This is the sequel to the brilliant The '86 Fix.

Although it lacks the innocent magic of the first book, it's still a great read. Hapless Craig now finds himself back in 2016 after his weekend in 1986, but it's a very different 2016; his meddling hasn't gone exactly to plan and there are some truly heart-breaking moments when he discovers just how much some things have changed. There are are also plenty of heart-warming moments though, with the book being a gorgeous mix of sorrow and hope without

Even better than the first

I really loved The 86 Fix and this, the sequel, is even better. Very funny, nostalgic and kind of sad in places, I was completely gripped by Craigs adventures and didn't want them to end. Can't wait for more from this promising skilled author. Highly recommend!

Best book for YEARS

Just absolutely loved every page. Loved the way we weren't kept waiting for some answers. I'm going to read them both again next year!

I've read both the books in the series in very quick succession, they are beautifully written the characters are so real and the situation is too.
The lasting impression make me wonder if I could go back in my life what would I change ? I feel very grateful for those around me and I think I'll appreciate those things a lot more now having read these stories.
Thank you for writing two wonderful books.

A brilliant sequel to the first book that makes you think about life decisions

Highly recommended but read the first book before reading this one.
These are his first two books and extremely well written.

Is it really so hard to proofread a book? If you don't understand the use of a word, then don't use it. You're selling something immutable, that will have your name attached to it for years to come.

"unchartered teritory", not to be confused with "uncharted",
"It would be amiss of me" - "remiss",
"but that only exasperates the problem" exacerbates.

and those are just the 3 that I remember, having finished the book 5 days ago. These things really detract from a story, because it's almost like someon

The ending I had hoped for!

I have just reviewed the first book which I read yesterday. Thankfully it is a bank holiday so I got book two this morning and have spent the morning totally engrossed. What a fantastic writer. Had me completely hooked. Write more!

Entertaining, funny with a wise message

I get it, you don't have to fix the past to improve your future, you start where you are, in the here and now and take action to change, if you do nothing, nothing happens. Loved this sequel, it kept me guessing. It had exciting action along with twists I couldn't have seen coming. Loved it and look forward to reading more from this author

A time travelling fix

I read the two books of this story avidly. My interest peaked in the first couple of pages,and was maintained . I enjoyed the narrative, was intrigued throughout, a good satisfying story. I look forward to more of the authors output

Brilliant conclusion

Part 2 of the 86 books. Which I thoroughly enjoyed! I got engrossed in the characters and the plot line. Very well written and very enjoyable. Funny witty an interesting premise for anyone who wondered what if...?. (Which I think most of us have..!) . The ending I hoped for.

WARNING: Make sure you read The 86 Fix before reading this. The best way to read is The 86 Fix immediately followed by this. They should be sold as one book really as don;t resolve on their own, but are brilliant read back to back.
It's a very clever working of the time travel genre, and because it deals with the actions and consequences of one man, rather than life as we know it (like most) it makes it very personal and really makes you think and question your own decisions. Although it's light

A sequel to THE '86 FIX, and read just as quickly. This was a more introspective and less fun ride than its forebear, but no less fascinating, with the author taking time to reveal the consequences of Craig going back in time and dabbling with a few things... a few things that end up causing so many alternative ripples, some good, most less so. The conclusion, without revealing spoilers, is that it's better using the time you have to make the right choices and learn from your mistakes, rather th ...more

I dove into Fix #2 minutes after finishing the first - goes without saying!

Long story short, not as good as the first, but still pretty enjoyable.

Pearson wisely chooses not to do a replay of the first book, much as I'd love to see one. Instead he takes a turn and a couple of sucker punches, and presents you with a proper sequel. A bit longer than it should have been, its main drawback is that the story arch is not as prominent and therefore the whole of it feels a bit flat. Gets a bit soppy in p

Beyond Broadhall is the sequel to the author's debut book, The '86 Fix.

I know I wasn't alone in clamouring to find out what happened to Craig after his time-travelling adventures in the first book, and "Beyond Broadhall" picks up as Craig is being released from his institute to rejoin a society that thinks he died as a teenager.

As with the first book, there are some hilarious, touching and downright sad scenes which the author paints a picture of through his excellent writing.

Highly recommended

wow totally loved this book did not want to put it down, did not want it to end. I loved this book so much, it made me laugh, smile, cry, its emotional. The second part and I'm so gutted its over. I really hope it gets made into a film as I would love to see this, its just so good. I cannot wait to read more books from this author. Very talented writer to include details of the 80's in these books that make you reminisce and feel like you were there. I really cannot say enough to express how muc ...more

...and this finishes the story

If, like me, you read The 86 Fix you will know it ended on *ahem* a cliffhanger. Beyond Broadhall - brave title as, unless you've read the first book it will mean nothing to you - finishes off the saga in the same wry, charming, and human way as the earlier book. Sadly, I can't see a book like this - in some ways it reminds me of the late Jack Trevor Storey - getting published these days. Not 'high concept ' enough. Well, thanks to the kindle here it is.

When I read the first 86 fix book I really enjoyed it..until i got to the end and then i was pissed off! What i should have done however was just continue straight into the second book because it carries on immediately after the end of the first and is an enjoyable ride. Nice twists and turns and Craig is a likeable character if a bit of a tit sometimes. Give them a lash (together) you won't be disappointed.

After having enjoyed the first book, this was even better. Craig Pelling has got back to 2016 but it is safe to say it hasn't quite worked out as he hoped. Despite the darker feel of this book there is still humour to be found. I share the same feeling of bemusement at how some folk get on tv quiz shows. Can the opportunity of going back into time to fix things work? Either way, it makes for a great story over two novels.

Book one and this conclusion are by far the best books I have read in a while. I loved the style of writing (reminded me of another author I like - Calvin Wade), the clever plotting and the unexpected turns the books took.
Unpredictable and funny yet quite poignant at times. I really enjoyed discovering what happened to Craig and those around him. I kept thinking what a great film these books would make :)

This second installment is every bit as good as the first, which is no mean feat. I found this book so beautiful and touching, especially the relationships between the main characters. They're so well developed and easy to relate to, that you can't help but reflect on your own relationships and life in general whilst reading this. A powerful and joyful book to read, this is the kind of book that you try and force on your friends and family to spread a little of the magic!

You need to read both books

I read the first book and gave 4 stars for the simple reason that I was so disappointed in the ending. I realise that my disappointment rested in the sadness about what had happened. Now I have read the second book I am delighted that all the loose ends have been tied up. A great read from start to finish, thank you.

Great read, a book I couldn't put down

I normally read easy going chick lit, but decided to try The 86 Fix and loved it, had to know the rest of the story so read the conclusion, both in no time at all.
Well written story that kept me wanting more all the way through.
For any sceptics out there, give it a shot, u might just love it like me.

Sequel as great as the first book

It was so great to read a sequel that actually properly finished the story. I hate it when there’s no proper ending but this book tied up the story nicely. A great, easy read. It was a brilliant insight to what happened next and how Craig dealt with his situation. Absolutely loved it

A great read. I couldn't put this one down and flew through it in record time. I got the idea where the story was going but was always amazed what was around the corner. One of my best reads.

Brilliant sequel

I downloaded this book the minute that I finished The 86 Fix because I had to know what happened to Craig, his family and friends. I loved the first book and this one was equally brilliant. More please Mr Pearson, I am definitely a fan.
