Stand back – I’m doing science! Well, I’m not, but the characters in this novel do. Virology and String Theory…I don’t really understand them, but I know of them.

Speculative fiction often requires a hefty dose of suspension of disbelief, but Fever requires too much. Time travel, and “Parallon” (which may be some parallel limbo). Reincarnation. My brain does not compute these, so the story doesn’t work for me.

Neither do the characters. Eva Koretsky has beauty, brains, musical ability, acting ability…she’s a Special Snowflake. Her ex-friend Ruby is stereotypically jealous, and possessive of Eva’s love interest. It all reads very familiar, and not in a good way.

Still, I’m interested to learn more about the science, so I’ll give the sequel, Delirium, a crack in 2013.

  1. So basically, this novel is full of scientific mumbo jumbo that’s hard to comprehend?

  2. This is one of the best books I’ve ever read! I literally can’t wait for the next one in the series! Please Dee Shulman bring it out SOOOON!!!I can’t recommend it highly enough. The plot is fast paced and unexpected.The characters are so real, i identify so much with Eva and am totally in love with Seth.I could not put this book down.
