Official Review: Secrets of Time by Michael Bennett Wilson

Please use this sub-forum to discuss any fiction books or series that do not fit into one of the other categories. If the fiction book fits into one the other categories, please use that category instead.
Forum rules
While in the forum's younger and less active days this used to be the one and only forum for "reviews and discussions about specific books", this is now just the subforum "other fiction" in a more well-organized "reviews and discussions about specific books" section with subforums for each genre. Check it out! :) Remember, the forums in the reviews section (including this forum) are for posting about a single book or series in topic, and the topic title should include the book's title. If you are creating a new topic, please try to post it in one of the other genres rather than posting it here in the "other fiction" section. This is only for books that do not fit in any of the other genre categories we have listed.

I recently took a boat ride over a small portion of the open sea and can vividly identify with the huge wave raising its dragon-like head and looming over the craft! I'm already hooked on finding out why the boy was on the sea and whether he survived the ordeal. Great review!

That opening sentence would grab me, too. This book sounds really intricate, with loads of characters being looked after literally. I've put it on my to read list :)
Awesome review.

This is a wonderful review. I would like to read this book too soon. At times, it is the book that is slow-paced and focused mainly on character development that creates a bigger impact.

Thank you for such a thorough review! The suspense and action in this book sound like something I would enjoy. I like that you added your analysis of the book, describing the coming of age aspect and the enlightenment of a town.

I am interested in the title, but trying to read a novel is somewhat difficult for me though I'm trying to cope up. The story makes me want to read this book. Nice review

I like the story line already. The book seems intriguing though you highlighted of the flaws in style. I can see the book does not have that 'oomph' but it still sounds like a good read.
