Fearlessly impossible, recklessly irreverent. Easy to get lost in an action-packed and socially debatable story of the clash of past and future events. A questioning story of the meaning of happiness. – Inkish Kingdoms

Every new book is an adventure that fills the reader’s heart with excitement. The reader is at the expectancy if the story in hand is going to be good, normal, hair-raising, or simply… boring. Happily enough, Chan delivers a simple but hooking novel full with hints on what the story is going to be about. Although I enjoyed it, I felt a bit confused, mainly because time traveling and the paradox of fixing the future or the present seems to be a difficult subject matter.

Complex but to the point. I find the story intriguing and imaginative. A story that lets you wander around time and space. Go, do, and create where and what you want and wish. The possibility of changing the present by fixing parts of the past is possible, and this is why playing with time creates paradoxes. If I cannot change the past but only alter the momentum of the present, I can change my present but that is someone’s past… which is impossible and forbidden.

The story has some really good theories and ideas of people, poverty, the pursuit of happiness, and that makes you wonder and discuss really what you are looking for, and if that concept is your idea of happiness or the idea that people have sold to you. This story opens the doors to the ballroom of possibility. I loved how the main character was able to get here and there based on her knowledge and reading habits.

The ending is not predictable to a 100% but one can guess in a major degree, part of the ending of the book. There are some gaps and loose ends, but it could be your own imagination trying to find answers for the unanswerable. The style is fine; however, the jump in events would be better with some transition to make it clearer for the reader. Sometimes, I found myself wondering what I was reading and in what moment the character was no longer in Kansas. The jump and time travel for the characters is sudden and out of the blue, and I understand why is done like this, but it can be better for the reader since there might too much confusion. It takes a while to adjust to the changes in time-space, and, once we get into the book, one starts to identify together with the character when the frog will jump.

The multiple elements of the book gave life to an imaginative storytelling that allowed the reader to enjoy the book. Although the landscapes that the author illustrates with his words are great, the ability to alter the present by avoiding violence in the past is incredible impossible and complicated to handle. This is a short book, less than 300 pages, that will keep you entertained for a while.


So, the kingdom has given this book:

3 coronas

It seems that your majesty is kind of pleased and the knights have spoken!

let'em eat cake
