    Posted at Heradas ?The totality of human endeavor is nothing when set against the stars.? Sometimes the best way to experience a novel is going in completely blind. I found The Gone World at my local library bookshop and had no idea what I was getting myself into, in the best...

    Okay, so I finished this last night but had to gather my thoughts before writing this review. Because the book is one of those that you can talk about for hours with others - both while reading it (discussing theories, puzzling about where the author will take this) and after finishing...

    In a word: Whoa! Edge-of-your-seat crime fiction that bends both time and mind. Think True Detective meets 12 Monkeys. Throw in the end of the world and you can begin to imagine where this gut-twisting tale will take you. This is cross-genre fiction at its best. ...

    I honestly didn't expect this novel to be quite as hard-hitting as it turned out to be. From the opening passages, I was plunged into a nightmare future world of nanotech and some humanity-ending Cthulhu-esq horrorshow of humans hanging from trees, undying hoards of men and women ru...

    If there is one book that I feel inadequate to review, it's The Gone World, because it's so mind-blowing fascinating and sometimes a bit too much for my little brain to take it, but at least I think I grasped most of what was going on in the book. Still, it's hard to review that left y...

    This will probably end up being my favorite read of the year. Right from the beginning I could tell I was going to like it. There are certain movies, for me ones like Reservoir Dogs, Boogie Nights, Memento, and Donnie Darko, where I knew before they even ended that they were going to b...

    Time travel, multiverse, murder mystery and horror weaved in a story about the end of humanity. Even if the subject sounds like a well worn one, it isn?t. TS created an original world, time travel is seen in a new light and the ouroboros cycle is masterfully used as a base theme. ...

    I wanted to read this because of the story that Neill Blomkamp is adapting it into a film, as well as the fact that Sweterlitsch has served as co-writer on a number of Blomkamp?s Oats Studios projects. I mention this first because The Gone World, being pretty high-concept sci-fi, is ...

    The Gone World is a breathtaking journey of literary imagination. Beautifully written, deeply layered, and most importantly mind-boggling. It?s a procedural detective story about a NCIS investigator Shannon Moss looking into a brutal bloody murder of a family in a house where her bes...

    Deep Space. Deep time. In the future there isn't much in the universe outside of the reach of humanity.....even time. Shannon Moss is part of a secret branch of the NCIS that travels in time, investigating possible futures and the Terminus....an event in the future that might cause the...

    ?Merrily, merrily, life is but a dream.? I often struggle to emotionally connect with characters if they are placed in an over worn plot in a common genre. This book transcends genre and I have never read anything remotely similar to this - despite the fact that I?ve read 140 ...

    At some indeterminate point in Earth's future, two suns will appear in the sky. One of them is a white hole which will cause the Terminus, at which point all human life on Earth will cease (or at least cease to be relevant). Special Agent Shannon Moss is with the Naval Criminal Investi...

    3.5* Moss works for a special division of NCIS. She has this weird ability to jump about time, to solve a murder mystery. At the back of her mind is the thought of the world ending. This end of the world concept is called The Terminus. When she returns back from the future she realise...

    WTF? I have no idea what went on in this book - and I am willing to consider that it's a bit over my head but really... there is murder mystery wrapped in a time-travel paradox wrapped in a pending apocalypse all a jumble. I kept reading hoping for it to make some sense but alas I e...

    The Gone World is a unique blend of science fiction and crime thriller unlike anything I've ever read. I loved this book. It was complicated, mind-blowing, fascinating and just so damn fun. Not to mention a little scary, but in the best way. This book is heavy on the science and physic...

    This review can also be found here! DNF at 67% The biggest thing I didn?t like about this book was that I found it odd and confusing. I got this from Nocturnal Reader?s Box and when I read the description, I didn?t quite understand it. I thought I would understand it more w...

    I kept reading, waiting for it to get better (hoping!)... and then it was over. Dang. This book had some interesting concepts - the time/space travel, the freaky particles. But there were just too many flaws: ~How did she never run into herself? ~It was just too implausible tha...

    There's one thing that can be said of The Gone World that is hard to come by these days with popular scifi - is that this is a unique story. I imagine, sometimes, that parts of my brain are dedicated to retaining my enjoyment for certain things. The Gone World made the parts of my brai...

    This is another well-written sort-of SF novel that I have mixed feelings about. The downside is near-constant violence, graphic gore, mass murder, mass suicide, mixed mass murder and suicide?. Oh, and the end of the world as we know it. I?m not a horror fan, and there?s enough go...

