This is an intelligent and fast-paced science fiction novel that keeps the reader’s attention right to its excellent conclusion. It reads like an action-filled detective story, but the narrative is full of interesting and well-formed ideas about life in the distant future. The interest circles around different time frames (hence the book’s title): 1963, 1996, 2007 and 2053 – periods of history which conflict and collide, following a family curse of centuries before. The characters are extremely ...more

What a fun book! I love time travel stories, but this one felt different and unique. The plot was realistic, which probably doesn't seem to make sense for a fantasy novel, but Chiocchi sets everything up with enough real world information that it makes the supernatural stuff seem believable. The story had great flow and moved along at a perfect pace, making it an easy entertaining read. I'm looking forward to reading more from Chiocchi.

Reading a book means stepping into a world the writer created, believing it, living it. You have to trust that the writer will take care of you. In this case, the writer failed—and failed within the first few pages. There is a scene where the boy’s parents visit him at the sanatorium. The doctor turns the catatonic boy around so his legs are dangling off the bed. He performs various reflex tests. The doctor spews some medical info and...THEN! THEN! The doctor approaches the boy’s bed where the ...more

I don't normally read sci-fi but received an audible copy and really enjoyed it. The author took a complex topic and made it interesting. He wrote in a way that the time hopping was easy to follow and the characters were well developed so you either cheered for them or hated them. Well done Mr. Chiocchi.

An intriguing blend of paranormal with science fiction, Chiocchi’s third book takes readers into the lives of two members of a prominent New England family from two different time period, who shrewdly use their wealth, position, and psychic abilities to manipulate past events in their own favor.

It was 1963 when seven-year-old Shippy Penfield’s sudden catatonic state forced his parents to send him to a psychiatric sanitorium for treatment. Convinced Shippy was a victim of a family curse, Chris
This story starts off in the 1960s at a Christmas party where an extremely intelligent young boy (Ship Pennfield) falls victim to a catatonic fit and never recovers. The narrative then focuses on his relative Chris Pennfield, a college professor, who has become a reclusive alcoholic after the student he’d been having an affair with committed suicide in a highly dramatic fashion, making him an object of notoriety among his former colleagues.

Chris simply believes he’s fallen victim to the family

TIME FRAMED by Roger Chiocchi explores the complex concepts of time travel, parallel realities, and a one-world-order. Since the arrival of the Mayflower into the New World, the Pennfield family has been cursed by a vengeful spirit. The curse claims its victim approximately every sixty years. But an unusual event alters the course of the curse, setting in motion a game of chess across time. Two branches of the Pennfield family, separated by almost 50 years, seek to realign this timeline in favor ...more

I really loved reading this book. It is such a good story and full of interesting and amusing characters. Obviously the author must have done a lot of research and must have a very good brain for physics- there is so much in here! But he manages to make it accessible and weave it seamlessly into a fun and rolling story line. Very much like a Stephen King book in that - yes- maybe it could use a wee bit of editing - but the story and the characters are so good that you don't mind. A well plotted ...more

Excellent intelligent book with great characters which will keep you gripped from beginning to end. Roger uses the intricacies of time travel to weave a story across many layers without losing the great storytelling and characters contained within.

Totally recommend this book to anyone looking for a fantastic read.

Back in the 1600s, Charles Penfield drove a girl to her death. Since then, her soul roams the world seeking revenge through generations of the same family. She strikes every few decades to cause havoc. This had come to be known as the Pennfield curse.

Decades later in 2053, Jimmy Mashimnoto-Pennfield is well aware of the family curse and is looking for ways to get rid of it. He finds a solution in time travel, something that will not exactly get rid of the curse but will divert it from him. An

"An atypical time travel story...fascinating."

- Kirkus Reviews
Two members of a family--from different time periods--use psychic abilities to manipulate past events but with conflicting purposes in Chiocchi's (Baby Boomer Bust?, 2010, etc.) sci-fi tale.
There's a curse in the Pennfield family. Certainly, college professor Chris believes so, partially blaming his alcoholism and philandering ways on a ghost's centurieslong vendetta against the Pennfields. In 2007, he writes a letter for future
