“There are more truths contained in this story than its time travel/science fiction elements might indicate.” 

imageThis week’s featured review of The Visitor comes from reviewer Winston Smith who runs the blog Orwelliania.

Here’s what he had to say about The Visitor:

Time travellers and coup d’états. As a student of the alternative, or hidden, view of history, I am always drawn to stories that can weave those elements into an entertaining narrative. This short piece by Mr Pattison fits that bill most satisfyingly. From his little nods towards Orwell’s darkly prophetic dystopia ‘1984’, to his intriguing characters who, though only fleetingly present on the page, nevertheless appear to live and breathe. Their motives are often as blinkered and self-serving as those of the shadow men that ruthlessly orchestrated the execution of America’s last great hope on a blue-sky day in Dealey plaza in 1963.

And in that tragic event (a very real coup d’état) lies the true point of the tale. There are more truths contained in this story than its time travel / science fiction elements might indicate. I suggest that hesitant readers dive in feet first and, should you experience that itch of awakened curiosity at the back of your mind, find the time to research further and deeper into the world which ‘the powers that shouldn’t be’ don’t ever want you to notice, let alone pay attention to.
