I got a copy from the publisher in exchange for an honest review35 stars rounded to 4 I uite enjoyed it overallThis novel is a tale of choices gone wrong of moments that could've been but had to be sacrificed of events that still left a sad taste even though they weren't that bad at first sight It's a tale of time travellers that are doomed to meet each other coming from different directions one gradually gaining insight he wouldn't have had if the other hadn't allowed him to grasp them first and conversely It's also a tale of love both doomed and stronger than everything A rather odd mix but one that I found intriguing and entertainingTime travel here isn't exactly the main focus although it's the main means Some of the motivators could be easily seen as self centered and selfish—and it isn't lost on the characters who admit it themselves at one point or another One of the interesting sides of the novel apart from the science fiction aspect is that it challenges human nature in several occasions and you easily find yourself wondering What decision would I have made in such circumstances Can I really blame this character for wanting that The scientific concepts behind time travel are never really explored in depth but somehow it doesn't really matter At least it didn't matter that much to me because important than that were the people the decisions they would make and how they would manage to cheat the space time continuum in order to get what they wanted—or had to do to prevent something really bad from happeningGranted when I say that scientifically time travel wasn't explored a lot it's not exactly true We don't get explanations about how the modules work but the reasoning behind the travels behind echoes of people being left in the timeline seemed believable and interestingAnother nice part of the book is how it appears as a puzzle and as a reader you have to piece things together Something mentioned in the very first chapters will make full sense only 150 pages later yet when it finally does you realise you were right in paying attention On the downside the explanation behind the unhappenings was perhaps a little too simple to my taste in that I actually wanted to see of let's say what was causing them Due to the first person point of view that adversary was painted in dark shades than light ones and I'm left wondering if things were supposed to unfold the way they did or if there wouldn't have been yet another way less dark I also thought that a few things went too fast towards the end a certain person breaking down for instance as this felt just bizarre and that the whole Project might have deserved being mentioned than just in passingNigel at times seemed somewhat callous—not an unexpected nor unforgiveable trait considering all the unhappenings; only a few events were brushed over eg his feelings regarding his parents and it was sometimes hard to decide whether he did things out of love and forced himself not to think of the impact on himself or had just lost the ability to feel I guess it's not exactly a defect as the context justifies it but at some moments I appreciated it and at others I didn't Same at the very end with Helen whose decision was I don't know both understandable and why on Earth did we do all that for if it was for things to come to this However as said at the beginning of my review I enjoyed the story nonetheless It probably also deserves to be revisited to see if I haven't missed anything between the lines
