We all know about the Mayan calendar and the doomsday warning for 2012. We start with an archeologist on a dig and move quickly to an author writing a science fiction book and somewhere along the way the lines get blurry and we are drawn into a parallel universe and earth invasion. Sound confusing? It was a little bit. I had to keep flipping back a little to remember where I was in the layers of parallel in this book. (With due respect to the author I was trying to read the book with the Olympic Games on the television in the background, muted but on) It was not a bad story and it had characters that I enjoyed very much. But all in all, not really my cup of tea.
