I’ve always been a fan of Ben Elton’s writing but I seem to have lost track of it in the last couple of years. I saw this by accident when looking for Christmas presents for others and added it to my wish list. From the jacket it appears that I have missed one of his books being released so I need to get myself a copy of that now.
This book hooked me in and I didn’t want to stop reading. The story of a time traveller, trying to alter the course of history by changing the worst thing that happened is interesting.
How could you know if you were really making things better or not by altering the truth?
That is exactly what the book explores. There are twists and turns which keep you hooked. The characters are likeable and you become attached to their story.
It does make you think about whether or not time travel would be a good thing and what you would do if you were faced with similar choices. Maybe by the end you’ll be challenging your own earlier thoughts on the matter.
If you like a good, well written story with lots of drama then I think you will enjoy this.
