Enter the dark and dangerous world of space as you follow Clara, the first human to complete a hyperspace jump. Trapped in a black hole, Clara is forced to confront the memories that have defined her existence. As she struggles to survive in the face of an uncertain fate, her journey becomes a harrowing exploration of self-discovery and acceptance. Will Clara make peace with her past before it’s too late?
Singularity is nothing short of simply being a truly beautiful book. The story is an existential one that pushes on questions surrounding what drives us and the purpose of experience and memories. The thoughts and questions of our main and only character Clara are rich, vivid and engaging. Any reader would be able to connect with her at some level. In all the best ways, this tale is both reminiscent of Interstellar and at least half a dozen Phillip K. Dick short stories. It is a worthy descendant of the thought-provoking Sci-Fi literature of the 50’s and 60’s..
The art and overall feel of the book is gorgeous. According to the Amazon description, the visuals were an “innovative collaboration between human storytelling and AI-generated imagery of Midjourney, a text-to-image generator”. I know there is a tremendous amount of controversy and “feels” as it relates to AI art, but I would encourage any and all readers to give Singularity a shot.
