Loved the game, wanted to read the book.
The writing style is somewhat undeveloped, as if the author is not a native English speaker. And while the story was entertaining, at least one important thread (the possibility that the cataclysm was caused by the time travelers themselves, something hinted at in multiple places) was left unresolved at the end.
This book was one of the most entertaining books I have ever read. The character development is wonderful and you feel like you know these people quickly. The technical jargon can be confusing for those who don't normally read sci-fi books or watch sci-fi movies, but if you've ever seen a Terminator movie you'll be fine. This book keeps you interested even though there is not to much action in it. The book really makes you think about what could truly be possible if we ever could travel through time and how would we deal with that power.
