Time travel a differnt way
on 25 October 2013
I bought and read this book after reading Stephen King's 11/22/63, as he referred to it as the best time travel book ever and, I think, took some ideas from it.
I found it had promise at first but then got a bit stale and turgid and drawn out too much. Maybe would be better received by someone who know New York well (where it's set), but I wasn't interested in that; more of the mechanism Finney used to get his character back and forth in time. And this wasn't a machine - seems just a thought process.
Anyway not outstanding, but sufficiently intriguing for me to buy his more recent sequel. Let’s see how that goes...
