Bridge Of Time has a very original plot, but my favourite thing about it is that although time travelling is a common subject to write about, Lewis Buzbee has managed to paint over the old way it is written about and made me look at it in a whole fresh, new way. Although some points of this book contain gripping and enjoyable reading, I wouldn’t put it down as one of my favourites. Some parts in Bridge Of Time can be a little confusing, but if you read through them slowly, they become easier to understand. To summarise this, I would say that Bridge Of Time is quite exhilerating but also at times, what was happening seemed puzzling to me.
