Guest Reviewer Fran’s Thoughts:
The book has so much potential. The story line is wonderful, engaging and full of excitement. The cast of characters have diverse personalities, and to make things more fun, our author brings in a machine that interacts as a person. The main characters are Angelie Thompson and John Salvador, who time travel to three different time periods, 1970, 2015, and 3050. It depicts love, determination, deceit, resolution, forgiveness and friendship. It was a fun read, and it has a lot of parts that make the storyline interesting.
Despite the creativity present in the content of the book, it seems to still be in draft form, as there are numerous grammatical mistakes. A couple of times words are repeated, and punctuation such as periods are left off, so a closer eye given to the editing would be recommended. Though as the book is self-published book, I understand that it can be difficult to edit your own work. Some fine tuning on some of the sentences, so the reader doesn’t have to stop and decipher the meaning within the context of the paragraph.
None of these grammar mistakes are insurmountable, and the story is tender and endearing. The plot is strong, extremely creative, and interesting.
