Stunningly Original

Where the Futures End,  by Parker Peevyhouse

51ee6OHBLiL__SX328_BO1,204,203,200_ Where the Futures End is five interconnected stories with different characters that are bound by the same choices, though their worlds keep changing  as each story moves bit by bit into future. A future where technology turns everyone’s life into a reality show.

First, the writing, oh the writing!  The words on each page just carried me away. Now, the story. It’s like peaking behind a curtain as each scene moves into another and keeps the reader questioning, what next? Is what Dylan seeing real or imaginary? Is it the product of a troubled teen mind,  or a crushing desire to go back to a place where he felt loved, normal and accepted that causes him to see the things he sees and feels.

Or Brixney, a young woman who is living under dire circumstances and under the deceptive view of cameras where everyone is part of a global feed and where many jostle for attention by providing the masses with exhilarating or shocking feed in order to gain lucrative advertising contracts. That’s when something incredible happens, something that changes everything and gives the reader a clue about the reality of Dylan’s fantasies and what it means for the future. (No Spoilers here, but it is jaw dropping)

But the best part for me was the writing. It is off the chart original, and the story is one to think about as you read and reread just to make sure you didn’t miss anything.

  1. wow the blurb sounds utterly original and mind-boggling! and if the writing is that good… a winner! gotta love it when the writer just carries you away like that! I have read books of premises and stories I didn’t care much for just because the writing just kept me going! I hope one day to write like that! 🙂
