In the near future, where people can ‘pop’ to any destination really fast, private investigator Cooper finds out that it’s not all pink fluffy unicorns dancing on rainbows.
It was a nice and quick read. Interesting from the very beginning, as it starts with someone disappearing while using the pop-device. It’s far from real hard science fiction, it’s just the teleportation and some androids really and it reads like a regular detective story, which I think a lot of people will enjoy.
Although I’d seen the outcome of the story coming for a long time, I actually enjoyed the story more than I thought at first. The characters, although not that original (Cooper is a widower and he has pre-existing scepticism when it comes to pop travel; Geri is the FBI-agent who has to prove herself at all costs; the Creator the genius who’s utterly ignorant in all divisions), were quite likeable (or at least it worked in this book for me).
Pop Travel is the first book in the Pop Travel series, the second book is called Simulation (Review to come tomorrow).
Thanks to the publisher for providing me with a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review!
