Since the book's about time travel, you dutifully put on your thinking cap and hope for the best. Surprisingly, the best is exactly what you get. You are glued to the page. Feverish. The non-stop excitement doesn't let up until you're halfway through and by then you're fucked. Because the second half falls apart in lots of places (and by "falls apart" I mean "bores the shit out of you"), but at that point, there's no turning back. You're too invested in the outcome, so you slog through all that bloat anyway. Sure, you could skip to the end, but if you do that, the ending won't make any sense. So you press on, powerless against the desire to know how EVERYTHING WORKS OUT. Finally, you reach the end, which is kind of a huge anticlimax, and you wonder how smart it was to spend the whole damn day reading this silly book.
