In the author's words;
“What now?” she asked.
“Touch it again,” encouraged Jenny. This time Charley found her face falling into the sticky surface of the door. Automatically closing her eyes until her head felt free and still, she dared to open them to see billions of figures, scuttling like ants, almost covering part of the Earth’s surface.
But it was the jumble of thunderous sounds, indistinguishable to her ears, which caused her heart to quicken.
Pushing back against the pressure behind, she heard squelching as her head was gradually freed, the opening she’d made immediately sucking itself back into place with a jerk.
“W…What was that?” she stammered.
“You were seeing the world as it is now…everyone rushing, thinking only of themselves, not remembering the past or each other. “
Definitely recommend this book for fun reading and exploring the unknown.
