Six II: A Tall Tumultuous Tale by Ron Weinkauf is a hilarious science fiction story with unusual characters and fraught with unwonted hilarity. It starts aboard a spaceship bound for Earth. The astronauts - Liza, Horatio, and Easy, together with Otto, the little dog - are awakened from their slumber by their Commander, Sonny, who has just discovered that one of his hands looks different, golden. They have had extraordinary experiences on the six-sided crystal and while Sonny has a transformed hand, the others equally feel different physically. It’s the beginning of a great adventure involving a sorcerer, a tale of love, and an imaginary world in which readers will feel at home.
Ron Weinkauf has written a story that is unique. This author has a gift for dialogues and these stand out in that they capture the slang of a specific milieu brilliantly and allow character traits to come out while exploring elements of the plot and the conflict. Character development is skillfully handled and readers will want to follow these characters as they evolve through the story. The themes of teamwork, friendship, love, and adventure are beautifully woven into the fabric of this story. The plot points are fairly good, but what caught my attention was the fun nature of the characters and the dialogues. The story starts with a humorously dramatic incident that incites the curiosity of the reader, and moves on from one oddity to the next. Six II: A Tall Tumultuous Tale offers vivid images with the world building, and characters that make for great companions. I loved it!
