(I received this book for free as part of Goodreads First Reads giveaways).
(This review may contain spoilers).
Ideally, I’d give this book 3.5 stars. The premise of this book was quite an intriguing one, but I found myself disconnecting from the characters for about half of the book.
The first part of the book was really interesting and managed to pull me in. Although I did see a particular twist coming, that scene did hold my attention enough to keep me reading and interested. I found Saskia to be a fairly interesting character.
I was expecting the sensation of deja vu to be utilised more than it actually was. I was confused quite a bit by how everyone fit together, but by the end of the book, it did all make a bit more sense.
I did feel that the technology wasn’t used as much as it could have been. I saw glimpses of the kinds of advances the world had made, but I was confused about the whole thing in Saskia’s apartment and how that technology all worked.
Anything to do with time travel can be really tricky and I do think it was handled pretty well and made quite a lot of sense. I wasn’t entirely sure about the ending of the book… but it’s true that a lot of the loose ends were tied up nicely.
Saskia grew on me a bit more as the book went on. The whole memory thing was an interesting concept, but there were some things I didn’t really understand towards the end. I had a lot of questions by that point.
It would be interesting to read a sequel to this book that answered some of my questions. There were some minor issues that were unresolved by the end of the book and it would be good to see those explained.
