gave it a chance I liked the premise of this book taking a series of historical events and adding a sci fi twist to them and for the most part I really enjoyed the writing style I would have liked to have seenof Chandler and the development of his LSD induced powers and less of Melchior and agent Query but I m assuming that their parts will be important for the rest of the trilogy and that is why so much time was devoted to them Because the narrative switches points of view in each chapter it takes a while to get into the story and invested in the characters but about a third of the way through I was sufficiently sucked in I m definitely going to continue reading this series I love the premise for this story Set in the 1960s, the plot revolves around LSD and mind control experiments, along the lines of MK Ultra experiments done by the CIA The writing is great, as far as the author s phrasing and technique However, for me, the story is all over the place At times, I felt like I was

high gearSet in the sixties, Shift is a novel that aims for the sky but at some point it gets lost somewhere else We don t really know where Written as the beginning of a trilogy that, as far as I m concerned, hasn t been continued, the book introduces a pretty good idea, plot and characters however, as the story goes on, it begins to erode itself Is it worth reading I guess Does it leave you withquestions than answers Definitely, and not in a good way.This thriller was written by Tim Kring creator of the Heroes tv series and Dale Peck back in 2010 and it fell into my hands in a local book fair some time ago It s about mind control experiments that the CIA used to run back in the sixties, LSD, Cuba, conspiracies, the Mafia, the JFK assassination You can see why the premise is awesome, at least for someone like me Who doesn t like a political thriller mixed with secret agents, drugs and conspiracies Oh, come on On the bright side, besides the whole idea of the story, I think the characters and their respective backgrounds are pretty solid It feels like you really get to know each one throughout the chapters and that is something that doesn t happen often Also, I m not a very big fan of long descriptions, but Kring or Peck manages to achieve both a dynamic and simple style of doing it that you end up really hooked For example, the mind control or the LSD trips Another good thing would be towards the end, when he perfectly combines parts of the story with real JFK killing theories It makes you go watch that fatal motorcade video over and over again That same thing happened to me, in a whole other level, after reading 11 22 63, by Stephen King that one is a must.On the other hand, I must say that, though the plot is great, the way the authors manage to develop it is not that good It s all over the place at times, constantly mixing jawdropping passages with bad ones Moreover, I think that the extension of the book plus the quantity of characters help bringing down the rythm Yes, they are excellent characters, but there are so many And all of that builds a confusion you can t easily escape from Further, there are intriguing questions that are presented to the reader almost at the beginning and at the end you realize there is no answer to those That really pissed me off I mean, I get that it is the first part of a series but, man, I read almost 500 pages, I want answers.All in all, Shift leaves much to be desired The perception is that, somehow, the novel has so much potential but doesn t really live up to the expectations it builds In a nutshell, it never really gets into high gear My rating for the book 2 stars Regular Did LSD kill JFK That tagline drew me to yet another JFK conspiracy related novel The premise is intriguing it lends another level, scientific experimentation and mysticism, to the different conspiracies that abound Mafia, FBI, CIA, Cuba, and of course Oswald and Ruby But it doesn t do it well enough to draw me back to complete the trilogy and that bothers me I don t like leaving something incomplete but this book was a chore The entire story felt too disjointed It does finally come tog Did LSD kill JFK That tagline drew me to yet another JFK conspiracy related novel The premise is intriguing it lends another level, scientific experimentation and mysticism, to the different conspiracies that abound Mafia, FBI, CIA, Cuba, and of course Oswald and Ruby But it doesn t do it well enough to draw me back to complete the trilogy and that bothers me I don t like leaving something incomplete but this book was a chore The entire story felt too disjointed It does finally come together but only after 2 3 or 3 4 of the book There, you finally discover how any of the book has to do with JFK and those other entities previously mentioned Further, it seemed too fantastical to me I m not sure why it didn t resonate, why I didn t like it After all,Stephen King s 11 23 63 was long and winding but oh so beautiful, engaging, tense, and mystical, King s trademark Maybe, here, I wanted a sense of realism Maybe books 2 and 3 go about resolving it all and making the experimentation work as a storyso maybe one day I ll give them a shotbut until thenI d recommend 11 23 63 in lieu of this But, if you like LSD experimentation that turns individuals into telepaths and mind readers, and you are a JFK assassination conspiracy theory enthusiast, then maybe give the trilogy a chance P.S Out of it all, I did like this passage They re going to say that what happened today changed things Don t you believe them The shift happened a long time ago, and it s a log bigger than you or meYou should read that book the director gave you or Fahrenheit 451, or 1984, or, hell, The Manchurian Candidate, the very novel that inspired Project Orpheus The sci fi guys have always known good and evil aren t mutually exclusive, let alone capitalism and communism That two opposing forces come to lookandlike each other the longer they fight Up till now it s been fiction But after this it ll be truth The thing is, though, the truth will have turned into lies, because everything will be about subjectivity, everything will be about distrust of authority It ll be chaos masquerading as reason until someone or something comes along with the authority to lull people into believing that some truths really are incontrovertible God, maybe, or country, or who knows, maybe just selfishness as opposed to self inspection and self improvement But no matter how it plays out, it translates into big profit for anyone willing to exploit people s fears Twenty years in intelligence and I never really got thatNot till I met you someone idealistic enough to actually believe everything his government told him, even though it resulted in hiw own persecution p316 317
