Evidence of Things Not Seen by Lindsey Lane
Posted by Krystal Larson at 1:30 AM Wednesday, August 6, 2014
When high school junior Tommy Smythe goes missing, everyone has a theory about what happened to him. Tommy was adopted, so maybe he ran away to find his birth parents. He was an odd kid, often deeply involved in his own thoughts about particle physics, so maybe he just got distracted and wandered off. He was last seen at a pull-out off the highway, so maybe someone drove up and snatched him. Or maybe he slipped into a parallel universe. Tommy believes that everything is possible, and that until something can be proven false, it is possibly true. So as long as Tommy’s whereabouts are undetermined, he could literally be anywhere.
Told in a series of first-person narratives from people who knew Tommy and third-person chapters about people who find the things Tommy left behind—his red motorbike, his driving goggles, pages from his notebook—Particles explores themes of loneliness, connectedness, and the role we play in creating our own realities.
This is an odd story that explores multiple points of view that are related to the story of a missing boy. It was interesting seeing all of the separate stories and takes on the events and how they unfolded. There were a few of the points of view that were only related in small ways and did not contribute a lot to the overall story. Also each chapter that had a different point of view was extremely short at times so the story really felt like it was jumping around a lot. That being said, there is still a lot of good in this book. I loved seeing the story come together as I read on and I truly do like a story that stands out as slightly different.
