Enjoyed the theme and the story, a little repetitive in places but I like the idea of being able to do "good deeds" by going back and changing history --- although the consequences of this could be explored further. But there was too much science, one part it went on about quantum physics etc for about 6 pages - I just skipped over this bit.

But a good first effort! S

I found it a real page turner with lots of interesting facts and a bit of humour thrown in. It was a really enjoyable read that I could immerse myself in. Perfect for those lazy, summer days or long winter nights. Looking forward to reading any sequel.

This first part of an interesting mini-trilogy by a new writer is a reminder that science fiction is usually about much more than science. The sequels - "Only Time Will Tell" and "Out of Time" - are linked by the initially accidental and finally deliberate time travel of the central figures common to each of them, Michael Green - a quantum physicist - and his patient but sometimes acerbic girlfriend, Ann. In "Take Your Time" there is greater attention to the quantum mechanical framework that makes time travel not just plausible but, in some views, an unavoidable aspect of a universe which J B S Haldane famously observed "is not only queerer than we suppose, but queerer than we can suppose".

However, part of the enjoyment of the series is sharing Michael/ the author's sharply focused enthusiasms for football (one club above all), popular music (especially the two decades following WW II) and politics (one political philosophy, but spanning at least two centuries). The historic figures from these three areas provide plot lines for the attractions - and the great risks - of time travel. So, "Out of Time" becomes a vivid and closely argued essay in counter-factual history: what different future might Great Britain have faced if it had taken a different view of Russian-Ottoman rivalry in the 11th century? And - here's the neat twist - what different event in the 21st century might have led to a dire 20th century for the UK?

The dialogue can be a trifle stilted in the earlier parts, but in the final novella the genre almost changes from scientific fiction to the type of imaginary dialogue involving historic figures which was popular in the earlier part of the 20th century - see, for example Eric Linklater's witty "The Raft & Socrates asks Why" (1942). Here the writing develops page-turning fluency. You'll enjoy the journey, but make sure you know how to come back to the present.
