Présentation de l'éditeur

Untimed is an action-packed time travel novel by Andy Gavin, author of The Darkening Dream and creator of Crash Bandicoot and Jak & Daxter.

Charlie’s the kind of boy that no one notices. Hell, his own mother can’t remember his name. So when a mysterious clockwork man tries to kill him in modern day Philadelphia, and they tumble through a hole into 1725 London, Charlie realizes even the laws of time don’t take him seriously. Still, this isn’t all bad. Who needs school when you can learn about history first hand, like from Ben Franklin himself. And there’s this girl… Yvaine… another time traveler. All good. Except for the rules: boys only travel into the past and girls only into the future. And the baggage: Yvaine’s got a baby boy and more than her share of ex-boyfriends. Still, even if they screw up history — like accidentally let the founding father be killed — they can just time travel and fix it, right? But the future they return to is nothing like Charlie remembers. To set things right, he and his scrappy new girlfriend will have to race across the centuries, battling murderous machines from the future, jealous lovers, reluctant parents, and time itself.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Unique characters, engaging plot make this YA time travel a MUST READ! 20 décembre 2012
Par Timiosanthos - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
Andy Gavin has fast become one of my favorite authors. I loved his first book, the dark fantasy The Darkening Dream, and I think I love Untimed even more. This is the first book in a new YA Time Travel series, and the premise and characters are so intriguing and unique, I couldn't help but fall in love.

Charlie is a fascinating character. He doesn't know how special he is at the beginning of this book, all he knows is that no one can remember his name, not even his own mother! The only exceptions are his father and his aunt, both of whom lead unusual lives and travel often. Charlie has been studying history his whole life, but he never imagined he'd be living it until he's chased through a hole in time, right into 1725 London. Stuck in the past, Charlie finally meets a girl who actually remembers him; another time traveler like himself. Problem is, she has some baggage. Namely, a baby and two boyfriends--one of whom wants to kill Charlie, and the other none other than Benjamin Franklin. If you've ever wondered what the world would look like now had Ben Franklin met an untimely death, Gavin answers that question.

I don't want to spoil anything, but this romp through the past is action-packed, thought provoking, romantic and fun. You also don't want to miss the extraordinary black and white illustrations throughout this book that just brought the whole thing to life. And check out the cover. AMAZING! But I wouldn't expect anything less from the man who also created the video games Jak & Daxter and Crash Bandicoot.

All I can say is, write faster Andy Gavin. I'm dying to know what happens next with both your series! :)

"Untimed" is the story of a boy named Charlie, who happens to be the son of a time traveler- only he has no idea. He lives with his mother and mysterious father in modern day Philadelphia; the year 2011. He spends most of his life being invisible to his peers: his mother needs a post-it to remember his name, his teachers act as though everyday is their first day meeting him, and the girl next door who spent every fourth of July with him has no idea he exists. That is, until one day, he finds himself in 1700s London and he comes across a young pick pocket named Yvaine who can remember his name- because she is a time traveler too.

There are a lot of sources of tension in this novel as it deals with questions of re-writing history and the effects of altering specific timelines. We are taken to a time when the famous Benjamin Franklin is young and has no knowledge of the great things he is supposed to do. And then we are taken through a future in which America loses the Revolutionary War and the Brits are everywhere. However, one of the more interesting facets of this novel was the way in which the author built his rules of time travel in this world. For example, time would fill in "ghosts" of the time travelers when they jumped, and they would always be equipped with what they needed. They have the clothes of the time, the accessories of the time, and the language of the time. There were limitations to how often they could jump and to where they could jump.

These limitations were particularly noteworthy in regard to Yvaine and Charlie's romantic relationship. Girls can only push themselves up through time and boys can only pull themselves down through time. And some of what seemed to be allusions to sexual tensions were unexpected, which is different compared to generic teen romance.

The author addressed an interesting question of what modern times would be like, particularly for us Americans, if we had not won the war on Independence. However, I think I would have liked to see a few more jumps through time to different places as Charlie came to figure out how his time travel ability worked. Andy Gavin built a good foundation for this book series with "Untimed" and I think those readers who enjoy stories about time travel and history, and specifically many plot twists, will find this to be an entertaining read.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 A Must Read! 21 décembre 2012

Utterly and completely amazing! I love this book! When is the next one coming out because I want it NOW, NOW, NOW! Andy weaves a tale that is original, unique and well-written! The man holds up to his amazing contributions to the Gaming world and now adds gems to the literary one!

The book is full of action and adventure. Andy's characters have well developed arcs, you can see them grow and change as the story goes one on. I absolutely LOVE Yvaine! I can see how her ma told her she was full of piss and vinegar. Charlie is a total trooper about his misadventures, I'm not sure how I would handle any of that.

Andy's world is very detailed and it's clear he did his research. I love all of the fine details he puts in and then how he manipulates them as the story progresses. And Time-Quakes! What an awesome idea. Since I read this before The Darkening Dream, I can't comment on it in relation to his other works' although my review for DD will be up before this one, I can only imagine it is just as good!

I highly recommend this book. Everyone read it. LOVE IT. It is a must!

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Great story!! 21 décembre 2012

Untimed is awesome! Time travel is such an awesome concept, and Andy does it right. This book mixes fun and excitement with science and history, and it all makes sense! The story is told through the eyes of Charlie, a coming-of-age time traveler. He is a very likeable character and a joy to share the adventure with. The main villain is awesome as well. He's a terminator-like clock man that can also travel through time, and his mission is to kill all time travelers!
Untimed is a great read filled with a lot of originality, making it interesting and fun. Before you know it, you're at the end wanting more! I hope Andy continues the series...
I would definitely recommend this book to anyone!

I don’t get many opportunities to read a sci-fi book with an added steampunk bonus, so this was an amazing experience! The character development was great from beginning to end. The main characters – Charlie and Yvainne (how do you pronounce her name?) – grow up throughout each chapter; I always learned something about them that made me love them even more. Both of them together really made this book complete. I really felt a connection to them; they were easy to connect to. I didn’t feel like the romance portion of the novel overtook the plot at all. It was a nice mix of everything, and it never felt like a forced relationship.

The plotline was… wow. Just wow. Awe-inspiring? Addicting? Fabulous? Never wanting it to end? Yes, those words fit perfectly. It’s a time travel book that I hadn’t seen anywhere else. It’s very different and distinctive, both qualities drew me in. I never felt lost or like something wasn’t connecting. Sometimes, in time travel books there’s an aspect that you say, “wait… if that character did X then how did Y happen?” The reader will not get that feeling with Untimed. I was glued to every page; I did not want the book to end! The uniqueness, writing, growth, and romance aspect was a huge plus. All around, I have to say I’m going to probably re-read it two or three times.

*Received this book for review, this in no way affected my review*
