3.0 out of 5 stars A story of long reaching consequences, 30 Jun 2013
This review is from: A Time of Myths: A Mystery Adventure (Paperback)
I was sent a copy of this book to review by the author. I have to admit I normally turn down requests from self published authors as I am never too sure of the quality but the synopsis of this book grabbed me. It is based around the story of a group of friends who meet at Woodstock and how what happened then affected the rest of their lives.

I found it a bit slow at the start and then very fast paced at the end when everything started to come together. It would have been more enjoyable to read if the pace had been more consistant. I put it down in the middle and didn't feel the urge to come back to it for a week or so, but once I got to the last third of the book I was up late in the night finishing it. It was quite philiosphical and very descriptive, I did enjoy reading about Woodstock. It conjured up images of what it must have been like to have been there at the time.

I also liked how it switched from the past to present time, gradually unravelling what had happened back in 1969. In a few places it did get a little confusing but not to the point that it affected the readability of the book. The story itself was a little sad and depressing for me, I prefer my books a lot more upbeat. It's not my normal type of book but it's good to try something different every now and then.
