    1. I read Thumb because I won a giveaway for Ragged Claws , which is the following book to Thumb in the series The Book of the Colossus Fantasy mixed with science fiction is not what I usually choose for reading Normally I read hard science fiction, especulative science fiction or space opera , and sometimes I venture myself with books that are a little out of these parameters The authors I like the most are Asimov, Clarke and Pohl Thumb has nothing to do with it It is completely different from any [...]

    2. Thumb is like nothing I ve read before, and I absolutely loved it If this is steampunk, I m a convert, but if you are already a fan, don t expect steam powered horses and musketeers taking potshots at airships The atmosphere is like the original Star Trek series, complete with polystyrene scenery and murky colour, but instead of being set in a studio, the playground is an immense dull orange wasteland littered with waste building materials, stretching thousands and thousands of miles, punctuate [...]

    3. I must admit that after a friend recommended me this book, I wasn t that thrilled to start reading it.The first few sentences of the blurb made me think of a sci fi fantasy book with only metaphors about how we humans need our gods when there s no other way to save ourselves Not that I have something against religious fiction, but I just wasn t in the mood for it I was happy when I realized that I was wrong and that the book wasn t like that but as soon as I heaved a sigh of relief, I was left c [...]

    4. I was provided an ebook version of Thumb in exchange for a fair and honest review.I ve never been one to judge a book by it s cover, which I think is a good thing because there a many covers that don t turn me on Like Thumb s cover It is a representation of a scene in the book, but it doesn t draw me in or make me want to read it I was intrigued by the blurb though, so I thought I would give it a go In the beginning I started to wonder what I d gotten myself into I started to think the book was [...]

    5. If God did not exist, mankind would have to invent him Literally, in the case of the remarkable book Thumb, by John Guy Collick.It is the far, far, far future So far into the future that the universe is dying Stars are burning out and hope is dead, buried and forgotten.An essentially unchanged mankind, basic humanform bodyshape still intact with a recognizably human consciousness, will meet the heat death of the universe They are resigned to it.Until the discovery of a white hole of sorts that l [...]

    6. Firefly meets the end of the Universe, with just the slightest hint of Jason Bourne A well written page turner with each chapter building to a crescendo that makes you want to continue reading.

    7. I honestly gave up on this book I never do that, but I just couldn t get a handle on the story or the main characters Perhaps it just isn t the book for me.
