations explaining things. I would probably say that more than half the book characters are sitting down telling other characters what happened. While all the information is important, and some of this must naturally come from the first person perspective choice, I kept wishing that Ethan and his friend were interacting with the technology more and having lectures about the technology and its consequences less.
Also, why is there a ferret on the cover? That never seems to be explained in any of the info dump scenes.
I would recommend this book for anyone fond of child-centric science fiction, people looking for positive stories that boys can enjoy, and those who like a fast-paced read you can finish in an afternoon.
The central message I get from this book reminds me of Candide. He ultimately learns that the life he hates so much is actually the best of all possible worlds.
Although written for ages ten and above, Whole New World resonated with this fifty-two year old man. All the bad things that happen to us create the lives we have and the people we are.
I read this entire book today. I kept transferring it from one Kindle device to another. My lawn didn’t get mowed. It flows smoothly, reads easily, and contains a deep message. It's an easy, entertaining, engrossing read, reminiscent of J.K. Rowling's first book.
Execution of Justice: CIA Military Covert Operations Book
This was an interesting book and one that I enjoyed reading. I was rooting for Ethan and hoping only for the best for him and the people that he cares for. It's a light sci-fi story with a lot of heart and I truly enjoyed the way it ended.
It's a fun read for all ages, with plenty of intrigue and adventure along with some valuable lessons and a few important discussions -- all under the umbrella of good fiction. I especially like the UK setting and the references to British things I love (especially tea). I recommend this to every reader who enjoys a good, imaginative adventure!
