A Good Scifi Tale!

  • Apr 29, 2009

I really enjoyed this possible future where a membrane envelops the Earth causing a condition called the "spin" where time on Earth is passing slowly while the rest of the universe is aging at super fast speed. The characters face most of the story worrying that it will mean the end of days in about 50 years because the sun will age so fast that it go nova about that time.

Three young people, Tyler, Jason and Diane are caught up with the whole thing and the book focuses on the tight bonds between the three as they grow and become intregal parts of the Earth's efforts to find a solution. Meanwhile Jason & Diane's authoritative father, E.D., looms over them trying to control everything that they do.

I didn't quite give the book 5 stars because it is told in a flashback type of mode which I really was not crazy with. The flashback portion was extremely interesting, where what was supposed to be happening in the present day was difficult to understand (until the very end) and many times boring.

What did you think of this review?
