Awesome!....You often hear children say, Wow! Awesome!.when they see or hear something that they can't quite believe or they think it's just great! I believe this book, ' A Twist in Time ' written by Charles Humphrey Muller, is awesome!! It brings you through many different feelings that you may or may not have experience at one time or another..but the author will certainly bring you through reliving each of them with him.. From the thoughts of suicide to his deep loneliness, disappointments and depression to finding friends and the excitement of what some of those friends were capable of bringing him, to the point of total shock and bewilderment, sometimes quite enjoyable!! I was never so surprised as I was when I came to the end of this story. I'm 79 years and I enjoyed this book immensely!..believe me, you are not wasting your time reading this book! A job well done Mr. Muller!

'A Twist in Time' is nothing short of Brilliant! I really admire this author!.there are not to many people that can tell it the way it is without holding back anything and I have to say that Charles Muller is indeed one darn good writer! To be able to bring you right into the book with him, leaving you with wanting to know more, making you hungry enough that you can't put the book down! When I watch a movie or read a book I have a way of figuring out how the story is going to unfold..It takes all the excitement out of it. but I want to tell you that Charles Muller pulled the rug right out from under me on this book!..sure there were parts that I figured out but not that many. I enjoyed this book very much. The author made his characters come alive and with such passion! it certainly had an affect on me and more than once! At the beginning of this story the author speaks of suicide and boy does he explain it well. I've been there, I know, but what bothers me is the fact that he can explain it so well. Is this book fiction or fact?..seems so no one could explain it that well without feeling it inside!.. I loved his characters though Michael could have used some cheering up!..but Charles Muller got the point across! I couldn't believe the amount of times that the author took my breath away..The ending was brilliant! very well written. What a pleasure it was to read this book. :A Twist in Time' by right should be a best seller. If I could give it a higher score, I would! Get this book, read it, you won't be sorry! Thank you Charles for such a wonderful book!

Once I started A TWIST IN TIME I couldn't put it down! For one thing, it's very sensual, yet frank and open. The characters are all interesting and full of life - I was drawn right in to the story, with much sympathy for Michael, who had to put up with the strange British accents and weather - for a start! And I kept smiling and nodding to myself over several scenes, sometimes ironic and humorous, which thankfully lighten the darker mood of loneliness and pain Michael struggles to surmount. When I got to the end of the book I had to go back and read again the last two chapters, because I wasn't sure what version was a 'replay' and what actually happened. Was that the author's intent? It's an interesting concept that no matter what we do we can't alter (except in little twists) the end result of our ultimate destiny. I suppose if we don't reach it we'll have to carry on in another realm or reincarnation!

Charles Humphrey Muller came to Scotland from South Africa where he was a professor of English Literature, with the intention of buying a small hotel and concentrating on his writing. He now has several books under his belt, both fiction and non-fiction, and even runs his own Internet publishing company, Diadem Books. ¿A Twist in Time¿ is the sad story of Michael Grant, a twisted individual, married to the wrong woman and who hates his life. He¿s depressed and suicidal. He wonders all the while how his life might have turned out if he had the chance to live it all over again and to make different choices. He is given that chance and we see him apparently making the same mistakes with the same girl all over again ¿ but does he really? All through the 60¿s we follow the re-run of Michael¿s life and eventually discover that some surprising changes have indeed been made. This book is meticulously written, nothing is left out and while the plot seems straight enough, the time-twists can be slightly disconcerting for the reader. It is well worth the effort however. Although there are some explicit and powerful sex-scenes, the narrative mainly proceeds at a measured pace. It¿s perhaps not the book you¿d give great-auntie Millie for her birthday, but nevertheless good adult fiction with an unpredictable, slightly unbelievable ending. This work is meaty and sustaining and could in no way be termed lightweight or frivolous. It¿s a good, square meal and two veg which will give the reader much food for thought and no little enjoyment.
