Time Quake by Linda Buckley-Archer


Buckley-Archer tells her tale with tremendous zest, narrative sophistication and an infectious sense of fun. Anyone with a modest grasp of modern history enjoys playing "what if?", especially about this revolutionary age, but her description of Luxon's men sobbing their loyal hearts out in a Manhattan cinema while watching Lord of the Rings suggests that she has the born storyteller's grasp of what is funny and fascinating. Like the immortal Nesbit, she has a fair stab at leavening two centuries of scientific discovery and political advances with sympathetically drawn characters, both child and adult. AMANDA CRAIG
