I loved the mystery behind Amy's disappearance and the way it unfolded. The 'rules' of time travelling were logical enough to follow without being too complicated so that the story could take centre stage. I also loved the ending, which resolved almost all of the important bits (I did want to know what happened with Mark though) while still leaving it wide open for a sequel, which is supposedly coming this year and which I will definitely look out for.
If you like a fantastical adventure mystery with some great characters and an excellent story then check it out - I recommend it.
The main gist of the story is that Joseph wants to find out what happened to his sister who disappeared 30 years ago. Everything in the book is to that end, but his adventures leading up to it will certainly hold your interest. I found myself wanting to know what happened to her almost as bad as he did. That's how immersive the story is.
Jones's writing is clear and vivid, with a wonderful sense of place. Extra credit for his food, movie and music references - all of which have a point and are not there as mere window dressing. I also enjoyed his chapter headings and illustrations, rich metaphors that felt like crooked fingers beckoning me towards adventure. Best of all is his humor, which really only gets a chance to blossom once his protagonist decides to be proactive about his life.
I'm very much looking forward to the next installment.
I would very much like it, however, if you would have someone go back and proof it for a next edition. Its easy for contextual errors to be overlooked by an auto spell checker. I am not immune to skipping words or letters, either, but if you or anyone else thinks I'm picky, you cannot imagine how annoyed I get with myself for doing the same things!
About to start another of your novels, and hope it is as fine as this one.
