As I read through the first 20 pages I literally considered not finishing this book, which is something I rarely do; however, the writing seemed quite poor, and the writer either has an addiction to coffee or is being paid by a company with interests in said beverage (the references to coffee continue throughout the book, and because I am not a coffee drinker they seemed a bit over the top). As I contemplated the virtues of this book (or lack thereof) I could not help but notice that it was publ ...more

This is my novel, so to be fair I'll just post what Writer's Digest said about it:


“A striking cover and excellent production values make this a book one would pick off a rack. That would be a rewarding move, for Meridian is a science fiction novel combining history, quantum theory, and time travel in a highly intriguing manner.

A novel of time travel, Meridian is about a team of scientists at UC Berkeley who develop the Arch, which is a device for moving through time.

I'm so glad I had a Kindle to read this book! Apparently this book was self-published by the author as an e-book because it was not picked up by any major publishing company. Their loss. While the book was a formulaic thriller (think Dan Brown with a Michael Crichton theme) it freaking ROCKED. I was gripped on every page and I gasped frequently in shock and dismay.

Read this book... but don't read the next review down because with all the spoilers in it, the book won't be interesting at all.
