Are you ready to embark on a thrilling and unpredictable journey? Timewise will take you to places that you have never been to, including, the future. Ron and his longtime friend, Regina, a physics whiz, begin brainstorming and conducting experiments. Eventually, they create a time machine that changes the world as we know it. Not all is good and well in their world, however. With the FBI cracking down on them and experiments going wrong, they live in turmoil. Will Ron and Regina use their time machine for good? Or will it fall into the wrong hands?
I really enjoyed the characters in Timewise. The author, Robert Leet, created oddball characters instead of the basic, cookie-cutter versions found in most books. As a reader, you will meet many throughout the story. There is Ron, the main character, Louisa and Regina, just to name a few. Each character was very unique and quirky. For example, Louisa is an introvert that enjoys exploring unusual and abandoned places. Then there is Regina. She is a quantum physics nerd who’s thought processes and perspectives are undeniably eccentric.
Not only were the characters original but their development was superb. It was entertaining to experience the transformation of Ron. This book is his tale, which started with him as a teenager and ended many years later in adulthood. In the beginning, Ron lacked drive, motivation and didn’t have a single future goal. By the end, he was successful and talented.
I think it is fair to mention that there are a lot of physics lessons in this book. To be honest, most of them confused me. I am not a master of physics so it was hard for me to retain. With that said, Regina usually ended up explaining her lessons in layman’s terms. I noticed that some of Regina’s point of views made me start to see things from a different perspective.
The conclusion of Timewise was really unexpected. Although, I guess the entire book could be described as being so. That is what I liked most about this book. It was an unpredictable adventure from start to finish. With all of this said, I rate this book a 4 out of 4. Also, this book was professionally edited and I only noted two errors.
I would recommend this book to sci-fi fanatics or adults that have an interest in science. I would not recommend this book to young adults because I think the theories are very complex. As a side note, there is a little bit of sexual content in this book but it is not graphic.
