Eh.... So So.
Classic scifi moves at a different pace. What I liked about this book was the fact that it approaches the unknown with a sense of wonder (as opposed to today when most scifi treats the unknown as something dangerous or deadly). But it moves slowly, and the protaganist goes from punk kid to self-reliant time traveler way too quickly to be believable. Also, there is a real sense of "deux ex machina" in the writing - all those convenient conicidences! Not bad, but not great.

Interesting and different science fiction premise.
If you could sum up The Time Traders in three words, what would they be?
Definately different than most cookie cutter science fiction books. Very interesting premise spanning both the future, science fiction, and ancient history. At times the story kind of got lost in all the details of each time period, thus dragging it down a bit. Was very inexpensive for my Kindle so it was worth the price. Fantastic and fast moving in areas while in other areas slow moving and detail ridden.
Who was your favorite character and why?
What do you think the narrator could have done better?
He was fairly monotone and at times seemed to drone on and on.
Any additional comments?
Very interesting premise and mix of historical periods with futuristic periods of time.
