There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
Sci-fi story with a good mix of comedy a fast moving futuristic storyline that keeps you some what interested, though the storyline seemed a bit jumpy and sometimes with too many characters to take in, which does make the storyline slightly confusing.
A satisfying mix of sci-fi, humour, romance and action, with a healthy dollop of backpacker existentialism thrown in.
I found it slightly hard going in places as there were lots of characters and a fair amount of jumping back and forth in space and time, but most characters were well-developed and loose ends were tied up satisfactorily at the end. Colchamiro writes pretty well and knows how to tell a story, and I think this novel might have been even better if he'd kept things simple and perhaps dropped some of the characters and subplots. Interested to see where the series goes next, though!
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.
