Book Review: _Spin_ by Robert Charles Wilson

I always look for Wilson's works whenever I go to any bookstore. He likes to take the real world and give a set of interesting circumstances and see how mankind reacts. He never lets the science, however strange it might be, get in the way of the characters involved. In Spin, the world has been surrounded by a time bubble, blocking out the stars and only letting sunlight through. Time outside of Earth is going much faster than inside of it. This brings the nova of the sun closer by years, not centuries. This is the story of a family of scientists and their next door neighbor, Tyler Dupree, and their relationships against the destruction of the world. A very well written work by one of Canada's top Science-Fiction writers. The perfect start to an interesting series, if Wilson wants to develop it.
