Loved it! Started out a bit slow, but eventually it kept getting more & more interesting until finally I couldn't put it down. Can't wait for the sequel!!!

A very good book. It was interesting and mostly held my attention. I felt like the middle section was a little bland but a great book. The end honestly felt rushed but I really enjoyed my read through. I look forward to reading the second book, however the dinosaur theme makes me a little cautious of cheesiness. Then again, the Jurassic Park books were good so who knows.

personally i think it makes no sense a portal?!!!!!!!!!!!! anyone who does their research knows to achieve at least light speed(time travel requires faster than light speeds) the object must include photons its imaginative but not very realistic

This was actually a pretty good adventure book. It was a time based book, meaning it was dealing with time and how it was getting messed up. I'm totally into that kinda stuff so I really enjoyed this book. I'll give it a 9.5/10, very good.

Time travel is a pretty interesting thing. So is history. This book has both of those. I was amazed at the number of historical references in this book. I don't know if I can even list them all, but I'll try. The Titanic. World War II. September 11, 2001. JFK's assassination. Being interested in all these things, I had to get my hands on this book. The thought of New York City, 2001, being all Germanic seemed like an interesting concept.

So, this was a good book, I guess, but I found it difficult to get through. Truthfully, I don't think it's my thing. It sort of dragged. The writing was kind of boring. The story was really predictable. It's the first in a series, but it didn't make me want to read the rest of the books. It was just okay. I guess I'm not the type for this kind of book. Other people might like it. There's some merit to it. I did love the history in it. I just didn't like the story that much.

I just finished this one and I was very impressed by it. It was a very well put together story involving time travel (which I love) and it all made sense it the end, unlike some. With 92 chapters it might sound big, but each chapter is not that long so you can read a lot in a little while. Overall I really liked this book and I'm reading the second one right now and looking forward to the third one. For this one, I'm giving it a 9/10, very good. Check it out.
