I just noticed that I never wrote a review of this book...

I stumbled upon it when search for Gary Paulsen's The River at the library. Having just become an avid watcher of Doctor Who, I thought it would be fun to read a young adult fictional tale of time travel.

At under 80 pages, this is a very quick read for an adult. Unfortunately, it's not Paulsen's best. Since I read it two months ago, I admittedly don't remember too much about the details of the book. It was cool that people in this fictional world were able to travel in time to watch events in history unfold rather than read them in a textbook. However, it was a bit hokey reading about the computer hackers who were trying to change history. As an adult, I wasn't satisfied with this book, but 8-12 year olds might find this book fun.

Recommendation: Fans of Paulsen's Brian Robeson books should skip this lesser known book.
