We all believe this is the only existing world in the universe. Thinking about something complicated and untouchable makes us believe it is impossible. What if there is another you somewhere out there? What if you live somewhere else, and you don’t know that?

Gary Jackson is a regular student who is planning his life. The love of his life, Michelle Peyton, is a nurse, and they both want to get a flat together after Gary finishes his education process. As Gary was walking across the street, a truck almost hit him because of the pen he dropped earlier. In some other universe, Gary got hit by a truck, and he ended up in a life-threatening condition. Gary, who got hit by a truck, had a dream of himself killing a person. As he lays in a hospital bed shaken from his dreams, Gary, who avoided collision with a truck, is imprisoned because of the murder. What has happened? Is he going to be prepared to prove his innocence?

Wordlines by Adam Guest is a spectacular novel that messes with dimensions and physics. To be fair, I thought that I would not understand a thing in the book because I find time dimensions quite hard to understand. I was wrong on so many levels. Adam Guest wrote a masterpiece. The writing just flows through the book with simple expressions and words. I understood everything, and the characters were perfectly represented. I love Gary and Michelle specifically because they are young, and they are fighting to have a nice and proper life in the future. I also feel sad for Gary because of his situation with the murder. There are a lot of tense scenes and action in the book. I simply loved this book from the beginning to the end. I am impressed with the way the author has put together this book, so it is complicated, understandable, and intriguing at the same time. The best thing in the book was how Guest explained the function of parallel worlds, and it made my jaw drop. It must have been hard to develop this plot. The author wrote the book in the first person, but every chapter is dedicated to another character.

This book is written exceptionally well, as I have found zero typos, and I am free to say it is edited professionally. There are no graphic scenes present in the book, but there is a bit of profanity that could be found in writing.

I am giving Wordlines a deserving 4 out of 4 stars for a unique and beautiful plot. I have never read a book like this one, and I am glad that I chose it because I didn’t regret it. This is a perfect piece for fiction and sci-fi lovers. This book is for adults only because it is a bit complicated, and it contains vulgar language.

I had my reservations about reading this book because just like you, I thought I wouldn't be able to follow a story in such a complex setting. However, I'm inclined to read it for myself because of your review. Thank you!

I read this book and I found it fascinating for the intertwining of the various timelines. I think the author took great advantage of the "what if" theme. Thank you for your great review!

It sounds like a wonderful book, although I find it difficult to believe that the same person can exist at the same time in two different dimensions. If Gary had gotten killed when he was hit by the truck, wouldn't that change the entire future of one dimension when compared to the other? Anyway, it seems like an interesting and thought-provoking book. Thanks for a great review!

The different worlds sounds like an interesting concept. I'm unsure, though. Novels like this tend to give me a headache. Might be worth a try anyway. Thanks.

I also enjoyed this book and its interesting concept. It's kind of scary to know that someone can hijack your consciousness and commit a crime without suffering the consequences.
