Did LSD kill JFK That tagline drew me to et another
Conspiracy Related Novel The related novel The is intriguing it another level scientific experimentation and mysticism to the different conspiracies that abound Mafia FBI CIA Cuba and of course Oswald and Ruby But it doesn t do it well enough to draw me back to complete the trilogy and that bothers me I don t like leaving something incomplete but this book was a chore The entire story felt too disjointed It does finally come together but only after 23 or 34 of the book There ou finally discover how any of the book has to do with JFK and those other entities previously mentioned Further it seemed too fantastical to me I m not sure why it didn t resonate why I didn t like it After allStephen King s 112363 was long and winding but oh so beautiful engaging
"Tense And Mystical King "and mystical King trademark Maybe here I wanted a sense of realism Maybe books 2 and 3 go about resolving it all and making the experimentation work as a storyso maybe one day I ll give them a shotbut until thenI d recommend 112363 in lieu of this But if ou like LSD experimentation that turns individuals into telepaths and mind readers and Bird Habitats in Britain you are a JFK assassination conspiracy theory enthusiast then maybe give the trilogy a chance PS Out of it all I did like this passageThey re going to say that what happened today changed things Don tou believe them The shift happened a long time ago and it s a log bigger than The Guitar Style of Jerry Reed you or meYou should read that book the director gaveou or Fahrenheit 451 or 1984 or hell The Manchurian Candidate the very novel that inspired Project Orpheus The sci fi guys have always known good and evil aren t mutually exclusive let alone capitalism and communism That two opposing forces come to look and like each other the longer they fight Up till now it s been fiction But after this it ll be truth The thing is though the truth will have turned into lies because everything will be about subjectivity everything will be about distrust of authority It ll be chaos masuerading as reason until someone or something comes along with the authority to lull people into believing that some truths really are incontrovertible God maybe or country or who knows maybe just selfishness as opposed to self inspection and self improvement But no matter how it plays out it translates into big profit for anyone willing to exploit people s fears Twenty الإيضاح لمتن ايساغوجي في المنطق years in intelligence and I never really got thatNot till I metou someone idealistic enough to actually believe everything his government told him even though it resulted in hiw own persecution p316 317 Shift is an alternate history novel written by the guy who made up Heroes the TV show and another author Together they have written a solid readable novel with a great twist on a timeless uestion If ou could somehow stop JFK or any public figure for that matter being assassinated what would happenMany writers have written in this vain some of the better offers including Stephen King s 112263 on how to go back in time to stop the JFK assassination and Stephen Fry s Making History on how to go back in time to kill Hitler Despite it s frankly lame title Shift is also a good attempt at alternate history Kring and Peck bring together several topics that make their novel the most believable of the group I ve read It s still uite out there that saidThe first 85% of Shift are unrelated to the JFK assassination and if the cover and this review didn t mention it then it might have been a surprise Regardless the way that the internal politics of the early sixties spy agencies play out are interesting and integral to the world that the authors are attempting to build A world of CIA FBI KGB JFK and LSD A world where one man can decide to kill another man in an attempt to bring about world war A world we almost live in every dayThere are many allusions to conspiracies within the book but given its timeframe and setting they are fairly straight forward and clean cut Like in 112263 the authors have accepted that Lee Harvey Oswald was the shooter on the day in uestion to make their novels easier to consume on a large scale That could obviously be a good or a bad thing Regardless Shift is a uick read and I got it for all of 10 so grab a copyDefinitely worth our time4 starsFor reviews go to Boy was I disappointed I had wanted to read this when I first saw it on the bookstore shelves but it failed in a big way I really wanted to like this book but I just couldn t is it contradictory to say that it felt like too much was going on but at the same time nothing actually happens I loved the TV series Heroes and I loved the concept of secret government experiments with mind altering drugs ESP and JFK assassination connections so it should be a hit with me right Wrong The story made no sense at all and the writing style really confused the plot and action as if Kring and Peck had tried too hard to be concise with their writing to give a frenetic energetic pace but in so doing they seem to have missed out coherence it was hard to see how any of the plot points actually connected Anoth.

