FLUID is a gritty interactive novel that explores the nature of free will, through both the large story of a cosmic battle between good and evil, and the small story of two teenagers yearning for connection in a greedy, manipulative world.

Chastity and Austin are two kids repeatedly thrown into contact with one another. At every turn they sense an overwhelming attraction, but fate conspires to force them apart. When Austin is accidentally thrust into a new job as the receptionist for Chastity's therapist, Dr. Abramson begins to realize that they have been struggling to find each other since the dawn of time. As God and the Devil watch and plot, the clock ticks and nothing short of the end of all Creation is at stake. The rains fall, the Earth trembles, and time runs short.

Some terrific use of language and imagery really brings scenes to life. The first reading resulted in a rather quicker ending than I anticipated. It was not an ending i enjoyed. I will be re-reading it soon and make a few different choices to see where Austin and Chastity end up. Innovative storyline and well worth the wait of getting in UK Kindle.

Very clever and well written book. A modern day Choose Your Own Adventure book for adults. Looking forward to reading it again in a few months and choosing a different path.

**As of the date of this review you can only read this on Kindle E-Ink devices. That leaves out the Kindle Fire and all the Kindle Apps.

Really creative interactive read. An evolved choose your own adventure of sorts. Cool to read on the kindle as you make decisions for the characters and your decisions change the direction of the book. Want to reread a few times making different choices.

Amazing concept for an eBook. The writing is electric and is very thought-provoking, particularly in that you get to decide which ways the story goes. The narrative feels incredibly unique to you. The writer is amazing and must have written hundreds of different parallel narratives and endings to make this work. After reading it, and seeing how the story played out, I actually downloaded it again to reread it and make different choices. It's THAT good!

Such a great concept - a book ahead of it's time.

LOVE the choice points -- am going to give my mind a break and re-read it in a week with different choices! So cool!
