When I started this, I wasn't sure what I'd make of it by the time I finished. I've read a lot of time-travel books recently, most of which I've enjoyed thoroughly. When I started this one, I have to admit that I wasn't too keen. The idea was good, but I just didn't feel anything towards the characters - instead it felt like something thought up by BBC Three.
However with that said, I found myself wanting to pick it back up again at every opportunity and when I finished, I jumped straight in to the second book. So yeah, I liked it. I liked it enough to pick the next one up immediately. I liked it enough to wonder if Rachel and Danny make it through their adventures.
As the book gets going, the characters get more of an appeal - I think the problem wasn't so much the central characters, but rather the teacher - as it seemed I switched off more in scenes where he played a part.
If you like time-travel as a genre, there are some great books out there, and some bad ones. This one for me is a good one and as such I'd say go for it.
