space above and beyond
“SPACE: Above and Beyond” by Peter Telep is a fantastic book. I recommend it
to everyone who loves anything science fiction. To me the theme of the story is to never
let go of your dream. The main characters in this book include Nathan, who the story is
based around, his girlfriend Kylen, who dies, and new friends that he makes. The story
was told from a third person point of view. The story is set in the 22nd century. The
different settings include The Marines Air Space Base, where most of the story is told,
and fighting in space with aliens. The Teleps tone is very modern and futuristic type.
Teleps always talks about things that they used to back in the old days, which is our
present time. The story is basically about Nathan who was supposed to go the space with
his girlfriend Kylen and several others to start a colony on a planet in space. This
colony was started to start new life in space and the people who went would never come
back to earth. Nathan and Kylen were planning everything for their future, marriage
children, and their house they were going to live in. About six hours before launch
Nathan and Kylen are ordered that, because of limited space, one of them must stay behind.
Nathan tries to stow away on the shuttle but gets caught and Kylen goes to space. All
