There's something viscerally weird about reading a book and literally seeing the tatters of the plot unraveling further before your eyes, especially when the book itself is about time unraveling. It's like grabbing hold of a rope to pull yourself along and then realizing after some time you're not holding anything in your hands because the rope was made of snow and at some point dissolved. But at least you can explain that. I don't know what the heck happened here.

This book does pull off one nea
Perhaps a re-write as a Hitch-hikers novel, where the characters would simply have a good time in the madness, rather than simply die over and over again, would make a better novel.

There was a good idea at the heart of this book but so badly executed as to make it all but unreadable.

Mostly, I was confused. I didn’t have a clue what was going on much of the time – and it’s not as if I’m ignorant of quantum physics, parallel universes and the theories of time travel, they’re something of a speciality of mine – but it all hung on such a thin and perplexing plot with so much needless repetition and feeble characterisation I just couldn’t maintain enough interest to bother wit
I am so confused.

Utterly and completely confused. I'm also upset, but I'm not entirely sure why.

If you love the Doctor, read it (but you will be confused the whole time).
Interesting concept and passable characterization - I was willing to stick with it till the end, but ultimately I required more explanation than I got.
Totally weird and confusing, but I enjoyed it anyway.