    Disclaimer: I received a copy of this book from Edelweiss for review consideration. The Gone World was hard to write up a review for. On one hand, it was absolutely breathtaking in it?s scope and imagination. On the other, I never had the desire to read the book for more than fift...

    A science fiction mind blowing novel that challenges your beliefs in reincarnation, in the devil, in the idea of time warps, crucifixions, and the end of humanity (Terminus). When the Mursult family is sacrificed; special agent Shannon Moss is brought in to handle it all. Going again...

    I actually enjoyed reading a good chunk of this book, but it got to a certain point where a) there was a violence of a particular type that makes me very squeamish, which made me check out a bit after that and b) it got so confusing and convoluted that it just wasn't very much fun to r...

    This is another well-written sort-of SF novel that I have mixed feelings about. The downside is near-constant violence, graphic gore, mass murder, mass suicide, mixed mass murder and suicide?. Oh, and the end of the world as we know it. I?m not a horror fan, and there?s enough go...

    In a word: Whoa! Edge-of-your-seat crime fiction that bends both time and mind. Think True Detective meets 12 Monkeys. Throw in the end of the world and you can begin to imagine where this gut-twisting tale will take you. This is cross-genre fiction at its best. ...

    I honestly didn't expect this novel to be quite as hard-hitting as it turned out to be. From the opening passages, I was plunged into a nightmare future world of nanotech and some humanity-ending Cthulhu-esq horrorshow of humans hanging from trees, undying hoards of men and women ru...

    If there is one book that I feel inadequate to review, it's The Gone World, because it's so mind-blowing fascinating and sometimes a bit too much for my little brain to take it, but at least I think I grasped most of what was going on in the book. Still, it's hard to review that left y...

    This will probably end up being my favorite read of the year. Right from the beginning I could tell I was going to like it. There are certain movies, for me ones like Reservoir Dogs, Boogie Nights, Memento, and Donnie Darko, where I knew before they even ended that they were going to b...

    Time travel, multiverse, murder mystery and horror weaved in a story about the end of humanity. Even if the subject sounds like a well worn one, it isn?t. TS created an original world, time travel is seen in a new light and the ouroboros cycle is masterfully used as a base theme. ...

    I wanted to read this because of the story that Neill Blomkamp is adapting it into a film, as well as the fact that Sweterlitsch has served as co-writer on a number of Blomkamp?s Oats Studios projects. I mention this first because The Gone World, being pretty high-concept sci-fi, is ...

    3.5-4 stars I struggled reading this book and am struggling writing the review. I loved the concept of the story but didn?t totally love the execution. I am always intrigued with time travel, and I felt that the portion of the book dealing with that was fabulous. Sweterlitsch clea...

    I actually enjoyed reading a good chunk of this book, but it got to a certain point where a) there was a violence of a particular type that makes me very squeamish, which made me check out a bit after that and b) it got so confusing and convoluted that it just wasn't very much fun to r...

    Okay, so I finished this last night but had to gather my thoughts before writing this review. Because the book is one of those that you can talk about for hours with others - both while reading it (discussing theories, puzzling about where the author will take this) and after finishing...

    In a word: Whoa! Edge-of-your-seat crime fiction that bends both time and mind. Think True Detective meets 12 Monkeys. Throw in the end of the world and you can begin to imagine where this gut-twisting tale will take you. This is cross-genre fiction at its best. ...

    I honestly didn't expect this novel to be quite as hard-hitting as it turned out to be. From the opening passages, I was plunged into a nightmare future world of nanotech and some humanity-ending Cthulhu-esq horrorshow of humans hanging from trees, undying hoards of men and women ru...

    If there is one book that I feel inadequate to review, it's The Gone World, because it's so mind-blowing fascinating and sometimes a bit too much for my little brain to take it, but at least I think I grasped most of what was going on in the book. Still, it's hard to review that left y...

    This will probably end up being my favorite read of the year. Right from the beginning I could tell I was going to like it. There are certain movies, for me ones like Reservoir Dogs, Boogie Nights, Memento, and Donnie Darko, where I knew before they even ended that they were going to b...

    Time travel, multiverse, murder mystery and horror weaved in a story about the end of humanity. Even if the subject sounds like a well worn one, it isn?t. TS created an original world, time travel is seen in a new light and the ouroboros cycle is masterfully used as a base theme. ...

    I wanted to read this because of the story that Neill Blomkamp is adapting it into a film, as well as the fact that Sweterlitsch has served as co-writer on a number of Blomkamp?s Oats Studios projects. I mention this first because The Gone World, being pretty high-concept sci-fi, is ...

