This book is a real page turner and I bet loads of people will identify with the main character. Have you ever wondered what your life would be like if you'd made a different choice at a particular point. This book really gets you thinking. I couldn't put it down.

These are by far the best books I have ever read. I read both in 48 hours. I could not put them down and at the end of book two I was on the edge of my seat and my heart was racing till the very last word. Would make an excellent film

This is a parallel universe/multiverse story. This is not a favourite genre, but I was oddly attracted to the first book and, once involved, read straight through and pretty much continued immediately into the second. As a one time London resident, I found the settings and the central pivot of the tube station as a portal between one reality or time line and another is interesting and well utilised. I am not normally one for "branched timelines" stories, too much baggage, but this one is well crafted and keeps science or pseudo science within bounds while it concentrates on the human experiences much more - family, career, ambitions etc. The alternate lives as viewed through the two different wives is nicely handled, as are their different existences in the two realities. The end is a tease, and again not my normal choice but one which is very well done, leaving the reader to ponder a human experience rather than a "techno thriller". A very good read.

I really enjoyed these novels (one and two - you have to read them in order). Not my usual choice of read, but found the preview intriguing, and was not disappointed. The main character is always wondering if he has taken the right turn in life, maybe the grass is greener on the other side. One day he enters a sort of parallel universe where some things are the same and others completely different: for instance the Dome is there, but right in the centre of London and has proved a much more popular site. His life has taken a different turn in this world too, and in a lot of respects, he is much happier and fulfilled. But there is one thing he had in his previous life which he cannot forget. He struggles with the problem of returning and how to do it. Will he wont he? Read it and see.

Enjoyed it a lot but a few criticisms.
First I enjoyed the storyline, characters and general feel of the books, found them compelling.

A few points; had the protagonist never heard of a detective agency, was there a miraculous conception at the end, unless I missed something from the act to the discovery was very quick indeed; why so many dream chapters? always strikes me as a way to pad out. but I am nit-picking
A discussion point for Book groups: Did the author have an ending in mind that stretched the creative rather than what we used to call a cop out when they did that sort of thing with TV dramas; or is he saving it for another book.
I think it would be a creative challenge to take it further .. but I suspect not.

After completing part one of the book, I HAD to buy part 2. I couldn't leave it, I had to find out if he made it back to his own timeline. Without (hopefully) giving too much away, the ending in the book left me very frustrated and wanting to know more. I didn't want the story to end. I laughed, cried, sympathised and related to the main character's experiences throughout the story - the reader almost believes he is real. An excellent read.

I have read a number of Ian C.P. Irvine books and have enjoyed all of them. His stories are well written and hang together very well. I'm looking forward to my next CP Irvine book.

I loved both books. But the ending leaves you hanging. Not knowing which world he went to. Disappointing for me

I enjoyed both books 1st on holiday and 2nd recovering from an operation they really bring you into the story and I was really tempted to look at the end to see what happens but not so easy to do on a kindle .
I would really like to read a 3rd book maybe about James in his two worlds and about his life's with Sarah .
Highly recommend these as a holiday read trouble is you can't put them down .

Loved both these books, read the first book and had no choice but to download the second. Reminiscent of Sliding Doors, I would have loved to know how Sarah was getting on in our world. I was on the edge of my seat and actually screaming at my kindle at the end I definitely think there is a third book here. can't say anymore without spoiling. I would definitely recommend this book.
