Why are the timelines so completely screwed....I am assuming that the book is set in 1998 and yet there are references to x-boxes, i-pods and a whole raft of things that were yet to be invented... Very, very poor research...

Sophie Lantz why would you assume the book is written in 1998? She spent 10 years researching and preparing for this book so I wouldn't discredit her based on your assumptions..
