So, I went into this expecting to like it very much. I did not. I had to force myself to finish it today so that it would stop staring at me from my currently reading page.I expected something like Jasper Fforde mixed with Doctor Who and PKD. It was not.In fact, I kind of hated most of the story. I thoroughly enjoyed the bits of the manual for the time machine, but the rest of it was rather meh. I prefer my sf to be of the NON-literary variety. Now I know that. Give me pulp any day. [eta] Full stops are your friend. If a sentence goes on for longer than a page, I will gnash my teeth and curse your editor.
