      this is a fun, slipstreamy what if novel that gently floats the possibility of parallel realities as four characters living in a small oregon town begin to experience visions seeing alternate versions of themselves living completely different lives, having made different choices at their crossroads of love or career lives with different partners, realities where their dearly departed are still alive and well, or most alarmingly, seeing a doppelg nger whose appearance suggests a catastrop this is [...]

      The book held my interest but I can t say I was left feeling all that satisfied by the time the story wrapped up While the explanation of why everything occurred wasn t the thing that bothered me, I had this empty feeling when I was done reading because it felt like I got nothing out of the whole purpose of the story I rarely read science fiction but I thought the premise for this one sounded like it had potential Basically four neighbors are just living their lives in Oregon when some weird The [...]

      If, Then was a unique premise in which people are having visions surrounding an unknown, upcoming town tragedy It reminds me a lot of the Mothman Prophecies, in the sense that a lot of people in a small area are having visions, such as mirror images of themselves, dead loved ones, and metallic tastes in their mouths The main characters, Mark and Ginny, are having trouble with their marriage due to work schedules Secondary characters, Samara, Cass, Leah, all have some part of their story line If, [...]
