Science fiction, fantasy, action and adventure author Seth Tomlinson introduces us to his debut book, “The Adventures of John the Pecan: A Tale of Three parts”:
Charlie Duffer has always been one for adventure. Or so he says. But living in the year 2112, where nobody likes to just sit and talk to each other anymore, Charlie hardly gets an opportunity to test this bold claim he makes about himself. However, after stumbling upon an unexpected new friend in his lonely Idaho town, strange turns of events force Charlie to reevaluate what is and what isn’t reality, both for the outside world and his inner self. Meanwhile, others who hide in the shadows just down the road start to wrestle with their own demons, having to come to grips with the past while keeping up with the unfolding of a local mystery that’s been hidden for a while.
If things on our planet aren’t always what they seem, the same can surely be said about the universe itself. And Charlie and his friends find themselves right in the middle of the confusion, fighting off a corrupt government leader with plans that reach towards eternity on one side, and a darkness created by the sins of the common people that threatens to destroy everything that one of their dear friends loves on the other side. As they make many friends along the way, the fight to figure out the answer to the chaos is not an easy one. And the answer is not what anybody expects.
This story is a somewhat intricate plot with multiple threads. Trust me, hang in there and you will be rewarded with a nice surprise.
This story is also fun; a few kids who become friends and find more friends along the way wind up facing a large conspiracy that threatens the world and other worlds.
I don't want to say any more for fear of spoiling the story.
The author’s writing voice is quite interesting, it is homey and comfortable. I am certain I would enjoy sitting on the porch and discussing books and the world.
It's a good story, I laughed in many places.
You will enjoy it also.
