"First Time: The Legend of Garison Fitch" by Samuel Ben White Book Review

First Time: The Legend of Garison Fitch

"What if history didn't happen that way ... the first time?"

Garison Fitch was one of the most revered scientists in the Soviet Americas until he left fame behind to work on a secret project in his log cabin in the mountains of Marx.

But something went wrong. Instead of traveling interdimentionally, Garison has traveled through time ... twice.

Now, he's in something called "The United States of America" and a woman he's never met before is calling herself his wife. It it a hoax? Or, has he somehow changed history?

If so, can he return the world to what he believes is "normal", or must he live in this strange world he created?

My rating: 5 of 5 stars
First of all, I am not normally a time travel fan.  I often avoid these books, but once in a while, I find myself enjoying a book in this genre.  "The Time Machine" is one of my favorite classic books, and this book is reminiscent of this story.  In other words, this time travel book is fantastic, and I highly recommend it.  The writing is phenomenal, and the story is absolutely intriguing.  The characterization is masterful, and I had to keep reading so I would know how it ended.  And I have to say the ending was a bit of a surprise to me.

The message of the book truly spoke to me.  So often, we think of someone doing something horrible and changing history for the worse.  I don't think of someone doing something good and changing history in an unbelievable way.  When the book began, I was confused by the history that was detailed.  In fact, I only understood about halfway through the book.  Then everything made sense, and I was completely captivated.

There is one more aspect to this book that was so refreshing.  While I cannot guarantee it, I tend to think that the author is a Christian or has Christian background.  It was neat to see the main character come to faith.  And it was so nice not to have a single inappropriate thing in the book.  No profanity, bad language nor loose morals!  I definitely want to read the other books in this series and by this author.

I was sent a copy of this book in exchange for my honest review.  I was not financially compensated, and all opinions are 100 percent mine.
