There is a flash of light. Next thing 18-year-olds Taylor and Sheridan know, they are 400 years in the future. How did they get there? What is up with the English language? Who the hell is Tyler Sherwood?
I was hooked on page 1. From the very first sentence [“It was as good a day as any to plan a treason.”] it became practically impossible to put down. I am not going to deny the fact that I am guilty of reading this during geometry class (yuck) and at 5:30 in the morning (yeah, I don’t know why I was up that early either).
Everyone that can rightfully call themselves a futuristic-fiction author somehow manages to keep their visions of the coming days different from each other. There’s the “OMG I’M GUNNA DIE” such as Suzanne Collins’s The Hunger Games, the “Our Social Order Is Even More Twisted” like in Divergent (Veronica Roth), and my personal favorite the “BBC Special” which is easily seen in Across the Universe by Beth Revis. Erasing Time has little snippets of all of the above as well as a few jaw droppers that feel like something Sara Shepard would write. The fangirl-o-meter nearly explodes.
The way future folks talk about our time is both eyebrow raising and giggle inducing. Apparently we are flesh eating gibberish speakers that worship Santa Claus.
Yeah, ’nuff said.
Liked Erasing Time? You might also enjoy…
