Product Description

Product Description

What happens when technology fails us completely? 
Journey Time explores this question by following seven people at the height of the greatest technological reversal in history.
 Set just 90 years into Earth's future, the individuals in this local self-help group all want to rebuild their lives. 
The struggle for each one is to find new meaning and new purpose in a world that may never move the same way again.

Reader Praise for Journey Time:

"Wonderfully original ...unique in so many ways ...a fascinating world filled with so many interesting things."

"I genuinely enjoyed reading Journey Time and found it thought-provoking. I suspect many others will too."

"...as someone who has never read any science fiction I have very much enjoyed it!"

"Original, intelligent, beautifully written and thought provoking."

About the Author

A lifelong fan of science-fiction and the genre’s ability to liberate thoughts on society and the human condition, Journey Time is Paul G. Diamond’s first novel. The literary influences he cites for this work include Albert Camus, Voltaire, George Orwell, Jonathan Swift, Philip K. Dick and John Steinbeck. Originally from East London, Paul now lives in Hertfordshire with his wife, daughter and two (generally) well-behaved dogs.

More About the Author

I've been an author since 2010 but it wasn't always this way. My career started out in recruitment, I then spent a brief but enjoyable spell in technology before finding my way back to supporting individual people and their careers. In 2007 I became self-employed, allowing me to focus on career development work and develop my own career in the direction of writing. So far, I have written two books (a career development guide, and a sci-fi novel) and my aim is to write more. My literary influences include Albert Camus, Voltaire, George Orwell, Jonathan Swift, Philip K. Dick and John Steinbeck. I am originally from East London, but now live in Hertfordshire with my wife, daughter and two (generally) well-behaved dogs.

5.0 out of 5 stars Really great read! 20 July 2014
By Eleanor
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This was a complete change of genre for me - I fancied something different and this definitely delivered! I could completely lose myself in this book and the story and characters have stayed with me long after I finished reading. Despite being set in the future the scenarios feel so relatable and relevant to modern day times. An engaging plot, very well-developed and relatable characters, and a lasting message that really makes you think. Loved it.

4.0 out of 5 stars Surprised how much I liked it! 23 April 2014
By Brooklyn Gal - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I have to say that this novel sneaked up on me. It’s been a while since I read science fiction, although at one point I was utterly addicted to Anne McCaffrey’s Dragonriders of Pern series, where there are fabulous creatures, otherworld beings, and the ever-present threat of the ominous Thread. So when I began reading Journey Time, I was waiting for the action. Where were the obstacles and odd creatures?

And lo and behold, as I let myself settle into this fascinating world, I soon realized that those things were there after all … in the guise of 7 human beings exploring one of the bravest new worlds ever. It is a time when the life they knew so well is brought to a screeching halt, and they now have to face living without fast-moving instantaneous travel and seeing what presents itself instead in their world-turned-on-its-head present. And, not a small thing, they also have to face dealing with each other.

This is an incredibly smart, original work that surrounds us with a vision of what might be as technology continues to make things easier and easier for us. But as a result, it also presents unforeseen challenges - and for some unleashes a deep questioning of who they truly are and what all this really means.

I admit that it took me a while to let myself go with the flow of what the author Paul Diamond was giving us, but as I moved through the pages and grew to know and embrace the characters - and delight in the author’s vision of a totally new world right here on earth - I wound up loving the book. There are also bits of humor and sly allusions to the old pre “zip travel” world, as well as a wonderfully inventive glossary, that I think readers will enjoy.

I recommend this book to anyone looking for a sci-fi story that is filled with human creatures and an off the beaten path formula – while still delivering a satisfying “other world” journey that left me hoping for more.
5.0 out of 5 stars Must read for anyone interested in the journey or too focused on the destination 8 Oct 2014

Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I absolutely loved this book. I read Paul's e-book 'The Career Explorer's Journal' and must say this one is even better!

I love the character development and could feel myself relating to his inner monologues. It was a quick read and worth every cent!

I have given this book to my dad (a big critic who was also pleasantly surprised with the books way of telling so many stories) as well as many people I know thru work who find themselves struggling to find their way. I'm here about to buy a handful more so I can hand them out at another career event.
