Review – Offworld
Reviewed by Deena Peterson
I’ve found another author that is ‘must read’ for My Bookshelf…check him out and see if he doesn’t end up on yours as well!
A Robin Parrish novel is a mind-bending, imagination-blowing experience that can take you right out of this world…in this case, literally! Thank goodness this isn’t a trilogy as his first novels were…
…I don’t think I could take the suspense!
“Offworld” has four of our finest astronauts on an expedition to Mars…everything seems to go according to plan…until their return to Earth.
The four return to a planet void of life…people, animals…gone. Slightly reminiscent of “Planet of the Apes”, with no apes!
Where did everyone go? Who could be behind a mass evacuation, extermination, or execution of the human race…and the animal population? Are these four the last of our kind…
…or are there still others?
With cunning, cleverness and wit, Robin Parrish has created another novel of fantasy that will require your imagination to stretch to near impossible lengths, then come back again. In the end, it all makes sense…but the ride to the end is one you won’t want to miss.
I’ve found another author that is ‘must read’ for My Bookshelf…check him out and see if he doesn’t end up on yours as well! I’m giving “Offworld” five out of five bookmarks, with a ‘green’ flashlight…runs off of solar power to help you navigate those dark corners.
In the midst of my myriad piles of reading material, I’m a pastor’s wife, a full time mom to two teens at home, a home schooler, and a women’s ministry leader. We have a total of six children all together; our second oldest daughter just got married this month!
My reading material covers all genres of Christian fiction and non-fiction, with a sprinkling of general market books in the mix. Because of my unusual success at blogging about books, both of my teens have created their own book review blogs–they just rarely post due to homework and chores:-)
Lots of people ask me why I review books. I tell them three reasons: 1) I love Jesus and want to honor Him with my life, 2) I love books and authors immensely, and 3) I love readers and sharing with others. I’m always on the lookout for a debut author, a little known title, a book others won’t seem to touch, and that title that’s a little left of center.
And I’m NEVER without something to read!
