Having just read the second of this series I believe it is time I retrace my steps and uickly review this fine novel Of course if you want a interesting read jump on to the second reviewAs far as YA reads go TimeRiders is brilliant There's a lot of action a lot of deaths and lots of technology Not to mention that a few brilliant twists and tension exist in spade loads throughout the gripping plot Of the two I have read there is no doubt the first is superior in terms of plot and wow factor Alex Scarrow writes well with intelligence and creativity not stooping to point out obvious facts through his characters Rather each character tends to respond as a reader an every day man or woman thrust into the circumstances they face would So on to the intriguing premise and the reason I picked up this novelTime travel If the whole complexity of the idea doesn't intrigue you then I don't know what will Liam Maddie and Sal are all plucked from various times in history by a man known simply as Foster Each of them should and would have died on the Titanic on a plane or in a fire Saving them from such disasters where no bodies would remain allows for no time contamination as you may have already guessed The three young adults were saved for the purpose of fixing the time stream They've been recruited by an agency that manipulates time travel Turns out time travel fifty years in the future is illegal because of its reality altering ability Its their job to prevent the changing of time which can be detected as reality shifts Of course they have the aid of a human robot built like Arnold Schwarzenegger to help them and warnings from the mysterious agencyWhat I did find interesting is that their base is set on September 10 and 11 2001 in New York They basically have to live in a time loop that keeps them witnessing the terror of the Twin Tower explosions over and over again In this instance however the author uses the incident as a backdrop a setting rather than using it to depict the horrors consistently Which I appreciate as a readerIn short if you like time travel concepts then this is a brilliant book to read It has great characters action and well everything to make it a perfect page turner This is a book you can just sit down and read

Para mudar o passado É por isso ue existem os Timeriders para nos proteger E para evitar ue as viagens no tempo destruam o mundoNo primeiro livro desta série a euipa acabada de recrutar é lançada numa aventura mesmo antes de acabar o seu treino Paul Kramer um físico brilhante do futuro tem planos para alterar o passado – para conduzir a Alemanha nazi à vitória contra os Aliados e para assegurar um Reich Mundial sob o seu domínio Liam. If books won accolades for the gripping start of their plots then this first volume in the series ought to have won award after award after award It is a really clever concept where young people destined for a horrible death are rescued by a stranger suddenly appearing in the moment of catastrophe The option given to them either stay and die as was planned or take the step into the unknown and become a 'Time rider'The job of these new recruits is to live in one day of time continually repeated but watch for any slight change in the repeated action changes that would signify someone had entered into history at a different point and had skewed history The flaw in the plotline was the fact that the timeriders themselves were aberrations in history They ought to have died and therefore their presence in the 24 hour time capsule they inhabited was a sensitive balancing act They needed to pass through each day without affecting or changing the throb of history other than the moment when they encounter glimpses of new details in an otherwise identical dayThis first novel in the series introduces the main characters and their first adventure which is to go back into time and prevent Hitler being advised against invading Russia The plot and initial concept is excellent the sadness I felt about this was it missed an opportunity to investigate in a uite ingenious and challenging way the alterations in history that might have happened Scarrow chose instead to veer wildly into apocalyptic destruction and zombie terror instead of writing a thought provoking and intriguing storyOnce again of course this is a book for young adults and not picky hyper critical middle aged blokes so I would hate to denigrate the novel in anyway that would stop its target audience from picking it up It is clever and exciting and I will definitely read anotherThe relationship between the lad Liam and the artificial intelligence Bob is a delight and really works what doesn't work is Scarrow's attempt to differentiate the young people by their idiosyncratic way of speaking Liam's irish brogue Sal's Indian street speak just clunk and grate I really hope Mr Scarrow in the next book just makes use of 'Sal said' 'Maddy suggested' 'Liam shouted' etc So not a towering work of literature destined to stand forever unless one of the timeriders slips forward and inserts it on a bookshelf in 2136 but well worth a read as a clever idea which I hope will be honed and less self conscious as the series continues

The TimeRiders is a great book that has hooked me for the rest of the series The blurb for this book is brilliant How can you not be intrigued by this Liam O’Connor should have died at sea in 1912 Maddy Carter should have died on a plane in 2010 Sal Vikram should have died in a fire in 2026Yet moments before death someone mysteriously appeared and said ‘Take my hand ’ These three teens are saved from certain death and catapulted into a world of time travel and mystery They become part of a secret organisation that ensures history is correct Maddy and Sal take on the roles of the support team at their New York base guided by their saviour and mentor Foster Liam is the poor guy who gets the job to travel through time to fix things accompanied by a half human half techno miracle named Bob who is the brawn of the team The world has gone crazy and the team need to find out why by going back in time to fix the future Liam and Bob have plenty of obstacles to overcome as they pass through time to search for the cause of altered history Whilst Maddy Sal and Foster are fighting their own battles in the changed world that it has caused Even though they are in different time frames the whole team need to work together to fix the problemI really enjoyed the story I think that Scarrow has done a great job This is an action packed adventure that has plenty of intrigue and imagination The plot is set across multiple time frames and works really well I'm very keen to move onto the next book in the series and beyond I understand that the 7th book has just been released I'd better get cracking so I can catch upFor any of my usual Middle Grade followers here's a tip The target audience for this book is YA and there is violence in some parts so I wouldn't recommend it for Middle Graders Note I don't claim to be a pro reviewer I am a reader My reviews are based on my personal thoughts around the story that the book is trying to tell I'd rather focus on the story which is the reason I read rather than dissect the book and pass comment on writing style structure or typos To see of my reviews please visit me at wwwswlothiancom
