Book Review of EARTH ESCAPE by author Victoria Ichizli-Bartels
“Gripping, surprising, and a very thoughtful story. A very memorable read.
It is obvious that the author had put all of him into this story. Although the story is fictional, it is extremely close to the current state of events and especially the nature of the conflicts around the world. We see every day how easy it is to be drawn into a narrow-minded thinking. We all want to define everything concretely and once and for all. The ever-surprising life events shake all those beliefs and definitions profoundly and this is very scary. Slipping under the duvet of judging others or other-minded people can be so comfortable. We’ve all been there and probably be drawn into such traps again and again. The clue is to remain open-minded and compassionate, both to ourselves and to others.
And exactly this was the main message I read again and again both between the lines and directly inside “Earth Escape”.
But even the best message would be nothing without strong writing and I definitely can confirm this for this book. The thorough research about the theories of where we all come originally from are cleverly woven together and with author’s imagination, and this makes the story sound very believable. What I also liked very much was the clearly visible intention behind and careful forming of every scene and every element in the book.
I highly recommend reading this book. You might find yourself chuckling at Jim Tale’s language and spicy dialogues and scenes, but you might also discover yourself looking at the world differently during and after reading this story. You might discover that you want to make a positive change in the world.”
