Ms. Never is a science fiction novel written about Ms. Never. Farya lives in a city that is depressed. She is the daughter of a famous astronaut and falls in love with Bryan, a divorced telecom CEO. His job is not all that it seems, and as they begin to get to know each other, they share secrets that could cost their lives.


Farya also possesses certain powers. If she lets her mind wander, reality then diminishes as if they never happened. I particularly enjoyed this part of the story. At times th

Colin Dodds’ Ms. Never is a big-picture novel, which encompasses the nature of reality, the universe, and life after death. It’s also a commentary on our times and a morality lesson. Farya Navurian is a young woman with a peculiar gift/curse: she can cause whole segments of reality to disappear. She doesn’t want to and she is horrified when it happens, especially when it happens on a large scale, something she calls a seizure. A part of a city may disappear, including the people in it. No one se ...more

MY THOUGHTS:

I received this book in exchange for my honest review.

This is a self-published science fiction book. I enjoyed reading the premise so welcome the author’s sending me a copy of the book to read and review.

Complex wouldn’t begin to explain this book. There are many plots, some sub-plots hidden within plots and many sub sub-plots… The bottom line is that there are two characters to focus on, Bryan and Farya. However, what happens in the many sub-plots affects the outcome of the goals of

As someone who doesn't often read science fiction, I don't know if I am the best person to review this. I liked the premise of it, but found it was a bit convoluted in execution (a lot of subplots). I also enjoyed the main character and depiction of mental health.

Thanks to Goodreads for a copy of this book. All opinions are mine.

I was overjoyed when I was presented with the opportunity to review Ms. Never. I am a woman struggling with Major Depressive Disorder, Quiet Borderline Personality Disorder, and Complex PTSD, so I am always looking for novels that accurately portray mental illness in a unique way. Ms. Never surpassed my expectations in this way. The novel's protagonist, Farya Navurian, suffers from depression, but instead of being presented as a damsel in distress, she ends up having superpowers as a byproduct o ...more

Farya and Bryan are the 2 main characters. Their story keeps running in parallel until they meet. There are other characters like Lourdes, who helped Farya mental exercises and Ethan. They are pivotal characters in building the stories. But beyond them, other characters who stress the storyline. The author has given a decent amount of introduction and depth to Farya and Bryan’s character. When it comes Farya’s character author has given intricate details. That was important given Farya has a uni ...more

Astonishing and bold are the two words that first come to mind.

I don't want to sound hyperbolic, but the vision and the ideas in this book are almost beyond anything I have ever read. I think the closest comparison would be to Margaret Atwood, or maybe Neil Stephenson.

Well written, gripping, and funny.

I hope he gets a movie deal out of this!

I received this book for free in a Goodreads drawing.

Honestly, while I liked the book well enough, I felt there was too much going on, with too many different people and I started to get bored with all of the sub plots. It started to feel like it was dragging on and never going to end by 60% of the way through. I love the concept, and I love Farya's "condition" and I think I would have loved it more if more of the book focused on just that. There was a lot of other stuff that I felt myself skimm

I received this book in a Goodreads Giveaway. I love the premise and was excited to read this story. Unfortunately, it was too convoluted and confusing for me. I may just not be in the right headspace to appreciate it now, but I found myself reading and re-reading entire passages to try and keep track of what was going on and that made it feel more like work. I am obviously in the minority here, but I gave it over 30% and just wasn't enjoying it at all.

I eventually enjoyed this book but almost gave up. Initially it feels very disconnected and the purpose of tidbits & characters is unclear. That's not to say there shouldn't be mystery or unknowns as a story unfolds but here it lasted a tad too long or was a bit too disjointed. ...more
