The Map of Time
The Map of Time: A Novel | Flix J. Palma
Characters real and imaginary come vividly to life in this whimsical triple play of intertwined plots, in which a skeptical H. G. Wells is called upon to investigate purported incidents of time travel and to save lives and literary classics, including Dracula and The Time Machine, from being wiped from existence. What happens if we change history? Flix J. Palma explores this provocative question, weaving a historical fantasy as imaginative as it is excitinga story full of love and adventure that transports readers from a haunting setting in Victorian London to a magical reality where centuries collide and a writers mind seems to pull at all the strings.

This is one of the most confusing plots I've ever read! Here fiction is mixed with the truth! After reading the middle, I didn't know what to believe and what not! The author confuses the reader and doesn't get out of the web of the plot almost to the end! I also liked the author's style: dialogues with the reader, humor! And I must reread #TheTimeMachine of Wells!

JazzFeathers Well, l'm quite intrigued. That sounds like an exciting ride. And that cover it's just awesome! 6mo
Erofan @JazzFeathers Yes, the cover of the paper version of the book is very intriguing! 😍 The development of the plot in the beginning was a bit slow but then it becomes so exciting! 6mo

It is a historical novel, adventure story and at the same time sci-Fi. The novel takes place in London in the late 19th century, during the life of H. G. Wells. What if the time machine is not an invention of the writer and time travel is possible? Someone wants to visit the future, and someone - to visit the past, and not only to visit, but also to change it. But can the past be changed?... ⏳💂🤖

Read 174 pages of this beauty today! The synopsis led me to believe this was going to be more of a traditional time travel novel, but Mr. Palma has taken it in directions I wasn't expecting. It's nice not to be able to see where a book is going after reading multiple that felt like I could see the end coming a mile away.

Be warned, though, that Part 2 gets steamy. (Wells' reaction to this is priceless. 😂)

Book_devourer I agree! You never know what‘s coming 13mo

This book really had me thinking. Very verbosely written with beautiful florid language. The epic writing at the beginning had me expecting, well... a very epic tale. It wasn't nearly as epic as I was hoping with many fake outs. Yet everything did tie together nicely in the end. I wanted more from the whole book but it was still a fun read. I'm thinking I will try and finish the trilogy.

sparrowssavvy @Yeah_I_Read I had really been looking forward to reading it! It just totally was not what I was expecting. If you read it, I would love to know your thoughts! 2y

Every December, my aunt and uncle's church holds a children's shopping day so all the local kids can find affordable gifts for the adults in their lives. Everything's $0.25, and volunteers wrap the stuff on the spot to preserve the surprise. I took another reading break to round up a boxful of potential presents, including a selection of as-new books.

In digging through my shelves for these books, I also found a couple for my swap partner! Yay!

UnidragonFrag That's a really cool idea! 2y
Tamra How sweet, I love it! 2y
TricksyTails That's a wonderful idea! If you're selling those Gaiman/McKean for .25 that's a steal!!! 2y

Andrew65 A great idea. 2y
Megabooks How wonderful! 2y
TobeyTheScavengerMonk MIRRORMASK! I‘ve seen the bigger book, but what is the little Mirrormask book? 2y
Bradleygirl @TobeyTheScavengerMonk did you see the Mirrormask movie? Freaked me out but it was good 2y
xicanti @UnidragonFrag @Tamra @Andrew65 @Booksandcooks they've been doing it for years now, and it's become really popular! My aunt had all sorts of stories about how serious the kids get when they enter the shopping hall, and how carefully they make their purchases. 2y
xicanti @TricksyTails I'm hoping a kid whose parent is a big Gaiman & McKean fan comes across them and jumps for joy. 2y
xicanti @TobeyTheScavengerMonk it's a denser picture book based on the movie. 2y

I've fallen soooo far behind on my photo a day for #seasonsreadings2016. I don't have a single book in a foreign language, which is sad. But this trilogy was originally written in Spanish, #notinenglish. So, does a translation count?

RealLifeReading Sure! These things are completely up to your interpretation! 3y

Redwritinghood @Liberty I started the second one, but bailed on it. Just wasn't as good. Didn't try the third. 3y
