The String Rider by John Espie (Book Review #1020)


The string rider is a beautiful story about Trevor, who happens to travel 20 years in the future by clicking on a device button his girlfriend Rubie insists on trying on. Trevor’s initial plan is just to grab a lottery ticket and travel back. He only has two hours, so he has to rush; however, he notices some changes and his old self while he is there. Things aren’t the same when he returns.

Rating: 4 out of 5.

He not only has forgotten the lottery ticket, his girlfriend realizes that the device works. There is a catch, though, and that is the effects of coming back come with his heart-stopping. I found the story to be really enjoyable to read. I didn’t want to stop. Trevor’s character kept developing, and his want to change his future now that he knew how good it could be was lovely to see.

I have read and seen many movies discussing time travel whereby going backwards or forwards, you change the narrative of your own life, and for this reason, the concept of the storyline wasn’t novel to me. Yet, Trevor’s personality really pulled the story together. I liked the added twists to the story and really lost myself in the book.

I recommend this story to anyone who likes to read stories about time travel.