FREE READ Shift By Tim Kring
Er thing that annoyed me was that a lot of the elements of the story were just thrown into the mix because it seemed like a cool idea at that particular moment when they were writing but it doesn t actually help or relate to the story Kring s Shift never really gets into high gearSet in the sixties Shift is a novel that aims for the sky but at some point it gets lost somewhere else We don t really know where Written as the beginning of a trilogy that as far as I m concerned hasn t been continued the book introduces
a pretty good idea plot and characters however as the story onpretty good idea and characters however as the story goes on begins to erode itself Is it worth reading I guess Does it leave ou with uestions than answers Definitely and not in a good wayThis thriller was written by Tim Kring creator of the Heroes tv series and Dale Peck back in 2010 and it fell into my hands in a local book fair some time ago *It s about mind control experiments that the CIA used to run *s about mind control experiments that the CIA used to run in the sixties LSD Cuba conspiracies the Mafia the JFK assassination You can see why the premise is awesome at least for someone like me Who doesn t like a political thriller mixed with secret agents drugs and conspiracies Oh come onOn the bright side besides the whole idea of the story I think the characters and their respective backgrounds are pretty solid It feels like ou really get to know each one throughout the chapters and that is something that doesn t happen often Also I m not a very big fan of long descriptions but Kring or Peck manages to achieve both a dynamic and simple style of doing it that Friends Forever: Everything Changes (Friends Forever) you end up really hooked For example the mind control or the LSD trips Another good thing would be towards the end when he perfectly combines parts of the story with real JFK killing theories It makesou go watch that fatal motorcade video over and over again That same thing happened to me in a whole other level after reading 112263 by Stephen King that one is a mustOn the other hand I must say that though the plot is great the way the authors manage to develop it is not that good It s all over the place at times constantly mixing jawdropping passages with bad ones Moreover I think that the extension of the book plus the uantity of characters help bringing down the rythm Yes they are excellent characters but there are so many And all of that builds a confusion The TV Writer's Workbook: A Creative Approach To Television Scripts you can t easily escape from Further there are intriguing uestions that are presented to the reader almost at the beginning and at the endou realize there is no answer to those That really pissed me off I mean I get that it is the first part of a series but man I read almost 500 pages I want answersAll in all Shift leaves much to be desired The perception is that somehow the novel has so much potential but doesn t really live up to the expectations it builds In a nutshell it never really gets into high gear My rating for the book 2 stars Regular If NV Level 3 Health and Social Care you are a Heroes fanou are sure to recognize Tim Kring as the creator of the series For some readers this knowledge will either hurt or help Writing in the Dust: After September 11 your perception of the book As for me I ve never watched the show so I went into this book without any preconceptions about Kring or DaleShift begins in theear 2012 A fiery figure appears in the sky before several witnesses Many say that the figure seemed to be searching for someone but couldn t find them The book then jumps to the 1960s when Kennedy was President Chandler Forrestal is a rather average oung man whose interests only involve such tame things as becoming a professional student He meets the sultry Naz in a bar from there Chandler is thrown into a top secret project involving LSD a project only known as Project Orpheus When he escapes Chandler is followed by a homicidal rogue agent known only as Melchior a man who is willing to do anything to get what he wants Anything But why are they doing this And how does this tie into the assassination of President KennedyDrawing on the fascinating mystery behind the Kennedy assassination as well as actual government experiments on TV showrunner Tim Kring and his cowriter the experienced novelist Dale Peck have produced an alternate history mashup of mind control LSD conspiracy and the Kennedy assassination that goes on a bit too long with characters that showed promise for a while until well the damn thing exhausted me The authors beat the dead horse of a premise with a stick that got bloody about half way through Given that we know the outcome of the story the only reason to slog through would be the compelling characters and an intriguing premise Both started well for me I liked the scion of the ruling class turned philosopher who was targeted by the CIA for the LSD experiment I liked the malevolent renegade the disillusioned FBI agent even the mysterious Asian whore runner But not enough to care when the threads of the plot got inevitably knotted into a ball just how and why the strands got straightened out Oddly Stephen King covered a lot of the same territory with some of the same problems length insistent trope obsession in his novel 112263 He s better at it than Kring Peck Pity Conseuências para a Companhia dos acontecimentos de ontem em DallasFacto

