I often select a book based solely on the title and cover. This process actually produces more “hits” than “misses” especially when doing so within a specific genre. If I’m on the fence I may also glance at the back cover (for indications of an unknown author’s prior work) or, even the blurb on the inside of the cover.

“Here, There & Everywhere” was once such random grab with a highly favorable outcome. I can’t (won’t) give away much of the story or plot because I think this book deserves to

I've always loved time travel stories.

When I was a kid, I loved them for the sheer coolness and excitement of the idea: If you could go anywhere, anytime, where would it be? As I got older, I still loved the cool idea, but suddenly things like internal consistency and paradoxes loomed larger — if that stuff was off, it started to ruin the cool fun idea. Then I read a lot of stories where the science was at the forefront, but little things like plot and character faded away. I kept looking for a

I've been enjoying discussions with friends about Young Adult fiction and "fiction that appeals to teens but isn't specifically marketed as YA". I think a likely reason why more authors aren't known for their teen readership is that the YA label often turns off many adult readers (which is unfortunate) but most teen readers will not hesitate to read something that isn't specifically labeled YA (which is fortunate). There's a lot of common ground in the Fantasy / Science Fiction genre in ...more

This is really one of my favorite books. It is the one I like to re-read when ever I get the chance. Chris Roberson has written a fun book about a woman via a bracelet called Sofia who can travel through time and space and divergent time lines as well.

Even though he keeps up with current theories of time travel he doesn't forget that the best science fiction isn't about the science but the people.

So as with some science fiction the writer can get too involved in the science and forget to develop

What a handy gadget to have, the Sofia. And the trips I'd make with it would be ones quite different to Roxanne's. My top three would be:
Back to 1918 to the cellar at Ekaterinberg to see which of the Princesses survived.
Back to the Pacific Ocean, particularly Gardner Island in 1937 to see where Amelia Earheart did end up and
back to medieval Europe to find the real Romeo and Juliet.
I particularly enjoyed the humour, the way Roxanne aged along with her sensibilities AND the ending.

After being slightly traumatized by The Time Traveler's Wife, it was nice to enjoy this relatively angst-free fantasy romp through time and alternate worlds. The shout-outs to other time traveler stories do start to get a bit too silly and the author did annoy me seriously at least once, but on the whole, it was all in good fun.

No sé que decir de este libro, no sé si es bueno o malo, sólo el lector en turno lo decidirá.

21/04/2013 Es un buen libro, quizá el tema no es muy original pero la trama y el desarrollo son buenos, dan ganas de leerlo por segunda vez (y eso es raro en mí). Le aumenté una estrella.

I loved the humor in this book. At times, I was completely lost, especially in the physics, but all in all it was pretty good.
uneven (you can tell it wasn't written as a novel), but an author to watch. More importantly, there are many Beatles appearances. I loved that.

Read this after hearing the writer interviewed on Cover to Cover ( Guessed the twist at the start. Which is a shame. Too obvious!

A good time travel novel that basically hit all the tropes and commented on them nicely. Not much of a plot but good character development.
