  • Time travellers in our midst....intriguing!

    The basic concept is intriguing but the book lacked detail of why and how the travellers arrived. It doesn't convey why the leaders set up their new society and rules as they did. The end of the book felt like there should have been another chapter to tie up the characters and issues. Perhaps a sequel is coming which clarifies these things.

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • Can Teens Save Humanity?

    This book was released in 2014 - interesting to actually read it in 2022, with the past couple of years of pandemic living under our belts. Wouldn't it be lovely to be able to time travel back to 2019, or earlier, to find out what really happened and better yet, stop it from happening? That's the premise of this book - people from 80 years in the future have found a way to travel back in time to stop a mosquito-borne plague from decimating the population. Can they? Should they? And should it fall into the laps of a couple of 17-year-olds to ultimately determine the success of such a plan? Being a YA novel, that's just what happens here. Typical of people their age, they make some good decisions, some epically bad ones, and they have a hard time staying on task thanks to their hormones. But the adults around them make some pretty heinous decisions as well, so it's hard to lay all the blame on the kids. Overall I didn't love or hate this one (I see some pretty vicious reviews here) - time travel is notoriously difficult to write, and difficult to wrap one's mind around when reading about it, so I usually just try to suspend my disbelief and pretend it all makes sense. Wasn't any easier or harder to do that with this book - but the YA factor sometimes was a distraction for me - I kept wanting to yell at them to focus - then again that's probably just the geezer in me. I expect the YA crowd would love this one. Thanks to Netgalley and Random House for providing a copy for an unbiased review.

    Thanks for your feedback!
