Book Review: The Kennedy Effect by: Michael J. Foy

Summary: President John F. Kennedy's counterpart from an alternate reality visits Earth, his stated mission: to observe our timeline, including the assassination of our president. But then his own dark fate is revealed, and he goes on the run. Soon Kennedy finds himself in a battle to save both his universe and ours from marauders who would do anything to destroy us. To stop them, he must trust a mysterious faction from yet another reality, the Martians. This work of alternative history/speculative fiction creates a subgenre aimed at those who relish far-out concepts containing a strain of plausibility. Here's a universe and an Earth that match scientific theory and offer unique ideas within the realm of the perhaps might-be. (synopsis from book)

I have to say, as most of you who read my reviews know, I am not much of the Science-Fiction type. On that note, I try to at least give everything a good solid try. Going into this book I was a bit skeptical because...come on, JFK and alternate realities...sounded a bit crazy. Well, imagine my shock after I started to read that I was enjoying this book. The author certainly knows how to draw the reader in slowly and then hook you. I was literally pacing around as I was reading, there was so much tension. It was also, after a brief web search on my part, very historically accurate. So I truly enjoyed this book and I am very glad I gave it a chance, who knows, maybe I'll turn to the Science-Fiction side again one day. Oh, the only reason I gave it a 4 was because the type font in this book its self was a HORRIBLE choice. I got a headache after reading for a bit, I had to take breaks.
