Where The Earth SingsWhere The Earth Sings by Walter Rouzer
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

A very witty and engaging story for all the family...

Where The Earth Sings is a wonderfully written and richly descriptive novel with brilliantly drawn characters. The author paints a series of engaging, humorous and reflective moments in a very vivid and convincing way. The characters are drawn with great credibility and conviction.

I enjoyed the story, character development, and dialogue. There were plenty of subtle plot twists that I didn’t see coming and that added to the book’s mystique. When I stopped reading to work, I found myself wondering what happened in the book, and replaying parts of the story in my head to see if I could figure more out. It has been a while since I enjoyed a book this much. It’s a well written Humorous Fantasy with perfect pacing and a timely message.

The author starts off by setting no small task as a pair of young geniuses have only 10 days to lead the world to global peace. The book description continues with a sneak preview: ‘Imagine being twelve years old and waking up to discover technology is no more. Mobile phones don't exist. Automobiles, airplanes and modern conveniences aren't part of the fabric of lives. Well, if you’re Ziggy Zee, this is what your new reality is.

All the cars in the world turn into horse and buggies overnight. Commuters don’t have enough horse sense to drive them on modern freeways. Capuchin monkeys donning baseball caps embroidered with the letters GPS give directions. Electronic stop and go lights no longer exist. Instead, chimpanzees sit on top of poles directing traffic with STOP and GO signs.

Ziggy’s mother is in the hospital and needs technology to stay alive. She will die if technology is not returned in 10 days for her operation…The world is desperate to get technology back. Lucky for them, Ziggy knows what to do. But there’s a catch. She and her partner must first convince nations across the globe to work together in peace to save our oceans, forests and the animal kingdom.

Can Ziggy accomplish the impossible feat of bringing world peace in 10 days? Or has she been tasked to deliver the impossible?’ Well, if that doesn’t grab your interest, I don’t know what will. But if you want to find out what happens, you’ll just have to turn the pages for yourself! However, I will say it was well worth the read. It’s my second time reading this author and I must say I was very impressed again by his story-telling ability.

The story had every element a good story should have. An intriguing plot, attention to detail, but best of all fleshed out, well-written and well-rounded character development. There’s an abundance of well-illustrated scenes that make you feel like you are right there in the story, and that’s something I really look for in a good book.

Captivating and commendable, this work had me immersed from the beginning. It’s a thrilling and adventurous fiction fully loaded with love, passion, witty dialogue, and sharp humor. The story flowed from scene to scene with ease, and the author shows exceptional ability when it comes to storytelling. There are plenty of attention-grabbing moments in this page turner that will take the reader on a truly compelling and fascinating journey!

It’s one of those books that come along occasionally that makes you want to read it non-stop until you get to the end. I’m giving nothing further away here. And this, I hope, will only add to the mystery and enjoyment for the reader.

I’ll certainly be looking forward to reading more from Walter Rouzer in the future. The book has a distinctly cinematic feel to it, and I could easily see it being adapted for a made-for-TV movie or even the Silver Screen. A well-deserved five stars from me.
