What would you do if you could project your body to another location? That’s the question that this book examines, from scientific background that doesn’t mask the overall story.
Since the opening is set at a funeral there is a good bet that something is going to go wrong at some point but it’s an enjoyable ride finding out exactly what happens and how. The tone starts out quite light (almost a Bertie Wooster style delivery) but as the story unfolds the tone becomes darker.
At one point there’s a reasonably heavy description of the science involved but, once it’s over, it’s not referred to again, so I didn’t need to remember it in order to follow the story.
The shifting narrator perspectives add interest as well as shielding the motives and feelings of the other participants at key moments.
It’s not a long book, but it’s the ideal length to tell its story. My only real irritation was the frequent use of GPS indoors which isn’t possible as far as I know. The book is nicely laid out as a Kindle book, and well edited without the distracting grammatical and spelling issues found in so many Kindle books.
