The characters are so believable and it is so easy to "live" through each one. I highly recommend this to everyone! It is a book that could easily be read several times over!
As I said, I really enjoyed the movie, so this book was ok. There was just something missing.
In this book we have a character with a very messed-up life. Not only is his family dysfunctional (dad is in the nut house), but he has blackouts and does very disturbing things.
The book takes a long time to get started by filling in tons of background history. Eventually we get to the point where our character learns he can effect things in the past. Usually to disastrous effects. He keeps trying to correct things but they keep getting worse.
So, will he be able to make things better? Unfortunately two things stand in his way. One is that "time travel" is bad for his brain. The other is that people think he is crazy and want to lock him up.
So we wind up with a series of bad lives that we stop caring about after a while. We also learn a bit about his talent (although not enough). Finally we get a cute, romantic-comedy-style ending.
But my big question is if he had total blackouts, how was he able to write about the events in his journals? We don't know how much of the events he managed to transcribe, but at least with the video camera incident we do see that he wrote about things he didn't remember and then didn't remember he wrote about them. Too weak for me.
This is a long book for a novelization of a movie aimed at this audience and it just doesn't work or interest. I am sure it could work for readers who don't care about the details (sort of like viewers who made Armageddon successful).Read more ›
