I have always loved the idea of a parallel universe existing. :D (Especially after watching Flash series 8) ) but I am afraid I won't be interested in the book if it’s juvenile. I am okay with YA books. :| I prefer new adult books. :P Is it for teenagers? :?: Can I still enjoy the book if I am an adult? Kindly let me know. :techie-studyingbrown:

I would say this book is suitable for preteens and older. Personally, I do think adults can still enjoy this book - I did. 😊

Great book! It is an award-winning fantasy novel for teenagers that could easily attract many young people.

Heard of reincarnation and clones but never about Parallelism and mirror existence. This is out of the world, fascinating. Thanks for your review.

I have heard of reincarnation, cloning and even aliens but never about Parallel and Mirror existence. This peaks my interest. Thanks for the review.

I would like to hear a little more about the book itself in your review. I feel like you just barely hit the tip of the iceberg, and I honestly didn't get enough from it to know if I want to read the book or not. I'm glad you enjoyed it though, and I will probably check it out at some point or another.

I love easy audio books. I have a long commute to and from work and its nice to be able to listen and not have to think. Your review makes me want to download this one to "read" or should I say "hear".

I also am not a fan of audio books but you make this one interesting. I like fantasy books and paraller worlds intrigue me. Thanks for the insights.

I decided to read the ebook after I finished listening to the audiobook, and I really enjoyed it. So, I would recommend this book either way … if you don’t particularly enjoy audiobooks, the ebook is great. :)
Thanks for your feedback!

Although this is not usually my preferred genre, I must admit, this novel sounds fantastic! There are some mind-boggling ideas in the parallel world sure to maintain the level of interest. I would love to read this book and then watch it as a movie.

I am definitely interested in the premise of the novel! The concept of a mirror world and the terminology of the world sounds fascinating. I'm most certainly going to give it a read!

A fantasy that takes place in a see-through world sounds just my cup of tea! The premise of a parallel world in which reflections of people (Echoes) live sure sounds original. Add a quest to it, and I am in! That it was well-edited, fast-paced, and full of action is another plus. Thank you for the review!
