Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

*Starred Review* Caleb has only glimmers of memory of the time before he was adopted by Uncle, who trained him and others his age in a Faginesque manner updated by 200 years. It’s 2061, and the young teens are sent on missions to various times to grab specific items that Uncle then sells to collectors: the first Frisbee, from 1871; a twentieth-century umbrella once owned by Winston Churchill; an ancient Chinese vase on display in 1967 Montreal. After Caleb witnesses a small boy being snatched, he becomes determined to rescue and return him to his parents. To do so, he must wage a battle of brains as well as skill and fortitude against Uncle and his warrior philosophy; cope with his not-quite-understood feelings for his girl partner, Abbie; and work out deals with Phoebe, the computer that presents itself as a middle-aged (and often cranky) woman. Each place and period—including the future, in which New York has been renamed New Beijing to honor “the Great Friendship” of the world’s former superpowers—are vividly described, while emotions, too, come to life as Caleb works to understand the meanings behind what he feels. Ungar’s debut novel offers a complex and compelling story that trusts imaginative readers to consider the various roles that wits, brawn, and technology can play in a time-travel adventure. Grades 6-9. --Francisca Goldsmith

Review

"A complex and compelling story that trusts imaginative readers to consider the various roles that wits, brawn, and technology can play in a time-travel adventure." —Booklist starred review


"[An] exciting first novel . . . Ungar keeps his tale moving with frequent jumps into the past.” —Publishers Weekly


"Time Snatchers delivers on the allure of a good era-jumping narrative. In addition to cool gadgets, readers get a glimpse of real historical events, such as the invention of photography and the Frisbee.” Quill & Quire

My son LOVED this book and is desperately hoping for a sequel or a series! The technical and scientific elements were exciting and believable. The plot is engaging. My son is 12 and reads at least 2 novels a week, this one caused him to follow me around the house so he could tell me about it! Keep writing Mr. Ungar!!

the first thing that really drew me to this book was the male narrative. after reading loads of books about downtrodden girls, arrogant girls, prissy girls, gritty girls, girls who learned better and girls with outlandish powers, a book about a boy was refreshing. I liked that the author made Caleb (the protagonist) such a solid and sympathetic character, without detracting from the characters of the people around him. his sense of humor got me laughing, the plot wasn't forced and the dilemmas he faced were serious and had me on the edge of my seat wondering which way he would choose. the ending had a conclusion, but there is enough left to be said to hope for a sequel (Time Trapped, which I read directly afterwards and is even better than its predecessor).
there are a lot of elements in Time Snatchers that I've never seen before, and the perspective from the future is interesting in a book about time travel into the past. the entire idea of the story is fun, and the plot takes the momentum and runs with it. there isn't a flat or awkward moment, and it flows smoothly from beginning to end. the hero is noble, another thing not often found in YA books and something I personally look for in all novels. all in all, an original and entertaining read that stays with you long after you've put down the book.
