Review by Marlene Engel
Three groups of teenagers, from different states, attend a movie screening of the comic book series Eons & Empires. Over the next twenty years, their lives intertwine in ways that results in a captivating plot. You will see them transition from immature teenagers to angry, broken adults who have to deal with much heartache and loss.
The tone of this book is more dark and sad than the typical books that I read. However, the author does an amazing job telling the story that I was captivated throughout the entire book. As events happen, there is this strong intensity that draws you in and holds you hostage until the very end.
With a cast of unforgettable characters you will not soon forget, In Some Other World, Maybe will take you on an emotional roller coaster, but will leave you rooting for the characters despite their flaws and setbacks.
I found this book to be an enjoyable read that showcases a unique view of the connections of family and friendships. But it was the complex cast of characters who continuously delivered dialogue that was so emotion packed and real that it was nearly impossible to put this book down.
