4.0 out of 5 stars time travel fun, 24 May 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: A Shortcut in Time (Paperback)
I am a sucker for time travel stories which are based around normal everyday lives, with characters
struggling to come to terms with their new situation.

This was a fun tale and I was absorbed with the characters and the storyline.
I read it through in three sittings.

However, I have to agree with some other reviewers about the very rapid denouement. There should have been more linkage and storytelling to the incident that kicked the book off-the drownings. I am going to with-hold a star because of this.

It was still a great read.
Now read "Replay" by Ken Grimwood and "Timescape " by Greg Benford

4.0 out of 5 stars In Need of A Shortcut, 22 July 2007

This review is from: A Shortcut in Time (Paperback)
What a shame that this book took eighty or so pages to really get going, because from thereon the time travel aspect was thoroughly enjoyable.

Josh Winkler finds a pathway through town, Euclid Heights, Illinois, that can transport you into the past or future. He finds a mystery girl turning up from 1908, and then it gradually builds up to the interesting bits.

The ending leaves you a little surprised, though with time-travel you must expect things not to always remain the same when you get back to your own time.

It certainly deserves a 4 star rating, and in the Time-Travel ratings it may not be the greatest tale of all time, but if you're a TT freak you shouldn't miss it by any means.
