Going into outer space calls to Astronaut Brooke Jones like the sirens of old, and when the chance to be part of the first manned mission to Mars arises, she is ecstatic.
But little does she know the fate that awaits her on the surface of the red planet or the results of her encounter when she gets back to Earth.
Thanks to the worldwide success of shows like The Big Bang Theory and Star Trek, being interested in science is now universally cool. It is with some embarrassment that I am forced to admit that because of said shows I was able to understand several different scientific terms such as microscopic black holes and Higgs Boson that are illustrated in ‘The Infinite Within’.
Without such interest in sci-fi television I probably would have needed a dictionary to understand half of what is going on in this book.
However, all science terminology aside, what really kept me turning the pages in this book were the characters. Brooke Jones is a female astronaut whose dream to be in space is constantly thwarted by her male colleagues.
If you are easily offended by egotistical males that are consumed with their desire for money and expensive scotch than I’d suggest you read something else. If not, you will be as entertained and as desperate as I was for the bad guys to have karma bitch slap them into the 21st century.
Without giving too much of the plot away, it is safe to state that the action and excitement for scientific discovery will keep you glued to the pages. Michael Drakich demonstrates his strength as a writer by producing a kaleidoscope of characters that all have their own flaws and strengths.
I was equally as entertained as I was shocked by some of the statements that left assorted characters mouths.
I gave The Infinite Within an intergalactic 4 out of 5.
