First Epiphany of the Time Vandal

First Epiphany Of The Time Vandal - Harry Bowling

by M.E. Bowling

 

I wasn't too sure of this one at first as it started out feeling more technical and uber spy than I usually like, but it drew me in enough to want to see what was going to happen.

 

My interest grew as it went along, drawing me into an intrigue where someone has stolen a time machine and curiosity of what he would do with it and why he took it. Interest waned again when he stayed in one place for a long time, interacting with local people. The intended point of his involvement with the time and place was revealed about halfway through, but that in itself disappointed me. It was an interesting idea, but not as well delivered as I could wish.

 

The real disappointment for me was that there wasn't a lot of time travel involved in the rest of the story. It became something else and wasn't what I had looked for in choosing this book to read. There were a couple of later jumps, but by then I was bored out of my mind and had started skimming.

 

The writing itself is fine and I didn't notice and mistakes, but the plot just didn't engage me. Perhaps someone else would love it.
