Review by: Bohdan Czytelnik on Jan. 15, 2014 :
Since I read the Pluto Effect I began to regard man’s future in a completely new light. We are not becoming good or evil, we are only likely to become more powerful. Good or evil comes later. Although, it seems, that technology might tend to set us back rather than advance our progress in sharpening our wits.
If you’re interested in man’s potential, then this book is a must read. In addition you will be entertained, amused and often surprised.

Review by: Marlon (Marvin) D. Clark on Dec. 15, 2013 :
I am yet to read a Stan Law novel that would not surprise me. While they all reach beyond the ordinary, it seems that his imagination continues to uncover new vistas, cross new horizons, to amuse, and invariably to make me think “what if?”

In Pluto Effect he postulates that the old Greek gods had been real people, with very human characteristics. They only way in which they differed was that they seemed to have the power to fulfill their wishes. But even so, gods fought with gods even as people fight with people. His definition of god tends toward omnipotence, without defining morality or ethics. That last seems to be at the core of his writing.

If he’s right, than we can begin to regard the world of today in a completely new light.

Highly recommended.

Most writers have a theme, like murder, or suspense, or erotica, or some other nonsense. Not Stan Law. Each time I download one of his books I am amazed that he tackles reality from a new, completely fresh point of view, even if it reaches back to Greek mythology. In addition, he explains the Zodiac in a way that I’ve never heard it explained before.

A most amazing writer. The WALL, now Pluto Effect. I can but wonder how this Trilogy will conclude. But I am sure I’ll be as surprised as I am so far…

Not an easy book to follow, but if you enjoy learning while you’re entertained, then this is a book for you. I loved it. I also love Ambrosia, and Mama, and the Greek Island and Lazy and Goldie. For me that’s enough, yet there is more. Much more.

Review by: Sylvester Drake on Dec. 07, 2013 :
As scary as it is entertaining. The story that began in “WALL—Love, Sex, and Immortality” moves on to place the reader in the middle of world upheavals. What began as the “Arab Spring”, is now sweeping the world, leaving humanity without leaders. Only a small group of people on a Greek Island offers hope of survival. The rest of the world is swept under the influence of the Pluto Effect that removes the old to make room for the new.

A fascinating concept developed with the usual masterly strokes of Stan Law’s pen. I couldn’t put it down.

I can’t wait for Book Three of the Trilogy!

If you read WALL - Love, Sex, and Immortality, then Pluto Effect is a must read. If you haven’t, read both! Ambrosia and Simon continue on their chosen paths, reaching ever higher results in their specialized fields. Simon seems to unravel the secrets of the Pluto Effect, while Ambrosia with her genius in particle physics enables them to escape its wrath.

Quite a twist from the relatively quiet Book One of the Trilogy, but a twist will not want to miss.

Review by: Patrick Johnson on Dec. 03, 2013 :
Stan Law’s insertion of Greek Mythology into the plot is nothing short of brilliant. I had to reread some parts of the novel, but it was well worth my while. It has been years since I read of various myths, and Stan Law made the gods and goddesses come to life. Amazing.

And, of course, Ambrosia is just a charming and impressive, her mother astounding, and Simon continues in his chosen studies, a typical professor who’s trying to make head and tail of the collapsing civilizations. Hence, the Pluto Effect. Great fun

Review by: Adam Kerry on Dec. 01, 2013 :
Most of us find it hard to believe that the status quo, wherein the ‘few’ own 90% and the rest just 10% or less, will last forever. In this novel Stan Law takes it upon himself to show the consequences of such thinking. I will not give the story away, but it seems to me that the book is highly prophetic.

In addition, Law makes for an interesting case that various myths must have originated in reality, and suggests how such myths and the ensuing religions may have formed. I’m looking forward to Book Tree of the trilogy, where I hope he’ll develop this philosophy even further. It is hard to believe that all myths were made up out of thin air. It is evident that Stan Law thinks otherwise.

Review by: BozenaH on Nov. 29, 2013 :
I read the printer’s proof. As always, Stan Law amazes me with the width and breadth of his knowledge, which he manages to convey to the reader in a form that is both entertaining and fascinating.

Ambrosia and Simon of the "WALL—Love, Sex, and Immortality", continue on their chosen paths. While the world is facing the inevitable consequences of the Pluto Effect at the beginning of the Age of Aquarius, Simon is trying to comprehend its consequences, while Ambrosia again proves her genius in enhancing her quantum tunneling apparatus, which allows them to move freely, outside the spying eyes of various governments.

This is a book that is both apocalyptic and giving hope of survival. It seems that “Of Gods and Men” will continue in this vein, assuring of men’s immortality.

PS. Their children add the elusive Stan Law humour.
