Review: The Eye With Which The Universe Beholds Itself

The Eye With Which The Universe Beholds ItselfThe Eye With Which The Universe Beholds Itself by Ian Sales
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

This is definitely one of those stories that’s more about the journey than the destination. I was wondering the entire time what the point of the story was going to be. It literally took place en route somewhere and in flashbacks. Overall an OK story with a heck of a twist at the end. Felt very pulp science fiction. It appears the four short stories (of which this is the second) don’t have anything in common other than the first story introduced the idea of alternate timelines and so each is in a different NASA timeline. (Which actually reminds me somewhat of Hickman’s The Manhattan Projects, Vol. 1: Science. Bad.)

So read or listen if you’re a journey type of reader, but if you’re the destination type this might not be your bag.
