    A fun and fast paced romp through multiple universesI love the idea of the multiverse It is thrilling to think there are gazillions of universes instead of just our own Some physicists estimate there are at least 10 10 10 7 universes please don t ask me how many that is I have no clue But it looks like farthan merely gazillions and is a number probably most of us are unable to contemplate When I read the description for The Space Between Worlds, I was intrigued A book about a w A fun and fast paced romp through multiple universesI love the idea of the multiverse It is thrilling to think there are gazillions of universes instead of just our own Some physicists estimate there are at least 10 10 10 7 universes please don t ask me how many that is I have no clue But it looks like farthan merely gazillions and is a number probably most of us are unable to contemplate When I read the description for The Space Between Worlds, I was intrigued A book about a woman who travels the mulitiverse Hell yeh, sign me up Cara s job is to travel to Earths in different universes to collect their data, data which is then used for things like predicting the stock market It might sound like a fun job to have, travelling back and forth to different versions of our Earth, but it s a job fraught with danger For instance, if a traverser happens into a universe where her doppelg nger is still alive, she dies in that universe Not a chance I d be willing to take, but Cara has lived a life of hardship and poverty in the Rurals, and this is an opportunity to escape to wealthy Wiley City and eventually become a citizen there.Of course, as you might expect, things are not all that they first seem and there isdanger involved than possibly dying because your doppelg nger still exists Eventually Cara learns that she s wrapped up in a sinister plan andthan her own life is at risk The Space Between Worlds is what I call Sci fi Lite There s not much science, which is preferable to some readers but I prefer hard science fiction Also, though this book is not in the young adult genre, it reads like it is Cara sounds like a 13 year old girl, not a mature young woman I think the author Micaiah Johnson has better writing abilities because every once in a while she ventures into an almost philosophical point of view, digging below the surface Unfortunately she then immediately jumps back to the universe where her writing is surface level, requiring little to no thought on the part of the reader I think this is the author s intent, perhaps thinking she ll have a wider audience if she doesn t dig deep and maybe she s right Unfortunately for me, this meant it didn t hold my interest for very long If this had been hard science fiction, or at least written in the language of an adult novel, I m pretty sure I d be giving it 5 stars instead of 3 It s a hell of a story, with a lot of intrigue, suspense, universe hopping, and a little F F love story thrown in as well One thing I had a hard time accepting is that while the multiverse theory includes a different universe for EVERY possibility different laws of physics, different life forms, same life forms but with a tiny difference in each of the parallel universes, different atoms even in this book we are to believe that of all the different universes they ve discovered, the same exact people exist in each of them This obviously makes no sense because allowing for each possible occurrence means that there is only a slim chance that each of us would ever exist in any given universe All it takes is one of our gazillions of ancestors not sure if that would also be 10 10 10 7 but probably not to have not existed or died before it reproduced and poof We never come into existence It rankled me that everyone alive on Earth Zero also exists or has existed on all the other Earths.I think readers of YA science fiction and young adult novels in general will love this book It s just not the best fit for me My thanks to author Micaiah Johnson, Edelweiss , and Del Rey Books for a digital review copy In exchange, I offer my honest review US publication date August 4, 2020

    Johnson s The Space Between Worlds is a beautifully crafted science fiction novel that breaks all the rules The golden rule of time travel has always been avoiding meeting yourself at all costs Such a time travel paradox can cause all hell to break loose and often does The Space Between Worlds is not a time travel story Indeed, all time flows at the same rate Instead, it posits an interdimensional transfer between dimensions, between worlds, between realities, and going from Earth 0 to Ea Johnson s The Space Between Worlds is a beautifully crafted science fiction novel that breaks all the rules The golden rule of time travel has always been avoiding meeting yourself at all costs Such a time travel paradox can cause all hell to break loose and often does The Space Between Worlds is not a time travel story Indeed, all time flows at the same rate Instead, it posits an interdimensional transfer between dimensions, between worlds, between realities, and going from Earth 0 to Earth 2 leaves open the possibility of meeting one s self But, there are not just two Earths, but infinite worlds, worlds upon worlds into infinity, and approximately 382 alternate Earths have been discovered That s 382 versions of one s self to encounter and cause all kinds of paradoxes No two of the same can exist in the same space There just isn t room Eldrige Corporation has solved that problem The traversers who go into the spaces between reality and enter alternate worlds simply can t be ordinary folks living ordinary lives They have to be people who have been living such dangerous high wire act lives that they have died in most alternate realities Since they do not exist in almost any of the 382 possibilities, there is little chance of their exploding into nothingness They live with enough risk to have died over and over again Their very survival in even one world and ability to travel to others is a miracle.Cara is such a high wire act person In this Earth, Earth 0, she lives out in the desert wastelands where they have to scavenge for a living outside the mighty walls of the cities, out there where a psychotic warlord rules all, a psychotic warlord Nik Nik who thinks she is his plaything and pretends to drown her in the mud over and over She is a desperate one who takes chances no ordinary person would take And for that reason, she is the most amazing traverser ever But what happens when she comes across her doppelg nger, her twin, her duplicate lying in the riverbed.Not only does Cara break the golden rules of never meeting one s self, but she interferes in the affairs of alternate earths It is wonderful how Johnson has taken many of the problems and paradoxes of time travel stories and twisted them into this alternate reality story There is also great world building here from the desert wasteland dwellers Ashland where runners race across the sands in giant vehicles to the religions flourishing in the wastelands The beginning can be a bit confusing because the reader is not let into the secrets of the interdimensional travel and the rules until later Indeed, it is not clear what the purpose of the corporation poking into the interdimensional jet stream is Nevertheless, it will all become clear later on Cara finds almost religious satisfaction in traveling between worlds, explaining how gratifying it is about going places where she is dead and touching things she was never meant to see She also gets to meet people who died long ago in some realities.The writing in this novel is excellent The pace is tremendous and it is hard to put it down Few have done such a great job of combining hard science fiction ideas with interpersonal relations and allowing both to flourish within the story confines The relationship between Cara and Dell is cleverly drawn, beginning with the description of it being a section of the sky utterly dead and empty and that it is two parallel universes too close to touching and that there is a cold dark between them that three suns couldn t light The space between worlds describes the darkness Cara travels through and hopes to survive It s worth it though because she knows what waits on the other side She is an amazing character who says that asking for things is like drinking glass shards.Many thanks to the publisher for providing me a copy of this amazing novel Can t wait to see what else this author has up her sleeve

