Book Review-The Dining and Social Club for Time Travellers, Book One: Divine Intervention-Elyse Kishimoto (Author),Doug Feaver (Illustrator)

Thursday, July 16, 2015


This book is definitively for young adults and even I enjoyed reading it. My only problem was I just could not pronounce the names of some of the characters in the book--but you can't go by me--some of the names in Harry Potter got me too. I think only kids can get these names! As in any good book the characters are well defined--both the good ones and the bad. Although you might think by the title of this book that there is a lot of time travel--not so much. It is more about Time Travelers themselves.

There are really nice illustrations throughout the book which give you an idea of what each Time Traveler looks like--The only reason I am going to tell parents to read this before handing it over is there are a couple of pages that describe in detail the methods used in olden times to interrogate people and they are not pretty!

This sounds like my kind of book, I'm loving the antique look of the cover. I had to laugh about not being able to pronounce the names. Some book character names are really out there aren't they? :)

Wouldn't that be the life if we could really be a Time Traveler? It would be very interesting to say the least.

This sounds interesting and something kids would like for sure. A little Back to the Future flavor in it. I would love to be a Time Traveler if just for a day.

I love reading YA books. They read so quickly and are usually really fun. When names are too hard though - it does get annoying.

I love the cover and the title is very intriguing. Thanks for the disclaimer for parents. Did you find the description was necessary and added to the story, or could be removed without changing anything crucial?

I laughed about the Harry Potter names. Some of those get to me too. I'd get this book for my teen. I bet she's love it! I might too... I like to read all kinds of genres, including YA
