Elsewhere left me feeling a little conflicted. The fantasy side of Amelia Earhart's story had some fun bits and brightened my day, but felt it lacked substance. Faerber created some interesting characters and left lots of room to either build them up or destroy them.
Earhart ends up in another dimension / time warp and quickly leads the way into shenanigans, with a pretty good twist at the end of this volume. The twist at the end is certainly my favorite thing about Elsewhere. I think my biggest complaint is that the book felt juvenile. I might be in the minority, but the simplistic world building and dialog felt geared towards teens and young adults. Maybe it was, I have no idea.
So...all in all. Meh. Wasn't terrible. Wasn't great. Wouldn't mind picking up the second volume to see if the story and depth progresses.
