This will contain a few very minor spoilers but I doubt it would ruin anything if you have not read this book yet.
The first half of the book really had my attention and I wanted to see what was going to happen, however after the time travel part it lost me a little bit. I felt like some things could have been explained better in the book for instance when Jacob first went through to the other side it was confusing about where he ended up at. There was some over explained parts of the book and some very under explained parts for me. Not to say I didn't enjoy the second half of the book because I really did just felt like it could have been done a little better.
The story line and the pictures were a great idea, and for me at least a very original idea. I loved the old time pictures in the book and I loved the children but it would have been great if there backgrounds would have been explained a little more.
I will more then likely pick up the second book in the series because the ending is a cliff hanger.
Overall I would recommend this book but probably more to teens who the book is geared towards anyway. ;) Adults like me can enjoy it to tho.

Tracy oh this one is gonna be really good! I love the pictures in it too! It's already had the rights brought (bought?) for a movie.
