    Once again, I find myself in a poor position This book was an excellent one The problem is, this was supposedly a corrected edition, and yet, there wereerrors in every single chapter than I see in entire books on a regular basis The best one that actually made me laugh was the word planification.Seriously, I like this author s work, but the shear number of errors is incredible I even had to give up and edit the files at one point, just to remove some seriously irritating errors, just s Once again, I find myself in a poor position This book was an excellent one The problem is, this was supposedly a corrected edition, and yet, there wereerrors in every single chapter than I see in entire books on a regular basis The best one that actually made me laugh was the word planification.Seriously, I like this author s work, but the shear number of errors is incredible I even had to give up and edit the files at one point, just to remove some seriously irritating errors, just so I could read the damned thing.I strongly believe that if the author can get a decent it doesn t even have to be a good one, just a decent editor to go over this book, and fix as many of the verbiage problems, and the wrong verb tenses, as possible, this would be a book deserving of a science fiction award It s an excellent story, it s just been translated extremely poorly.I can t imagine there are too many scifi fans that wouldn t enjoy this one if it was cleaned up and presented in a proper manner Time travel is one of the mainstays of science fiction, and the story behind this one is really really good well, until it crossed over into the metaphysical anyway towards the end , and it s hard to find a really good time travel story that doesn t short itself on one or another time period during the telling, though I think this one does an admirable job of doing just that There are severalin the series, and I suppose I ll give them a look, but no matter how much I enjoy these tales, if the editing is as poorly done on the others as this first one was, I m not sure if I ll have the patience to read them all

    Michel Poulin is Canadian and his native language is French He claims to be fluent in English as well, but that s not really true he writes in English with French grammar Sentence structure in French is different to English verb placement is different, and often the tense is slightly different For me, this made the book harder to read than it should have been, and the book really needs a good editor, which I understand is not likely to happen as Poulin self publishes and releases his book Michel Poulin is Canadian and his native language is French He claims to be fluent in English as well, but that s not really true he writes in English with French grammar Sentence structure in French is different to English verb placement is different, and often the tense is slightly different For me, this made the book harder to read than it should have been, and the book really needs a good editor, which I understand is not likely to happen as Poulin self publishes and releases his books for free.This is another tale of modern technology being introduced into World War II, which has certainly been done before, but Poulin provides a muchlimited exposure than either Harry Turtledove or John Birmingham did in their books Codename Athena is generally well written, and pretty easy to read grammatical problems aside , but the characters aren t very nuanced, although they re not two dimensional.This is the first book in a seven book series, but I haven t decided if my interest in time travel alternate history a genre I usually enjoy will overcome the irritation I know I will feel due to the translation issues

    Absorbing book particularly interesting mix of time travel of the main character Nancy Laplante mainly in the early part of WW2, the present and the future in 3300 CE Very readable with a good and interesting plot, well worth reading.
