I tried, I really did, but I had to give up after struggling through 13% of this novel.

I guess that this could be a good tale, albeit a considerably shorter one, if the author employed the services of an editor.

Both the grammar and narrative actually hurt my eyes after a while, with the continued repeating of descriptions from one sentence to the next, sometimes not even using different words, just changing the order.

I may try again one day, when I'm very drunk and have run out of other things to read!

I downloaded the sample and have to say the first two pages hooked me and I knew then that I would have to read the whole story.

I enjoyed the story, and thought it very interesting in regard to the 'missions' and how they were dealt with. I did feel this was in a 'telling not showing' style, but I couldn't fault the actual story and loved the ending. It was exactly my cup of tea and I throughly enjoyed it.

Considering time travel has been done a lot in books, I found this angle unique and liked the way the author tied it all together. Once I started the story I had trouble putting it down.

Sorry, not worth the money 30 Mar 2008
By Anon - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I applaud the author for this piece, but unfortunately this fails to meet the grade. He combines themes and ideas from Star Trek and Back to the Future along with some originality. The writing ranges from interesting to downright boring. I felt as though I was reading something written by 2 people combined into one. Too little time is spent on what would be interesting parts. The ending completely falls apart. I skimmed the ending in shear frustration.
Need to expand the idea,more time in the past with the events. Get rid of the "Star Trek" terminology.The idea of slingshot around the sun is trite. The ending needs to be far more interesting.It completely falls apart- obviously rushed to complete the tale. A more subtle finish with a better twist. I'd rather a longer book than this. And while you spent a lot of time on this (wordplay here) I am not happy I spent 7.20. That is a price of a real book....

Don't Waste Your Time On This One 17 Aug 2011
By BIG Mike - Published on Amazon.com

First, apologies to the auther...I'm sure you tried hard and it's admirable that you wrote and published a book.

Where to begin? Ok, the author draws heavily from other popular science fiction, without making an effort to explore any original ideas. There's almost no character development and the author just assumes everyone knows what he's thinking on the parts left out.

The various conversations that take place read as if a 6th grader was trying hard to use direct speech to impress his English teacher.

This is one of the few books I was not able to finish - life is just too short!

Needs a Little More Work 15 Nov 2010
By jemma - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I love all things related to time travel, that being said I was a little disappointed with this book.It starts out okay but quickly goes down hill. Halfway through the book it felt like it ran out of ideas and became a race to get to the end of the book.
The dialog seems a little forced and slightly old fashioned. It reminded me of Sci-fi books written it the 1960s.
The action scenes are the same formula over and over again. Not very exciting or unexpected, just flat. To me it seemed to just rushed.

not worth the price 21 Oct 2011
By Ephry Merkur - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I have just finished 2 novels by Connie Willis on Time travel-Doomsday and a story on the Blitz on London-that were simply fabulous and had won awards-
I thought it would be fun to try another time travel story.
This story is cute but seems written for a child-maybe it was for an elementary school level reader.
Just silly and not worth the effort.Glad it did not cost more.
Great time travel adventure. 29 April 2012
By l.s.s - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Some of the most famous events in American and world history set the stage in this great sci-fi time travel adventure. It catches your attention from the start and never lets go until you reach the end. The characters are well rounded and well written. The historical events are well researched and written to where it's plausible
