Review: BEYOND THE RAINBOW’S END by James Pitter

A collection of five short stories including a light-hearted and humorous critique of celebrity culture seen through the eyes of an acerbic journalist. A sinister tale about mind uploading and the consequences for those willing to risk everything in return for eternal life. A witty exposé about infidelity and excess within a pampered expat community. An amusing road trip that turns into the journey from hell. The dark narrative of a woman who's troubled past returns to haunt her and destroys the one she loves.

My thoughts: This is a collection of short stories.

The first one didn’t impress me so much. In fact, it was a little confusing. There was so much going on, which I guess mimics the life of a fashion photo journalist.

“A Digital Immortality” begins with the obituary of a quantum theory scientist and goes on to discuss man and science.

I can sense a hint of poignant perspective by the author with a dash of frank wit; however, I wasn’t too drawn to the stories. In fact, I found them to be quite daunting.


My rating: 2.5 stars
