Challenge criteria: A book about someone with a superpower.
Disclaimer: I read this book as part of a blog tour run by Dave from The Write Reads. This has in no way affected my opinion of the book, nor the outcome of this review.
Keith Nolan falls in love with a remarkable young woman from the past, talking to him on a home video she recorded in 1989. To keep their conversation going, he must find more of her tapes—while forces work against them both, and time is running out.
What I liked:
This has a sci-fi feel to it, as the main character can pretty much talk through time. I’m not usualls a sci-fi lover but I was hooked on this.
It’s a super short book, clocking in just under 200 pages. In this space it packs in a serious punch, and you’re going to find a fast paced and enjoyable read throughout the book. It’s perfect reading during these dreary winter months to brighten the evening up a little.
The ending of this book is one which will stay with me for a long time. It’s heartbreaking to read, and I do admit it ALMOST broke my record of not crying at books.
What I didn’t like:
I found it hard to connect with Keith at times, as we have such vastly different interests and passions. But he’s a great character and I loved reading about his and Lyndsey’s relationship.
This book would have been perfect were it not for one fatal flaw as far as I’m concerned. I hate instalove with a passion, and it appeared here.
Out of five:
Four. It’s a book I didn’t expect to love as much as I did, and it’s ideal for a quick read that will really draw you in.
