"not bad for a days work, not bad at all."
i chose this book because it was based in the 1970's and a lot of historical events happened such as the beatles breaking up and the womens liberation. so i was very curious. my favorite part of the book was when Miranda finally found out who the notes were coming from. in my opinion the book is very mysterious. some reasons why i like this book is because it had a great twisted ending and it kept me interested throughout the climax of the story.i would recommend this book to somebody who loves science and the idea of time travel.
overall i would rate this book a five out of five because it had great characters and a fantastic ending with a major twist.
