Alison’s average rating for 2020
I had a rather long review that apparently didn’t save? Anyway. This was great. It’s a time travel novel and a post-catastrophe novel. But it’s less about the technology or the disaster, and more about the people.
This was...fine? One of those books where nothing much happens, but in such a way that it seems like there’s a lot going on. Except there isn’t. The story either needed to be opened up more to the world, or had the claustrophobia of the town cranked up higher. There were some great opportunities for conspiracy that were left untapped, and a lack of tension in an element that really could have used some weird Lethem tension.