S I think this is
the first of a trilogy Oy I love the premise for this story Set infirst of a trilogy Oy I love the premise for this story Set in 1960s the plot revolves around LSD and mind control experiments along the lines of MK Ultra experiments done by the CIA The writing is great as far as the author s phrasing and techniue However for me the story is all over the place At times I felt like I was the one on acid I was a third of the way into the book before the characters even began to link together enough so that the story made sense There were too many characters jumping around in too many places I had to work to follow the plot line and that made it impossible for me to get lost in the story I received a review copy from the publisher through NetGalleycom The first pages of Shift open on my birthday two ears from now and the story reaches back from there to a time before the assassination of President John F Kennedy a time before I was born Coincidence Or is there some hidden meaning I should glean from this Shift is an ambitious novel in many ways not the least of which is an attempt to create a new story with the JFK assassination around which there are already stories than there are myths about King Arthur It s a big story spanning nearly 50 ears chronologically and incorporating many famous historical characters J Edgar Hoover Timothy Leary and of course Lee Harvey Oswald play significant parts while there are brief appearances with Ronald Reagan Jack Ruby JFK himself and even a uick mention of Saddam HusseinThe thread linking all these big players and big events is a US government experiment into the mind expanding properties of LSD and forays into the realm of psychic and parapsychic abilities The government project in Shift is known as the Gate of Orpheus or simply Orpheus and is a fictional extension of the MKULTRA program and others The difference with Orpheus is that it worked it produced geunine psychic abilities in at least one subject and possibly and that subject would go on to shape history as we know itJust trying to summarize all this makes me tiredAnother ambitious aspect of Shift is the extensive cast of characters many of whom are introduced late in the story Kring begins with Chandler Forrestal and Nazanin Haverman who uickly become pawns in a game much larger than themselves Agents Melchior and BC uerrey government agents on opposite sides of the same coin and he builds from there Nazi doctors and sleeper agents and KGB and add in the appearances of historical figures and the cast of characters is seemingly limitlessTim Kring in his first novel definitely shot for the moon with Shift As often happens with a really ambitious story unfortunately he falls short of the mark The story is SO big that it often gets out of hand and hard to follow though he does end up bringing it back in line It is wide reaching but
Lacks The Focus I Would Have Likedthe focus I would have liked a result many of the suspenseful elements come out flat and the characters aren t given enough treatment for us to care very much about them Some scenes come off as overwritten and would probably play better on the screen than they read on the pageThough the ending of the book is satisfying there are many many threads of story left unresolved Shift is the first of a planned series so one hopes that there is resolution to come for these characters left hanging in the wind but I have to say that I m not sure I care enough to keep reading when the series continuesThe ending of Shift is intriguing and well written but it takes some effort to get there The ideas are interesting and original but some get lost in the morass of prose and plot think X Files on a bad day Some of the characters have potential but falter under the staggering weight of the storyStill it does start with my birthday That can t be just a coincidence right Maybe I will give the next book a shot after all We shall see This book starts out in the ear 1963 Chandler Forrestal was just an innocent victim He met Naz a nice woman who spiked his drink only she didn t slip him a roofie Naz gave Chandler a bunch of LCD As if things aren t out of this world crazy enough when ou are under the influence of mind altering drugs Chandler Suddenly Chandler starts I picked up an advanced reading copy of this book at Comic Con after seeing a panel with Tim Kring I was initially interested because I m a fan of Heroes but I wasn t sure what to expect from his novel I m glad I gave it a chanceI liked the premise of this book taking a series of historical events and adding a sci fi twist to them and for the most part I really enjoyed the writing style I would have liked to have seen of Chandler and the development of his LSD induced powers and less of Melchior and agent uery but I m assuming that their parts will be important for the rest of the trilogy and that is why so much time was devoted to them Because the narrative switches points of view in each chapter it takes a while to get into the story and invested in the characters but about a third of the way through I was sufficiently sucked in I m definitely going to continue reading this series.
