Adam's Rings by Matthew D. White is a spellbinding science fiction story with surreal characteristics that will remind the reader of some of their wildest dreams. The story is about Adam, a young, curious and intelligent high school freshman raised in a rural area of the United States. He is a good student with a big fascination for space travel. He wants one day to travel to the stars, explore the universe and make a name as an astronaut — little does he know that his entire life has been a lie. In fact, he has been grown in a machine at a research station in space, an experiment designed for a powerful mission. An accident awakens him to the reality of who he really is, and he discovers his memories are fake and that only a handful of people know about his existence. He wakes up in a space station orbiting Saturn and must leave the module immediately. What follows is full of suspense and entertainment, but it is nothing anyone could see coming.
I just discovered this author and he surprised me in many ways. Matthew D. White’s novel can make someone who doesn’t love science fiction develop a love for it. The story starts with a powerful premise and a predicament that becomes a crisis for the young protagonist. The reader immediately develops an attachment for the young man because his loneliness is aching and his confusion so strong. The prose is simple and exquisitely beautiful. The vividness in description allows readers clear and beautiful images of the setting, plunging them into the mindscapes of the characters, and the clear and focused capturing of scenes sets this novel apart. Adam's Rings is filled with unusual twists and the plot points are designed to keep the reader moving from one gripping page to the next. This is a page-turner well worth five stars.
