I felt like I didn't start reading from the beginning of the book. It felt like it was farther in the book because it was like I was supposed to be in the know about what was going on and I totally wasn't. I didn't know who this person was or when this person was. I read the whole book and I'm still confused. With the way it ended I wouldn't be surprised if it is just the first book in a series since I can't seem to escape them. Maybe I should get a shirt that says Save The Stand Alones. It is nice to read them since I'm up to my eyeballs in series.
Around page six I figured out that the book was about time travel. When I read a description for a book it flies out of my head pretty quick. I have fishbowl brain. One problem was that you never knew where or when you were. The chapters were titled but you never saw a year although sometimes it might be mentioned especially if they were in the 21st century. By the time the 24th century arrives someone has discovered how to travel back in time and they do it quite often. Going to a mall back in the 21st century is like someone now going to Disneyland. Damn it has been such a long time since I've gone there and I shudder to think about how much the fare went up. The people of the future play different roles and one of those people is Spens. This book was so confusing that I'm not sure if it was Spens that was at the start of the book in the future or not.
This book was all over the place. I'm not even totally sure what was going on. Something major happens in the 21st century. I'm not sure if Spens was the person at the start of the book because names weren't used. I wish I could time travel but I have to say this wasn't the easiest read for me even though it was easy to read. Does that make sense? It was kind of like reading in a foreign language while only understanding a small part of it. Traveling to the past for a vacation. Meeting people at different times and ages. Nothing was shown of the present in this book since it all seemed to take place in the past. Maybe I'm just too dumb for this book after all most acronyms just go over my head. It is an interesting concept but it just didn't work for me because it just seemed too scattered and all over the place.
