Book Review – Recollection by Tom Pawlik

Recollection (7 Hours series)Recollection by Tom Pawlik
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I particularly enjoyed this instalment in the 7 Hours series. Tom Pawlik adds an extra level of mystery as we find our character Adrian Colfax waking up in the past with little to no memory of Thomas Constant or the deal he has made. This is explained because Adrian has travelled so far back, from the point of his death as an old man. Adrian begins to understand that there is something very important that he has to prevent here in the past, but he cannot remember what it is. The mysterious numbers running through his head only add to the intrigue.

Tom Pawlik explores the science fiction aspects of the series’ premise in a little more depth in this story – but still in a very accessible way. I also found this very appealing.

Running under all of this is the strong thematic question of trouble and suffering in this world. Does it have a purpose? I won’t give away too much but this aspect was handled in a thought-provoking and satisfying way.

Top points to a very mythic tale.
