“Well, I requested to review this book via Netgalley as I have heard so many people talking about it. I have to be honest and say that I have very mixed feelings, hence the 3 star rating. While I like the premise of the story, I found it a little hard to get into in the beginning. The book is shorter, only 240 pages, so it is a quick read if you want something that you will get through quickly. I cannot really comment as to format and editing, something I would normally comment on, as this was an uncorrected advanced reader's proof, so there is no guarantee that what I saw is what you will see.
The concept of the history of time was intriguing, and I found that I could easily relate with Sarah Lemon, having see quite a bit of myself in the character. I found the characters mostly believable, although Victor seemed a little...off. I really do not know how to quantify that, but something about the character bothered me.
The story is well written, of that I am sure. If you like looking at the history of things (whether real or fictional), this book is entertaining and intriguing and it does make you think about how you have lived your life and how you should be living.
The point of view/plotline were slightly disjointed, and this is probably why I had trouble with it. Admittedly, I have ADHD, and sometimes story lines that jump back and forth are difficult for me to follow along with, and that could be a big part of why this book just did not seem to grab me like I hoped it would.
If you are intrigued by the cover or the description, I would give it a shot. It was an interesting read, just was not my thing.”
