The 22 Murders of Madison May
Multiverse. I thoroughly enjoyed Max Barry’s exploration of the multiverse in his novel titled, The 22 Murders of Madison May. We follow the same cast of characters in slightly altered universes in which the same dynamics play out multiple times. Readers already know that character Madison May is murdered multiple times. Journalist Felicity Staples becomes caught up in a crime story and then tries to stop the recurring psychopath from killing May. The small details about the alterations that Felicity finds as she enters a different world add to the richness of the story. What could have become repetitive turns out to be richer with each version. Fans of thrillers who can tolerate some science fiction components are those readers most likely to enjoy this entertaining novel. Rating: Five-star (I love it) Click here to purchase The 22 Murders of Madison May from amazon.com.
