Review of a witch

Have you ever read a book, gotten to the last page and wondered what it was all about? Well, for me this was one of those books!

The Planets all Shone is an extremely strange book, in a sci-fi way strange.

Imagine getting into a rental car and not realising that the soda in the car isn’t yours and then swallowing a mouthful of it. Then imagine that the liquid, which was revolting, made you physically sick, and then whilst you are sick, you are approached by a man demanding the drink back, and muttering something about you having drank a rebooted code for his boyfriend Jay. Still with me?

What happens next will shock you! You wake up and find that you are now sharing your body with another person, not just any other person, but someone of the opposite sex who can talk and have conversations through you.

Well Dana Elson is just that person. Now if it were me I would be freaking out, getting angry, upset, and my emotions would be running on high alert. Not Dana though. She seemed to take the news that she was sharing a body with someone else quite well. Yes, Jay did annoy her, but I just couldn’t fathom out how someone would be so calm in that situation, especially when this person’s boyfriend, Adam, won’t leave her alone.

The book mainly focuses on the three people. Adam I just couldn’t warm to, he was a bit to arrogant. Jay was funny and I often forgot that he was sharing a body with Dana. Dana was hit and miss. One minute I was warming to her, the next she was getting on my nerves.

I just couldn’t get my head around the weird plot though. It may have been down to the book only being 44 pages long, and that the author has tried to cram a lot into the story. The book did peak my interest at times, especially the comical moments in it. The story is also exceptionally fast, and you will get through it in no time.

If you like unusual sci-fi stories than you will love this quick read. Unfortunately it wasn’t really my cup of tea, but it did give me a giggle.
