Phoenix 2125 by Alexander H.

 

This is a story of a changed world, of the works of man in conflict with the works of nature. Of humans who have become more than human, and humans that have become less. It is the story of Tom, an Arizona native who left as a child after an earthquake severed California from the mainland, and created an ocean view in central Arizona. Now an adult, Tom returns to Phoenix, to find that past is even closer at hand then he thought.

Editor’s First Impression

By Linda Schoales, editor

Nov 24, 2010: The first chapter is well-written as it gradually introduces the main character, his backstory, his new life and the scenery. Nothing much happens, just a ride in a cable car, but I’m curious about this likeable young man, his past and his future.

Amazingly Detailed

By cassandrastryffe, member

Feb 18, 2011: I started this story today, and caught up with the last entry today as well. Several hours of my life were rather enjoyably sucked away by Mr Hollins’ subtle and clever storytelling.
The first chapter opens up with Tom, the main character returning to the city of his childhood for a new job. Not a whole lot happens in that first entry, but so much information is given during a simple cable car ride that you’ll be sucked into a rich world full of color and flavor right away. The wonderful scenes and glimpses into Tom’s thoughts were highly descriptive without sounding like so much exposition. The story just gets better from there as Tom spends his first week getting used to his new surroundings. Phoenix is now ocean-front property after an earthquake dropped California and most of the west coast into the sea. The setting is original, intriguing and downright entertaining. There’s mystery and sex, relationships and history in this city of the future. A must read for the new year. Have Fun folks!
