Book of the moment: Ring Around the Sun / by Mathieu Vaillancourt

I am currently reading a book that my dad lent me by Clifford Donald Simak called '' Ring around the Sun ''. Less than 100 pages and I will have finished reading this good book.

The book is the french version so I made a translation of the text on the backcover of the book:

Cliffwood, 1987. Passionate about his work as a writer, Jay Vickers chose to live in this peaceful village in upstate New York. But the outside world will take him on an incredible adventure. A world suddenly at bay: throughout the country, families are disappearing; on the market, objects, cars, all indestructible, all eternal, arise from nowhere. The United States industry is wavering, their political balance too ... Someone then wakes up in Vickers and remembers another land where twice he has penetrated.

Ring Around the Sun is my second science fiction novel I've read in my life. 'Roadside Picnic' by the brothers Strugatsky was the first I read this year. Usually, I am more in horror, fantasy and fairy tales.

I intend to read other books of this type in the future. I discover a literary genre, which to date, I like a lot.
