Review: The Tunnel by Josh Anderson
Josh Anderson’s “The Tunnel” is Book 1 of the Time of Death series for young adults. Time travel is via a “silk blot” which is a really original method of time travel, providing an entrance (and exit) to a tunnel complete with ladders and rungs marking the year. Lots of interesting threads, but sadly there’s no closure, just a “To be continued…”.
Review: Bridgevine by John Feldman
Bridgevine (John Feldman) is a very easy read with a simple plot involving time travel, but obvious time travel questions are ignored rather than left open. Repetition and over explanation, plus an immature main character lead me to believe this is a novel aimed at young adults or to be taken on holiday. On the positive side there are some nice examples of how and why a time machine can be used.
