2015 San Francisco Book Festival Honorable Mention

Her neurological implants should be dormant, but she receives a cr

Very well written. This was a page turner for sure. The use of switching back and forth between years had me trying to keep close track of things.
The last hundred pages saw the pace really ramped up and lots going on. There also is a lot of pertinent information thrown at us toward the end.

The author thoughtfully had the main characters deal with some moral issues based on the situation they found themselves in. One of the deaths was very sad to me. I hated to see that character killed. I don'

My first win! Thank you Goodreads! I am very excited and will post my review as soon as I have received and read Peer Through Time.

Follow up: (No Spoilers!) Just finished the book this weekend. Let me say that I have never been a super huge sci-fi fan, so for me to give this 4.5/5 stars it HAS to be good. Congrats to David Pennington for a very well written whodunnit!!

The story is about a young woman who is trying to save her family from a future killer by manipulating the past. In the beginnin

Full of surprises!

This one baffled me, then shocked me, then totally surprised me! San Francisco! Mystery! Murder! But we don’t find out ‘whodunnit’ for a long time and we keep trying to figure it out and are still surprised at the end. Time travel backwards and forwards! Good guys and bad guys, but which is which, we keep guessing? A smart, likeable protagonist, Carmela, who deftly leads us through this compelling story. An empathic, sweet Android psychologist. Wonderful technology and Artifici

To be fair to the author.. i am only one hour in to the audio book, but I really cannot justify going any further.

Frankly... it's just too damn slow. Nothing is happening except for the main character doing a lot of whining about her life, her past and the relationship with her sister. I'm shocked that this was written by a male author as it reads like a bad "Lifetime" show.

In addition, the exposition is very clumsily handled. i don't care about any of the characters and this far into the audio

(actually 2-1/2 stars -- between it was okay and I liked it)
Although I'm a Big fan of time travel stories, I had a little bit of a problem getting into this book. There didn't seem to me to be any focus or direction (or story really) for so long, and SO many characters! While it never really grabbed me or became a 'page turner', I did eventually finish it (longer than it usually takes me to read a book). Some of the technical explanations and character associations were confusing and dragged on,

Not surely I bought this book- I have no interest in time travel stories , but decided to go out of the box on this one. I found it hard to follow as the characters were jumping around so much into different years. Always good to read something different.

Time travel story with bad historical data.
Bad characters, bad science, all bad.
Sorry to the author, I just didn't liked.

This book is Mr. Pennington's debut novel. It is a fine showing for a first book. For a time travel story it was a good one and I have not read a good one in a while. When I read the author's impressive background of computer programming and psychology with his love for futurism and theoretical physics, I was impressed but also a little worried that I was going to be reading a book that might be unbelievable with a few words that are outside of my vocabulary. All my worries were for nothing. In ...more
