I'm going to write a generic review of the series... I have read all of the books thus far and REALLY enjoyed them. The premise is quite interesting... although I am not one that has issues with suspending disbelief. Come on, it is a time travel novel... assume that there will be some disbelief to be suspended.The characters are good... not quite on par with some of the big name writers, but certainly well above average. Their depth could be increased, but they are 3D enough that they aren't distracting.The plots are what make the series shine. I love history, and the author delves deeply into things that are often glossed over... like the smells and dirt... And while I will admit that I'm not an expert, the story lines are quite plausible, given that we ARE talking about traveling in time.Overall, I would recommend EVERY book in the series. They are a lot of fun.
If your into time travel and a few unexpected twists this is the book for you, They are light reading but I truly could not put it down and when I was done I checked to see if in the last 24 hours he had written the next installment or told me about his next adventure, yes I have read all 8 books an look forward to many many more.
I've read all five, one after the other. I still love the series, however didn't enjoy the first mission as much as all the others. That is the only reason for 4, instead of 5 stars. Mr. McCauley redeemed himself, believe it or not, with the ghost story. I'm ready for book 6!!!
This series presents more interesting stories about the travels of members of the 1800's Club. The members of this group meet on various evenings for dinner and conversation. They dress and speak as if they were in the Civil War era. Now and again, people in the future notice that events in history have gone astray. They let the president of the 1800's Club know and he goes back or sends back a member who has the skills to correct the problem. I buy the next book in this series every time a new one comes out.
Good story of a club that goes back in time to fix things that went wrong. Said to be a real club. Time travel they make you think they did it.. I highly recommend the series hope more are to come out.
I really would like to travel in time. These books get me as close as I will get. The historic details are very informative and educational. The series reminds me of "Timeline" by Michael Crichton and the movie "Final Countdown". I have no complaints, these are just plain fun to read!!
I would recommend this set of books for all readers, Young and old alike.They were written in a stile that a young reader could read them or and older one. No bad language or sex to clutter the book but written in a way to keep you reading.
I thoroughly enjoyed this as well as all of the books in the 1800's Club series. They're easy reading and helps you to see parts of history that may not have been in the history books such as the colors, the smells, the NY skyline throughout the years...It also brought some insight as to those folks who affected history, but we've never heard about. The ancestors of current day (within the last 50 years) high profile people.One thing I would suggest - please have someone proof the e-copy for spelling/grammatical errors. Even though spell check may go over the whole document and the 'spelling' may be correct for certain words, that doesn't mean that that particular spelling is accurate in the context of a particular sentence.All in all - I have really enjoyed these books - they remind me somewhat of the movie 'The 13th Floor'.
