4.0 out of 5 stars A Missing Jar of Cosmic Building Material, 8 Sept. 2011
This review is from: Finders Keepers (Paperback)
Finders Keepers is a humorous science fiction about god and backpacking in Europe. Not so much about god as about the people he has working for him creating the universe. Donald and Danielle steal some time from making the Milky Way to make love on the newly created earth. Unfortunately they lose a jar of cosmic building material too.

This Jar is the focal point for the two storylines that follow. One continues with Eternity and the stressful and oh so human lives people lives there with their cocktail parties and work issues. The other follows a cast of humans and downcast Eternians on Earth and how their travels interweave each other's as an unsuspecting New Zealander finds the Jar.

A Young American, Jason Medley takes to backpacking in Europe. That part felt genuinely self experienced to the point that some parts got a bit wordy. Jason meets Theo from New Zealand and they have a sort of bromance while traveling around Europe. Yes that is the New Zealander who found the Jar.

There is a bit of love here and there which helps the story.

It is a well crafted story and the weave created by the people trying to get the Jar or finding out about it is clever and I enjoyed it most of the time.

I have a hard time beside the wordy bit in the travelogue to say anything bad about this book.

Finders Keepers serves as a fun pastime and I wouldn't mind reading more by the author.
