There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
Great pace and good inclusion of many intriguing details into a story line more about human nature than the science which is the mark of an exceptional story and why I gave it 5 stars. I recommend this novel and will add this author to my "like" list :)
It should be read as a light hearted and exiting novella not to be taken too seriously.

I persevered though as I hate to leave a book unfinished.
Sadly the 2 dimensional protagonists and mind boggling theme revealed about halfway through, played havoc with my linear thinking so I gave up at 61%.
However what I did read provided more enjoyment than a 1950's
bus time table or the instructions on the back of a packet of
corn plasters, but only just.
A million copies sold!
As the story progressed, the writing method began to make sense as you gain the perspective of each of the characters and rapidly assimilate the different viewpoints into a complete overview of the emerging situation. The dilemmas faced by each character can be assessed based on the information they possess without being diluted by other viewpoints.
An excellent view of how positive (or negative) events in the present could turn into negative (or positive) results in the future.
Congratulations to the author as this must have been a nightmare to write.
My biggest annoyance was that niether Nick or Nicholas seemed to realise there would be a conflict when they got to Harper. Dumb or dumber.
