The Traveler’s Best Seller is a historical fiction novel written by Rick Incorvia. This book revolves around the life-ending journey of a history teacher named Tim Peregrine who is diagnosed with stage 4 lung cancer. This book contains sixteen chapters narrating about Tim Peregrine's experience about time travel and his battle against death.
Tim Peregrine is a divorced, middle-aged, high school history teacher. He has been diagnosed with stage 4 lung cancer. Tim wants to spend his last few days of life by inspiring his students and by changing his method of teaching. He accidentally finds a time travel company through which he meets Cleopatra, Mozart, and George Washington and narrates the students about his experience with them. The students enjoyed his new teaching style and Tim becomes popular among the students and teachers in the school. The rest of the story talks about how Tim Peregrine gets cured of his cancer.
The best part of the book is that it has a unique and interesting storyline. In this book, Tim Peregrine’s character was developed and layered well. The scenes relating to time travel were very realistic and interesting. The historical events were portrayed very beautifully by the author. I appreciate the author for providing the readers with information about historical events. I liked the climax of the story, the sudden twist in the story was unpredictable and quite interesting. Above all, I appreciate the author for providing important life lessons about death, love, self-esteem and self-confidence to the readers while narrating the journey of the protagonist.
Though, I enjoyed reading the book it failed to meet my expectation that it created in the beginning. The author could have added a lot of adventure to the story, taking advantage of the time travel concept. Few chapters in the book were very vague and lengthy which made it feel bored and lose interest in finishing the book.
I rate the book, The Traveler's Best Seller by Rick Incorvia 3 out of 4 stars as this book has not been professionally edited. There are too many typos in the book, some examples are “Ven” instead of “When” and “Dat” instead of “That”. There were too many grammatical and punctuation errors throughout the book which interrupted the flow of reading. This book requires another round of proofreading because of its editorial issues. I recommend this book to those people who are fighting against low self-esteem as this book will give insights about self-confidence.
