it was ok

I felt like the resolution was clever, but that the first three quarters of the book were an abuse of foreshadowing. The author kept promising, "No, really, eventually something will happen. And it will probably have something to do with time travel." In the meantime, bear witness to some lukewarm sixth grade interpersonal drama and some people practicing for a lame game show. Listening to the audiobook format probably didn't help; listening to a book can cause even fast-paced works to seem to drag out.
