Matt Hogan's first published work is a marvel in it's scope, complexity, and vision. Hogan has created a dystopian future that is entirely believable and filled with nuances that belie his immaculate research. The scientific concepts and engineering of the imaginary devices are all based on cutting edge theory and conjecture. Hogan marries this scientific realism with in-depth understanding of the financial underpinnings of modern society, sprinkled in with a dose of his medical knowledge.
The story is original, thought provoking, and at times tense with action. His prose is capable of being lyrical and poetic and at other times bitingly sarcastic. There is a high degree of craftmanship in evidence throughout the novel.
My chief criticism revolves around character development. The main character, Sam Webb, undergoes transformations throughout the story, but we don't get the complete picture on who he is and what truly drives these changes. There are brief glimpses, but I felt a deeper look was warranted to help understand the impetus of actions and behavior. Secondary characters receive very little development leaving some feeling hollow and unnecessary. I feel there was a balance being struck that I would have rather shifted more towards character driven work than exposition. I believe it would have helped me in drawing out my own answers to the open ended closure.
Overall, I enjoyed this book very much. I am amazed at the ambitious undertaking and the successful execution in delivering this vision. I can't wait to read more works from Matt Hogan as he continues to refine his amazing talents.
Sam and his friend, Marcus’s mission become finding a way to stop Johnson by using his weapon against him. However, there is a price to pay for playing with destiny and what’s left in the past, which catches up with everyone involved in the book, especially Sam.
I found the storyline to be very unique. Although I have read many time travel novels, this one still stood out for me. The character development was superb. The literature and lyrical style of writing was easy to understand, particularly for a complex book like this one. The descriptive writing also created the ability for me to feel like I was on the journey with the characters.
I believe the author has done much research on the book as I did not find any loopholes or questionable events tied up to the story. The story is long and the pace is steady enough keeping you intrigued along the way.
I recommend this book to any one that enjoys reading books on time travel and is a sci-fi fan.
Mr. November offers some interesting ideas for contemplation – what if one company were able to travel through time, and invest with knowledge of the greatest booms and busts of the future? With a plot underlaid by time-travel paradoxes and a concept of how each of those small changes to the past could impact the future, the story shows the care that went into the plotting. I did feel that the plot was let down to a degree by some of the technical aspects of the writing, which occasionally side-tracked me from the read, but overall this book was definitely worth-while, with some nice inter-personal dynamics.
I received a copy of this book at no cost. Opinions are my own.
