Fiction. Science Fiction. Thriller. "Amazing! One of the twistiest time-tales I've ever read ..."??Diana Gabaldon "Crichtonesque thrillers don't come much better than this intricate outing which combines a fantastic premise ... with a closed-circle whodunit. Readers won't be able to turn the pages fast enough."??Publishers Weekly, starred review PANGEA, 202,320,641 BC Quantum physicist Sam Anderson is trapped, 202 million years in the past. Sam has helped create a machine able to unpick the threads of spacetime, casting objects eternally into the past.

What a delicious mindf**k of a book, in the best way possible. ( )

This was SO GOOD!! I couldn't put it down! I love reading time travel books and this one had so many fascinating twists and turns. Nooo, I didn't quite understand some of the twisting...LOL....probably need to reread those sections. The writing just zips right along, every page a new happening. Riddle is a new author for me and I'm so happy to find him. ( )

About a ⅓ through the book, I felt that I was reading a Young Adult novel. The story is good and have some nice twists, but the writing lacks depth and development. It was a fast read and enjoyable nonetheless. ( )

2023 book #19. 2022. A company invents time travel and the best use for it they can think of is to send prisoners into the distant past, which once it's used causes a great reduction in crime. There's more to the story but it isn't worth the time it would write about it. ( )

First sentence: On the anniversary of his wife’s death, Sam Anderson visited her grave. It was a crisp spring morning in Nevada, with dew on the grass and fog rolling through the cemetery. In one hand, Sam carried a bouquet of flowers. In the other, he gripped his son’s hand. Ryan was eleven years old and strong-willed and introverted, like his mother. After her death, he had withdrawn, spending even more time alone, playing with LEGOs, reading, and generally avoiding life.

Premise/plot: Sam and Adeline Anderson find themselves in quite the mess. This father and daughter are suspects in a murder investigation. There is video evidence that they were the last [last to be seen, at least] to enter the victim's home. Nora and Sam were in a relationship together. Now Sam may just be exiled...forever...to save his daughter from being implicated as well.

Exiled means EXILED in Lost in Time. Criminals/prisoners are sent to the FAR, FAR, FAR, DISTANT past in an alternate universe. Convicts won't get the chance to appeal, they'll be alive as long as they can survive the elements: dinosaurs, earthquakes, volcanoes, meteors, etc.

What makes it worse for this father of two, is that he is one of SIX scientists who invented the Absolom time machine. It was meant to be a quick new way to "ship" stuff. They didn't know it was a time machine, but not a time machine to their own past, but a multi-verse time machine.

Adeline will do just about anything to save her father [after the fact] even if it means working/living with the enemy.

My thoughts: I loved, loved, loved, loved, crazy-loved this one. I wish I could find more science fiction like this one. For #lawnerds who also love sci-fi, especially time travel, this one is a dream read.

I enjoyed the complexity of this one. I loved the world-building and puzzle-building. All the pieces, all the clues, are there to be found. But it takes a while for everything to come together. (I was not expecting it to play out quite like it did.)

I really loved the characterization in this one. In particular, Adeline's character. She is our main narrator.... ( )
