This thing is horrifically written. I made it all of 10% through the book and gave up, because I don't have time in my life for this. The main character, who is supposed to be a liaison between aliens and earth talks like an ignorant teenager ("humans have always been massively violent"), the explanaitions of the multiverse are slipshod at best, and whe ...more
What if the world as we know it isn’t exactly as we’d always believed? What if we’re not the only sentient beings in the universe? What if the universe were not “only” a universe, but a “multi-verse” where many timelines occurred simultaneously?
The book’s title really says it all: this changes everything. Clara Branon is visited by the holograms of alien beings one ...more
The idea is solid and Ember manages to incorporate and write in the concept of multiple universes/timelines into the book. It seems, at first, to create a story filled with confusion, but everything is written seamlessly and is relatively easy to understand.
I recommend this ...more
Every once in a while, I feel like I have to break the rules set down for me by the Starving Reviews, LLC corporate office. So far, I have restrained myself because, well, I'm starving, darn it! I need this literary sustenance to flow and I dare not cut off my biggest supplier. Today, though, I may wind up breaking that creed, as today's long-delayed culinary snack can't be dissected without some SPOILERS!
This Changes Everything is, on the surface, a science fiction ...more
This is one of those strange books that was, on the one hand, difficult to read, but on the other, fascinating. The basic premise is that a school teacher deeply involved in Buddhism (and who accidentally views parallel and potential realities) gets visited by representatives from the MWC, a vast community of intelligent species. She is chosen as their chief liaison to the human race since, given the state of the Earth, they doubt Earth can survive ...more
Dr Clara Ackerman Branon, a middle aged Ph.D. school teacher, narrates the book (in most parts). She gets contacted by aliens from the MWC = Many World Collective. Led, Mick, Ringo and Janis - Diana (as Clara names them *geddi ...more
I won't put a note because I was unable to finish the book. I believe (but I am not sure) that my english wasn't good enough to understand everything. I think that the writing didn't helped me neither but I can't say for sure.
Clara, kind of a psychic, have a lots of hallucinations (in the dark) and ears voices. One night, the voices won't shut and the reason is simple: This is not a ghost this time, but E.T visiting her. She is to become the CC (Chief Communicator) of Earth with them (because th
Where I stopped reading: location 418 of 2632 in my eBooks app
Why I stopped reading: It was too much.
There were too many characters, too many acronyms, too many tenses. Too much of me wondered which reality was true – the one where “Clara” writes a fictional account of her alien encounters, the one where “Clara” writes a true account of her experiences, or the one where Ms. Ember struggles so much to find the truth that we, as readers, are left to question her own sanity. I’ll say t ...more
This book is not a light read. The reader must pay close attention to what is taking place to keep up with the story. The reader h ...more

First, I received a copy of this book exchange for an honest review. I really did enjoy this book I thought it was intriguing, brilliant and it held my interest from page 1 until the last word. I love reading about Clara Branon, who was visited by aliens one night, and wow it got very exciting. I truly believe in aliens and other worlds so this book was a book I would have read anyways. The details that Sally put int ...more
Some of it is first person, other parts from accounts - a very unusual mix and yet it works.
An interesting and thought provoking read for those who enjoy something different.
Far too many very long holier than thou lectures ... over and over again. The dialogue doesn't ring true in any way, in fact at first I wondered if it was translated (poorly) from another language. I could go on but life is too short.
