Overview

They have a dangerous past. They just haven't lived it yet.

I have enjoyed time travel as a topic for science fiction since I read "A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur's Court" sometime in my pre-teens. It is a rough genre to enjoy, because there are some really awful books and movies out there so sometimes you just need to lower your expectations and hope for a good story. That was not something I had to worry about with "In Times Like These". The main characters are interesting and accessible because they don't have any uncommon skills or abilities at the beginning of the story. They aren't incredibly rich, immortal, smart, unusually skilled or anything else. They are pretty normal people, and very fallible. The science fiction aspects are solid and the technology behind travelling through time is applied consistently. A few times I thought the author had overlooked something, but it was his characters who had not thought a situation through enough, then had to figure out what they had done wrong. The story itself is more than engaging and interesting and the book is definitely worth a read. The absolute worst part of it is that the second book is not available yet.

This is an excellent book. I stayed up too late every night reading it. Could not wait to see what happened next. Likable characters with depth and charm. The science was over my head, but very believable. Can't wait til B & N gets the second book.

I think the reviewers that didn't like it were like me in that I get lost in the techno babble. If you skim through it carefully and just pick out the important pieces, it's an entertaining story.

Fairly good story. Did not "grab me," but I stuck through to the end.

With a few exceptions, time travel books are cheesy at best. This book falls into the few that are enjoyable and believable. Some of the science/technology stuff was a bit much. But to be fair, science and technology is not my area of enjoyment. If I had to buy the book, I would not have picked it. Thankfully my lack of funds got me reading this free book and I will now continue to read this series!

I'm very easily annoyed by cheesy cliches, so that I almost ditched the book on the very first chapter when it's just rambling about baseball (in fact I skimmed the entire chapter as quickly as possible and would take 1/2 star from the rating) but anyway, once past that, the book quickly had my undivided attention. Surely it's a little bit annoying the recklessness of the main characters, but it doesn't not demote the story. It's well written will entertain all "time travelers" fans out there.

A very good story. I kinda got lost in some of the science, but this may be partly my fault because I read very short sections at a time . . . contributing to the problem of forgetting some details. An excellent ending leading to a natural continuation to another book.

I like time travel stories and plots...but, this particular book was slow to start, then zooms you to 100mph and provides WAY to much science-babble and superfluous information to keep much of anything straight. Lots of "lucky coincidences" in story. After first few pages worth of the science-babble i just skipped most all those parts for remainder of the book. Did not feel i missed out on anything truly relevant to story overall. Did enjoy the character's various personality developments during the read though. Just an "ok"read for me, plus it was free.

This was a great story. It kept me reading because I just had to know if they made it back!

I enjoyed it up to a point but it just drug on and I finally had to quit at page 255. I like to finish a book when I start it but it got boring. Good first book but don,t drag it out.
