In The Pages of Time, Damian Knight gives us a solid, well-thought-out tale of time travel and suspense. After a traumatic brain injury gives our hero the ability to go back and forth along his own timeline and change things here and there, he discovers that not all choices are wise and some are even irreversible. I won’t give away much more, but I will say that this one reminded me a lot of the Butterfly Effect movies and was enjoyable for all of the same reasons.
There were no distracting grammar or spelling mistakes. The pace was a little slow and the stakes didn’t really build up until the climax itself, but Knight did build a rather believable world tapestry, which isn’t always easy to do with a time travel story. The main character is likable and relate-able as he experiences the effects of the tragedies and conspiracies that result from his decisions. Alas! He’s in way over his head.
I think you’ll like The Pages of Time and I happily recommend it.
