  • What a weird story involving time travel

    Two parts time travel mumbo-jumbo, 1 part lesbian love story, and 2 parts utter nonsense. I think because the book is divided into 62 very brief chapters, it doesn't allow the reader to really connect with any one character. By the end of the story, I had already stopped caring the what, who, how and why, period.

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • Original and well executed

    It moves along at a fairly good pace and keeps things interesting. The book has a predominately female cast, including most of the love interests, and in various places through the text the assumptions are all female - which stood out, I suppose, because usually such assumptions (where stated) tend to be male. None of that detracted from the story at all, but it was noticeably unusual compared to most other Sci-Fi I've read. I enjoyed this very much.

  • Women out of time

    I really enjoyed this book's feminist ethos. Female scientists discovered time travel and maintained control of the process. However, the book never really explained the use of time travel. In the real world the process would have been grabbed by the military industrial complex and used to consolidate power. Rival nations would have swiftly replicated the technology resulting in wars faught out of time. By concentrating on the personal stories of time travellers, the psychology as indicated in the title, Kate Mascarenhas neatly avided writng a political thriller and created a touching story where human emotion remains paramount.

  • Unusual

    Unusual. Chapters were named with a person's name. Unfortunately I couldn't follow the story this way often wondering who that character was in the story.

  • Time Travel

    Sadly one of those books where I cared very little for any of the characters and really didn't care what happened in the end.
