At first I hated this book. It's about a teenager, Ade, who can see the future (which is cool), but he has to get a concussion in order to do it. So the beginning of the book describes various ways in which he gets concussions to see the future and it is quite repulsive. Besides being repulsive, it just didn't make sense that he would not have been put in a mental hospital. That being said, Ade's relationship with his father was quite interesting given that his father is in a coma. Also, I like how every chapter begins with a letter Ade wrote to somebody even though we never see the letters written before or after from the people to Ade.

Now as the book moves along it focuses less and less on the concussions, which is a very good thing. As the story evolves the science fictiony elements become stronger. There are puzzles to figure out and it all leads to the conclusion which we are told in the very beginning that Ade sees himself murdering someone in the future. The philosophical questions of seeing the future are raised and it becomes a race to see if he can change the future and to see what circumstances lead to the vision we are told about at the start of the book. There is also a love story and other interesting side characters with some surprising traits. The ending is unexpected yet it still fits within the framework of the story. Ade's character grows in ways very satisfying to me as the reader.
