I really wanted to like this book (thank goodness it was free). The first few chapters were interesting and based on the book's description, I was excited to see how they were able to go back in time. I really wanted to know what happened to the main characters when this happened. Then I hit the part where they actually found themselves back in 1838. The Cherokee people were not skeptical about our travelers at all. They readily accepted the fact that the characters were from the future (no ques ...more

I have to disagree with the low rated reviews of this book. I loved it! I agree that there were moments when it seemed a little slow, but I think much of that was necessary to set up the historical context for readers who have only heard the anglo-centric views of American history. I loved the detail and the efforts Petrucci took to set up an accurate historical setting for the story. Furthermore, I think he more than answered the critics who questioned the less than incredulous reaction to the ...more
I was really excited to start reading this book. I connected with some of the characters and I thought the book had some great promise.

I felt that the book belabored the mistreatment of Cherokee Indians. I admit America did not treat them fairly or justly and that deserved to be brought up however it did not need to brought up every few pages in the book.

I thought that the book would have been a lot better to move from time portal to time portal or at least move the story along.

I really doubt
I was really excited about Timecachers being into both alternate history and geocaching and the book certainly didn't disappoint. I was surprised by the setting of the story's alternate history being the days before the beginning of the forced removal of the Cherokee Nation from Georgia...known as the trail of tears. I was captured by the story and didn't want to put my kindle down until I found out what happened. I look forward to more books along this line from this author as the book would be ...more
I LOVED this book! Honestly I didn't think I would, but I did. I kind of got off to a rocky start with long, detailed explanations, but I quickly got used to them and grew to appreciate them. The storyline in Timecachers is nothing short of amazing, and the author delivered it superbly! My only major problem was with the characters. Although they were very entertaining, I feel that they were kind of dry and bland. Specifically Adam. But that wasn't a deal breaker for me because the story more th ...more
I'm not a Techie so the beginning of the book was a little hard. It did pick up fast and once it did, I didn't want to put it down. I loved hearing about the time Cherokee time period .... Trail of Tears. The one thing I didn't like and found odd was that none of the Indian's were leery of the fact they were from the future. I do look forward to reading more about Adam, Sal, Alice and Tom's new adventures.

I loved the book, being a geocacher it caught my interest right away. Being time travelers was the ultimate geocaching adventure. The look into the life's of the American Indian brought to life some some little known facts of the tragedy they went through, the life's they lived and most of all to see them as people like you and me.

Great book. Easy to read and nice combo of history and sci-fi. Really liked the time travel bit.
too much tech speak for me - skimmed a LOT and gave up halfway thru....
Interesting slant on time travel
Very interesting premise...4 engineers are asked to test a new "navigational" device and to discover what is causing anomalies in the readings. They are transported to 19th century Georgia and the Removal of the Cherokee from that area. I found the writing to be a bit technical at times, but it did keep me interested and I would definitely recommend this book!
