The Time Hunters was the first book I bought on my Kindle and the first book I reviewed. So why am I revisiting it? Because Carl has issued a new and improved version.
As I understand, he's with JK Rowling's agents which is why there's a re-write and who knows where this fantastic book will get to.
Did I say the word "fantastic". Oh yes. This book is quite simply a fantastic read. When I heard this new version was available, I emailed Amazon to ask for the update and had it within a few hours. I have load of books I want to read, so I wasn't going to read it quite yet. But it was looking at me. I thought "just the first chapter". Oh dear. There's no such thing as "just a chapter". I finished it in two days. It's quite literally unputdownable (I only put it down as it was past midnight and I needed to sleep)
What are the differences? I'm not sure. I'd read it a year ago and I'm no good at remembering stories. All I can say is fantastic (again, lol)
This may technically be a children's story, but there's nothing childish about it. I also bought the book for my 8 year old nephew (apparently he's been reading Harry Potter with a torch under his duvet in the nights) and my sister-in-law asked was it suitable as Becky is a teenaged girl - I think she thought it might be another twilight type book. Well I can't think of anyone who this book wouldn't appeal to or be suitable for.
