Publisher's Summary

Day One

No one can remember anything - who they are, family and friends, or even how to read. Reality has fragmented and Earth consists of islands of rock floating in an endless sky. Food, water, electricity - gone, except for what people can find, and they can't find much. Faller's pockets contain tantalizing clues: a photo of himself and a woman he can't remember, a toy solider with a parachute, and a mysterious map drawn in blood. With only these materials as a guide, he makes a leap of faith from the edge of the world to find the woman and set things right. He encounters other floating islands, impossible replicas of himself and others, and learns that one man hates him enough to take revenge for actions Faller can't even remember.

Stick with it. It's worth the read....

What was one of the most memorable moments of Faller?

Faller's "leap of faith" to save those he loves is a driving force in the book.

What does George Guidall bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Excellent narration with a complicated list of characters.

Any additional comments?

Because we see the world through Faller's eyes, we are at the same loss as him to piece the puzzle together and it takes a while to start to see the picture, but it is worth the work.
