The Afterlife of Alice Watkins: Book One: A Time Travel Mystery Kindle Edition
|New from||Used from|
★★★★★ "A bizarre journey of weird science that delighted and vexed on every page. Author Matilda Scotney weaves a fascinating tapestry of strange occurrences. The elements of space and time are well placed amongst the author's vivid descriptive techniques, bringing the Saturn Station to life in full glory. I also especially enjoyed the development of such quirky lead characters who aren't afraid to ask bold questions about the nature of time, life and death. The plot twists suddenly, keeping readers interested, and there's certainly plenty more to come from this revelatory work of fiction.
Overall, I'd definitely recommend The Afterlife of Alice Watkins to weird science fiction fans everywhere". K.C. Finn for Readers Favourite.--This text refers to the paperback edition.

Such a fascinating premise is opened up and dissected with skill by Matilda Scotney, who has created a brilliant utopian future for the world.
My only criticism (if it can be called that) may be that it all seemed too perfect, and that I was waiting for something to go wrong...
Looking very much forward to reading the second book in this series. Plenty of questions to be answered and mysteries still to be solved.
An excellent debut novel that will leave you thinking.
An interesting take on an afterlife that had me skimming the universe and keen to turn the next page to discover more about Alice and her amazing journey.

I couldn't believe how much writing space was taken up by teaching a chef how to make a hamburger and how unsuccessful it was. Mind you, this was a bit more exciting than the long winded description of how she obtained materials and taught a bunch of world leaders how to do crochet.
Every person she came across was nonthreatening and "quite nice". There was one person who seemed rather cold and unfriendly, but he turned out to be "quite nice" in the end. And there was this young man who was trying to chat her up who was "very nice". But she got the biggest shock of the whole book....... she got a glimpse of his naked bottom!!!!!!!
As you have probably guessed, I didn't bother with the next book in the series.
I did however, expect more insight in to the connection between Alice and her revived from stasis other self in this first book.
I think my dislike of book/story sets though will probably mean I'll never find out out how Alice fared in the future world, but I enjoyed my introduction to her.
Still glad I read it just wished it was a lot more gritty.
