As each incident was explained even more shocking secrets were unraveled. The surprises were never-ending. As soon as one problem was resolved an even more complex issue came up. There was never a boring moment!
One of the many things great about the story was witnessing the extent of both Grizz and Grunt’s obsession for one woman. There were times where I questioned what was it about Kit that elevated her above the rest and since “Out Of Time” was written in multiple points of view we are able to understand both sides. I certainly appreciated how the author provided us the opportunity to peek into both Grizz and Grunt’s thoughts.
“Ginny, I didn’t know who I was in this world. Someone’s brother, someone’s son, a criminal, a student, someone evil, or someone kind. But when you came into my life, I knew who I wanted to be.”
If you asked me what was the best thing about the book … I would have to say that it was the love and devotion that each of these complex characters had for one another. Just as soon as you’re convinced that one deserves the girl more, the other manages to outdo the other. Each of the men fighting for Kit’s affection was in their own right terrific and I can’t tell you how torn I felt about who she should be with.
I do have to say that at first, I had a difficulty keeping up with the timelines but as soon as I got used to the concept everything began playing out like a movie. I then became impressed on how the author was able to effortlessly weave such an intricate story. A downside that readers may find is that the story is quite lengthy but for me I never wanted it to end. Other than that I thought it was perfect.
It has been a while since I’ve found a book depicting a love so deep where there wasn’t a question if each couple were soulmates yet “Out Of Time” manages to do this repeatedly and flawlessly.
If you are looking for an exceptional, thought-provoking and gritty love story that this one is a fantastic pick for you.
As I was nearing the end of this book I started to think what on earth I was going to write for my review. I have no words that could possibly express how much this book (and the first book) blew me away. I am loving this series so far but even that doesn't explain how mesmirised I am after finishing Out Of Time.
The twist and turns plus all the revelations that came out in the second half of this book. Wow, just wow. I might need to lay down for a while to digest what I have just finished reading.
I cannot get my head around Beth Flynn's amazing mind that could possibly think of all these twists and create this masterpiece. And on top of all that she made me fall in love with Grizz. WTH Beth!! I loved Tommy / Grunt from the beginning and who couldn't love and cheer on Kit / Ginny.
To be honest I had a feeling about Grizz so wasn't overally surprised. I mean come on, he's Grizz lol. Nor about what he found on his road trip.
Makes reading book 3 very exciting and I foresee another couple of nights with bearly any sleep. Oh well.... ;-)
I do recommend this series, but if you're like me you need to understand that this second book might not grab you by the throat the way the first book did. And that's okay. I still need the rest of the story. The answers to the remaining questions. And I will be diving right in to the next book as soon I finish this review.
This series has been keeping me on my toes in that the characters are moving targets. Who is friend vs. foe changes from book to book, even chapter to chapter. And I'm here for it.
Put this one on your list for a solid, twisty MC read!
Top international reviews
I'd definitely recommend Beth Flyns work & hope she continues to write, and now I look forward to reading the third & final book in this trilogy - which makes me excited but also sad coz il be gutted when Iv finished it....! Keep writing , Beth, please, long stand alone thrillers would also be amazing by this writer too, her talent is up there with the best of them.
For such a reasonable price ,these are a very cheap trilogy too, she doesn't sting you like some when you get to book 3 or4 for example after reading the first ones cheaply, which is another thing I admire about her.
I truly hope she does continue to write- I love it when you find an author you relate to immediately & I have & would love to read all future works by Beth.
Make sure you read these in order , you really do need to, this trilogy are thrilling, deep plot-wise, emotion-tugging, cracking good reads! Fellow readers Enjoy!
Jeez, Louise. This book was jam packed full of twists and surprises, right down to the very last sentence. It had answers to things I didn’t even question in Nine Minutes, but now I’m so glad to know these new bits of information. It just all added so much more to the story as a whole, as if it wasn’t exciting and addictive enough on its own!
And again, I cried, so, so much. It was absolutely worth all the pain. I cried through so many different emotions, and I honestly don’t think I’ll ever get over this series and the characters. Especially Grizz… Team Grizz for life!!!! It was hard knowing Ginny was now with Tommy, all while I was head over heels in love with Grizz, but that didn’t take anything away from the story at all. In fact I think it added to it.
The Nine Minutes series is one of the grittiest, most honest and refreshing reads I’ve ever encountered. It cuts right to the core of your very being and imbeds itself so deep in your soul, it ensures you’ll never forget it. I now painstakingly await the release of A Gift Of Time, the third and final book in the series which became a fast favourite.
I feel like this book is totally to make the reader fall in love with Tommy aka Grunt - which I did not at all. In fact I think he's a bit of a psycho now! (Love Grizz)
I did like some of the twists and the ending made me squeal with delight in what I hope it means but I did feel this whole book could have been squashed down into the first and maybe last book too.
Anyway I'm about to start book three as I HAVE to know... so clearly the author has done something right.
I do want to write my thoughts though and Amazon won't let me do it unless I rate the book.
I've finished Out of Time last night. The end left me staring at my kindle for I don’t know how long with a stupid face. And so I kept staring at my kindle in hopes that it would make me figure out all conflicted feelings I was left with.
I've learnt from my past experiences with book hangovers that the best thing to do is wait, give my thoughts some time, sleep over it. In short: hold my horses.
That being said, I have been mulling this for over a day now and nothing, NADA, ZERO, ZILCH.
I will leave this as one of my No Rate books.
Firstly, I need to say that I was loving it. 5 Stars loving it. Until I reached 80%.
The last 20% of the story were full of disappointing events.
How to rate a book that kept you on a high for so long and gave you a disappointing end?
No, definitely no rate.
