Overcast (The 01:23 Bardo, Book 1) Rating:
So… now that I’ve let this book steep and simmer in my brain for 2 days… I give it two chubby thumbs up.
As much as I would like to give you all of the details that made me stay up all night reading, I will leave them for you to discover.
One of the reasons I found this book so enjoyable was that it was
totally unique. The setting was familiar and yet… having lived in New Jersey my whole life, it was very unfamiliar. The author did a nice job with context rich inner dialog and character relationships to keep me up to speed and the characters believable.
The tale… the actual root of the story was at first bewildering and in the end… really cool. I mean cool, like it stretches your imagination. It’s not the normal story within a story… it’s more like a puzzle within a story.
I wish I could break my “no spoiler rule” and tell you more about this book. I will tell you this… there are enough unanswered questions for me to look forward to reading more in this series.
