“TRANSITION is a book that makes you think, one that makes you look at the world around you in a different light, and it’s also a properly thrilling read. If only more contemporary fiction was like it.” — The Independent

    The first two installments are quite good. It seems a bit much to space out the installments of the book over twelve weeks, though, and rather insulting to the work to blithely cut it from thirteen hours to just six.

    The blurb from The Independent contains a suppurating solecism: “If only more contemporary fiction was like it.” Such an illiterate recommendation is unworth repeating. As Lewis Carroll noted: “`Contrariwise,’ continued Tweedledee, `if it was so, it might be; and if it were so, it would be; but as it isn’t, it ain’t. That’s logic.'”
