Two of minds

Thus far, I read a very interesting book by a notorious author, William H

Keith Jr. He wrote a book titled ?Two of Minds?. It?s a very fascinating

book that I would recommend to many young readers who love to read on subjects

pertaining to sci-fi. It might have been confusing in some parts of the book,

but as you read on you are able to further understand the context of what was


In a city named Lison, where it was separated into to parts, the affluent and

the poor. The government had separated into to because he hated when the poor

would steal from wealthy tourists, and give Lison a bad name. An example of one

young thief is young man named Spacer. He at one time sneaked passed a guard to

the wealthy part of town.

Spacer was about 14 years old, with dirty blond hair. He came from a poor

background. He was highly motivated by a deck of holo-tarot cards that were

given to him by his grandmother, which are passed down from generation to

generation. He finds him self in a great deal of changes as the story goes on.

Another main character is Ta Shan Ta. She was an alien that could read minds.

She was also a very special scientist, that worked with a group of scientist to

establish a mission to Plant Storm, which at the end is a very successful one.

While Spacer was at the wealthy side, he picked a few pockets and had become

a guide for a very affluent man, named Mr. Thorns. Mr. Throne was from Earth,

and was supposed to be part of this mission to Storm. Spacer gained Mr. Throne?s

trust and guided him around Lison. At the end, after taking Mr. Throne to his

hotel, Spacer stole a secretary from Mr. Throne. A secretary is like a Palm

Pilot to point that out. After walking a few feet, Spacer felt guilty about

stealing Throne?s secretary because he gained his trust, and was actually

treated like a human and as a friend for the first time.

While going back to return the secretary, he noticed that a group of 4 men

took Throne and searched him for something. What that something is was unsure to

Spacer. They began beating Throne up because he wasn?t giving them what they

wanted. One man later pulled out a gun, looked around to make sure no one was

their and then murdered Throne. After witnessing such a crime, Spacer?s heart

was pounding extremely fast that he knew that it could be heard. The killer

spotted Spacer and began to chase him. But Spacer out-ran the man and got away

from them.

Spacer was later considered a suspect for Throne?s death after he was

found. The cop?s said that he was heavily armed and dangerous. Spacer then

broke into the secretary and went into the address book and scheduler. He found

the address of the hotel and a room number. He suspected that he was supposed to

meet his friends in that room. Spacer went into the hotel unnoticed, sat in the

lobby and did a tarot reading for him self to see what he should to next. A card

came up meaning a big change in his life was about to occur. With that he went

upstairs and gave the secretary to Throne?s friends. He told them what had

happened, but two of the members didn?t believe that he didn?t kill Throne.

But Ta Shan Ta, had telepathic powers and could read minds, she read Spacers

mind, and his thoughts and said that he wasn?t a killer. They all believed Ta

Shan Ta, but one was still in doubt. Spacer was told about the mission and then

he slowly asked if he could go along instead of Throne. They didn?t follow

through with that right away. But were convinced that he could come.

They ran to some troubles, which are better left unsaid to that the whole

story is ruined. They took off of Lison and went off to Storm. On their way

there, two ships from an enemy who knew about Storm and wanted to beat them to

the planet and attacked them. They destroyed one ship, but 2 were still on their

tails, but far behind.

They made it to Storm and safely landed. They got some sleep, and began their

mission in the morning. A few days into the mission they ran into major

problems, which one way or another was solved.

The first conflict that occurred was that the enemy had captured their ship

and they four people that were on the ship were also captured. But there were

four other people outside the ship exploring, and found an enemy site and

discovered a few stormies who knew English and helped them to strengthen the

vocabulary of a translator used to communicate with non-English speaking

stormies. But two of them were captured and two escaped an attack led by the

enemy. Spacer and Marcia were captured but Ta Shan Ta and Diana got away. The

one?s that were captured were put into labor and were forced to work for their

enemy, VoidCorp.

Ta Shan Ta and Spacer worked together since they both had telepathic powers

and could silently communicate from long distances, and planned to lead a battle

and the stormies, since they are surprisingly strong, would be a great help to

get rid of VoidCorp. The battle was led and they won, but at the end many

stormies died from a hidden gate, which made artificial lighting that, they

couldn?t stand. But they got their ship back and killed many of VoidCorp

employees that were on Storm and left the planet.

Spacer changed a whole lot from the beginning of the story. He was a thief

that always would steal to make a living, but then he changed to a completely

honest man that gained the trust of people who he could call his friends. Ta

Shan Ta, being his closest friend, decided to send him to a Ranger school in

Arles, another city. His dreams would come true, and he would be able to explore

many planets just like how he just did.

I believe that the point of this story was to prove to us, that one could

change only if you give them time and if that person is wanting to. Spacer was a

great man, who completely changed throughout the book. Even though it should

that it might take some bad to make a good was the answer to how he changed.

That was wrong, but it should that one could change and I believe that that?s

why William H. Keith Jr. wrote this great and fascinating novel.
