    One thought on “Midlife Crisis

    1. Chip

      It's like a modern day "Christmas Carol" in November. Many what-ifs are explored (revenge, heroship, lust, lost youth, hitting it big, being a dad) and we get to living vicariously thru Kent and his trips to the past. Ayres creates a great character that explains what midlife should mean to us. His writing style is fun to read and done well. It is all connected to his other universe. I look forward to other LONGER books in this series.

      So there I was, slogging through a sci fi book that I really wasn't enjoying, it was dull, confusing, yet had won loads of awards and cost me close to six quid, when I get an email to say a new book had been released by Jason Ayres. Well obviously I immediately dumped the award winning nonsense I was reading (Ancillary Justice: 1 if you're interested) and grabbed a copy of this instead!I was following the author after trying out the Time Bubble books and I've really enjoyed all the books. Althou [...]

      SUCH FUNYes, we all either have or will have a mid-life crisis, the realization you are too old to take part in the Olympics or manage a mega company, and it comes as a shock to Richard to the extent when we first meet him he is about to jump off the roof of a parking garage. There is an element of fantasy in the book with the angel who offers him the chance to go back and relive days of his life, but I am always amazed at the detail that Ayres puts into his books (this is not the first one I’ [...]

      Another binge readI love Jason Ayres books, I've devoured each of them in one sitting. I love their nostalgia and his inventiveness of imagining life in the future. I love the everyday aspect of his futuristic worlds and the memories he evokes when reminiscing about the past. I'm from the same era and his books remind me of things I'd forgotten about 80s and 90s culture. His books make me think as he poses interesting questions such as picking days from the past to relive and imagining these has [...]

      Great story. Kept my attention from start to end I really enjoyed the book. Having read The Time Bubble series, it's wonderful to have more stories in that time frame and with some of the same characters. It reads quickly, and I'm starting the next one immediately. If you enjoy time travel books, then you need to read this author

      Enjoyable read. Probably the result of one of those conversations about where you would go if you could go back in time and what would you want to do differently. There's nothing really clever or imaginative about it but it's a fun topic. I may read Rock Bottom. And some of the others

      Another winner by Jason AyresForced into retirement, depressed, and thinking about "ending it all" Kent is offered a chance to relive six days of his life. Who could resist that. Not all is as you would expect.
