THE EDDY is a supernatural mystery in real life theories. The author Eli Just is a former history teacher who studies physics. He writes about whether there may be alternate universes. He says that we no longer take for granted the world as we see it and other universes may exist. I so agree. The world today is not like it was ten or twenty years ago. Mr. Just’s novel is a scenario of anything is possible, with that wonderful mystery and suspense thrown in.
The Eddy opens with Linda. She is a NYC shop owner, mother of a teenager, and she is struggling with being divorced. She is asked out to lunch by a total stranger and she ends up in a little restaurant, The Eddy. Her lunch date leaves her there. She feels as though she has been in the diner for weeks. What gets me is she just took off with this stranger. That's trouble waiting to happen. She runs into Paul, a college flame from years ago and they realize they have both been at The Eddy. Maybe there have been others. Who knows?
Mr. Just writes that The Eddy is like water eddies. A little world moving on its own. Isn't that so true. Life goes on no matter what. I found it interesting that Paul thought The Eddy would give him the key. What key? What to? The ending was absolutely surprising. Although this is a fictional fantasy read, it has some lessons to be learned. It could happen, couldn't it?
Pick up a copy and follow Paul and Linda. Who knows you may end up at The Eddy.
I give this book 4 STARS.
I received this complimentary copy of THE EDDY by Eli Just from Night Owl Reviews for my review.
Meet Linda and Paul, two people who have not seen each other since their crazy days way back in college in California, where they did all kinds of wild things. Linda is divorced, with a teenage daughter and a shop she owns in New York City, while Paul doesn't really say much about himself. Linda gets caught up in a space-time continuum anomaly, and ends up following a strange woman to a place called the Eddy. She meets Paul when she manages to escape the Eddy, and finds that he has been there as well. As a physicist, Paul is fascinated by the whole thing, while Linda wants nothing to do with it. Their destinies become irrevocably intertwined, and off they go on an inter-dimensional, supernatural adventure with a very surprising, unexpected end.
