King the law before his journey even really enjoyed the Pennsylvania Omnibus On A Number Of a number of The is written and I was continually left bamboozled as Bunker skilfully revealed each plot twist especially in the opening third of the book There are twists and turns galore and even when you think you have a grip of what is going on Bunker is happy to pull the rug from under your feet once againHowever the thing I liked most about the book was the culture cash of viewing a futuristic world through the eyes of somebody who has lived in a culture virtually unchanged in centuries This juxtaposition of a world view based in the earth and a simple life meeting the challenges of a hi tech virtual world is fascinating and gives the novel uniue flavourThere are occasions where the book is let own by its original episodic structure with cliffhangers at the end of a chapter only to be uickly resolved on the next page but overall this is an excellent book and one I highly recommend Amish Sci Fi A New Take on an Old Genre minor spoilersMichael Bunker s Pennsylvania Omnibus is simultaneously familiar and new The familiar a futuristic government establishment at odds with the liberties of its constituency breeds a Fight The Man rebellion The new at the heart of the story and the rebellion is an Amish community conflicted within itself This sect mirrors the larger society in the story as it grapples with an essential uestion how much of who I am need I give up to coexist peacefully in a society that I am at times at odds withBunker s characters are engaging and sympathetic Jed the protagonist is the fish out of water in New Pennsylvania Activism and the American Novel dumped in the middle of the rebellion when really all he expected too was step off a transport and start farming a new land The author s escriptions of that new land like his characters are vivid and grounded in the familiar but spiced with a uniue mystery eg landmarks on the landscape that keep the reader guessing as to where Jed has really ended up Jed s kept guessing too Character archetypes their motivations the conflict the tech familiar but by no means stale in Bunker s handsIt s against that comfortable background that the author paints his real image the fresh perspective on these events from an Amish community and hero in the middle of the conflict And remember this is set in the future mixing that Amish viewpoint with a futuristic plot is in itself innovative and fun to read To avoid spoilers I won t mention the heart of the characters conflict but suffice it to say that the Amish way is both uestioned and reaffirmed via the plot I love fiction that examines these grey areas and oesn t present black and white easy to come by answers to moral uestions That s what engages me personally as a reader and while Bunker has clear affection for Amish cultural values he s not above putting them to the test in his storyIf all this sounds a bit weird that s because it is if by weird you mean uncommon and A Love No Less Two Centuries of African American Love Letters different It s that new take on an old. Nity Space pioneering isn't as easy as it sounds when you're plain Jedidiah and his new friend Dawn arrive on New Pennsylvania in the middle of a rebel uprising and TRACE the resistance group that is rising up against TRANS.
