    1 thought on “The Device”

    1. As much as I hate to denigrate a written work (anytime you can complete a book, self published or not, you've done something), I feel compelled to comment on the books failure on many levels.The first problem is the way the book was written, it shouldn't be classified as science fiction. The object and premise of the story, the "device," is taken away at nearly the beginning of the book, and doesn't return until nearly the end. The whole book then becomes mostly a human interest and character de [...]

    2. I very much enjoyed this book. The characters were interesting and had depth. The plot was terrific with several twists and turns. I found myself turning the pages and remained completely oblivious to the time. I found myself even shedding a few tears. I could see where the story line in the book could really pan out into a real life situation in our not too distant future which is a very scary thought. Take a trip down a winding road with John Timmons and see if you would have made the same cho [...]

    3. What a great surprise this book was!I loved everything about it. The characters all had a depth that is seldom found in books that are story's told in the first person.The pace of the book kept me involved while the complexity of the plot drew me into the layers that surrounded the truth.Jack Finney comes to mind as an author with similar skills.I will be looking forward to Patrick Skelton's next work.

    4. --from Red Adept Reviews--I received The Device, by Patrick Skelton, as a review copy submitted to “Red Adept Reviews” by the author.Description from author’s website:A mysterious device. A physicist with advanced medical knowledge. A man’s quest to uncover the secrets of his past and save the woman he loves.When John Timmons finds an unusual metal object behind his cabin in Colorado, he suspects it belongs to his new neighbor, Jacob Mowat–a retired nuclear engineer who claims to have [...]

    5. I chose this book for a sci fi book club because it was in a list of promising stories and some people gave it good ratings. I personally did not think it was good sci fi. The write-up said that a guy finds a device and his life is changed after that. Instead what I found is a guy finding a device, loses it to the government, and then meets some new people, which change his life. Somehow he gets the device back in the very end and it turns out to be the only science fiction part of the story. Th [...]

    6. The Device is the debut novel by author Patirck Skelton, a dystopian/science fiction novel that I just couldn't put down. I am usually not a big science fiction fan because all too frequently the sci fi aspects become the entire focus, overpower the characters and their humanity, as well as overwhelming the story line. I usually am left feeling like I have just read a text book rather than a fictional novel. In The Device, the science fiction aspect enhances, rather than overpowers, the incredib [...]

    7. Rating: 4 of 5 starsAuthor: Patrick SkeltonFormat: Kindle, PaperbackTormented by guilt after the death of fiancé, John Timmons lives life in a fog retreating to his mountain cabin after work comforted only by his dog Spencer. While out hiking, a reflection catches his eye and he spots a small object sitting on a log in a nearby river. After a torturous journey down a ravine, he retrieves the object. It is mostly unremarkable but is engraved with the strange phrase “Project Daf Yasfhat”. Fro [...]

    8. Definitely a good choice for a cold windy day when the chores are done and a cup of hot chocolate, a purring cat and a warm afghan combine with a couple of hours of quiet. Interesting ending and thought-provoking. I will read more by this author. Note: This book was provided free through the GoodRead's First Reads program by Patrick with an expectation of an honest review. My opinion is my own.

    9. The device by patrick Skelton left me wanting more and not in a good way. The character of John Timmons seemed a bit two sided. He could have been a little more in depth. His relationship with Lisa could have been explored a little more. I did like the infusion of science fiction and intrigue. The device is spoken of very little and left me wondering what it truely has to do with the story. All in all not a bad read but I feel it could have accomplished more.

    10. This was pretty great, I normally don't like sci-fi but the characters really drew me in, not to mention wanting to find out what the device really was. This was intriguing and addicting and I recommend it to anyone who wants to read more of a character driven science fiction story.
