Book Review: Vincent by Jonathan G Meyer

Vincent by Jonathan G. Meyer coverScience fiction has been one of my favorite genres since first discovering H.G. Wells and Jules Vern in grade school. Jonathan Meyer has captured a style reminiscent of those early science fiction writers woven into the modern age. Much of what was science fiction over a century ago is now reality but there is still much futuristic technology that an imaginative author can introduce. This author has found just such technology. Though the idea of miniaturization is not new it has not been a big part of the science fiction I’ve read in my lifetime. Artificially intelligent space ships have been around for decades. Where some authors give AI a tendency toward darker purposes Meyer does not. The independent nature and directed purpose of Vincent presents the Star Ship as a personality with pure and benevolent intentions.

The earth is at risk from a device from another world.  Vincent recruits a homeless man, who in turn recruits a museum guide for a mission to save Earth. Before their mission is complete a refugee joins their team.

I really enjoyed the plot and the characters behaved in a way that may or may not be expected, depending on how you think you’d react to finding a miniaturized space ship then being taken into it. I loved the descriptions of activities of the main character while he was miniaturized. Imagine trying to scale stairs when you’re the size of a mouse.

Great read. If it were a movie it would be PG or PG-13. I could recommend it to both young and old science fiction fans. Not too technical, yet believable.  Available on Amazon Kindle Unlimited and in paperback.

Happy Reading!

About grandmapeachy

I am a retired grandmother and amateur quilter. Generally I do not discuss religion and politics with people other than my family and even then I do more listening than talking. Because I dislike confrontation this blog is a way for me to express opinions that I hold on these and other issues without having to delve into controversial discussions with others who may not agree with me. I am also an avid supporter of indie authors. There are a lot of great books that are not available through traditional publishing and I believe that these stories need to be brought to the attention of the reading public.

  1. Granda Peachy,
    Thank you for the wonderful review.
    You captured the essence of what I was trying to achieve. My attempt to create a style reminiscent of the masters I read as a teenager (a few decades ago) is becoming a reality. Reviewers like you keep me focused and headed in the right direction. Long live Sci-Fi!
    Thanks again,
    Jonathan G. Meyer
