Time Pullers may forever change the way people think about UFOs, but here, readers will find no reference to alien craft of any kind. What do Napoleon Bonaparte, an Osage Indian dancing and singing to the stars on a lonely hill on a dark night, and a semi-trailer truck trying to run a gate on a US Air Force Base have in common? Only Time Pullers will tell.

X Files meets the Time Tunnel as a disparate band of army, agents and scientists attempt to change past events to save humanity’s future.

Time Pullers is not a light and easy read: with a wealth of technical detail, complex science and army procedure, there’s weight to this tale, it’s not a book for the plane and the beach. There’s a lot of exposition at the start, which takes a little getting into, but as the characters start to grow and the dark and intricate rhythms of the story and complicate

The book starts out very technical and the characters are a bit analytical. The story is good and prepare to have your mind twisted at the end. Stay with the book and you will appreciate the ending. I thank Mr. Deakins for giving me the opportunity to read his story.
*I received this novel from the author, after I showed an interest in his novel on Goodreads.*

This novel is a sci fi novel, set in an Air Force base in the US. The novel begins when a strange, mysterious man tries to force his way into the Air Force base, insisting that he needs to speak to somebody in charge. He calls himself "Mr G" and says he is from the future. He tells an incredible tale about how he needs help to change the past in order to save the future.
I liked this novel, I gave it

C'est un livre que j'ai lu en VO et j'avoue que j'appréhendais un peu d'être freinée dans ma lecture par un vocabulaire trop technique (mais je l'aurai été tout autant en français) voire scientifique et pas du tout. J'ai lu ce livre très facilement et sans souci particulier et j'ai vraiment beaucoup aimé ma lecture. Je suis tout de suite rentrée dans l'histoire car l'auteur a particulièrement réussi à nous tenir en haleine régulièrement. De simples petits détails nous intriguent tout au long du ...more

This story starts off with a little bit of action: This guy shows up at a military base wanting to see the base commander. It is quite a hook the way it’s presented. I wanted to know what the deal was, you know, with this strange Mr. G.

But the story falls apart with all the physics of time travel, at a point when we should be getting to know the characters so we care about the outcome. It is dry reading. There is no conflict/resolution. There is a sort of stilted unbelievable non romance between
I received a copy of this book as a gift from the author in exchange for a review.

A mysterious man crashes a truck into the gate of a military base, claiming that he has a way to change the future, which has been altered from its original continuum. Time Pullers continues to detail the scientists and agents who become involved in an attempt to change the past to save the future.

This book was difficult to get into. There’s a lot of dialogue, and sometimes it got confusing as to whom was speaking.

This book starts off very slowly and with a lot of technical physics words. In some ways this helps to make this science fiction idea seem more real, but it is a bit excessive at times. However, once I discovered that the story makes just as much sense if I simply skimmed over these sections instead of trying to read the whole thing, I began to really enjoy the story.
It is not the kind of novel that I usually enjoy: the story is more developed than the characters and I usually prefer the opposit

I won this book on Goodreads.
In my opinion this book would benefit from a very strong editor. I know there is a good story and characters here. It was just very hard to get to them. In the begin of the book, it gets distracting with all the adjectives strung together to make a hard scifi story. It became distracting from the story and the concept that Mr. G was from a more advanced time. In the middle to last third of the book some of the main characters make decisions that felt like their backs

Alas, I have finally succumbed to what appears to be common practice amongst authors--rating one's own book. And why not with a bias? How else could I, and why should I claim less than five stars if I want others to read it, or so goes the argument. Never a horn blower, I, but... it seems the right thing to do at this time.

Read it--you will believe.

The book was great. It was a little slow at the start but by the time the action started picking up, i was hooked. I so would like to see another book in the series. Just to be able to see where the characters go. Highly recommend this book, a must read in my book.

Meh. Too predictable. I never really liked any of the characters.
