Review: A Match Made in Heaven
A Match Made in Heaven by Randy Attwood
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Book Info: Genre: Sci-fi Reading Level: Adult
Disclosure: This is the only available book by Randy Attwood I haven’t read yet; I’m hosting a giveaway on my blog next week (April 16, 2012) and am getting book reviews posted or re-posted so people are aware of his titles.
Synopsis: The Mormons have left the Earth to populate the planet Moroni, finding their destiny among the stars and themselves.
My Thoughts: I have never met a Randy Attwood book that I haven’t loved; he has a real talent for bringing his characters to life and creating an environment that is realistic and detailed without going overboard. This is the first science-fiction story he has published, so I was quite interested to see how he did in this story environment. And it was... brilliant!
This is a short story, maybe it could be considered a novella – it took me about an hour to read it through. I am not sure where, exactly, Randy came up with some of the ideas he used in this story (I’ll have to ask), but I found the ideas presented evocative and thought-provoking. There are questions of consciousness, how to truly access God (in whatever form that power takes for you), the humane treatment of others, etc. Like all of his books, I highly recommend this terrific story from Randy Attwood.
