My rating: 4 of 5 starsThe plot was interesting and it pulled me in most of the time. But Gavin’s plight is worthy of a Hollywood movie much like Andrew Garfield in the new Spiderman movies. His desire for family and some excitement, are answered but at a price. He learns the truth about himself and it isn’t always the best thing.
If you look at a picture, you are able to travel back to the time when it was taken. Although this part is not real it did add a new level of immersion into the story. Characterisation was realistic and I liked the overall actions of the main characters.
The setting of the story was average. Most times as the characters travel back in time, their actions overshadowed the setting. The book is addicting and the story is an amazing start to the series but it’s not perfect and could use another round of editing.
