Alpha Max: An Existential Romp through an Absurd Multiverse was written by Mark A. Rayner. After Jeeves appeared in Professor Maximilian Tundra's room, everything changed about his life. That was when he woke up amid MTs, whose genome is similar to humans. Jeeves, a similar version of Max, needs Professor Tundra to save the universe from destruction. Max was skipping from reality to reality. He was instigated to get back to the Trimurti to save the other Tundras. The Trimurti, which the Tundras were in, traveled between universes. Each time the Trimurti skips, they lose a lot of Tundras. Max will have to stop the skipping and likewise the Xaxta plan. Max is the key to saving the multiverse and all reality. When it was time for Max to act, he seemed not to recall anything. He thought he was dreaming. Will Max be able to fulfill his purpose?
The most enjoyable aspect of this book was how the author presented the storyline—this plot is filled with captivating events. The author was immensely good at not only creating the story for the reader to read but also to visualize. Each part of this book was like a scene shown on a screen. Sincerely, I imagined watching this science fiction as a movie.
Another beautiful thing about this book was that every chapter had a specific story to tell, which made me find every part of the book worth reading. Each chapter lures me to anticipate the next. I also liked how Mark A. Rayner commenced the story with Max seeing his lookalike in his room. I was shocked to see Jeeves in Max's room. This is where the author made me develop an interest in the book.
At one point in this book, I wasn't sure of the roles of the Tundras. There were too many deviations or distractions that were contained in this book. I also found many unfamiliar words and sentences like Ist nein traum! and more. Most of the sentences were difficult to translate. I wish the author had made them clear. This was one aspect I considered negative in the book.
I found that Max and Vee's romantic lives lacked much information. The author would have written more on this aspect. I noticed a few errors in the book. The book seems to be professionally edited.
The storyline was very engaging and beautifully organized. I also enjoyed this descriptive writing. The chapters were sequentially outlined and numbered. I rate Alpha Max: An Existential Romp through an Absurd Multiverse by Mark A. Rayner 3 out of 4 stars. I reduced the rating because of the negative factors discussed. I would love to recommend this book to readers who enjoy science fiction stories.
