Dennis Pennefather Hi Devan.......Glad you enjoyed your copy. Even as the author, I re-read it about once a year, and get something extra out of it each time.
Hi Devan.......Glad you enjoyed your copy. Even as the author, I re-read it about once a year, and get something extra out of it each time.
Objectively, it is a good sci-fi adventure, but there are also philosophies behind the tale which tell us something more about emotions, and nuances of thought which lie within the family genetic line.... Don't force it, but if it is meant to be, I could see you as an author one day. Grandad Dennis(less)

Even those who don't often read scifi will be intriqued by The Understanding. The alternative philosophy presented is extremely interesting in itself and well weaved into a fastpaced story that doesn't let the reader put it down. Deserves to be read with an open mind!

Pennefather’s story of Adam, a clone in the Earith dimension, is an intriguing read that, in the end, makes you ponder the human condition in regards to the sanctity of human life, religion, and politics.

Very happy with this book... A lot of good alternative cosmology...
The cosmology flows naturally through the storyline, in a way that does not detract from the drama and the action... flows, rather than being forced on the reader.
This is fiction which may well convince the reader that the cosmology is fact.
Has humanity been husbanded by humans from an adjacent dimension, since the earliest of times?
After 'The Understanding' my answer to that could be 'Yes!'
Not short on action,romance,technology.
