"I am struck by the clever combination of science and plausible science fiction, and am impressed with the sensitivity and obvious love for Alaska and its Native people that pours through the pages." (Glenn E. Shaw, Professor of Physics, University of Alaska Fairbanks)
Sadly the author is so determined to sing the praises of Alaska that the characters are all so idealised that they have no intersting or engaging aspects at all. The concept is interesting but the story lacks any drama as there is essentially no conflict within the tale. Science-fiction at its least enthralling. A great disappointment.
"the globe was spinning. it was red. then it was purple. then it spun faster, then it was pink.then it got smaller. then it got bigger, then it made a noise. then it spun even faster..."
Very painful to listen to..
Written by a fifth grader who took 8th grade physics.
