EARTH ESCAPE, released in September 2016, although a fiction novel, which is only to say that the technological advancements depicted in this story are still on the drawing board, but not far from becoming reality, is so much more than what it appears to be. While it is classifiable as a scifi thriller, it is weaved with a contemporary thread about our current world and the geopolitical and environmental factors and threats which we face today, which will make the reader feel as if this very scenario could be happening.
It is also a philosophical thriller, because the main character, and his Ai (Artificial Intelligence) companion, in the course of their urgent mission to find a new planet to colonize as home for mankind, are also in search of the answers to existence. How was the Universe created and how did we come about – and moreover, and more importantly, who are we?
Was it the Big Bang, was it God, or maybe there is another explanation, one which defies reality to such an extent that few, if any, speak of it. Jim Tale, the captain of the star ship Evolution, wants answers. Rock-solid answers to existence. In their search, they encounter amazing and thrilling new horizons, alien races and more, and all the while the puzzle begins to unravel.
This epic space journey will not only entertain the reader but it opens up doors to fascinating and intriguing concepts which challenge the accepted theories of modern day mediocrity.
“This author has the most inventive imagination ever put into words. I am hooked on his books, as different as can be from each other, like an addict seeking a fix! Once again i will say that i do not read Sci-Fi, not into TREK or such shows….but Real Laplaine wrote EARTH ESCAPE, so of course i jumped at the chance. Others have told the plot outline so i will refrain, but i will say that he makes the futuristic quite realistic…..quite believable. And his characters, in this case, Jim Tale, are as ‘REAL’ as you and I.” Linda M.E.
“An intriguing novel set in the near future with a great deal of reverence to our current world. The story takes you on an interstellar journey searching for a new world for the human race to inhabit as ours is on the verge of destruction. The main character exudes the persona of a street smart guy with unyielding courage enabling him to persevere in mentally taxing, as well as perilous situations. Ingrained in him is also an introspective quality that keeps him searching for answers in regards to life, creation, and purpose that have existed since the beginning of time which seem to be a constant quarry throughout the universe.” Albert H.
