“The reader is forced to grapple with his place in the story, a story that is still unfolding now.”

imageI continue my weekly featured reader review of The Visitor with a review from Amazon customer, Chad.

There’s a reason why time travel is a sci-fi staple. Who hasn’t dreamt of what might have been, of what could be, if I had only known then what I know now?

It’s a cliché, yet in the case of “The Visitor” it’s also a truism that big things come in small packages. Rapidly paced and tightly told, the astonishing economy of words marshaled by Pattison tantalizingly pulls aside the veil and at once both opens our minds to the big questions, and refuses to offer simplistic solutions, or sermonizing platitudes.

The reader is forced to grapple with his place in the story, a story that is still unfolding now. Do yourself a favor and spend thirty minutes reading “The Visitor” – and think.
