5.0 out of 5 stars "Whatever the mind can believe..." - 4½ stars 1 Oct. 2012
By J. Chambers - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Jack Stonewell lived more for his futuristic dreams than he did for the present. With a turbulent home life and not quite fitting in at school, you couldn't blame him for dreaming about another world, a happier place for him. When he unexpectedly has the opportunity to actually enter the world created in his dreams, he makes a fateful decision that will dramatically change his life.

With the length of a short story, "The Rise of Planet Rubicon - Part One" serves as an introduction to a series about Jack's creation, the planet named Rubicon. As it turns out, Rubicon isn't exactly the idyllic place that it should have been. There are those on Rubicon who oppose their creator, and this episode sets the stage for conflict in the subsequent books in the series.

Based on the writing style and content, I think the primary audience for the Planet Rubicon series consists of pre-teens through middle-teens. It's a nice introduction to science fiction for younger readers. The story's concept was reminiscent of Planet of the Dreamers, a 1950s sci-fi classic that I read years ago as a teenager.

With "The Rise of Planet Rubicon - Part One," The Rubicon series is off to a very promising start.
4.0 out of 5 stars Sci Fi Meets Positive thinking 16 Oct. 2012
By Amy Baker - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I thought this was an interesting story as it combines the best of sci fi with the positive thinking movement that has gained prominence recently. I don't read much sci fi but I was a fan of the movie 'The Secret' which says that we become what we think about it. I thought it was really interesting the way the author combined the two into a story. The final frontier is not just outer space, but also in the mind.

If you like sci fi, fantasy, positive thinking etc then you should enjoy reading this series.
5.0 out of 5 stars Science Fiction Saga 6 Aug. 2013
By Carlos Novela - Published on Amazon.com

I love this science fiction saga. Character seem to walk off the page. Well, we all dream of what the future can bring us. Still, I wish the story had more hard nose science. After all, is not a fantasy, but this is minor. I am glad that I bought this book and do rec. Keep on writing more science fiction sagas.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Book That Helps Us Understand that We Create the World We Live In 6 Aug. 2012
By Jeff White - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I just finished reading the book and can honestly say it spurred my thoughts as no other book of that size. It is one of those books you read in one sitting. Yet, its message is strong enough to echo inside you for a lifetime. Being a fan of Napoleon's best seller "Think and Grow Rich", Dasrim's first-in-a-series book came as a reminder of the proven principle:

"Whatever the mind can believe it can achieve"

This is the first book I read on Kindle. The text is laid out in a way that makes it very easy to read. The author clearly has the ability to keep you reading his book from beginning to end non-stop. The first chapter sets the stage. In the second chapter suspense kicks in.

The story is about Jack, a teenager who lives in a dysfunctional Missouri family. Jack loves chemistry and astronomy. His is fascinated looking at photos of planets, stars and galaxies. He wants to major in Aerospace Engineering and even work for NASA in some capacity. Yet, the environment he lives in is not encouraging at all.

His parents constantly fight. A father who gets out of control after a few drinks, a mother who just feels obligated to deal with her son, and a sister who, when not being cruel, just tolerates him, describe the place Jack is growing.

While he has good grades at school, his family situation attracts jokes, stares, and feelings of pity from his peers. Often, he gets bullied.

Feeling that he is neither accepted nor loved, he often visits his imaginary world--planet Rubicon--a place where things are as he would like them to be. In this world people focus on their passions, never get bullied or laughed upon, and everyone's opinion is valued.

This imaginary world has the potential to manifest itself into Jack's life. Whether this world becomes a reality or not depends on Jack's
* absolute clarity of purpose
* belief in the attainment of his desire
* decision to take the necessary action

Planet Rubicon and its city "Reversia" is a place where each of us builds a world of dreams and desires. Manifesting this world is not an easy task. Yet, it's attainable. Using the author words: "Reversia is a city that needs plenty of work." Everyone's dream place needs a lot of work. It is the type of work that takes place in your mind.

Henry Ford said, "Thinking is the hardest thing there is". Interestingly, people have the tendency to let negative thoughts occupy their mind. Negative thoughts come with no effort which is why people tend to elaborate on the things they don't want. And guess what? They get exactly what they don't want.

The author expresses this truth through the words of Alara, Jacks girlfriend who lives in his imaginary world. She encourages him to be bold in his thinking, and re-build city Reversia while at the same time she disapproves the fact he has let other thoughts replace his noble desires:

"You don't get it, do you? The main city was taken over by the Others...I don't know who you let inside your head, but they ran wild here."

What thoughts do you cultivate inside your head? These will rule over your life. Through his book Dasrim Hasik reminds us of the power of the mind. The mind is the driving force to the realization of our dreams. What world do you want to live in 5 years from now? You need to first create this world in your mind. You need to desire it. And you need to visit it again and again and feel as if it has already manifested itself.

I am closing my review quoting the two main characters from the last chapter of the book:

"Is it normal for things to happen with only a thought?", Jack asked his. Alara nodded "Whatever the mind can believe..."

I am eagerly waiting for Dasrim to release part 2.

5.0 out of 5 stars Psychology and Sci-Fi Meet in a Fun, Engaging Read 7 Aug. 2012
By SCL - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I love sci-fi, and I love philosophy. I found that "Rise of Planet Rubicon" to be a nice blend between both worlds -- and even surprising.

You see, the philosophy and mind power side of "Rubicon" is something that is truly the star of the show here. You have Jack Stonewell, this teenager from a broken, dysfunctional home where he clearly doesn't fit right. He keeps his mind always thinking of something better. The idea of "be careful what you wish for" is a strong theme, but the way it's presented is unlike anything else in sci-fi. I'm a huge Ray Bradbury and Phillip K. Dick fan, so I felt those influences as I read this. You may see that too.

I'm not going to give away Part One, but it's definitely a nice introduction to an obvious series -- the universe is being set up here, with enough suspense that I will be waiting patiently for Part 2 to come out. Five stars for the short, fast paced read, as well as the setup for something even better as the series progresses.