    4.5 starsIf you love sci fi and dystopian novels then set a reminder for 04 August because you are going to want to get this book The story has a distinct Mad Max flavour to it, and I had to force myself to not finish it in one day.This is a world where multiverse travel is common knowledge A total of 382 parallel earths have been documented but traversing between worlds is a little like playing Russian roulette, every time you travel could be the one that kills you If you land on an earth wh 4.5 starsIf you love sci fi and dystopian novels then set a reminder for 04 August because you are going to want to get this book The story has a distinct Mad Max flavour to it, and I had to force myself to not finish it in one day.This is a world where multiverse travel is common knowledge A total of 382 parallel earths have been documented but traversing between worlds is a little like playing Russian roulette, every time you travel could be the one that kills you If you land on an earth where you are still alive the universe turns you inside out, leaving a bloody heap where you used to be.So, who then would make the ideal traveler Those people who normally do not have a high life expectancy, the grunts, the poor, the ones too small to hide from the runners, the ones who have drug addicted mothers that forget to feed their children.Enter our protagonist, Cara who is one of the most prized traversers as she has died in all worlds but 8 I loved her character as she was perfectly flawed and complex Even the secondary characters like Ester, Nik Nik and Dell were fascinating.There is a lotnuance than what is the norm for this genre The pace is fast, and you need to keep up as the story will not wait for you to catchup A highly satisfying read I can recommend without reservation.I cannot wait to readfrom this author.Netgalley ARC Expected Publish Date 04 August 2020

    I thought was crazy cool and really well written and I loved the concept young people traveling to alternative versions of Earth and bringing back data that can help save our own planet from disease, natural disasters, etc and the book explores some really interesting and relevant themes specifically race, poverty and sexuality There are at least 5 6 awesome twists that I did not see coming, and it s definitely one of the better sci fi books i ve read recently

    Umm I m really disappointed.The bones were amazing but the conflict was half baked and I felt like the villain was severely under developed The world building was messy and was very hard to follow The multiverse had only a few rules and they were really all thrown to the wind The lack of description made it really hard to understand what the world looked like Because of this I constantly felt lost.Cara was actually quite likeable but I wasn t convinced that she knew what she wanted, and be Umm I m really disappointed.The bones were amazing but the conflict was half baked and I felt like the villain was severely under developed The world building was messy and was very hard to follow The multiverse had only a few rules and they were really all thrown to the wind The lack of description made it really hard to understand what the world looked like Because of this I constantly felt lost.Cara was actually quite likeable but I wasn t convinced that she knew what she wanted, and because of this her character arc felt a bit disconnected from the plot.The story was character driven which I did like The multiverses were almost identical and it didn t feel as immersive as the multiple universes of Recursion by Blake Crouch This book felt like an unedited first draft to me, it wasn t clear whether the author knew where the story was going or not The narrator s voice also sounded very young when she was actually an adult It did feel a bit immature.What annoyed me was that the style was abrupt, at times there would be paragraphs where author useddescriptive language and I began to feel engaged with the environment a bitBut then all of a sudden the voice changed and it became feeling robotic with little to no description at all.The characters had so much potential, and I was so looking forward to reading it Everything fell very flat around the middle and then picked up again at the end and felt rushed all of a sudden The ending was so anticlimactic to top it all off.I will give a listen to the audiobook once the book is published to see what edits might have changed between now and its release, but I m really upset because I had such high hopes for this one
