Everything happen to quick and resolved to easily. Did no one ever told me that high expectations are only meant to crush my heart? I enjoyed the introduction of Lisa, an old high school friend of Marion. She was feisty, smart, and strong, which I really appreciate. Not to mention that he ignored her half this story and then he just believed in half the page all she had to say. Still, she felt her heartbeat quicken as she looked up, secretly hoping that Philip Walker might be somewhere among her classmates. Only to go back to her time and see him standing in her time soil and at her school no less.
Although I wished they'd been longer, you still get wonderful descriptions of places, people and activities in older times. I loved Timeless, the first book in the series. Just as her father sought to destroy my life and took your daughter from you, Michele too is leaving carnage in her wake. It would have been drastically better if you needed both, The Gene and The Key, The Key just tapped in to your powers and activated them. I do not understand how Michele can be so obsessed with Phillip while she has this threat hanging around her and her family.
For example, Lisa was mentioned once in the book when Michele had to go to her for help. Even though the book is only 184 pages it feels long and the ending is kind of forgetful. How is it possible that Philip is here now? Non-librarians are welcome to join the group as well, to A place where all Goodreads members can work together to improve the Goodreads book catalog. I wanted to find some related events that could leave me in awe, you know. Yes, it was interesting but I think it felt short. There were there for the sake of being there.
She got what she deserved!! Alexandra currently lives in Los Angeles with her husband and newborn son. It was over way to fast, and it was kind of a too-easy solution to the problem, if you understand what I mean. She had a feeling the stares and whispers were going to follow her even more than usual. Everything about Philip is exactly like the guy she fell in love with in the first book, right down to his name. She was so consumed with her jealousy and hate and heartbreak that its no wonder she did what she did : I feel that this story could I have been waiting for this sequel for forever and I'm imagining all this constant time travel of Michele and I am soooo happy that she and Philip finally find their way back to each other in her own time. It was a really good continuation to the series, and more compl Rating: 4. No, what I loved was the historical aspect - because there was just something magical about the way Alexandra Monir handled Michele's story as she explores a century's worth of her family's, and by extension New York's, history.
As an avid fan of Doctor Who, I love time travel stories and Timeless definitely wow-ed me in that sense. One second she would say one thing and the other she would mention another, she kept on jumping from idea to idea never telling us enough about what she was talking about. So why do you need the Gene? And to make matters worse, there's someone lurking in the shadows. So I cannot fully rate this a 5 star, maybe around 4. It was over way to fast, and it was kind of a too-easy solution to the problem, if you understand what I mean. I still want to see more adventures of Michele and Philip across time. I love a good happily ever after story.
And that evil Rebecca just give me the shivers! She peered through her fingers, and he was still there— Philip. Because sure, Michele does more time traveling and revisits some of the same time periods she's been to before, but that spark from the first time, like Monir had this meticulously researched plan that brought all these different periods, the end of the Gilded Age, the Roaring Twenties, the Second World War, to life, well, that spark's gone. I was sure that Monir will surely tell it all, but I sat up myself for a tragedy, a solution that comes with a hitch. Because sometimes I just feel the need to smash my keyboard over my head trying to find the perfect words to describe a story and my feelings for it, but sometimes I do the same only trying to understand what in the world was missing that made me not love it as much as I hoped. He looks through me, his expression unfazed and innocent--and it's that ambivalence that cuts like a knife. She was so consumed with her jealousy and hate and heartbreak that its no wonder she did what she did : I feel that this story could have been longer, maybe develop more to a more intricate plot.
The first book had so much charm, but I could not find it in this book. I want this book right now. Waiting is something we all have to do for a series. And now I hate myself for making comparisons between the 2 books, as it is not really fair. Philip lives in 1910 and it's 2010. He is the love she thought she lost forever when they said goodbye during her time travels last century. It started to frustrate me after a couple of chapters and is the main reason why I will not give this book a higher rating.
I need to know what happens to one of my favorite male love-interests, Phillip, noww! He stood above her, his face creased with concern. Stories about time-crossed lovers and time traveling really piques my interest. I loved Timeless because it was atmospheric, it was exciting, it made the history literally come alive, but this time around, I just can't say the same. Despite the fact that I missed the first book, I absolutely loved this one. That was the night when you were seen dancing with Philip Walker, by the very Timekeeper who had become friends with Irving all those years ago, the girl who helped prepare him for the 1990s.
He is the love she thought she lost forever when they said goodbye during her time travels last century. Not just hurt her, kill her and if necessary will also hurt Michele's family. Philip has no recollection of who Michele is, nor that they love each other. Then you have Rebecca Windsor the spoiled evil daughter of the Windsor family and Michele's father's arch nemesis who would stop at nothing to wipe out Michele's existence. Monir begins by giving a short recap. I'm so excited- this is the biggest book festival of its kind in the U.
And, in fact, I think that this book is actually better than Timeless. I've waited for this book for so long, wishing for it to be mind-blowing, full of twits and mystery and magical history and so I got to read it and then. The problem is that he doesn't remember who she is or anything about 1910. There are just too many thing's going on at the same time that you will feel a bit exhausted after each chapter. One person cannot physically exist in two different bodies in the same Time and place. Since I'm still writing, the book is a year or so away from publication- but I'm working hard to make it Hi Asher! I felt as though the excerpts and the entries took away too much pages.
