This was a fun and fast-paced time travel! I read it quite quickly, and enjoyed watching Dorothy adapt to the future! Let's break it down, shall we?
The Things I Liked:
- •The characters worked so well together! I love when a group dynamic just works, and this one does. Even though most of the characters could not possibly be more different from one another, they were an incredible team working toward a common goal. And, they seemed to have grown to genuinely care about each other, which is an added plus. In addition, there's quite a bit of character growth that takes place.
- •The atmosphere was on point. The author did a great job at distinguishing the feelings of the different time periods. No two seemed the same, which is huge, as I want to not just know I've changed times, but to feel as though I have too. The bleakness of 2077 was certainly necessary too, to understand the desperation of the characters.
- •It was an action-filled story that moved quickly. The chapters are shorter, and interspersed with letters left behind from another traveler (whose importance you'll learn all about!) and it makes for a great flow during the book. I was eager to hop back in to the story every time, as it was just plain entertaining.
The Things I Didn't:
- •It was fairly easy for me to predict most of the things. Now, it was still entertaining and enjoyable, so this wasn't a complete dealbreaker, but I guessed one of the biggest twists from almost the start. So that was a bit of a bummer. And I guessed a few more minor details. But again, not a dealbreaker.
Bottom Line: I'll definitely be reading the sequel to see what happens to these (hopeful) saviors of the future!
