Good but not great. May be great for younger readers.

This was a great book. I really liked the Jumper series so I though I would give this a try and ended up loving it.

I read this after reading Jumper. I was a little disappointed because it was more talk and less action. But I would still give it a B-. Definitely worth the read if you are a Steven Gould fan. A note: This book has too much sexuality for young teens IMO!

I've read this book while in my first year in high scool back in 1999. it was really interesting. I wanted to tell people about the book but some people just don't like to read. But hey i'm typing to share other books to people so they wont miss out on any other good books to. I cant put all the books i recommend on the included title list so if u want a book recommend to u. Just E-mail me. Trust me i read alot of books.

Wildside is a pretty fun and energetic speculative novel about an alternate Earth connected to our own, a world in which humans did not evolve and mammoths and saber-tooth tigers still roam. The plot of the novel focuses on teenager Charlie Newell and his four friends, who discover and operate a gate from our world to the alternate Earth.

I enjoyed this novel. As with Jumper, Gould manages to bring original insight and energy to a classic SF trope. The characterization is at times a bit forced and crude, but overall this is an engaging, fun novel.
