“Bridge Through Time” immediately grabbed my attention. Alien contact! I fretted along with Max that he might have altered history with his time travel. The beginning of this story was a bit of a tease, however. I thought it would be about the aliens whom the author described in such vivid detail, but then the story focused more on the ADHD his sons Kyle and Peter suffered (mostly Kyle). After that it switched to Kyle’s point of view, as he dealt with his problem while managing to become a celebrated physicist. Don’t get me wrong, the aliens do make an occasional appearance and they are the force behind all the changes that take place in society, but they do so in the background and are more of the catalyst that gets the story moving forward.

The story has a deeper meaning as well. It delves into socio-political issues. Is saving millions of lives worth the cost of freedom? Are we so easily led that we’ll give up our ambitions and ability to govern ourselves for the price of entertainment? Plus the problem of ADHD in society and how to overcome it.

This is a well-written book that entertains from start to finish. It goes into the physics of parallel universes, but is not written beyond the comprehension of most readers. I’m sure it’s one that sci-fi fans and others will enjoy as well.

I received a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
