Book Review-The Time Bubble-Jason Ayers

Friday, September 30, 2016

This book is interesting to say the least. I do love books involving time travel-but this is unlike any I've read. It is really the story of how it all began for 5 people and by the end--uh can't tell you-it would spoil it. This is the first book in a series of three. When you get to the end you may think that the story is finished-------I really do want to know what happens next---and maybe be told how that time bubble got there in the first place!

About the Book: (from Amazon)

Charlie and Josh’s interests were the same as most other teenagers: drinking, parties and girls. That was until the day they discovered the Time Bubble.

It starts at a bit of fun, jumping a few seconds into the future. Soon things take a more serious turn as the leaps in time increase in duration. When a teenage girl goes missing, and the police become involved, suspicion falls on Charlie. How can he explain where she is? Will anyone believe him?

As the long term dangers of the Bubble become clear, one man comes up with a solution – one that could hold the key to his own salvation.

Set in a small market town in Southern England in the early 21st century, this light-hearted time travel novel has plenty to delight readers of all ages.

This novel is the first part of a trilogy which continues with Global Cooling and concludes with Man Out Of Time.

About the Author: (from Amazon)

Jason Ayres began his writing career at Primary School in 1979 with a 94 chapter epic space adventure. It featured the exploits of Captain Jason who bore more than a passing resemblance to a famous starship captain of the era. Sadly, the plot was just getting going when his teacher firmly suggested that he try writing about something else.

Never one to let the creative sap rest for long, by the mid 1980's he was furiously scribbling down plays in "spare" exercise books liberated from the stationery cupboard. These plays starred his classmates and girls he fancied in a number of outrageous and libellous scenarios. The plays have now been placed securely under lock and key with strict instructions never to release them to the general public.

Unfortunately his budding aspirations as a writer were somewhat stifled in his twenties by an ill-advised fifteen year career in the Market Research industry. At this time, writing opportunities were somewhat limited by having to go to work every day. However he still found time to write numerous letters to various manufacturers advising them on their product ranges. He also produced many spoof newsletters for the countless activities that a social life based around the pub entailed.

Eventually he left the world of sales figures behind to become a stay-at-home dad, giving him a whole new source of material to write about. His first two humorous parenting diaries, "Fortysomething Father" and "Austerity Dad", were published in 2013. This was followed in 2014 by a third diary recording his experiences in the world of sausages. He also continued writing about his parenting experiences via a weekly column in the Oxford Mail.

In the summer of 2014, Jason released his first novel, "The Time Bubble", which was a huge hit both in the UK and the US, achieving the coveted #1 spot in the YA Time Travel category. The sequel, "Global Cooling" followed in November. The trilogy was completed in 2015 by "Man Out Of Time."

He has also released two spin-off novels related to the series. First came "My Tomorrow, Your Yesterday", the story of a man living his life backwards, one day at a time. His latest release is "Midlife Crisis" following a middle-aged man down on his luck who gets the chance to revisit his own past.

I have struggled to like some time travel books in the past. This book seems to be set between present and future if I am understanding you, which is far more appealing to me than present and past like the books I've seen in the past.

Aside from Dr. Who, Time travel tales don't always capture my interest. However, this sounds like a story worth exploring.

Now this is an interesting book for me. I have read very few novels with a time travel twist. This book, The Time Bubble is nice because it can be recommended for reading for a wide age group.
