Book Review: The Switch by A.W. Hill

Publisher: Curiosity Quills

Publishing Date: August 2017

ISBN:9781974278220

Genre: SciFi

Rating: 4.1/5

Publishers Description: Five travelers lost in a parallel reality—If they get home, will it be the same place they left behind?

Review: A real interesting take on alternate or parallel worlds to our own that develop different realities.

For the first few chapters I wanted to discontinue reading due to Jacobus’ constant whining about his current state. The movement kind of pools at your feet and drips from your bleeding eyes. BUT, and it is not a real big butt, the pace quickly escalates into a world hopping adventure with plenty of strange interactions to motivate your interest. The characters are well built but lack a bit of depth due to stunted development i.e. what you see is what you get.

The world building is a bit crazy and at times not descriptively apt. If you are not a SciFi buff it may be confusing rather than riveting as attested to in a few reviews. I thought it was a great novel that demands a series.
