    Good for an hour or so

    This is was a good first effort. I think the writer should have expanded on the time travel ideas and the characters themselves. It's like a long short story, so this is good for those of you who only want something to read for a short time. I think one of these days, Mr. Ball should probably go back and rewrite this, it has the potential to be a good and thick novel.

    Out of Time

    I thought this was a cool novel, and I'm looking forward to reading the authors' next work. It has time travel as the main theme, but, the lesson is that you should never, ever try to change history, it might just backfire on you.

    Interesting

    I thought it was interesting how the author linked together various times in American history, like going to visit the moon landing in 1969 without doing anything, or at least they think, to alter the timeline, and showing how that event alone altered time by just being in 1969.

    Out of Time

    This was a good novella, just right for those who don't want to read a massive science fiction novel. This was the authors' first published novel and it was really interesting, especially his take on the whole Roswell Incident of 1947. I recommend it for young adults, but adults will like it too.
