As you will gather from the title, this book is about time travel. Told in the first person, chapters are interspersed with snippets from other sources such as newspaper articles, some fictional, some not. The author provides a handy guide at the end of the book to help you sort fact from fiction.
This book is what I characterize as a beach read. It’s enjoyable, breezy fun. You won’t be tripped up by vocabulary. You won’t be intellectually challenged, but given the Civil Rights Movement context of this novel, you might unexpectedly learn a little something.
In the end, the story both wraps up and leads you straight into the sequel.
BOTTOM LINE: A captivating fast-paced time travel novel. One in a series, but works well as a standalone.
I suppose what tended to lessen the enjoyment was the over-use, or, rather, the forced use of the f-word. Mind you, I’m no prude. Heck, I enjoy Stephen King and the late Elmore Leonard as much as anyone, but, in this story, with these characters, the word just didn’t strike me as authentic. It felt forced, almost...well, never mind. It simply didn’t work as well as it could have.
Actually, what I mean is this. Well into the story, there is a romantic scene that IS tastefully shown WITHOUT over-showing. This is a stimulating display that let’s us see.... Had the language been on par with the romance, I’d be rating it five stars.
A fun, if imperfect, novel with enjoyable characters worth my time.
Four stars out of five.

It ticks all the boxes: character, plot, settings, dialogue are all spot on. I love the era they travel back to and the complexity of the problems they solve. I'd highly recommend reading it.
This book REALLY filled the bill.
This book was okay. I love time travel and this book is time travel from the future to the 20th Century. The concept of an organisation of historians who investigate history through experiencing it was really interesting. I liked that each historian had a very specific topic they covered, such as religion, gender, or music from 1960's USA.
I didn't realise when I selected this book that it's a prequel to a whole series of books. As it was a prequel I didn't think it would matter too much that I haven't read the other books. However, I found myself feeling like I was missing the significance of people mentioned. There were a lot of name in this book - I was even struggling to keep track of Madi's family to be honest, never mind the time traveling historians or the people of historical significance!
I've put this book under "alternate history" but there wasn't a huge amount of "alternate" about it. Thanks to a plot McGuffin, we don't really get to see how things would look if various events of the 60's had been different.
Overall, this book was okay. An interesting premise, but very complicated to follow and loads of names!
