Review by: Jo Steinman on May 20, 2015 :
J. Garwood, PH.D. captured the essence of this novel better than I ever could. "A voyage from within and without, this novel transports us to the frontiers of an existence that knows no frontiers, where physics and metaphysics merge into a timeless, seamless whole. Enigma..."

For weeks after reading it, snippets of the novel lingered in my memory, drawing me into a realm I seldom visited before. Thank you Mr. Law.

Review by: Barbara Woolfe on May 17, 2015 :
I’ve been an avid reader of Stan I.S. Law for years. Each time he surprises me with his knowledge, the scope of his imagination and the poetic spin of his descriptions. He is a writer I recommend to everyone who wants to be not only entertained, but also to be challenged to the limits of her or his imagination. Read it. You'll be surprised.

And then tell me if you agree!

Review by: James Jenkins on May 03, 2015 :
"I find it vaguely amusing how distant memories saunter into my mind, in bits and pieces, little unordered snippets, disjointed strips of lace,"

The above quote almost summarizes the book to the point where I abandoned it. The content follows the quote but I did not find it amusing to read. Read about 6% before giving up.

Review by: Sylvester Drake on Jan. 10, 2012 :
It unfolds slowly, drawing you into the lives of characters that will soon take over your world. Trust me, they are unique. Then science fiction starts in earnest. Did you ever make love swinging on a chandelier in gravity 6x smaller than that on Earth? And that just a small part of it!

As always with Stan Law, the line between physics and metaphysics is delightfully blurred.

Review by: Marlon (Marvin) D. Clark on Sep. 03, 2011 :
One can but wonder where physics end and metaphysics begin. With scientists talking about multi-universes, and about at least eleven dimensions defining our reality, frankly, I find everything Stan Law writes more and more believable. Certainly no less so than theoretical physics. At the very least, I can keep hoping that he is right!

Review by: Anetta Bach on Aug. 31, 2011 :
I think I’d like to fly to the moon, and dine in a crystal dome. Then dance by the Earthlight. And then fly into a realm as strange as the universe that surrounds us to which only Heidi seems to have access. I’m sure Heidi would take me along… talk of being romantic…

What a story!

Review by: Bohdan Czytelnik on Aug. 28, 2011 :
I must say that I never imagined the Second Coming to take place in the manner suggested by this extraordinary novel. When I thought of it, I always went back to the past, forgetting that the Old Masters have earned their immortality. Here, the folly of mine, of Homo sapiens, is exposed. It appears that we did not pass the test; did not use the talents given to us.

As always, Stan Law gives us a book with something think about. To solve the Enigma of our lives.

Review by: Patrick Johnson on Aug. 26, 2011 :
While the book unfolds into a novel that is definitely science fiction, it can stand its ground as literature, as a romance, as a psychological study of a girl who lost both her parents, yet, through means of her own, seems to rediscover them both on Earth as well as in heaven. A strange, haunting book that will leave you wondering about the reality we live in.

Review by: Hanna K. Loda on Aug. 25, 2011 :
I loved Heidi. She emerges from the depth of loneliness and disenchantment to, literally, conquer the world. Or at least, to save humanity from extinction. You’ll never know what’s real and what isn’t, unless you accept her reality as your own. An extraordinary story.

Review by: Adam Kerry on Aug. 23, 2011 :
It’s been a while since I’ve read any Sci-Fi, but, knowing that it’s from Stan Law, I couldn’t resist it. It seems that whatever Law writes comes in a complete package of love, family, romance, suspense, mystery, metaphysics and adventure. Now, more and more often, I also enjoy his surreptitious humor. In addition, his snippets of undisguised poetry make his writing utterly unique. Mr. Law is becoming an enigma himself!

Review by: BozenaH on Aug. 20, 2011 :
I read the book in paperback. By the time I finished chapter 2, I was in love with Heidi. I watched her grow, mature, overcome her emotional emptiness like a heroin from a fin de ciècle romance. And then… and then came science fiction. Thrilling, tense, mysterious, no wonder the book is titled Enigma. By the time you finish you’ll be either totally lost, or totally swept by its magic.
