I give this book 1 out of 4 stars. Unfortunately, the positive aspects were outweighed by the negative aspects. The concept of the book was good. I can’t say too much about it without giving spoilers, but the author thought outside the box with a lot of it. Unfortunately, the important scientific explanations didn’t really make sense. The outcomes were plausible, but not with the explanations that were given. The subject could have been researched a little bit better.
My favorite part of the book was the use of multiple characters to tell the story. It made the story more interesting and provided depth. The author did a good job tying the different stories of each of the characters together. The author also provided background information for all of the characters. The background tied all of the key players together and added clarity to certain parts of the story. However, some of the background was long-winded and unnecessary. Over half of the book was made up of background information. While this did help me get to know the characters, it started to take away from the story. The book relied too heavily on the character development and not enough on the story itself. As a result, it lacked a well-developed plot.
The biggest reason for the rating that I gave was that the book as a whole was not well-written. The writing was really scattered. I started to get frustrated while I was reading this book because it didn’t flow. The pacing was also inconsistent, and the tenses kept switching back and forth between the present tense and past tense at inappropriate times. It was also pretty obvious right away that the book had not been edited. A few errors in a book is expected, but there were numerous errors throughout this one. Some of the errors were major and took away from my understanding of the book.
Overall, I think that this book revolves around a unique concept and has the potential to be turned into a great novel. Unfortunately, the potential was not reached. It still needs some work. The writing needs to be fine-tuned, and the book needs to be edited. I would love to see another copy of it down the road so that I could bump up the rating.
