How I Came Across This Book
I hopped over to goodreads to read the synopsis of A Different Time and I needed to know this story!
And here is what it says.
Keith Nolan falls in love with a remarkable young woman from the past, talking to him on a home video she recorded in 1989. To keep their conversation going, he must find more of her tapes—while forces work against them both, and time is running out.
After having read so many reviews by my fellow book bloggers, today is my stop for the same.
Rating and Review
As can be seen from the synopsis, home videos play an important role and therefore a camcorder for rating. 😉
The beginning was slow for my liking and I kept on wondering how those particular scenes fit into the story on the bigger level. The feeling continued until the action really happened. The mystery. The magic!
Since the moment the story found it’s groove, I could not wait to know what happened next. That was the moment that found me engrossed in the lives of the protagonists. I was cheering for them. Rooting for them to somehow make it all work because the dynamics were so that anything could have been possible.
It was a time travel book with no time travel at all – go figure!
Without giving any spoilers. let me just say that it was not the ending that I wanted but it still made the journey worthwhile.
The simplistic narrative of Michael Hill enhanced the reading pleasure with its clarity and straightforwardness.
In my opinion, following are the weak points of the story;
- A little more character building would have gone a long way
- A few scenarios felt more like repetition that necessary for the story to proceed
Overall, a 3.25 for this book. Do give it a go.
