The Experiencers – Val Tobin

Although this is not the normal type of genre I would read, I was excited to dig into this book and see what it had in store. Some may consider it Sci-Fi, some consider it truth, and some just may not like it very much at all. I enjoy science fiction movies, as well as documentaries about government, history, and all things unknown or hard to explain. The paranormal, the mystical; it’s all right here.

The thing I enjoyed most about this story was that it wasn’t crowded. You know; when you meet 16 characters (and their back-story) in the first two chapters of a book. Then you spend the next 18 chapters trying to sort out who’s-who. I have been reading too many of those stories as of late, so it was nice to read a story where by chapter 5, I still knew who everyone in the story was.

And something else. I suddenly had a vested interest in these individuals, and their families. I needed to know what they were going to do next. I cheered them on (or scowled at the ones I didn’t want to succeed!). It was important that they accomplish what they set out to do. This is a story where I would continue to wonder what happened to Mick, and Carolyn, and Sam, and even Arnie. I had to finish it, because I had to know what happened. You don’t walk away from this type of story. You become part of it, feeling the emotions you are reading about, as you are reading about them.

You hold your breath, you get angry, you laugh out loud.

I am for the most part not one to spoil a story, so I again try to keep too much information to myself, so I do not ruin it for anyone else. But if you do indeed like science fiction; if you have an interest in aliens, spiritual beings, or government cover-ups, you will want to read The Experiencers. Are you all about family, and friends, romance, and doing what is right, no matter what? Then this is a story for you as well. It is not overly graphic (expect some blood and gore), or overly sexual, and the writing has you seeing and feeling what you would expect the characters to be seeing, and feeling.

I will definitely be reading the next book to this series, and I am sure you will want to as well!
