Okay that was one weird read. Talk about alien technology/sci-fi to the extreme. I don’t even know how to put it into words without giving away the entire book, but here goes…
Dana ends up basically sharing a body with Jay, a body that can transform into whomever has control over it (hers or Jay’s), and all because she drank something nasty without looking at it. Giving the predicament she finds herself in Dana is actually pretty in control. Jay, is pretty sweet, and if she had to choose who she got stuck with she’d probably have chosen him over Adam. Adam is Jay’s boyfriend and ex-colleague. All he wants is to save Jay and poor Dana is just in his way. Oh yes, and they have someone else chasing after them because everyone seems to want Jay.
Their conversations are interesting and sometimes quite entertaining. Nothing like talking to the person you’re looking at while you can hear someone else inside your head.
“Don’t look, thought Dana. don’t look don’t look don’t look
She could feel the edge of Jay’s amusement. Don’t crash the car trying not to look at my hot boyfriend. Even though he’s NAAAAAKED.”
The Planets All Shone is a quirky and wildly crazy read. I think that it could have been developed a little more, but for what it is it held my attention. Although once I finished I thought to myself, what the hell did I just read. It’s not bad, just full of the weird and crazy.
