I picked up an advanced reading copy f this book at Comic Con after seeing a panel with Tim Kring I was initially interested because I m a fan Boarding House of Hunks of Heroes but I wasn t sure what to expect from his novel I m glad I gave it a chanceI liked the premisef this book taking a series f historical events and adding a sci fi twist to them and for the most part I really enjoyed the writing style I would have liked to have seen f Chandler and the development Bec (The Demonata, of his LSD induced powers and lessf Melchior and agent uery but I m assuming that their parts will be important for the rest The Further Mishaps of Charlie Chumpkins of the trilogy and that is why so much time was devoted to them Because the narrative switches pointsf view in each chapter it takes a while to get into the story and invested in the characters but about a third f the way through I was sufficiently sucked in I m definitely going to continue reading this series Boy was I disappointed I had wanted to read this when I first saw it n the bookstore shelves but it failed in a big way I really wanted to like this book but I just couldn t is it contradictory to say that it felt like too much was going n but at the same time nothing actually happens I loved the TV series Heroes and I loved the concept f secret government experiments with mind altering drugs ESP and JFK assassination connections so it should be a hit with me right Wrong The story made no sense at all and the writing style really confused the plot and action as if Kring and Peck had tried too hard to be concise with their writing to give a frenetic energetic pace but in so doing they seem to have missed ut coherence it was hard to see how any f the plot points actually connected Another thing that annoyed me was that a lot Our Planet: Our Home of the elementsf the story were just thrown into the mix because it seemed like a cool idea at that particular moment when they were writing but it doesn t actually help r relate to the story TV showrunner Tim Kring and his cowriter the experienced novelist Dale Peck have produced an alternate history mashup f mind control LSD conspiracy and the Kennedy assassination that goes n a bit too long with characters that showed promise for a while until well the damn thing exhausted me The authors beat the dead horse f a premise with a stick that got bloody about half way through Given that we know the Journeys of Frodo: An Atlas of J.R.R.Tolkien's The Lord of the Rings outcomef the story the nly reason to slog through would be the compelling characters and an intriguing premise Both started well for me I liked the scion f the ruling class turned philosopher who was targeted by the CIA for the LSD experiment I liked the malevolent renegade the disillusioned FBI agent even the mysterious Asian whore runner But not enough to care when the threads f the plot got inevitably knotted into a ball just how and why the strands got straightened ut Oddly Stephen King covered a lot f the same territory with some f the same problems length insistent trope bsession in his novel 112263 He s better at it than Kring Peck Pity as I think this is the first f a trilogy Oy This book starts A Stepdaughter In Heat (Daddy Daughter Sex Stories) out in the year 1963 Chandler Forrestal was just an innocent victim He met Naz a nice woman who spiked his drinknly she didn t slip him a roofie Naz gave Chandler a bunch f LCD As if things aren t ut f this world crazy enough when you are under the influence f mind altering drugs Chandler Suddenly Chandler starts experiencing some mental changes Chandler believes that he has uncovered the true facts about President Kennedy s assassination Everyone is involved fromthe Mafia CIA and FBI to the Russians It is going to be In the End one roller coaster ride Shift is bookne f the Gates f Orpheus Trilogy I have never read anything by either Mr Kring r Mr Peck I thought this book had some good potential I admit though that it started ut really slowly for me In fact I put this book down about a third f the way into it and walked away It wasn t because I didn t like this book but because it too me a while to get into it I wanted the book to move faster then it did Once I got past the slow part I found this book pretty interesting If you like conspiracy theories then you may like this book and should check ut this book but you better hurry before this bookShifts ut f bookstores Shift is an alternate history novel written by the guy who made up Heroes the TV show and another author Together they have written a solid readable novel with a great twist n a timeless uestion If you could.
