Something to Tell You


Something to Tell You follows the two families of Bert Leinster and his best friend Sam Murray, as the earth comes under bombardment by a Higgs Boson particle storm. The Central Control of the World council insists that survival depends on living underground, protected by The Envelope. As CCOW persuades humankind to hide in the Deeps, Bert cannot challenge CCOW nor comprehend why people cannot see the truth behind the lies.

Everything changes when he meets Her. Lily, a plant who becomes his enemy in the battle to save humankind, to save you... although 99.9% of you is empty space. Do you deserve saving?

That's Books

At first, I liked the story telling style. It wasn't all science fiction, it was family, science, nature and I dunno, human thinking. Then came the concept, the way that the higgs boson particle glues us all together as we are 99.9% empty space. That was clever and the thought we were just all positive and negative bits. But then as I fell into the story, I was pulled along by these forces of nature into questioning what I thought was good and evil, black and white, light and dark, god and the devil right and wrong. That was the underlying theme that was really clever because if I hadn't got it then this exploration of humankind by Edwards would not have worked. But I got it big time and it changed my thinking about me, who and what I am. Clever and a good pace building to a speculative ending. Maybe a sequel I think.
