Resonance by Chris Dolley - a review

Guest Author - Laura Lehman

Graham Smith is odd. He counts his steps, and depending on the day, needs to end on an odd or even number. He performs the same ritual every time he locks or unlocks his house and he leaves notes for himself in his pockets. Everything has a routine; one that he is convinced helps keep the fabric of the world together. You see, several times he has experienced an unraveling where reality changes, sometime in slight ways like someone who was once married is now unmarried, but also in big ways. He has experienced his own fatherís death several times. He learned at young age not to speak about these changes because no one else seemed to notice them.

His actions in life are very ordered, even if the world around him is unpredictable. Then he meets Annalise. She tells him someone is watching him, and worse yet, someone wants him dead. After her appearance, Grahamís world changes more frequently. Even Annalise changes, sometimes she has orange hair, sometime brown, but she always knows who Graham is and why she is looking for him. Graham learns Annalise can communicate with the other versions of herself, the versions he meets when he 'flips' to another reality. With the help of the Annalises, he learns a company named ParaDim can help him understand why this happens to him, but they also may be the people who want him dead.

The real strength in Resonance is the characters. I was immediately drawn in by Graham's quirkiness and later, by Annalise's straightforwardness. It is also interesting to see Graham's reaction to her invading his neatly ordered life. This is not to say that the plot wasn't exciting or interesting; it was both. Each chapter raised enough questions to keep me interested and eager to read on.

My Recommendation
Resonance by Chris Dolley is engaging read with interesting characters and intelligent action. His writing style is easy to read and draws you into a world where multiple dimensions exist. This novel is among my most recommended!

Resonance is available at Amazon.com
