Awsome Book!

This is an excellent book with a great story and good characters. It is very very hard to put it down because you feel like being a part of the time traveling adventure! Some violent themes though. Otherwise an awesome book!

Well worth a read

Surprisingly intense and scary, the first installment of the Time Riders series was a pleasant surprise. The beginning was shocking and immediately got me interested in the book, and there were just enough gaps between action to build up a fair bit of tension. The characters appear weak at first but characterization is strong and builds them up until you can see right inside their thoughts, feel their fear and excitement. There was a fair amount of gore including mangled bodies and frightening mutant humans, though it is not graphically described. There are also some very good lessons that can be learnt from the book about teamwork, friendship and the idea of a 'perfect world'. My only criticism is that I felt there could have been a bit more description in places, particularly of the rescuing at the beginning and New York itself, but other than that this book is brilliant.

I didn't even finish it

I started the book thinking it was a bit slow, but hoping it would get better later on. About halfway through, I just stopped reading it because I was bored and confused and the book just didn't appeal to me. But the aspect of time travel and the author's interpretation of different events in history were interesting to read about, and kids and teens should try this book if you like that sort of thing.
