I think slipstream is the most fabulous book that I have read. It's really interesting. Fantasy and sci-fi both my favorite genre is in slipstream. There is some funny names that the character have. This contain some bad words but it's just on a few pages. There is a few scene with sex but not a lot. Sorry for the ones that loves Romance in books. But there is some. Though this book is fabulous.It's a MUST-READ.
Slipstream is a mind-blowing sci-fi read from beginning to end. It's not a quick read. The details of the world that Offutt has created deserve a slow study. Most of the story takes place in the world of Avalon. This dark and seedy world is obsessed with many things but mainly a substance called Liquid Life. The main character, Jordan, and his twin sister both possess this valuable substance in a rare form called Life Green. I don't plan to recount the entire synopsis. This is a story of a quest and prophecy. There are also lots of scientific details, some sex, and lots of gore. There are many elements of this book that are amazing and freaked me out. #1. Offutt knows how to write horror well. The spiders and the monster in the tunnel were reminiscent of a scene in Starship Troopers that haunts me to this day. #2. The methods of extracting Liquid Life from victims are very creative and terrifying. #3. I love the killsuit (body armor with weapons) details.
