Reviews for 139 Years to the End of the World
Starart152 chapter 2 . 3/2
This is a fun little chapter where Milton Jones is went to the E.F.A. headquarters where he met with the decoder who analyze and translated Milton's grandfather song that can foretold the future. We don't know how the song was analyzed and decoded like that, but I'm sure there is a certain way for this.
Darth Zannacross chapter 1 . 3/1
Well, a somber start but one that looks like its going to lead to something quite epic. Well, a hard deal to make but at least unlike in Futurama he has a choice, lets see how many things are flying by the time he wakes up.
Starart152 chapter 1 . 2/29
This is a fun introduction to the main character and we got his motivation about why he wants to be frozen and go to the future. As for Matthews, we don't know how him and the government knows the world would end in 139 years, but it's interesting to see the how and what out main character would do in the future.

Honestly, man, this is one of the best sci-fi novels I have read on this site. You've captured the dislocation in time fairly well, although the technology in the outside world seems fairly static (although the limited resources of the city could definitely account for this). You give each character a distinctive narrative voice, and I thought I detected shout outs to other sci-fi (like the Winter Train as a Snowpiercer homage). A few minor plot issues, though (Spoiler warning): Still, given the prevalence of cybernetics and common EMP weapons, I'm surprised they'd lack hardening, to say nothing of a relatively unguarded EMP bomb. Maybe it was some sort of mega-HERF instead? Then there's more radical transhumanist options, like being a brain in a jar (Ghost in the Shell style). The nature of the Mist still seems vague throughout the story, but a certain twist at the last chapter really seemed to come from nowhere. I know it's got a supernatural/otherworldly origin (which I suspect ties into your other 139 themed works), but not sure we get mentions of a space program or attempts to leave the planet. A certain character's claims of time travel seem to be taken at face value by the protagonist as well. That said, though, still a highly enjoyable read.

As I said earlier, this is one of the more interesting novels I've read on FP. You capture the being dislocated in time fairly well, although the story has some (admittedly minor) flaws. One of the few things I've read in one sitting, and this is from someone jaded by 2 decades of recreational reading of all types of things.

This is extremely well done, and profound in many ways. Good job.
