I can imagine a physicist reading "The Great Paradox and the Innies and Outies of Time Management" and giggling with glee. I can also see Doctor Who fans really enjoying it. And everyone else too!
The story is about an ordinary girl. She is not famous, or rich, or successful. She is just plain normal. Goes to work, comes home, goes grocery shopping at a bodega. Then she comes home to find... herself, already there. And then the universe starts to spin out of control.
What happens when an ordinary, plain, normal girl becomes the center of everything? Read "The Great Paradox and the Innies and Outies of Time Management" to find out.
Isa-Lee Wolf is going to be huge in character driven, quirky sci-fi. This is only her second book. Get in while she is still up-and-coming, so you can say "I read her before she became famous!"
(And a small side note: There were no typos, no transcription errors that plague other ebooks. It was perfect.)
I'd have given it five stars, but the author needs to do some proofreading and be more careful about attribution, since it was sometimes hard to follow who was saying what (and when your characters are meeting themselves, that's hard enough to keep track of). But it was worth the minor struggle to read this fine story.
Time travel is a staple of science fiction, and this book is not about it. No, this book is about time management. I don't mean flow-charts and schedules. In this book our heroine Amber works for the government, helping to manage time itself, making sure that the timeline is kept running in a mostly forwards direction. To achieve this, bits of time are snipped out (outies), inserted (innies) or just amended (midlys). This procedure can go wrong, of course, and timelines can get screwed up, and crossed over, and you can imagine things can get very confusing. And so they do.
This is not a book for reading with your brain switched off: it takes concentration to follow the twists and turns of Amber's various lives, but it is well worth the effort. If you do make the effort, you will find yourself swept along in a fast paced, fun, funny story full of snappy dialogue, racing through a well-constructed plot in a strangely believable world. There's even, dare we say it, a little bit of a moral in there.
And now I've only got one more book of Isa-Lee's to read. I might have to stretch that one out a bit.
