The characters were sufficiently developed to let you connect with them without being too bogged down by irrelevant details.
I would definitely recommend this book to anyone who enjoys science fiction / time travel novels.
The first was how the author explained time travel using quantum mechanics; clearly explaining what was occurring as well as the potential effects that this could have. The explanations of the effects of Chance's actions were done extremely well.
The second was the author's character development. What begins with a simple motivation soon splits into something completely different, and perhaps more important, as the character's experiences elicit myriad emotions from both character and reader. Along with the time travel elements there is a simple but powerful storyline.
Overall, I was pleasantly surprised by this book and would definitely recommend it to readers who do not normally read science fiction as a break from the normal mystery/thriller genre.
An interesting tale that begins with escape from 9/11, moving on to a
dead father, to a homicide investigation, to time travel back to
the time of Jesus (which was excellent by the way), then on to Hitler.
Then we run into alternate universes caused by time travel interference,
and the story is nicely linked to a time guardian who's trying to find
the culprit who caused the deviation.
Yes, a worthy read and addition to the time travel genre.
The only minus, if you could call it that, is that the first half of the
book drags ever so slightly. The second half picks up the pace and is
mind-numbing and gripping both at the same time.
This story would have had 5 stars but at times during the book, I found the story heading in directions it didn't need to.
Overall, loved the characters, the story weaving of time travel & alternate universes. The ending I speculated on, actually turned out to be something I failed to guess!
