Overview

Described as "adrenaline pumping adventure" as well as "a thinker's book", this is a fast-moving and provocative story about a young man given a chance to change the world.

Isaac Ward knows that a man should obey the law, protect his country, do what's right. But when an improbable corpse leads to an impossible device, these duties collide head on - and only one can win.

Dreaming of changing the world for the better, Isaac takes the device for himself. This is his chance to do something. Be someone. But he has his work cut out for him. The world is big, stubborn, and not so easily changed - and before he can even try, he has another, far more pressing problem.

How to stay alive.

Mr. Something is a fast-moving and provocative adventure story, ranging from the towers of San Francisco to the villages of Malawi. It examines duty, significance, and one of the world's greatest issues: the one billion human beings living - and dying - in extreme poverty.

    Political Drivel

    The book started out well. It had an interesting plot and is written well enough, but it soon devolved into a miasma of liberal platitudes. The story pushes a dream of a United Nations possessing a standing army to smite the evil interests of capitalism which strive to keep the starving masses in poverty. It portrays the lumber industry as uncaring unfeeling wretches intent on denuding forests leaving devastation. It promotes the unproven pseudo-science of global warming and heaps a guilt-trip upon the reader.

    They say that a writer should write about the things he or she knows best. The author is obviously not from the United States where the book is set. U.S. Americans do not call flashlights "torches" or use the metric system like it used in the book.

    Anyway, like I said, it started well…
