When this book begins, it's alright. Not stunning by a long shot, but ok. There's time travel, which is kinda neat. The plot has chances to become interesting. I'd have given it 3 stars just based on the start. Some things were less promising, though ...more

Lullaby by Chuck Palahniuk
"Chuck has never been a very good writer. He comes up with interesting ideas, uses them as a vehicle for a shitty novel, then I read it, and am disappointed every time. I have since stopped reading his books but my girlfriend says they still suck."

Crashing Through by Robert Kurson
"The story of Mike May's life is truly facsinating. He was a record blind Olympic skier, started and ran his own companies, and underwent a radical new eye surgery that allowed him to see. Great insight on how the mind processes images and sensory..." Read more of this review »
