The possibilities are endless (just be careful what you wish for...)

1916: the Western Front, France. Private Percy Blakeney wakes up. He is lying on fresh spring grass. He can hear birdsong, and the wind in the leaves in the trees. Where has the mud, blood and blasted landscape of No man's Land gone?

2015: Madison, Wisconsin. Cop Monica Jansson has returned to the burned-out home of one Willis Linsay, a reclusive and some said mad, others dangerous, scientist. It was arson but, as is often the way, the firemen seem to have caused more damage than the fire itself. Stepping through the wreck of a house, there's no sign of any human remains but on the mantelpiece Monica finds a curious gadget - a box, containing some wiring, a three-way switch and a...potato. It is the prototype of an invention that Linsay called a 'stepper'. An invention he put up on the web for all the world to see, and use, an invention that would to change the way mankind viewed his world Earth for ever. And that's an understatement if ever there was one...

Journal Entry 3 by winglunaciawing at Sandnes, Rogaland fylke Norway on Tuesday, August 19, 2014
Picked this book at the meetup in Dublin today. The book will come with me home to Norway. I've been curious about these books for a while, and seeing this pop up at the meetup left me no choise than to grab it.

Journal Entry 4 by winglunaciawing at Grünerløkka bydel, Oslo fylke Norway on Tuesday, April 13, 2021
I seem to have forgotten to journal this, it's now in my huge pile of AVL books, that keeps on growing due to the pandemic...

I must be honest and say I was disappointed by this book. I had high hopes, and thought the concept was interesting. It had a lot of potential. Unfortunately, it did not live up to my expectations. I'm a bit on the fence on whether to read book two or not. I might, because it could change, or I might not, because the first book wasn't as good as I had hoped.
