I must admit that time travel sirtoes usually make my brain hurt: I get caught up in the whole paradox issue and can’t focus on the story. Faces in Time doesn’t do that at all Aleman’s concept of time travel is logical, clearly explained, and unique. No paradoxes here: if you go back in time, there are now two of you, and your future self may just run into your past self. That’s what happens to Chester Fuze, and his past self is not at all happy about the appearance of another version of him. A character-driven action book is such a rare thing; most of the action sirtoes I’ve read lately barely delve into any sort of characterization. Not so with Faces in Time. These guys are complex and interesting yet they never bog the story down.The romance between Chester and Rhonda seems unlikely on the surface (a beautiful movie star interested in a somewhat dorky TV writer?), but Aleman’s characters are so believable that you won’t doubt for more than a split second. I was pleased at how realistic Rhonda was; Aleman gave her just the right amount of vulnerability without making her passive or boring.The secondary plot line kept me guessing until the very end. Usually I can see how things will tie together (probably a result of reading too many detective sirtoes), but this time I was taken completely by surprise. I love it when a book can do that!Faces in Time shows off Aleman’s talent with metaphors and descriptions, but the pace is faster and the tone is lighter than Cold Streak. The ending hints at the possibility of a sequel, while still tying together all of the loose pieces. It’s satisfying but leaves you wanting a bit more exactly how an ending should be.Fans of Aleman’s will be thrilled with his latest release, and those new to his writing will definitely want to check out Cold Streak for a darker, more metaphysical journey.
Faces in Time was an adventurous, fast paced, time trnivleag novel. At first I was a little confused with where the plot was going but then after a couple of chapters I was hooked. I enjoyed going through this journey with Chester. He was truly one of my favorite characters. I mean what guy would find a way to go back twenty years just to save a celebrity? Well, evidently Chester would. He was in love with Rhonda and didn’t want to see her make a mistake. I also loved the twists and turns because I wasn’t expecting them, so it was a nice shock. Lewis writes beautifully, his work is filled with great detailed descriptions and thought out characters who you easily fall in love with. I recommend this book if you’re looking for a great adventure. It was very creative and I haven’t seen anything out like it.
