Untimed - Review

Charlie’s the kind of boy that no one notices. Hell, even his own mother can’t remember his name. And girls? The invisible man gets more dates.
As if that weren’t enough, when a mysterious clockwork man tries to kill him in modern day Philadelphia, and they tumble through a hole into 1725 London, Charlie realizes even the laws of time don’t take him seriously.
Still, this isn’t all bad. In fact, there’s this girl, another time traveler, who not only remembers his name, but might even like him! Unfortunately, Yvaine carries more than her share of baggage: like a baby boy and at least two ex-boyfriends! One’s famous, the other’s murderous, and Charlie doesn’t know who is the bigger problem.
When one kills the other — and the other is nineteen year-old Ben Franklin — things get really crazy. Can their relationship survive? Can the future? Charlie and Yvaine are time travelers, they can fix this — theoretically — but the rules are complicated and the stakes are history as we know it.
And there's one more wrinkle: he can only travel into the past, and she can only travel into the future!


Time travel and evil clockwork robots?
Fun!

Rips in the space-time continuum?

Awesome!

Time rules that are so amazing you'll yell out: " Yes that so makes sense!"?
Yes!

This story takes you somewhere and I don't just mean on the adventure that Charlie goes on or even that place any good book can take you.
I mean that place where any time travel fan would love to go.
Where everything can be twisted around and we accept it without question.
{Well those few time travel fans that don't question  every little thing, don't get me started on those that do.}
