Book Description

March 1 2011
IN THE NEAR FUTURE, humankind has mastered the arts of peace, tolerance, and acceptance. At least, that's what we claim. "You know..." she said slowly, so softly that Evvie almost didn't hear it. "You know those movies where the aliens come to Earth, and they... I dunno, they try to steal our natural resources, or create a nuclear winter so they can turn the Earth into slag, or they melt the polar ice caps and New York is under fathoms of water, or they clone us for slaves, or create terrifying bio-weapons and wipe us all out and use our cities for farmland, or... all that stuff?" Evvie's heart trembled. She could taste her pulse and her fear, thready and metallic on the back of her tongue. "Yes," she said softly. ...a "deeply satisfying debut." -Publishers Weekly Gwen looked up. "It was nothing like that."

i guess i'm really late to review this but it was a fun read. time travel, three different perspectives, fun world for the characters, again you likely won't get bored with the material if you have any imagination whatsoever and were a child of the 80s-90s.

the relationships between the principal characters may be hard for some to get used to but Frey presents it in a manner that should be easy to digest for all but the ultra puritans. (hey its just a story in an imaginary world anyhow )

i look forward to reading her next longer work, hopefully she makes it as fun and light as this one, she can tell a good tale, its a shame i don't see much more story in this particular world she created but it was fun while it lasted.

best of luck to you J.M. on your future writings

5.0 out of 5 stars Great read April 20 2011

Once I started, I simply couldn't put it down. I whipped through it and then was very sorry when it was over. Here's hoping for another from J.M. Frey very soon.

5.0 out of 5 stars ...it's even got a big red button. April 11 2011
Format:Paperback
Triptych has everything you could want from a good sci-fi story - and more. Engaging characters created with care and respect and a healthy dollop of humour; a plotline riddled with twists and turns (through the fabric of time and space, no less); and yes, strange but true in a science fiction novel, love, romance, even sex... and galactic interspecies genderflexible at that. (Did that make sense? it will). There are even chickens... but not in the sex scenes; that's kinky. And yes, there's a big red button. You'll need it. That and a good cuppa tea.

Seriously... a fine read. Compelling, thought provoking, grin inducing and yet able to reduce me to sniffles too - but I'm a sucker for a good story, and Triptych provides.
