5.0 out of 5 stars Intriguing time travel novel, 15 Aug. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Borrowed Time (Kindle Edition)
This is an intriguing and very thought provoking time travel novel. In an alternate 1995, fifty years after Nazi Germany has developed nuclear weapons and defeated Britain and Russia, a scientist called Tony Smith invents a time machine. He is challenged by the Authorities to go back in time and save Adolf Hitler's life before he commits suicide in the Berlin Bunker.

Things don't go quite to plan and Tony has to really think through where his loyalties lie, especially as the outcome of the Second World War is at stake and of course his own future.

'Borrowed Time' leaves you thinking about how one individual's actions can have serious consequences. The plot has plenty of twists and turns, many of which you really don't expect. The ending is very clever - but I won't say anything more about that, you'll have to read the book for yourself!

My only gripe about the book is the number of spelling and grammatical mistakes, eg 'Führer', not 'Furher', and 'Nazi's' used as a plural rather than 'Nazis'. All that's needed is a bit of proofreading. However, this does not detract from the novel's subject material, so I've still awarded five stars.

Note from Author.
Thank you very much for your comments and taking the time to leave a review.
I'm pleased you enjoyed the book, and would like to let you know that I have now uploaded a revised version (21/8/12), which I hope has addressed your issues with my spelling and grammatical mistakes. I believe that this eventually becomes available as a free update to those who has already purchased the book.

Downloaded this only a few weeks ago so if this is the revised version God knows how many spelling and grammatical errors were in the first one. It's unreadable. Waste of money.
