Genre – Science Fiction/Time Travel/Action & Adventure
Pages – 200
Just finished “Trip Walk (The Tripper Series, Book One) by C.M. Halstead. I would like to say thank you to Chris for gifting me an e-copy of this book. This is my first read by C.M. Halstead, and I really was quite entertained. I don’t read a lot of books that deal with the subject of time travel, but this one will have me exploring that area of the science fiction genre more than I do. In C.M.’s bio he says “Free your mind to worlds that may or may not be reality and let your imagination be ignited…” and he sure does live up to that idea. The plot was original and fresh, the characters were interesting and well rounded. C.M. is very descriptive in his style of storytelling, which is helpful in the fantasy genre and creating unusual surroundings. There was some really funny (tongue in cheek) dialogue along with the more and in spite of the more serious situations. Some characters take things lightly while others take a more professional and serious attitude. The juxtaposition of that was most entertaining and made things more believable and easy to realize. I was “transported” from page one to page two-hundred. Fast paced, lots of action and every bit an adventure. I am looking forward to “Kangal” which is the second book in this series, and my next read thanks to C.M’s generosity in gifting me an e-copy of that books as well. I highly recommend this read for your science fiction or action/adventure yearnings. Very entertaining and original.