    3.5-4 stars I struggled reading this book and am struggling writing the review. I loved the concept of the story but didn?t totally love the execution. I am always intrigued with time travel, and I felt that the portion of the book dealing with that was fabulous. Sweterlitsch clea...

    There's one thing that can be said of The Gone World that is hard to come by these days with popular scifi - is that this is a unique story. I imagine, sometimes, that parts of my brain are dedicated to retaining my enjoyment for certain things. The Gone World made the parts of my brai...

    This is another well-written sort-of SF novel that I have mixed feelings about. The downside is near-constant violence, graphic gore, mass murder, mass suicide, mixed mass murder and suicide?. Oh, and the end of the world as we know it. I?m not a horror fan, and there?s enough go...

    Disclaimer: I received a copy of this book from Edelweiss for review consideration. The Gone World was hard to write up a review for. On one hand, it was absolutely breathtaking in it?s scope and imagination. On the other, I never had the desire to read the book for more than fift...

    I actually enjoyed reading a good chunk of this book, but it got to a certain point where a) there was a violence of a particular type that makes me very squeamish, which made me check out a bit after that and b) it got so confusing and convoluted that it just wasn't very much fun to r...

    3.5-4 stars I struggled reading this book and am struggling writing the review. I loved the concept of the story but didn?t totally love the execution. I am always intrigued with time travel, and I felt that the portion of the book dealing with that was fabulous. Sweterlitsch clea...

    The Gone World is a breathtaking journey of literary imagination. Beautifully written, deeply layered, and most importantly mind-boggling. It?s a procedural detective story about a NCIS investigator Shannon Moss looking into a brutal bloody murder of a family in a house where her bes...

    Deep Space. Deep time. In the future there isn't much in the universe outside of the reach of humanity.....even time. Shannon Moss is part of a secret branch of the NCIS that travels in time, investigating possible futures and the Terminus....an event in the future that might cause the...

    ?Merrily, merrily, life is but a dream.? I often struggle to emotionally connect with characters if they are placed in an over worn plot in a common genre. This book transcends genre and I have never read anything remotely similar to this - despite the fact that I?ve read 140 ...

    3.5* Moss works for a special division of NCIS. She has this weird ability to jump about time, to solve a murder mystery. At the back of her mind is the thought of the world ending. This end of the world concept is called The Terminus. When she returns back from the future she realise...

    WTF? I have no idea what went on in this book - and I am willing to consider that it's a bit over my head but really... there is murder mystery wrapped in a time-travel paradox wrapped in a pending apocalypse all a jumble. I kept reading hoping for it to make some sense but alas I e...

    The Gone World is a unique blend of science fiction and crime thriller unlike anything I've ever read. I loved this book. It was complicated, mind-blowing, fascinating and just so damn fun. Not to mention a little scary, but in the best way. This book is heavy on the science and physic...

    This review can also be found here! DNF at 67% The biggest thing I didn?t like about this book was that I found it odd and confusing. I got this from Nocturnal Reader?s Box and when I read the description, I didn?t quite understand it. I thought I would understand it more w...

    There's one thing that can be said of The Gone World that is hard to come by these days with popular scifi - is that this is a unique story. I imagine, sometimes, that parts of my brain are dedicated to retaining my enjoyment for certain things. The Gone World made the parts of my brai...

    This is another well-written sort-of SF novel that I have mixed feelings about. The downside is near-constant violence, graphic gore, mass murder, mass suicide, mixed mass murder and suicide?. Oh, and the end of the world as we know it. I?m not a horror fan, and there?s enough go...

    Disclaimer: I received a copy of this book from Edelweiss for review consideration. The Gone World was hard to write up a review for. On one hand, it was absolutely breathtaking in it?s scope and imagination. On the other, I never had the desire to read the book for more than fift...

    In a word: Whoa! Edge-of-your-seat crime fiction that bends both time and mind. Think True Detective meets 12 Monkeys. Throw in the end of the world and you can begin to imagine where this gut-twisting tale will take you. This is cross-genre fiction at its best. ...

    I honestly didn't expect this novel to be quite as hard-hitting as it turned out to be. From the opening passages, I was plunged into a nightmare future world of nanotech and some humanity-ending Cthulhu-esq horrorshow of humans hanging from trees, undying hoards of men and women ru...

    If there is one book that I feel inadequate to review, it's The Gone World, because it's so mind-blowing fascinating and sometimes a bit too much for my little brain to take it, but at least I think I grasped most of what was going on in the book. Still, it's hard to review that left y...
