Amazon.com: 4.5 out of 5 stars 10 reviews
4.0 out of 5 stars very good science fiction - worth the read. 14 Dec. 2013
By CS - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I enjoy science fiction that tells a good, well paced story, while making me interested in how the characters are going to act. This book did both and I enjoyed it very much. I'd certainly recommend it to other science fiction readers. It doesn't begin with a bang, which kept it on my shelf for a couple of months while I read other books. But once I got into the story (it begins to pick up the pace after Simon leaves the hospital), I couldn't put it down. I bought Simon of Space after reading Felix and the Frontier, through the Amazon Prime lending library, and I'm glad I did.
4.0 out of 5 stars It opens slowly, but is well worth the time. 5 Jan. 2013
By William F. Leffert - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I really enjoyed this book, but I didn't realize I was enjoying it until I was about 40% into it. The amnesia storyline grates on me, no matter what the media, but I'm glad I stuck it out. Once you hit that one spot, everything really comes together into an interesting story that you won't want to put down. His writing style is exceptionally clever, which is how I made it through the rather slow beginning.

I would recommend reading Felix and the Frontier first; its a short read, and when all the connections come into play with Simon of Space, you'll appreciate the links the author uses in his books.
4.0 out of 5 stars a long meandering read, but a good one 20 Mar. 2014
By Michael Drips - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
A roller coaster of a book with the writing varying from high to low.
Too many characters? Maybe.
Too much dialogue at the end? Definitely.
Did you fell empathy for the characters or were you merely an observer? An observer.

That is the book's trouble; an interesting story, but not well crafted enough for you to want a sequel.

5.0 out of 5 stars How many people get to have a "do over" in life? 22 May 2012
By Dixie - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
The author has a very fertile imagination that continues to pop worlds fully-formed from his head, like Athena from the head of Zeus. The descriptions paint pictures that are as vivid as they are interesting. Delightful characters appear and reappear as Simon travels in search of himself--developing a new improved self along the way.

4.0 out of 5 stars Surprisingly complex, imaginative, and deep 1 May 2012
By William J. Wilson - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I've got to admit... I wasn't digging this at first. The combination of a slightly dark and humorous tone with the hoary old "man with amnesia" device was turning me off. I was starting to lose interest... But then some surprising things started to happen. And then some interesting things, followed up by some deep and then sad things, which then led to more surprises.

Many interesting and well-developed characters are encountered along the way, strange and wonderful worlds and cultures are introduced, and a tremendous back-story is revealed. The story continues to get more and more complex, but somehow always in a manageable fashion. Revelations start to occur more frequently, sometimes jaw-droppingly major, but always as a logical step to the next part of the story. The conclusion is simultaneously deep, humorous, sad, and enlightening.

This is excellent science fiction that manages to instill (and maintain!) a sense of wonder up to the very end. I look forward to reading more of Mr. Brown's work.
