    One thought on “Tumbling After

    1. Nicole

      I actually read this book when I was about fourteen At fourteen, it was mesmerizing. Almost a decade later, it still is. I just dug it out of storage and had to reread it immediately.There are a very few books that, when read, seem to remain with you in the back of your head. They color your thinking and set a haze between you and reality for a good long while. It's almost like being drugged, or being in a trance state. Is this just me? Anyways, this was one of those books that did this to me. I [...]

      Wow, okay, um what? Yeah, I just finished this book and it was all right to say the least but it was also really confusing. If you're a reader of comic books this may be a book you'll enjoy because it really had a comic book feel to it. Now that I think of it this book would have been so much better and easier to understand if it were a graphic novel.This book was Flowers in the Attic meets Danielle Steel/Hustler meets Lord of the Rings meets Matrix. For real. If you can't even wrap your head ar [...]

      Witcover's second novel (1997's Waking Beauty is his first) succeeds at all levels. It's an ingenious coming-of-age story, a technological nightmare, and a comment on dystopia, game-playing, sexual awakening, and multiple realities. Though it hints of Philip K. Dick and other SF writers, Tumbling After is wholly original. Set in parallel universes, the novel boasts compelling settings and believable characters whose fates slowly merge. Witcover, who writes with authority and elegance, also mines [...]

      A great concept, and it turned out to feel like such a waste of my reading time. I only finished it because I wanted to know how the storyline worked itself out.I had a hard time figuring out just what I didn't like about this. I think it was that none of the kinds of conflict that make a story have depth felt like they were developed in ways that felt deep. It was all surface, even when it was really well explained. The two main storyline characters (Jack and Kestral) each had internal conflict [...]

    5. Catriona

      For me, like several others here, I only finished this book to find out what happens. Yes, the writing is pretty good, the concepts are potentially fascinating, but the story never grabbed my interest or my imagination. Wasn't one I'd ever recommend to a fellow reader, even a hard core fantasy friendo bad.

    6. Anastasia

      Very neat book. Very well-written and intererting, once you get a bit into it. The ending is twisty and I still need to figure it out.
