Where to begin? Ok, the author draws heavily from other popular science fiction, without making an effort to explore any original ideas. There's almost no character development and the author just assumes everyone knows what he's thinking on the parts left out.
The various conversations that take place read as if a 6th grader was trying hard to use direct speech to impress his English teacher.
This is one of the few books I was not able to finish - life is just too short!
Need to expand the idea,more time in the past with the events. Get rid of the "Star Trek" terminology.The idea of slingshot around the sun is trite. The ending needs to be far more interesting.It completely falls apart- obviously rushed to complete the tale. A more subtle finish with a better twist. I'd rather a longer book than this. And while you spent a lot of time on this (wordplay here) I am not happy I spent 7.20. That is a price of a real book....
The dialog seems a little forced and slightly old fashioned. It reminded me of Sci-fi books written it the 1960s.
The action scenes are the same formula over and over again. Not very exciting or unexpected, just flat. To me it seemed to just rushed.
I thought it would be fun to try another time travel story.
This story is cute but seems written for a child-maybe it was for an elementary school level reader.
Just silly and not worth the effort.Glad it did not cost more.
