Book Review: In Times Like These by Nathan Van Coops

Book Review: In Times Like These by Nathan Van Coops


All the usual bells and whistles of time travelling ... and MORE. and Much More.


Nathan has touched upon time travel and its complexities at a level of detail that I have not seen before. He has spent quite some time on the mechanics of time travel and practicality / feasibility of it.


Fun is when you have the same person occupying the same timeline and same moment ... where one is unaware of the other while the other is watching out for the first so as not to bump into him. Fun increases when these two are in the same premise with a third one outside :)


Fun is also when a person exists in the timeline of his own childhood and comes face to face with himself :) ... and what if he decides to stay with the younger himself and not go back to his own time.


While these seem like spoilers for the story but trust me I am haven't spoiled the fun for you. Read the book (and the series) to enjoy time travel in a different light all together.


Nathan manages to weave a nice and complicated time travel story ... Good Job man. I thoroughly enjoyed this one and easily recommend it to anyone fascinated by sci-fi + time-travel !!

The Book cover is unimpressive and I wouldn't have picked up the book based on book cover. They coould have made a more impactful book cover which would entice readers to pick up the book and read the book blurb. Loses a part of the star rating for a poor book cover design.  

Rating: 4 / 5
