Review by

With a clunky mix of science fiction and a myriad of other genres this foray in to different territory is not Patterson at his best. The plot is suited to a shorter novel, a lesson learned later is his stellar career, yet that won't make reading this any easier. There are no memorable action scenes and despite the unwieldy attempts at a romantic angle there is still enough of a hook to keep those pages turning. Patterson's art is still on display here, creating a story which sucks readers in, despite the flaws. It's something different and is territory explored further with The Lake House and the Maximum Ride series.
