Altogether enjoyable, with sweet romance blended in, and plenty to think about. A much-needed shot of positivity!
The romance was sweet and the characters likable girl/boy next door types. The romance really added to the drama: how would this seeming time travel love ever be resolved happily? Racheal is in love with Adam inside the life and body of a guy in the future called Cooper, but Adam does not recognise Cooper’s family. As I got into the story, I was at a loss to see how the story could possibly have a happy ending. Without giving the ending away, let me say that I was both surprised and totally satisfied by it. It was excellent, and one I would never have guessed! I found this to be an entertaining and enjoyable read. And this is from someone who does not normally like time travel fiction!
Future-set stories are interesting ways of
The whole time travel thing has never quite satisfied my rational side. If you physically travel back/forward in time and do things there, it would alter the future/past. Even trying to think about how that would work makes my head spin. And ones where somebody wakes up and it was all a dream do not satisfy me either. They make me feel cheated. But not this book. This author found a solution that made sense and really did satisfy me.
The idea that the world was almost wiped out by a virus of some sort has been done before, but I felt Bailey put some nice little twists on the whole idea.
All in all this is a fast, refreshing read with some thought-provoking ideas. I did particularly like the uniquely Australian perspective the author brought to the story. Give this one a try. I liked it.
