  • Reprinted from the Chicago Center for Literature and Photography cclapcenter Longtime followers of my creative projects know that in general I don t like publishing bad reviews that for the most part I see it as a waste of both my time and yours, in that I could be spending that time instead pointing out great artists you may have never heard of However, since one of the things this website is dedicated to is honest artistic criticism, I also feel it s important to acknowledge books that I found [...]


  • 3.5 interesting, carefully plotted and plausible stars.John Twelve Hawks is a pseudonym for a writer who writes in privacy and is off the grid His book appears to be a reflection of a fictionalized account of his world and spiritual views.From QUESTION Is there a reason for the pen name One you d be willing to share, I suppose As in, is it because you re actually a secret CIA agent and or Russian spy, or merely because you don t ever want your mother knowing what you ve written JTH My mother and [...]


  • THE TRAVELER BY JOHN TWELVE HAWKS This book actually generated quite a bit of buzz before it was released last June and I had it recommended to me by a few people saying that it was in the vein of Stephen King, and since I m a fan I would probably enjoy this I managed to get an ARC through the bookstore I used to work at and then it sat on my shelf for about six months until I picked it up and decided to start reading it last week I finished it about four days later after pretty much eating it u [...]


  • 6 26 08I m still deciding if I can finish this book Its pure summer fluff, but it is sooo bad I almost can keep reading .6 27 08I can t take it any there are so many other good books, sci fi or not, that I could be reading I just can t waste my time on this crap It s a bit of the Matrix, a bit of Highlander, with a lot of John Woo thrown in for good measure This book has every cliche known to man or rahter, known to 12 year old fan boys tossed together into one badly written mess the reluctant [...]


  • This book was not at all what I expectedbut I loved it I am not generally a big sci fi alternate reality fan but loved this read.The author raised tons of important points regarding big brother and how easily our every move can be monitored by the vast machine I am not an alarmist but it is a little scary how easily our movements could be traced through seemingly little things such as grocery store discount cards and security cameras in ATM s I loved Maya s character the female harlequin wrestli [...]


  • I read The Traveler a couple of years ago and I still think about it occasionally The whole concept of what a Traveler can do was kind of New Agey, but I thought the idea of people trying to live off the grid without anything connecting up to computers was very unique If you read the blurb, you d think this was a science fiction novel I suppose it can be argued that it is a science fiction novel However, in retrospect, I consider it to be a fantasy novel that uses a lot of modern technology It h [...]



  • What it is In the not too distant future, a vaguely dystopic America has only one chance to be saved from the peril of implanted microchips and spliced rat dog mutants the Traveler, a man capable of traveling through the fabric of alternate realities and bringing back capital T Truths to set the world free Gabriel, this generation s Traveler previous Travelers have included Jesus, Mohammed, Buddha you get the pat drift , is not so much a reluctant hero as a poseable doll Protected by his bodygua [...]


  • Probably my favorite book of the last couple of years The Traveler and its follow up are a very cool blend of techno thriller and fantasy, and they move along at an incredible pace I live a very busy life and usually can read books only in 15 page bites before I pass out at night, but these books are load up on Pepsi Max cause you ain t going to bed brother kind of books The story arc deals with two brothers and their inherited ability to travel between dimensions, but much of this first book is [...]


  • You can tell when a book is good because it opens your mind to other possibilities And his book truly did that for me I loved it so much.A fantastic re read Highly recommended


  • Book blurb In London, a young woman uses cutting edge technology to elude detection by the thousands of surveillance cameras that watch the city In New York, a secret shadow organization uses a victim s own GPS to hunt him down and kill him In Los Angeles, a motorcycle messenger with a haunted past takes pains to live off the Grid free of credit cards and government IDs Welcome to the world of The Traveler a world frighteningly like our own My initial interest in this book was tweaked by my fasc [...]


  • This might be the worst book I ve read in years I gave it an extra star just for being kind of neat in the premise, but the writing leaves a lot to be desired.


  • I liked this novel of conspiracy and danger The series is delving into some eastern areas of belief as it moves.The characters here are well imagined and the story told well The background of the book I found fascinating Anyone familiar with Jeremy Bentham and the idea of the Panopticon would I think find this book interesting While at first glance it the fears of the character and the situation they struggle against seems very far fetched, the idea of a virtual Panopticon becomes far acceptabl [...]


  • Pretty tiresome tripe While the subject matter is very interesting, the book becomes a slog It is weighed down by its own cliches and overly worn themes Essentially, there exists a group of people with special powers to cross over to other dimensions Then there are a group of people who are sworn to protect them Then there are a group of people working to hunt them down All this takes place in a very near future dystopian surveillence society future as inke a month from now Its basically the Mat [...]


  • When the most intriguing question about a book is the real identity of the author, you know something isn t working.John Twelve Hawks lives off the grid and his novel, The Traveler is a warning to the rest of us consider doing the same We may not know it, but our world is just one of many realms, though only a special few people can break the barriers from one realm to another These people are called Travelers and they ve apparently been at war with a group called the Tabula for years The Travel [...]


