    I Also Recommend:

    I am a sixth grade student in Glendale, AZ I highly Recommended this book I thought it was really good.

    The book of time By: Guillaume prevost Sam Faulkner is the main character, he is 11 years old, and he lives with his Grandmother. His grandmother seventy-eight years old. An older kid, who is about 12 years old, is bulling Sam. Sam is on a gymnastic team. Sam's dad owns a bookstore, Sam goes to see his dad at work, and that's when he find out his dad is missing. Throughout this whole book Sam is trying to find his dad. Sam enters into time When he hits on this wall because his is angry because he cant find his dad and zip there He goes into time travel. Sam travels to many different places, like Spain and the Civil War, the main place is Egypt and while he does this he is changing our future. Sam's life Is put in many crises in this part of the story. Sam is lucky he is still alive. The main setting in this book is Egypt, but he travels all over the place. The theme is Sam is trying to save his dad when he is in time but he gets teleported Home then he finds out his dad is in time. So he goes back to save him. Sam is finding clues form his dad and that's how he finds him then he takes him back to present time. I really like this book because he is in various places and time like the war and Egypt And all over the world. I really like Egypt because all of the history that happened there. All because our class is studying Egypt so I know a lot about it. I connected to this book; I think it would be cool to travel through time. I also connected to this book some because it had some times when I was little that I wondered were my dad was. Related books are: Gate of day (the book of time 2): by Guillaume Prevost The circle of gold (the book of time 3): by Guillaume Prevost

    Interesting Take on Time Travel

    I got an Advanced Reader's Copy through my writing group a few months back and finally got to read it this week. The overall story idea and writing is very good. I have a few problems with the author's 'rules' for time traveling (a cell phone that travels with Sam and though it doesn't work for making calls, still keeps the current 'real world' time which moves at a different pace than the time Sam is in) it is a good book for middle grade kids who may not question it. The characters are well thought out and presented. There are many references to current trends (Harry Potter, Tony Hawk, etc) which a young reader today will appreciate but might make the book sound too dated a few years from now. My only real 'complaint' about the book is the ending. It is a doozie of a cliff-hanger... obviously there will be at least one more book on the way. The story was not wrapped up well enough for the end of a novel. It feels more like I was forced to stop reading in the middle of a longer book. Even with my dislike of the ending, it is a very good book and I look forward to reading the next one to see what happens. I recommend this book for boys and girls ages 9 to 12, or anyone (like me!) who enjoys middle grade adventure and fantasy stories.
