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!
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?... â³ðð¤
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. ð)
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.
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!
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?
#funfridayphoto Time travel, Jack the Ripper, H G Wells, robots - this book has it all. Great time travel read.
Talk about a book that's #fullofadventure ! Time travel, Jack the Ripper, H G Wells, other worlds, exhibitions - something for everyone ð.
