The description of Out of Her Universe states that a young woman, Hannah Fleischer, has no idea that she was not born in our universe on Earth. This is just a tiny portion of the novel. The book is more about how there are multiple universes. So far Earth One only knows of a few. Their close twin, Earth Two, holds counterparts of many of Earth One’s inhabitants. The two worlds once were identical in history.
Earth Two has taken hold of a different destiny, due to the death of Hitler before he came into power. There was no Holocaust, World War II, arms race, or really even a United States of America. Due to a naturally occurring pirisma, a neo-Nazi is able to cross into Earth One to wreak havoc.
I really enjoyed reading this novel. It was very interesting to see Jacqueline Diamond’s take on parallel universes. Her ability to create a realistic alternate universe that was so similar to our own yet so different is amazing. Although this was a great read, it did take me a little longer to read, mainly because there was so much to keep up with (who was who, who knew what, how did they know that).
I would definitely recommend this to sci-fi fanatics and anyone who likes shows like “Fringe” and “Dr. Who”, as it caters to the alternative universe themes. However, even if you don’t like those shows, still give it a try! (Don’t tell anyone, but I dropped “Fringe” only 5 episodes in… :))
I will be reading the sequel when it’s available!
