What would you do if you could see into the future? Marvin Peters was a simple man, with friends, dreams, aspirations and emotions, but all that changed when he found an electronic device that carried a recording of future events, a blueprint of things to come. But for Marvin, this device was more of a blueprint of burdens, worries and life-changing events. Blueprint by author David K. Brown is a science-fiction novel about human emotions and relationships and how they are affected by out-of-this world circumstances. The existence of such a special device will change Marvin’s life forever, will influence his relations with the ones he loves, and will open his eyes to a new world, a world of selfless acts and hope. Can Marvin deal with this burden? And more importantly, can he find the good in his situation?

The story of Marvin, or Coffee, as his close friends call him, is a story of human emotions, interactions and friendships, all under the influence of a science-fiction device that carries more responsibilities than one would think. David K. Brown’s novel makes for a good reading experience for all readers, science-fiction fans or not; the story is well-developed, the characters, descriptions and plot twists are interesting, the reader is never bored or uninterested in the events.

Blueprint is a novel that successfully blends science-fiction with romance and adventure, while offering us an exciting and unique journey into the world of Marvin and his loved ones. Whether you see the main character as a hero or as a tormented soul looking for his way in a much too complicated life, you will never lose interest in what happens next and the fitting ending.
