If you were to find yourself at the edge of a dying world with a lingering sense of reality, would you simply fade into the nothingness or would you fight for everything you hold dear? This assertive question is at the heart of the thought-provoking book Ubiety, for this abstract book was designed to help people emerge into reality and find the truth whilst questioning both what could and should be.
Join Adam in a whirlwind of past and present madness, diving into the many mysteries which will uncover bittersweet secrets to see if he can save his fate and somehow put the chaos set in his mind at rest. However, be aware, this will certainly not be an easy read but remember that some of the greatest fortunes lie on the darkest paths.
Well, that's clear as mud. I'll admit that metaphysical fiction is way outside my wheelhouse, so maybe it's just me, but I did not get this one at all. To me, it seems like a whole lot of flowery language strung together, and at times it even felt a little like stream of consciousness writing. Whatever the intent, this one could've done with a good bit of editing. The very long, run-on sentences and commas placed almost haphazardly throughout drove me a little crazy. I don't know if the grammatical errors were on purpose or not, but the only thing they accomplished for me was to distract from the story such as it is. Basically, what this one amounted to for me was that I kept wishing the author would just speak plainly and for the love of God, use a period every now and then. I mean, there were parts that had two people speaking in the same sentence? paragraph? I'm not even sure at this point. What I am sure of is this is most definitely not the book for me.
