Editorial Reviews

Review

"There is craftsmanship in Aleman's details; elaborate use of adjectival simile and metaphor ... stimulates ... memorable ... spacetime research well done."
--Where Y'At Magazine, Dionne Charlet, February 2010
--Where Y'At Magazine, February 2010

"Faces in Time was an adventurous, fast paced, time traveling novel...loved the twists and turns...Lewis writes beautifully, his work is filled with great detailed descriptions...a great adventure. I haven't seen anything out like it."
--La Femme Readers, December 12, 2009

Customer Reviews

The first 30% of this book feels just like that.
Sunday S. Smith
The people who rated this so high must have been reading a similarly titled book in a different dimension, because it certainly couldn't have been this one.
Zor
The author spent too many words on minutiae and not enough on plain explanation of the characters and plot.

On a search for a good time travel adventure, I picked up this book based on the Amazon reviews. Unfortunately, I found it completely unreadable, with sentences that defy both grammar and logic, similes that a 4th-grader would find cliched, and a character that comes off as merely pathetic. I wanted to keep reading--I really did, but decided all too soon that there were better things to do with my life. Maybe it gets better after page 30, but somehow I doubt it.

DO NOT BUY THIS BOOK THE 5 STAR REVIEWS ARE FAKE. THIS IS THE WORST BOOK I HAVE EVER READ.

You remember that guy or girl in high school who kept telling everyone they were a writer? Everywhere they went they carried a notebook to jot down ideas, poetry, and deep thoughts. They had these big dreams of how they were going to change the world with their words. But then unfortunately you either got a look at what they were writing or you heard them read it out loud and you quickly realized ... Not everyone is a good writer and some people are the only ones who can stand the sound of their own voice. Certain people are just downright pathetic when it comes to storytelling and should realize that stringing unintelligible words and sentences together does not make you an author. Just like cooking scrambled eggs does not make me a chef. Lewis Aleman is this person I just described ... A pathetic excuse for an author. Is that mean for me to say. No it's not, because he wasted my time and my money when he wrote this horrible book. I'm guessing he must have listened to all of his friends and family tell him how amazing he is. Obviously these friends and family members have never been to a library before. I doubt they could even spell the word BOOK.

Now about this book ... This seriously feels like something I would have written at age 13 or 14 for others at that same age. But sadly even a teenager would view this worthless book as contrived and full of sentences that make you realize that a hamster could have written them with more style and grace. In fact I'll make up a sentence right now that would fit perfectly into this book and into Lewis Aleman's vocabulary.

I like the idea of time travel stories - for which I thank David Tennant and Dr Who - but unlike other reviewers, I found the prose distracting. The metaphors, similes and images felt forced. This felt like an unsuccessful attempt to turn a thriller into literature.

I wanted to like this book. I kept trying to decide whether or not to buy it and finally did. Description is good to give you a feel for the place and the people...but not in such excruciating detail! Needs to be edited. I finally just skipped over all the agonizing minutae. I, also, never really cared much for the two-dimensional characters who lacked anything that would make me care about them. I gave it two stars for a new concept about time travel...even if it, also, included too much unnecessary detail. My advice to the author is to focus on making his characters believable and to drop most of the descriptions of the surroundings. After all, as humans, we only notice half of what's there anyway! ;)

I love time travel stories. I also appreciate well written books. My love for time travel could not overcome the terrible writing. Save the 99 cents and read the preview. If you get through the preview then maybe this book will be ok for you.

I wanted to give this a shot after seeing all the good reviews, so I downloaded the sample chapters for my Kindle. Though I could see that there were ideas here that might be interesting, I found the sentences so ungrammatical and the style so heavy-handed and stilted that the book became unreadable. I don't think I'm a literary snob - I've read everything by Dan Brown and his simple and trashy style would have been a great match for this book. And anyway - you don't need to take my word for it: If the great reviews still tempt you, just download the sample chapters and read them before you decide.

Like others, I bought this book based on some of the good reviews. I should have taken the bad reviews more seriously because they are right on. I knew I may have a problem with this book when I read this on the first page: "The television is a flickering tormentor, basting him in a painful glow like a live bird in an oven." Huh? This is but one of many examples of the bad writing. Also, the explanation of how time travel could be possible given all the paradoxes it would create is extremely weak and contrived. I made it to about page 90 and gave up. I only give it one star because zero is not an option.

Format: Paperback
This second book from Lewis Aleman -- following up on his very original revenge and redemption tale "Cold Streak" -- shares little in common with Mr. Aleman's first book, except for the quality of the writing, the author's ability to write fully imagined characters that you will care deeply about, and Aleman's deft ability to move the plot in directions you could never anticipate. Rather than summarize the plot for you, this review simply notes that this story moves briskly; features numerous well-crafted characters; has equal helpings of humor, suspense and romance; and ties its story lines together brilliantly. If you enjoy a well-told story in which you cannot effortlessly predict the contents of the upcoming chapter, "Faces in Time" will be a treat for you.
