    One thought on “Lost In Infinity: Deja Vu Redux”

    1. Right from the first few pages I knew that writing a review of Lost In Infinity was going to be tough because, in my opinion, it’s a book built on contradictions. This is a very strong element of this extraordinary piece of literature, but it’s also a headache for any reviewer—you really need to focus to get the message Travis put into this novel for you.
