“This book is a warning which should be heeded.”

imageThis week’s featured reader review of The Visitor comes from Amazon reviewer, Glenn Chatfield.

I don’t normally read fiction, but I thought this was a very good story about what’s coming down the line. But no one will listen. People like J.L. Patttison, and me, and many others like us, understand what’s happening but no one wants to believe because “it won’t happen here.” Well, it’s happening, and over the past decade it has happened more quickly than anyone would have guessed. And we will move even quicker to a national internal collapse within the next decade — it if even takes that long. This book is a warning which should be heeded.

“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.

I’m typically not a fan of short fiction, however, I loved The Visitor by J.L. Pattison. My only complaint is that it wasn’t longer! The Visitor is a great story with intrigue and pacing that makes you not want to put it down.
