My Review of Something to Tell You:
David Edwards has delivered a spectacularly bizarre tale in Something to Tell You. This is my first foray into speculative fiction, and Edwards has given me the perfect vehicle for my first ride.
The idea of good versus evil concerning scientific breakthroughs is something that I never considered. Add to that the talking plant life. I will admit that I was thoroughly confused throughout the entire novel.
However, I still enjoyed the book for the style as well as the opportunity to visit a new genre. The story is fresh and vibrant. I felt as if I were in Bert’s gardens as he stooped to pick the dead heads off the plants.
The characters were real, and the dialogue was fantastic. The Swiss backdrop was also a favorite. Though, I was appalled by the government forces. There was too much realism there, and it was a bit scary.
I award Something to Tell You 4 out of 5 stars for the genius writing and great story. I urge anyone who is looking to branch out in their genre desires to read this book.
