Welcome to the land of danger and intrigue, where individuals are legion and non-conformity is the norm. Join me as I explore the many facets of humanity and meet the scum of the earth and its angels incarnate.
That said, on to the review!
Deep Fathom, much like the other books by the same author, extrapolates an amazing possibility and spins it into an amazing story. Set against the backdrop of a world on the verge of self-destruction, this novel is more than just a struggle against real or imagined enemies: it's a struggle to save the world from itself.
There were times when some of the discussion became really confusing and filled with the over-my-head concepts that I tend to just accept and move past. I will admit that it's easier to comprehend things like dark space and dark matter than it is to understand how anti-matter can exist in the material universe. Still, I found the discussion of the existence of Mu to be much more interesting. I have to wonder how much of the author's extrapolations were based on real legends and stories circulating around the Pacific, and how much was purely fabricated.
Despite all the scientific discourse, Deep Fathom still reads pretty easily. Although I approached it with some reluctance--I always do, for some reason--once I got started it was hard to put down. I think you'll see what I mean when you read it for yourself.
Buy this book in paperback or visit the Cosmic Tomes Bazaar for other titles.
