The review is concise and thorough. it not only tells the premise of the story but gives very vivid descriptions of the characters. Although sci-fi is not one of my regular genres to read, this review definitely makes me want to read Patch Man in its entirety.

The book has a lot of things going on, from the war, the science fiction, the prophecy. Sadly, this book isn't my type of read. However, lovers of sci-fi are truly going to enjoy this one.
Great review!

This is a well written review. This gave me a well rounded summary of the book and what the book is about. I was intrigued by the patch man how he is an older male/but a child it appears in a parallel world. I also liked the descriptions of the different worlds, although this is not my usual genre I was intrigued. I would not read the book not because of the review, but the topic is not something I would read. I also liked the portion where the reviewer also was able to find some of the typographical errors.

Great theme about the ending of a raging war and bringing about peace. I like the significance of the little girl, Meesha. I appreciate your review, thanks.

It sounds as if an epic battle happens in this story. I like the elements it contains, a girl trying to survive in a labyrinth that's full of twisted worlds and magic power that is so mighty that can bring a person back to life. This is just my story style. It'll be next in my 'to read' list. Thanks for the review!

Post by jjenks86 » 26 Feb 2018, 23:25

I'm not a fan of science fiction so this didn't sound all that interesting to me, but I could honestly see this plot go for a series of books and follow Meesha as she grows into herself and her powers. I think that would be very interesting to see the characters grow over time.

Based on the review, I think I need to give this book a chance. The story line seems intriguing. I'm not typically one that likes fantasy novels, but the review is giving me something to think about. I really might need to give this novel a try and expand my horizons.

I love sci-fi. I just wish so many of them didn't fall back on fulfilling prophecy. That being said, a man that can patch a young girl back to life is something new, so I'm going to give this a go thanks for the free book.
