- This novel takes place on a world where gravity
has shifted. West is now up and east is now down, so
the inhabitants perceive themselves as living on a
endless wall. They call it the worldwall. The novel
follows the adventures of Tighe or more appropriately the
misadventures of Tighe, because for the most part he is a
passive participant in this novel. Things keep happening
to him, he falls into one situation after another.
While it is interesting to see what the shift in
gravity has done the the world, you need a character that
has a reason to exist to make a good story. The good
thing about this novel is that the author has created a
unique world, but he also created a forgettable story. I
give this novel 2.50 stars.
