I’m tempted to make a review composed completely of gifs so you can see the progression of my facial expressions while reading this. But I won’t.
This book is amazing! The aha! moments just kept coming and coming and coming — he did an exceptional job with pacing, and I care about good pacing A LOT.
I cared about all of the characters, even the snotty ones, and especially the MC, Mike. He has eidetic memory, and if you know anything about that it comes with a whole slew of interpersonal relationship issues, but Mike was a really likeable guy. Astute, compassionate, thorough, logical…CALM. He felt so calm, and I found that incredible considering some of the twists that happen.
Now, I can’t assess whether or not Clines’ science was correct (so not my field), but it seemed logical enough to me. And the story! Gah! It really does just sweep you up. I had a couple nights worth of book hangovers (and chills) reading this. I didn’t want to put it down at all!
Also, can we talk about how awesome the cover art is on this one? I know I don’t do that often, but I’m really digging this cover! It makes even more sense after you read the book, so if you like sci-fi or suspense novels, READ THIS NOW.
Okay, one gif. Sorry not sorry ☺
I received this book from Blogging for Books for this review.
