Time product reviews

The end of the World News: The Human Race extinct in 200 years!

This is the Carter Prophecy and it is irrefutable, expressed in the universal language of numbers. But what if there is still a way to survive the catastrophe? When a coded message from the future turns up amid the cosmic background noise of the Big bang, Reid Malenfant, NASA drop-out turned entrepreneur, diverts his entire space enterprise to find out what it means.

The message gives the coordinates of the asteroid Cruithne, Earth's remote second moon - nobody knows how it got there. Soon, Malenfant, his ex-wife Emma, a super-intelligent child and a disturbed mathematical genius are on their way to Cruithne. What is discovered there is nothing less than a revelation: The secret reason for our existence, visible at last beneath the rippled surface of Time's river.

Can this knowledge save the human race, or even the universe itself?

I must admit, though I really enjoyed this book, it wasn't my favourite of Steven's works. The story is split into 3 main chains, which can be somewhat jarring switching around at times.

Based on current scientific theories, this book holds together quite well, with very few internal inconsistencies... and the few there are could easily be put down to an incomplete understanding of the quantum realm, rather than any lack in the story-telling itself.

I found some of the concepts highly intriguing, especially the storyline following Sheena 5 and her decendants. Makes me glad I don't eat seafood. Wink Icon I'll leave you to find out what that means.

Overall, not the best he's put out, but still a thoroughly enjoyable read.

Product reviews for listing 5339: Five Children and It -  Written by Edith Nesbit

Product image for Five Children and ItWhen Cyril, Anthea, Robert, Jane and their baby brother go digging in the gravel pit, the last thing they expect to find is a Psammead - an ancient Sand-fairy! Having a Sand-fairy for a pet means having one wish granted each day. But the children don't realize all the trouble wishes can cause. This is a timeless classic with an introduction by Quentin Blake, award-winning illustrator and first-ever Children's Laureate (1999-2001).