Here are my issues:
Everything started with a twist. Beth Flynn pulled from her magic author’s hat of twists, that absurd fecking list with the world’s destiny. Why couldn't it be just a bag full of money or the plates to make counterfeit money? Or even real plates of money?
The dialogue between Tommy and Ginny in the last 20 % when they were trying to set the record straight sounded a bit like 2 teenagers. “Am I your soul mate?”, “When did you realise you loved me?” and so on...
The coincidences: Tommy meeting Ginny when he was only 8 and being bullied at school.
Grizz walking in a Bar in the middle of nowhere to find Jodi.
Regardless of all my conflicted feelings I have to confess I enjoyed Out of Time way more than Nine Minutes. It was an unexpected surprise considering I didn't have much fun when reading #1 and I can't wait to see what is coming up next!
What can I say? I had my questions answered and then some,.. My head has been completely smashed in with this book, I don't know what's real and what's a lie anymore. One thing I do know is that I am and always will be Team Grizz. There's something about Grunt/Tommy that I don't trust and My trust wasn't earned during this book. I love Ginny, she's been played her whole life, never having the chance to be herself and make her own decisions.
I can't wait for book three. I need the new questions answered soon!
Excellent writing, which I don't regret reading and I even understand why it had to be done in third person, it would have been all over the place otherwise, there was just too much going on, and too many stories to tell.
Well done Beth on another fantastic read! 5+ stars!
Unlike Nine Minutes, where the story is told from Ginny's point of view, this story is told from a third party perspective, and we get to see glimpses of Grizz's childhood, and also Grunt's. We learn what was going on in their heads, and also see from other characters pov too. It does get overwhelming, there is A LOT going on, and there was a lot of liberties (for want of a better word) plot wise, but I was mesmerised by it all. I wanted the answers as much as Ginny did, I was shocked at how much she had been lied to in her life by those who loved her. If she couldn't trust them, then who could she trust? My head is spinning now. I went on a 2 day bender with Kit & Grizz, and now I have a massive hangover. I can't wait for book 3, to see how this story ends.
I loved Grizz in the first book, and I haven't changed my mind.
That man owns me.
This book gives you a lot of background history, well as much as you can come to expect from a man like Grizz. Talk about a closed book.
I loved it so much, I feel for all the characters. What a predicament they find themselves in.
Lives full of deciept and lies. It's really hard to know who to trust. I really like Grunt, but there is just something about him for me, what I can't put my finger on.. maybe I'm just biased because I'm all for Grizz.
Who knows, but anyway this book it utterly gripping, I found myself with my mouth gaping open at some parts. It's a book to really keep you guessing.
I can well believe some of the things in this book, actually go on in real life.
I thought it was really well written, I loved Nine Minutes and this book is just as good if not better than the first.
I can not wait for the next book, that ending has my head spinning. It leaves the burning question....What the Hell is going to happen now?? Eeeeeek!!!!
Until the last chapter where Grunt showed some of his true colours.
That last chapter turned the whole story on its head. Was Grunt in fact the bad guy?
Honestly I wasn’t sure I wanted to delve into Grunt being the bad guy, I thought I might be content with burying my head in the sand and saying OK well that’d not what I wanted but it’s OK.
My book nerd friends told me I needed to read Out Of Time and I needed to read it NOW!
I’m so glad I read it because it was OUTSTANDING!!!
Beth Flynn has so many twists and turns I’m amazed she could keep track.
This book answers loads of questions and generally fills the blanks!
I’m completely #TeamGrizz now so I’m sorry to say Grunt pack your s*** dude Grizz is back you are no longer needed!
I’ve no idea what’s gonna happen next but I can’t wait to find out!
Out of Time gets 5 stars from me.
I thought the first book was awesome, this just eclipsed it, SERIOUSLY JAW DROPPING, the way its told, from all angles keeps you guessing all the time,
how do you eclipse this one Beth Flynn, if after all of this, these two do not end up together I WILL BE TOTALLY DESTROYED,
for them both to have gone through so much not to have their happy ending just doesn't bare thinking about and yes I like Tommy aka grunt, but it will always be kit and grizz for, its a total mind trip, now the added extra of a sister, didn't want that if I am totally honest, but she's there will have to deal with that
the best friend how ever needs to be dealt with, the shocks just kept coming and coming not letting up, to end on such a cliff hanger and have to wait till next year doesn't sit well with me, I truly hate cliff hanger books, but as the books were so well written and I loved them all will wait patiently for the next
Deep, thought provoking, full of twists and turns so many unexpected events.
I have to admit its a while since I read the first book so when the plot takes you back in time and talking about other characters I was searching my memory with events and things, made me wish I had read them together. so theres a tip because of the depth read back to back.
Its a book in a class of its own the events and everything that takes place can't be compared to anything else I've read.
looking forward to the next book when its released with slight dread its one of those books were you feel you need to shout "I'm going in wish me luck" and I know with Beth Flynn the next book will be no different.
The book is a brilliant follow on and you can tell the author hasn't rushed it just to get a good sell like some trilogy's or follow on books. All the characters are diverse and have their own agenda and although this book leaves you with lots of questions answered it also leaves you wanting more but not in an infuriating way. The ending is awesome bring on 2016 for the next addition.
So, three stars because I genuinely couldn't put it down but also found myself more than a little annoyed with the change of tone and the essentially unnecessary cliff hanger.
In this book we found out so many unanswered questions!
We also get to hear more about Grizz and his past. As well as Tommy's and Ginnys. (LOVED reading about that)
This book also ended on a cliff hanger!
I'm VERY GRATEFUL that book 3 'A Gift Of Time' is out in 3 days time!!
I just love this series!
I would recommend it to anyone who loves a good dark, messed up book!
