A wonderful book, by a wonderful author, I look forward to reading more by this author in the future. If you like a though provoking read that keeps you guessing, then this one is well worth a read. :)

Who has not contemplated what's wrong with our World, our Planet Earth, and said, but not out loud, "If I had made the world, I would have done this ... or that ... and not that or this"?

In 'Migration' David York will make you say that again. And this time probably out loud.

I am not a sci-fi reader, but I liked this book and I am glad I downloaded it, and I highly recommend it.

I hope that David York will continue writing.

I thoroughly enjoyed this novella-length exploration of the ultimate Doomsday scenario: a world ravaged by pollution, erosion of the ozone layer, crop failure and pestilence. The greater part of earth's population has succumbed, when mysterious signals from the nearest bright star, Alpha Centauri, invite the remainder to migrate to an earth-like planet in that solar system.

But is this altruism on the part of an alien, very technologically superior intelligence, or is there a hidden agenda at work? I found it a gripping and fascinating read to discover the outcome for the earthly settlers.

Obviously, given the subject matter, the author is painting on a vast canvas (for example, the size of the spacecraft needed for the migration). He solves many of the logical (and logistical) problems associated with mass space travel - not to mention the question of the time needed to travel distances measured in light years - very neatly, keeping the narrative safely on the right side of the line you always get in sci-fi between reasonable plausibility and absurdity.

And at the very end there's a really clever plot twist that's the ultimate irony. Sci-fi lovers will certainly lap up this very imaginative, rather cautionary tale, I'm very confident.

I recommend it highly.

A bit short, but highly entertaining mostly for the twist at the end, which I won't spoil for others, and is the only reason am giving it 3 stars as the characters, dialog and plot is a bit wooden and at times too unbelievable. As in way too gullible, but does bring back fond memories of an old Twilight Zone episode with a similar ending, though very different.
