I have to say that Out of Time hooked me. I enjoyed reading Out of Time, and thought it very interesting in regard to how they dealt with the missions the characters were sent on, and I also loved the ending. I thoroughly enjoyed it. Considering time travel has been done a lot in books, I found this novella unique and liked the way the author tied it all together. Once I started, I had trouble putting it down.
His was so boring and too detailed about time travel theories. Men on the whole do not write books that women enjoy. I rarely quit a book once I start.
Thought provoking for sure! Some of the zooming back and forth in time was a little confusing but it still kept me interested enough to keep going. It was amazing to me the historical events that were chosen to be changed and how some would be left alone because the repercussions of changing a detail would have been too devastating. The possible scenarios were interesting.
My 10 year old and I read Out of Time and we both really enjoyed it. It's a clean, safe read for all ages. Since it was a novella, it lacked some detail, but I didn't expect it to, since it wasn't a novel. The author managed to keep the story tied together and it kept my interest.
