"In Scharlette, just the right amount of absurdity mixes with serious exploration of crazy scientific concepts. And the dialogue, description, scene-setting . . . it's all funny. It blew me away. Just go read it for yourself." ★★★★★ Two Doctors Media Collaborative--This text refers to the paperback edition.

Scharlette's a bit of an everywoman - she's fully relatable. Cheap wine, job she hates, expensive rent payments, and having absolutely no impact on the world whatsoever. She's a little untidy, a little overweight, doesn't take care of herself, lacks motivation and... could really, at times, be me. (Except for the difficult-to-pronounce name, of course.)
The premise is excellent - that there are time-travelling agents in the future, protecting future events by protecting the past. Very TimeCop, quite Terminator - we all understand this one. However, no agents yet have a female time-ship called Gordon! Gordon's got to be my favourite character - with her own foibles, prejudices and sense of morals, she's as fleshed as any biped.
Bowring is a comedian, and comedy gold is evident in spades. Shrugging at scifi that takes itself too seriously, Bowring brings a wonderful sense of the realistically absurd to this novel. It flows like the Nile, runs rampant over realism, thumbs its nose at convention, and stomps on reality. This novel is a romp in every sense, and Scharlette discovers that not mattering can be the best thing ever.
I'm hoping this becomes a series. I could read more of these.
But heh, actually not a 'biggie' and overall a really good book. I look forward to more.
There's no po-faced reverence or reams or heavy techobabble here, but a funny, loving rollercoaster for anyone who's partial to a bit of sci-fi.
Scharlette is one of the most genuinely fun yarns I've ready in ages - a proper joy.
