|User Summary:||Both of your parents are physicists dabbling in antimatter experiments. One morning, you wake up, and all is quiet. Too quiet.|
This is Jay Leibold's first entirely non-historical entry in the series, and it's quite good. The introductory section is particularly well-written, conveying the world's silence effectively and eerily and seeming almost poetic coming from a Choose Your Own Adventure book. While the story uses some of the most tired cliches of the series (eccentric scientists and KGB spies, among other things), it does so with enough skill to rise well above the material. Things are helped further by its sense of humor; it's hard not to chuckle at the choice on page 108, for example. Also worth noting is the fact that the boy in the illustrations sometimes looks sort of like I did when I was younger and had less hair. If I'd read this at the time, I imagine this would have increased the immersion factor a bit!
