Half a Life is an unusually honest, thoughtful and unsettling memoir, which readers and critics are destined to call 'brave'—for it is brave.

Gordon Freeman, a recently employed theoretical physicist, is involved in an experiment analyzing an unknown crystalline artifact; however, when the anti-mass spectrometer beam contacts the crystal, it creates a resonance cascade that opens a dimensional rift between Black Mesa and another. The ironies in Half a Life wind like a fugue into infinity Identity is an enigma To make that sentiment breathe in the mouth of a living character, and then rise from the page with silent laughter, is a beautiful completion the mark of a genius and a cause of unending delight.
