    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 the one on acid I was a third of the way in

    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 bother

    Shift is an alternate history novel written by the guy who made up Heroes the TV show and another author Together they have written a solid readable novel with a great twist on a timeless question If you could somehow stop JFK or any public figure for that matter being assassinated what would happen Many writers have written in this vain, some of the better

    This book starts out in the year 1963 Chandler Forrestal was just an innocent victim He met Naz, a nice woman who spiked his drink, only she didn t slip him a roofie Naz gave Chandler a bunch of LCD As if things aren t out of this world crazy enough when you are under the influence of mind altering drugs Chandler Suddenly, Chandler starts experiencing some me


  8. Nick Nick says:

    TV showrunner Tim Kring and his cowriter, theexperienced novelist Dale Peck, have produced an alternate history mashup of mind control, LSD, conspiracy and the Kennedy assassination that goes on a bit too long with characters that showed promise for a while, until, well, the damn thing exhausted me The authors beat the dead horse of a premise with a stick that

    Boy, was I disappointed, I had wanted to read this when I first saw it on the bookstore shelves, but it failed in a big way I really wanted to like this book, but I just couldn t, is it contradictory to say that it felt like too much was going on, but at the same time nothing actually happens I loved the TV series Heroes and I loved the concept of secret govern
