This story breaks the science fiction mold, and takes you to a place you've never been before. If you read a lot of sci-fi, like I do, then this book is what you've been waiting for!
It's hard to know what to say without risking giving something away in the story. But most sci-fi books spend a lot of time building, then climax, and then try to tie up a bunch of loose ends in the end. Not The Accelerators! This story just grabs you in the first few pages--you can instantly feel that you're reading something different, something new, something unlike any other book you've read. And the story goes full-throttle all the way to the last page! You won't want to set it down!
It is really two stories, separated by thousands and thousands of years. But the stories intertwine and grow together until they become the same story. I don't want to say much more than that, for fear of giving something away. Let me just say this, though--this will be your favorite book! It has already made the rounds at my work, and it's all we talk about anymore!
If you read very much, then you've already realized that the really good, truly original stories are few and far between. This is one that you can just keep reading over and over, because it will be a long time before another one comes along that is this good! If it goes to movie, I'll be there every weekend, and then buy the video! If it goes to television, I'll be sitting there watching every episode! But, and this would be even better, I hope that the author considers doing at least one sequel!
I just can't say enough about this book! If I had to come up with one thing that could have been done better, it would be that I thought the picture on the cover was a little strange--I eventually understood its significance, but it took a while. Other than that, this is the perfect book, perfectly written. I wouldn't change a thing!
