    I really wanted to give this book three stars but I just can t To me itseemed like a case of a wonderful idea, sort of Jack Finney Meets JohnIrving, coming unfortunately to someone who just doesn t have the skill orthe ease to realize it effectively The writing itself is perfectly soundand literate, but for me the author didn t have the command to carry off hisridiculously complicated structure featuring multiple narrative lines,multiple time periods, and constantly changing angles of view, I really wanted to give this book three stars but I just can t To me itseemed like a case of a wonderful idea, sort of Jack Finney Meets JohnIrving, coming unfortunately to someone who just doesn t have the skill orthe ease to realize it effectively The writing itself is perfectly soundand literate, but for me the author didn t have the command to carry off hisridiculously complicated structure featuring multiple narrative lines,multiple time periods, and constantly changing angles of view, someobservational and some speculative and the language itself is almostcompletely without charm or color, which consid...

    Time travel tales, as intricate as they are, require a special touch, a unique understanding of cause and effect As such they are incredibly easy to write poorly and at the same time quite difficult to write well.There is a long tradition to the cyclical nature of these tales, beginning, arguably with Hans Christian Andersen s fairy tale, The Flying Trunk and continued a century later with Richard Matheson s Somewhere in Time in the 1970s and most recently with Audrey Niffenegger s The Time Tra Time travel tales, as intricate as they are, require a special touch, a unique understanding of cause and effect As such they are incredibly easy to write poorly and at the same time quite difficult to write well.There is a long tradition to the cyclical nature of these tales, beginning, arguably with Hans Christian Andersen s fairy tale, The Flying Trunk and continued a century later with Richard Matheson s Somewhere in Time in the 1970s and most recently with Audrey Niffenegger s The Time Traveler s Wife Over 30 years in the making, Selden Edwards The Little Book is a wonderful addition to the fine tradition of well written time travel The book reads like a puzzle, the reader starts with a collection of pieces and characters The Haze, Dilly, Wheeler, Weezie, and Flora all of which with d...

    This ambitious novel felt to me very much like Time and Again It had a few moments of repetition, a dash of pretention, and occasional predictability, but overall was an enchanting and fun escape from everyday life The story of Wheeler, former talented pitcher, former famous musician, and former bestselling author, who has suddenly appeared in the Austria of the 1890s There he runs into some people from his own personal history and discovers a vast amount of true history of his family and dur This ambitious novel felt to me very much like Time and Again It had a few moment...
