Timewise, by Robert Leet, is a sci-fi thriller centered around mathematician Ron Larson. At a young age, Ron meets Regina Russo, a brilliant physicist, who tries to bring out his true potential and leads him towards his life’s passion. Ron immerses himself into his mentor’s world-changing plans for the future, and together they try to introduce a new meaning of the universe through time.
Timewise slowly but steadily builds Ron Larson’s character through the various stages of his life. This therefore allowed me to genuinely build my own opinions of him and gradually connect with Ron on a deeper level. As I started to read, I immediately noticed how well-written the imagery of the book flowed on the page, thus allowing you to get a full sense of Ron’s environment. Furthermore, Robert Leet allowed readers to feel the emotions and hardships of the protagonist, as he introduced new locations and new relationships throughout Ron’s life.
The most important attribute of this book was its character development. Every character in Timewise was absolutely phenomenal, keeping your attention until the very last word. Every time a new character was introduced, I could feel a little bit of their pain or happiness through their small but equally important backstories. I was able to immerse myself into Ron’s interactions with others, and again, I felt more connected to the protagonist. This element made the book stronger and more intriguing, as every single minor character had a part to play,
Furthermore, the author wrote Timewise in first person point-of-view. This allowed me to really feel and understand Ron’s thoughts and feelings in a more intimate way. The plot flowed effortlessly, as there were no errors whatsoever. The dialogue was smooth and efficient; however, some of the conversations that lead to the more academic side of the book, tended to be a little wordy.
All in all, I really enjoyed reading Timewise. The book has great depth to it and kept me interested the whole time. Timewise appeals to those who like real-life situations, combined with scientific nuances and a small amount of action packed moments. To those who fall asleep to physics lectures or wordy, academic conversations, then this will not appeal to you. I rate this book 4 out of 4 stars. My reason for this is because the author did an excellent job with connecting his readers to his characters, whilst providing descriptive scenery to keep you interested.
