Only worth your time if you are really into time travel.

This one was not my cup of tea and I felt it had some weaknesses as a story. If you really get into time travel the weaknesses can perhaps be overlooked. Interesting concepts....

    Boring!

    Starts slow and just gets slower. I wanted to read a quick story, but this was so boring, I didn't bother finishing because I really didn't care what happened next.

    Dreadful

    A middle school child could write a better short story than this disjointed, over the top failure.

    Awful

    Too short, too confusing, never knew who was supposed to be speaking, no plausability whatsoever, dull. After forcing myself through the 14 page gobbledegoop mishmash of unpunctuated drivil, I couldn't find the courage to attempt the book preview. No thanks, I'll pass

    Good idea bad ending

    I liked the idea of time travel and changing the known outcomes, alternate universes with all possibilities. But the end was weak and not well thought out. Short 15 Nook pages mean you don't waste too much time.
