I enjoyed the book; couldn't put it down! (Reserving the next two in the trilogy!) Still, could do without the swearing; one can express the same thoughts, without it.

This is a book I don't think I would have looked at if it had not been on a list I looked out. I'm glad I did because it was very interesting.

i liked it, i like time travel books... the end kind of reminded me of the move The Butterfly Effect

This was a pretty good read. It's about time travel, and througout the story, Jackson revisits his past several times to discover the reason behind his ability to time travel. This is the first part of a triolgy, and I'm sure I'm not alone when I say that I won't go out of my way to read the rest of the trilogy. I don't recommend this book for its confusing and inconsistent plot.
