I applaud the author for this piece, but unfortunately this fails to meet the grade. He combines themes and ideas from Star Trek and Back to the Future along with some originality. The writing ranges from interesting to downright boring. I felt as though I was reading something written by 2 people combined into one. Too little time is spent on what would be interesting parts. The ending completely falls apart. I skimmed the ending in shear frustration.
Need to expand the idea,more time in the past with the events. Get rid of the "Star Trek" terminology.The idea of slingshot around the sun is trite. The ending needs to be far more interesting.It completely falls apart- obviously rushed to complete the tale. A more subtle finish with a better twist. I'd rather a longer book than this. And while you spent a lot of time on this (wordplay here) I am not happy I spent 7.20. That is a price of a real book....

First, apologies to the auther...I'm sure you tried hard and it's admirable that you wrote and published a book.

Where to begin? Ok, the author draws heavily from other popular science fiction, without making an effort to explore any original ideas. There's almost no character development and the author just assumes everyone knows what he's thinking on the parts left out.

The various conversations that take place read as if a 6th grader was trying hard to use direct speech to impress his English teacher.

This is one of the few books I was not able to finish - life is just too short!

I love all things related to time travel, that being said I was a little disappointed with this book.It starts out okay but quickly goes down hill. Halfway through the book it felt like it ran out of ideas and became a race to get to the end of the book.
The dialog seems a little forced and slightly old fashioned. It reminded me of Sci-fi books written it the 1960s.
The action scenes are the same formula over and over again. Not very exciting or unexpected, just flat. To me it seemed to just rushed.

I have just finished 2 novels by Connie Willis on Time travel-Doomsday and a story on the Blitz on London-that were simply fabulous and had won awards-
I thought it would be fun to try another time travel story.
This story is cute but seems written for a child-maybe it was for an elementary school level reader.
Just silly and not worth the effort.Glad it did not cost more.

Some of the most famous events in American and world history set the stage in this great sci-fi time travel adventure. It catches your attention from the start and never lets go until you reach the end. The characters are well rounded and well written. The historical events are well researched and written to where it's plausible
