This story explores the constant rivalry between intellect and sexuality. Time, as a relative dimension, is jumbled as a technique to explore this fascinating rivalry in more realistic depth.

I enjoyed the story very much and the narration was dynamic and engaging. I liked the book nerd soldier concept and could relate to the loneliness of it. Marcopolos has a theme in his stories of main characters who are always on the outside looking in...standing on the sidelines riddled in insecurities wishing to be a part of the game. This vulnerability in his characters portrays the.struggles we all face at one time or another in experiencing our human condition. It's this honest writing that makes me root for his characters and makes them relatable. I highly recommend this story.
