Description

After a time-bending adventure, Ollie Finch was set to go home in his uncle's rocket car time machine when everything went sideways. He's at the center of a maelstrom of paradoxes that threatens to destroy the multiverse. Fortunately, Ollie's fellow time traveling friends might just help straighten things out: Teddy, the CPU-damaged cyborg assassin; Bax, the soldier from the post-apocalyptic future sent to stop Teddy's mission; Preston, the 19th-century inventor; Curtis, self-proclaimed Time Master; and Roxy, Ollie's scorned ex-girlfriend. Can this band of losers stop Phil, the world-conquering artificial intelligence... in time?

Reviews

BOOKLIST -- While traveling through time, Ollie accidentally starts a chain of events that threatens to unravel all of existence. Now his team of time travelers, composed of his jaded ex-girlfriend, a killer robot with the mentality of a toddler, and a twisted nineteenth-century inventor, have to undo the complex series of paradoxes they have set into motion. Time Share moves ridiculously fast, and there's little exposition along the way, so occasionally it's tough to keep up and understand what's going on. That said, the pace of the piece is made up for with the plethora of crazy settings and hilarious characters, which are easily the book's greatest strengths. This is genuinely funny stuff, packed with allusions and spoofs of nearly every sf staple, while clever one-liners and lewd jokes fill every page. Much like the action, the humor never lets up for a second. McDaid's dated character design and faded color imbues the work with a nostalgic, Silver Age comics vibe. A crazy ride, but one definitely worth taking.
