Wow! It's 'Sliders', 'Sliding Doors', 'Butterfly Effect' and just awesome all over. This book actually helped (a little) to cure my regretfull tendencies. I have spent too long wondering 'what if' - how many 'other mes' are thinking the same, wishing they had what I have. Not to say I won't wonder from time to … Continue reading Book Review #20: Dark Matter (by Blake Crouch)
A chillingly brilliant end to the trilogy. I am thankful for the Net and how it has led me to this challenge and this book. It is fascinating to see how close to reality this book is in its reflection of striving toward the full depth of virtual reality. It is also to note the … Continue reading Book Review #19: Shinkei (by Gillian Rubinstein)
It amazes me how far the concepts of 'augmented reality' and 'virtual reality' have come. How many books, movies, and other creative works Have spawned from this concept. There is more within, which leads us to ponder the more beyond!
Publised over a decade before the Matrix it is a shame the movie trilogy doesn't pay more homage to this 'entering the game' imagery.

Yay, "I" am a main character Yay, a fictional book about Role Playing A deeper look at who we were, are and want to be. It's not as simple when it's real.
A beautiful story that left me wanting more but also finished itself. Wolfchild sparked an interesting question: Is the protagonist always the main character? For me - Raw was very much the protagonist where Morwenna was the main character. Let me know what you think about this question and, if you've read Wolfchild, my answer.
Glad I got to this one. Some classic lines and interesting imagery, especially for the 19th Century. Enjoyed!
So much fun! A great ending (?!) The Village meets The Originals meets Genesis and Revelations Makes me want to read more, but more so makes me want to write more!
I am so glad I had the 'reason' to keep reading this trilogy (and thankfully a reason to also continue to the third) this year as part of my Book Challenge. I would very much enjoy seeing this as a miniseries, three short TV movies, that sort of thing. Makes me wish I knew people … Continue reading Book Review #11: Fratricide, Werewolf Wars, and the Many Lies of Andrea Paddington (by Stephen Bills)
