This book is incredibly well thought out and should be read by every science fiction nerd in the world. The story, ideas and writing is all wonderfully done and while it may be a tad predictable, it's still a great read for anyone who has ever their time thinking too much about time travel. I definitely recommend this book, it's short and doesn't overstay its welcome, it's easily understandable so long as you take pauses to process what you just read, and will keep you thinking about it for a week after you're done with it. Definitely worth the read, 4 stars.
A Very nice read
I bought this book after a recommendation. I'll have to say its not the best book ever, but it is interesting and you can't put it down. I read the whole book in less than a day. It's a nice short story. The only reason it's not 5 stars is that it does tend to drag in some spots.
