    1. After a childhood tragedy, Al, with his best friend Nick, devotes his life to building a time machine. Will they destroy the universe in the attempt?I've had my eye on the Time Eaters for a long time. When Perpetual Motion Machine Press announced their ninety-nine cents sale, I decided it was time.Time Eaters is a cautionary tale about the dangers of time travel. In this case, the dangers of time travel are time paradoxes and ravenous cannibal time travelers. Al and Nick, best friends, encounter [...]

    2. BeforeI was reading a paperback copy of George Orwell’s – Down and out in Paris and London, but left it at home when I went to work. Luckily, I had a copy of Jay Wilburn’s - Time Eaters on my IPad, which I purchased from ’s Kindle store and during my break, I started to read his story.ThenI didn’t pick up Orwell again until after I had finished reading Time Eaters.The story is primarily concerned with Al, who, after his father’s suicide, attempts to build a time machine in the hope h [...]

    3. I snagged a copy of this from Netgalley and it was interesting for a bit and then seemed a drag a bit. It's one of those novels that borrows a lot from other genres but stays original. The premise itself is interesting, but as it nears its conclusion it just becomes a bit boring. This is a book in which you have to pay attention. If you lose track or fail to pay attention then you're going to be hopelessly lost. It goes into two time frames, Before and after and these are essential to the storie [...]

    4. What a ridiculous and engrossing story! Time travel stories have long been among my favorites, but this one is possibly more mind-bending, and certainly more bloody and cringe-inducing, than any I've encountered. To be quite honest, I struggled at times to keep the threads of the various parts of the story straight,what with all the multiple trips into the past and all, but the payoff is well worth the effort. I really don't want to spoil anything about the story, but if you've read the blurb yo [...]

    5. This book was on my want to read list for ages. I found the hard copy to be too expensive but finally bought a Kindle and was able to download the ebook. I was so dissapointed.I thought this would be an interesting time travel story about a man trying to prevent the suiside of is his father through time travel. I was thinking possible heartwarming but more of an adventure. I suppose you could say this was an adventure. The book starts off strong and then just seems to loop into similar story lin [...]

    6. For anyone who has ever had the notion of how much their lives could be improved if they could just go back to a key moment and do things differently, this book should show how crazy that is. This story is incredibly complex and multilayered and as it's fairly short, I would advise reading it in one session, if you can. It can be hard to follow along with at times so you really need to be ready to engage. I may actually keep this in my to-read pile since I suspect that a second reading would be [...]

    7. I tried to read this book several times after seeing that it has been compared to greats such as George Orwell and Aldous Huxley. I persevered, but eventually admitted defeat 3/4 of the way in. The premise was good, but it just didn't sustain my interest and was nothing as enlightening as the book was made out to be. I skipped to the end, which was predictable.
