"It is a wonderful piece of speculative fiction, clearly inspired by the grand masters of the genre, Asimov, Clarke and Heinlein, where each new page simultaneously takes the reader further out toward the boundaries of the universe and deeper into resolving the mystery of existence."
"A fast-paced science-fiction novel that intertwines elements of suspense, romance, while tackling some of life's biggest questions, Earth Escape: Odyssey to the Edge of the Universe by Real Laplaine is an engaging, thought-provoking read."
With nuclear war looming and population explosion depleting the Earth, a coalition of space agencies, launch the Evolution, the largest star ship ever conceived, on a 27-year trek to an exoplanet, 1400 light-years away, and hopefully, the new home to man. Jim Tale, the intrepid Captain, and his Ai companion, CASS, encounter incredible odds, events that no one could have foreseen in this epic space odyssey to save mankind before it disappears under a cloud of nuclear fall-out. Haunted by his past and compelled by an obsession to know the truth about existence, was it God or the Big Bang, Jim Tale pushes the envelope and what he finds shakes all the paradigms.
