Cover Thoughts: It works well I feel
Review: It took me a week to read this. I read it allot slower then I normally read. It was an interesting tale filled full of things I haven’t really come across before. The whole idea of lockstep is most interesting, but definitely not something I want to be part of.. I had it mostly figure out by the end. I like the random twists and turns there were a few unexpected ones for me.
There is some science stuff in here that I did not follow. At first I was trying really hard to figure out the full details of Lockstep and then I just realized it’s a book and I am not a science person. Once I removed the whole sleep thirty, awake for one, age slow, age fast and so on, I enjoyed the book allot more.
I liked Toby, I liked Corva. I enjoyed the other characters. The denners are also an interesting twist. It’s always weird trying to connect with a male pragmatist, but Toby really reminds me of Kevin. Kevin does the same thing, thinking logically through of scenario. Toby handles the pressure well.
There could have been so much more to the ending. It was a really long book. But the ending needed just that little more, something.
