Overview

Imagine you’ve just been told you’re the most insignificant person who’s ever lived.

A nobody.

Somebody less important to the world than certain types of mushroom.

Not very nice, is it?

That’s exactly what happens to Geoffrey Stamp after a man from the year 3050 asks him to become a “Time Rep” – a tour guide for the 21st Century, meeting people from the future who travel back through time for their vacations.

You see, Time Reps need to be insignificant. Otherwise, when you go back in time and interfere with their destiny, the space-time continuum has a bit of a fit.

And we wouldn’t want that.

But when Geoffrey uncovers a conspiracy to change the course of history, he is sent on a mind-bending adventure through time and space involving an imaginary lake, a talking seagull, dinosaurs, aliens, the Great Fire of London, and the discovery that he might not be as insignificant as people thought…

    Fun, easy read.

    A fun tongue-in-cheek sci-fi "thriller". I couldn't read it in bed because I kept waking my wife up by laughing! An entertaining read that actually has a good plot.

    If you're a geek and a Douglass Adams fan, you're probably going

    If you're a geek and a Douglass Adams fan, you're probably going to love this book.  Every notation I made in the book was some short hand of me laughing.  I made comments about laughing so hard I was in tears or laughing so hard I was wheezing.  The book is almost non-stop laughs.




    Oddly, other than that, I'm not entirely sure what to say.  The book was absurd to the extreme, making me think of at times how odd and laughable situations could get sometimes with Doctor Who, but mainly, this guy must have been a Douglass Adams fan.  There was even a point where I made a notation about Hitchhiker's Guide when someone was trying to tell himself not to panic.




    There were editing mistakes throughout the book, as I've come to expect with Indie/Self-pubbed novels, but they were easily overlooked.  The book was perfectly formatted, which is always nice.




    As a final note, I guess of caution after reading some of the other reviews, I'd like to point out quite forcefully that this is first and foremost comedy.  It's like watching Senseless, Harold and Kumar Go to White Castle, or Dude, Where's my Car?  You have to be in the right mentality for it, I think, and if you go into it with any sort of serious ideas, you might not enjoy it.  Go into it expecting nothing more than to laugh, and I think you'll have a blast.  Of course, you might get some odds looks from people… especially if you're at a party...

    Hello, this is the author of the book giving Time Rep a high rat

    Hello, this is the author of the book giving Time Rep a high rating to compensate for the guy who liked the book but dragged the rating down by only giving it one bloody star! I assume he did that by mistake, but it's still annoying! Personally, I do think it's a five star book, but then I would say that since I'm the one who wrote it. If I was to honestly review it, I would say 80% of the jokes are really good, 10% are ok and 10% are awful. Plot wise, I think the beginning is a lot if fun, the middle is a bit slow, and the end is awesome. I hope you enjoy it!

    Easy read

    Time travel stories are always difficult to handle. Ward does a reasonable job with it in this book. A few leaps, but overall the plot held together.

    I Also Recommend:

    Entertaining!

    A light-hearted and often funny look at time travel and the consequences of changing history, and how any seemingly unimportant little act can do just that. Its an easy read, and only missed 5 stars because the plot and writing style are a little too simple.

    2.5 stars, unusual story line

    Author does a good job in making you care about an unlikeable character. Good insight into having low expectations and accepting them from people.

    OK read

    I thought the story line was good, but the writing was just ok, hence the 3 stars. Things like having to read the radio transmissions twice because the author thinks that pilots always repeat everything they say on the radio, which actually isn't true, just took away from the story moving forward, and gave the writing an amateur feel.

    For a first novel, not a bad effort. Certainly better than I could do. Not great, not horrible, somewhere in the middle.

    Quirky read for fans of Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy...

    or Robert Heinlein's Job.

    I like meta-fiction, and time travel, even though it strains the suspension of disbelief.

    This was a fun read - an afternoon & 1/2's timewaster. I don't expect it was intended to be much more than that. If so, I missed it.+