  • This book got a lot of publicity prior to publication It was hailed as being phenomenal It describes a future dystopian society, where privacy and individual freedom are compromised The government wants in on that action, but the powers of observation and control are held by a group known as the Brethren who have all the cool toys a quantum computer, the means to tap into all kinds of monitoring devices worldwide, and the ability to make genetically mutated animals There s been a long battle bet [...]


  • Nice The first in a series, but neatly tied up at the end, so it can stand alone Classic plot with an interesting take on history, religion, and modern society gee, if I wanted to believe it was all true, I could there are no obvious contradictions between the fiction and perceived reality Which makes it a very nice read, and I look forward to picking up the sequel when it comes out, which should be real soon now.Oh, yes, the plot Maya should be a Harlequin Harlequins protect Travellers from the [...]


  • Another ridiculously good book that found me by pure chance All the conspiracy theorists of the world, this book is definitely for you As I count myself one of the men in the tinfoil hats, that book felt like home.My mom in law gave it to my hubby to read and it was gathering dust in our car, until one day I went to work forgetting my own book oh, horror and had to make do with this one.I was so engrossed in it, I did not put it down until it was finished Thanks, Mom grinning Brilliant conspirac [...]


  • I m embarrassed that I actually finished this book I thought it was so bad that I morally couldn t trade it in at the local used bookstore the one that has the biggest sci fi section and enough actual patrons to keep it changing and they sell new books too I considered burning it but then I lost interest until I started re reading some Foucault, and it brought the Panopticon to mind and then this book, which I now have to say This is the Worst Book I ever finished reading To cut to the chase, de [...]


  • I think I d actually give this a 2.75 out of 5 if I could, but 3 is fine because a lot of the flaws of the book don t matter when you re consuming it in audiobook form, as I did The audiobook reader does a wide range of accents and voices for every character, which makes it very enjoyable Those flaws the plot is extremely straightforward, the characters aren t much developed, and anyone who s not a citizen or a drone in this CCTV happy, consumerism driven society will greet you by asking if you [...]


  • John Twelve Hawks s true identity is unknown, even to his publisher He communicates by satellite phone and is essentially off grid And that s the author in real life In the book people with spiritual and psychic abilities are hunted down whilst the Harlequins who are off gridders are in place to protect them.The first part of the Fourth Realm trilogy is an exciting and paranoid novel with a taste of Enemy of the State that takes the reader on a Pullman style ride through various realities and ma [...]


  • Riveting Highly recommended Science fiction meets homeland security run amok meets the next prophet Featuring a bad ass woman as the ultimate fighting machine I m torn between wanting to see it made into a movie and leaving it alone as a great book Listened to it as an audio book, and the reader was fantastic He did all the accents wonderfully and really added a lot to it.


  • Nice story, but at times I wasn t too impressed and the book couldn t fascinate me the whole time, at times the pages sort of dragged on Storyline is exceptional though, some unexpected twists in the story makes you curious for , hope to read part 2 in the summer.


  • Freedom is the biggest myth ever created It s a destructive, unachievable goal that has caused a great deal of pain Very few people can handle freedom A society is healthy and productive when it s under control p 294 John Twelve Hawks is a man with a mission He is desperately worried about the state of our society and how we are being monitored and with each passing year, how surveillance cameras are being put up everywhere and how our information becomes and available to access for people [...]


  • The Traveler, by John Twelve Hawks, is one of the most interesting books I have read This book is definitely worth reading for fun The Traveler can catch any reader attention by the first page and keep them turning until the very end The novel was published in 2005 and was New York Times bestselling novel of John Twelve Hawks John Twelve Hawks has created a whole trilogy with his novels Including The Dark River, The Golden City, and The Fourth Realm Trilogy, etc The book is under fiction but fee [...]


  • This book has perplexed me It was serious and deep and a very interesting premise, I enjoyed Scott Brick narrating the book, but it really didn t thrill me This is apparently part of a trilogy I will read book 2 I think See if I get into the series as it goes along.



  • this trilogy was one I stumbled upon while looking for a good book I was immediately drawn in to the plot and the writing This is a fantasy, yet I find the premise so timely, the events so close to what our world is like, that I was unable to put it down All 3 books are excellent, the way the author talks about living off the grid, the way our lives are monitored so completely by cameras, face identification, social security numbers, the internet is frightening I found these books almost prophet [...]


  • I rarely feel like writing reviews, but this book made me do it because it really disappointed me.The hype about it and about the author remaining anonymous got me excited Who is the author Some people guessed J.K Rowling, some said Dan Brown, some even said it s Stephen Hawking I wanted to believe it s Stephen Hawking After reading the book, I must say, I would be very disappointed if it was Stephen Hawking The author is probably the closest to Dan Brown s style of writing, although Brown seems [...]


  • A review I did for the Rocky Mtn News Plot in a nutshell A secret society known as the Tabula aims to control mankind using the invisible technology surrounding the modern world the grid In the past, the Tabula has attempted to eradicate Travelers those who can travel to other dimensions a la Matrix style out of body experiences because of their threat to the grid s goals But they now believe that Travelers, almost extinct, can help them reach the next step of evolutionary and technological adva [...]
