(I received this book for free as part of Goodreads First Reads giveaways).
(This review may contain spoilers).
I’ve read – and seen – quite a lot of things that have to do with time travel. It’s not a unique idea, but it’s always entertaining to read – especially when it’s handled well, which I felt was the case here.
I was a bit unclear about how the timing worked with the year Miles went back to. There didn’t seem to be a clear time frame for the two periods of time travel that had occurred.
Although I felt the whole thing with the culture shock and Miles having to deal with needing to work made sense, I wasn’t entirely sure what the whole reason was. I think I would have liked there to be a bit more of an explanation. The book started in a good place, but I would have liked to see more of the background.
I did like the characters in the book and there were some surprises. I think there was a lot that made sense and I felt there was clearly a lot of research that had gone into this book. I really did like the evolution of Miles’ character and I felt that he’d grown up a lot by the end of the book.
It was nice to see all of the loose ends tied up, though it would be nice to see a sequel to this book. Or even a prequel. (Which may exist already – I don’t know). I’d definitely be interested in reading more books by this author in the future.
