I was given this book through the Making Connections ARR: Science Fiction group for an honest review, thank you.
I need to first get these thoughts off my chest before I begin my review. First, OMG! Paradoxes! Second, why aren’t more people reading and reviewing this book? People are seriously missing out on a great, entertaining read. This book reminded me of the many TV shows and stories that dealt with time paradoxes, but at the same time it has a unique take on it.

I did roll my eyes a few times at the silly things that happened, particularly when Lauren threw herself at Jacob with no preamble. It was extreme and came out of nowhere.
And I wasn't too fond of Jacob just suddenly deciding that he is wise enough to decide the fate of the entire world. It is extremely arrogant, and I agree with Finkel in that regard ...more

But it turns out that changing history isn't so simple, as Jacob learns. The Kronos Interference has a pretty wide scope and moves quickly through a lot of scenes as Jacob learns what he has really gotten into. The middle third of the book, spent in the past, is by far the best.

A Science Fiction/Time Travel/Alternate History book with a few too many good ideas. Without giving away too much, some characters adhere to some overplayed, well-known archetypes (e.g. the coldly-beautiful seductress, the beautiful damsel in distress, etc.). The book does well with its plot for much of the book, and even serves up what might be a fitting ending were it not packed so full of foreshadowed machinations. The final part of the book, however, serves up some very heavy exposition and...more
Kronos interference is an easy read with well developed characters, and a fast moving plot that kept me interested through the whole book.
For me the book flowed smoothly with no editing or spelling errors to interfere with a really well crafted story.
One that blends science fiction, history and the what if factor, in a way that even a non sci fi person will enjoy.
This is a great first book from the authors I cant wait to see where the next book in t ...more
As I started reading this book, I found it to be a quick and enjoyable book to read. This is true of most of the book. There were some parts near the end I wasn't so sure about but they were short and I was pleased enough with how it turned out. I normally wouldn't choose a book with Hitler on the cover or focusing on any war (but by chance I've read a number of books at least partially ...more
Using an interesting time travel paradox has the primary plot device, this book delivers a well crafted, thoughtful exploration of how one small change can impact the course of history. I find it. Interesting that WWII and Nazism were the defining climax for the 20th Century. As overused as this riff is, the author shows how they served to define and drive the rest of the century with carry over into the 21st.
The first half of the book was better than the second.
Some of the characters were rather flat and often difficult to keep straight because they were so undeveloped.
They seem to have set up for a sequel with the ending. I will probably read it because I am a sucker for sequels. But we'll have to see.
Although the characters were a little thin the plot was definitely enough to keep me reading at a pretty rapid rate.
Strongly recommended for anyone who likes time travel, and Crichton.
I gave it 8/10 on my personal scale.
What can I say, this book is a great read. The last 10 chapters made it all worth while.
There's nothing I can really say without giving away the plot. Just read it and you'll understand.
