Review of Steve LaBel’s Bernie and the Putty

22 Apr

I was first introduced to Bernie and the Putty through a book trailer. I don’t like book trailers at all because I feel like it’s supposed to be a movie, but when I watched the trailer for Bernie and the Putty, I was completely hooked and I was very interested in reading the book. It was the first time that ever happened and I was blessed to be able to receive an advanced ebook copy for review.

The story starts out with an explanation of the World and the Business and the Annual Universe Awards. We meet Bernie, who has forgotten to turn in his application for the Business. Not everyone is cut out for the Business, which is creating worlds. However, when people are interviewed about Bernie’s late application submission, it’s clear that although not the brightest or the best, Bernie is loved by at least those who know him like his lab instructor Caleb and his friend Suzie.

Bernie and the Putty is an excellent mix of fantasy and science fiction. I got lost in a good way in the explanations of how building universes were supposed to be that I started imagining the different possibilities that would make creating worlds possible. The characters are well written and very likable. The story is a very unique twist on creation myths and legends. And the antagonist to our unlikely hero is well conceived in that he doesn’t just bully Bernie for no reason. He’s holding a grudge and determined on getting Bernie fired.

I thoroughly enjoy this novel and would recommend it to everyone who loves a good fantasy. Creating universes isn’t easy and everyone should read this book and find out exactly how universes are built and the difficulties in creating them!

I give this book 5 out of 5 stars! ^_^

Bernie and the Putty is out now! Get a copy at Amazon today!

    Thank you, Xao. I really appreciate the kind words. I am working hard to make sure Bernie is available in June.
