30th Century Escape is a book about time travel with erotic and scientific themes as part of the story. Mark Kingston Levin, Ph.D. wrote expertly about physics and living as a bisexual woman. Dr. Levin’s gripping novel presented a credible view of a 30th-century woman’s thoughts in the 21st century. As a bisexual woman, I thought Dr. Levin expertly depicted how I feel about sexuality. The tale was also very well developed before the introduction of an erotic secondary, which I appreciated.
I was thoroughly engrossed in this story from the first few chapters. It is entertaining, humorous at times, and practical always. I almost was lost in the physics discussion, but Dr. Levin managed to balance just enough details to seem knowledgeable without overwhelming the reader. There were no elements that disagreed with me while I was reading. Dr. Levin showed expert balance with the scientific, sexual, and temporal travel factors in the journey that is 30th Century Escape.
The story of a bisexual woman finding how to express her feelings really involved me in the story. I have myself been trying to figure this out myself and related very much to the main character, Jennifer. I have truly learned more about that aspect of myself. Dr. Levin’s description of the activities were ideal circumstances as far as I could imagine. I appreciate the tasteful, balanced, detailed, and accurate depictions of eroticism.
Another facet of the book depicts Jennifer as highly intelligent but humble at the same time. Dr. Levin continuously reminds the reader she is a highly intelligent and sexual character. A beautiful picture of life in the regions of Hawaii and Polynesian Islands has introduced to me a deeper understanding of their culture and customs. I also appreciated the specific, informed jargon used.
Dr. Levin created an adult book with an appropriate level of vocabulary and erotic in the way of maturely handling a bi-sexual relationship among scientifically-driven, intelligent characters. It had just a perfect ending. I would call it a fairy-tale ending, but it is not a fairy tale. I would recommend this for any college-educated person. I certainly did enjoy entering Dr. Levin’s world.
I used the search on my Kindle Fire for about 20 words in the book, mostly sailing terms. I did notice some mistakes, a misplaced modifier or two, mistaken word, awkward or muddled wording. None of these were very distracting from the story, but I did note them. While I suppose I expected perfection, it was a fantastic tale that was completely believable. This book is four out of four stars as far as I’m concerned. I loved it and am grateful to have had the chance to enjoy it.
