it was ok
bookshelves: young-adult, science-fiction, time-travel
Read in July, 2012

I thought Goodreads had recommended this to me, but I can't see it in any of the lists I just checked so.. perhaps I was wrong. Which means I can't claim disappointment in Goodreads' recommendation engine.

Because, blah.

* The story doesn't end. It's one of those series where the first book doesn't stand on its own. You've been warned.

* I was going to say I don't know which is more ridiculous --- Klaatu or diskos --- but it's Klaatu that bugs me the most.

* It's all about religion, with a strong basis in Christianity. And I haven't decided if it's pro- or anti-. No doubt I'd have to finish the whole series to figure that out. But I really do not need to see crucifixions in my young adult science fiction reading, thank you. :P

Blah. Do not like. Will not read next book. Will pick up another Hautman only with extreme trepidation.
