Let s take a episode from the TV series Time Tunnel and write it in printWhat do three random strangers have in common Well imagine this your having a normal day and then you are told by a complete stranger your about to die You have a choice either stay and face death or be pulled out from the situation you find yourself in and become a member of the Timeriders Or is that Time Tunnel To me this does read like a lazy rip off from the old TV series There is even a episode similar to this novel OK sarcasm and rant aside for a YA book that being basically Parental Guidance in reading it s not too bad I certainly have read young adult novels in the past and have found they don t always fit the stereotypical demographic of said genre this is a good thingNow you know how the book starts Liam O Connor is a deck hand on the sinking Titanic Maddy is about to be blown to bits in a aeroplane accident and little Sal is about to choke on a lollypop or something like that oh it s a subway accident silly me They all take Mr Foster up on his offer for a chance to escape their doom shortly afterwards well within ten pages they are fully fledged members and appointed Timerider awesome Well no not really I found it completely implausible Not the time machine part a guy from 1912 Liam is able to grasp the situation and changes so uickly This could just be me which is fine it s all subjectiveWhy do we need Timeriders Well by the year 2024 a theoretical paper is produced wherein the practical application of time travel is made possible By 2057 a time machine is made and a individual passes through into a different time The professor returns swearing to destroy his machine and all his work due to what he saw This was a bluff and sometime in the later future the machine is discovered by Paul Kramer and Karl Haas along with his tooting rooting killing machines OK marines These guys are the antagonists even though Mr Paul Kramer is just too nice for my liking By this point 2066 the world is dying and no longer able to sustain life Kramer decides to use the machine to go back in time and essentially change the future wherein he finds himself at the Wolf s Liar aka Wolfsschanze You might be able to guess where Alex Scarrow is going with this particular plot line schnell schnell man amerikanische idioten or words to that affectThe writing style is a little different for me Chapters flow with a maximum of three five pages which makes this a very fast read Prose is fairly basic in my opinion the story telling by Alex Scarrow is given to us straight out of the box this for me negates any future character development further on Essentially none of the characters do evolve other than Bob a cyborg who has a learning computer for a brain hopefully not from the Early Learning Centre though Which is kind of ironicI have a few other criticisms of the book If I have to hear what a smart lad Liam is one time I might have to visit the writer What is it with Liam s Irish accent None of them miss anyone from their old life Why wouldn t a agency such as this be prepared for changes in their own timeline Such things as fuel and internal power might help Food and water also This part just felt too convenientNow I feel like a dirty slutter for saying this I actually wanted to read but know I shouldn t I m going to give book two ago This one has dinosaurs in it apparently shudders

review Time RidersTime Riders

Alex Scarrow Ë 0 Summary Read Ð PDF, DOC, TXT or eBook Ë Alex Scarrow review Time Riders Ly appeared and said ‘Take my hand ’But Liam Maddy and Sal aren’t rescued They are recruited by an agency that no one knows exists with only one purpose to fix broken history Be. 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
