really liked it
bookshelves: apocalypse-of-some-sort

I would actually rate this book 4.5 stars. Very well written and engaging novel of time travel of a sort. Not time travel in a science fictiony kind of way, but through a scientific experiment that goes horribly wrong.

Can you imagine being sent back in time to a much earlier phase of your life, but still retain all of the life experiences and knowledge that you have gained throughout all your years of living? It's a hard concept to wrap your brain around. HUGE. People that were in the present time were abruptly shoved back in time, to a life they'd already lived, but it was not the SAME life, because they had all their future years that they took back with them. Huge concept.

Some people the characters knew weren't in their former life because they hadn't been born yet....some who had died or were killed, were BACK again. SUCH a huge concept.

It's a twisty, turny journey as the people try to navigate their new existence, a group of them (some of whom had been involved with the initial experiment that caused the time shift, including a brilliant, well regard now SIX YEAR OLD scientist!) and try to correct the situation so that they can return to their former lives/time period.

There is opposition from a religious group, with dire consequences. There is murder, resurrection, love, and redemption...

Definitely not one to pass on!
