I love to read, especially in the scifi/fantasy genre.
I was given the opportunity to read Awake by Scott Smith. I have to say, generally all Sci-Fi books tend to be all alike, and this particular book was different. It was smartly written, and a very interesting read! If you are a fan of the Scifi/Fanstasy genre, Go out and get this book! You won't regret it.
Driven by grief and insomnia, Charles Matheson struggles with his day-to-day life, until one day he discovers a portal that takes him to another world, a world almost like our own. In this world he is pursued by a government agent who has a history with Matheson -- a history both men have long forgotten. Matheson has also forgotten that he has an incredible power: the ability to move through space and time with just a thought. As he learns more about his power, he uncovers a conspiracy reaching to the highest levels of government, with his very life at risk as he tries to come to grips with a power that can change the very fabric of space itself.
