The Reviewer Says:
With the grammatical errors in the above text looked over, the summary blurb on the website and on the back of book looked like it could possibly, just possibly, be a non-clichéd story. Unfortunately, this book rebelled against me. The words conspired to make it as difficult as possible to get past page 2 (real page 6).

New-lines in the middle of sentences are not a good idea - especially when the sentence is the heading of a Power Point presentation in CAPITALS. After the flow stopped, my hopes for the book were reduced slightly, but no worries, I must persevere, the grammatical error is probably a one off.

Page 3 (real page 7). I nearly weeped, I really did. The narrator mentions Isaac Asimov, which was fine; a recognisable scientist/physicist. But then Stephan Hawking is mentioned, followed closely on the hells by Lockness Monster.

There are other grammatical errors, physicist as PHYSISCIST (headline in a newspaper this time).

Another problem was that the lead character kept doing presentations and kept saying how wonderful the universe was, but didn’t say why. He just kept gushing.

And then I closed the book on page 3.

If a story is to be based on physics and the wonders of the universe and include real people or places, they should at least be spelled right. There’s no excuse for not using a spell checker.

I’ll review any book (whether vanity or not) as long as it interests me, doesn’t age me more than one second per second as I’m reading it and has been edited out of a first draft.

Mystery Of Everyman’s Way is one to miss in its current incarnation.
