There are some genres that I just don t go near Not because they are bad necessarily but because every time I try and read anything set in that timeplacestyle I end up bored to tears For example There s just something about the 1800 s that I can t stand being immersed in somehow I just do not care So that knocks out the possibility of me enjoying anything vaguely Regency or Victorian I had to look up those terms to double check I m on the right track I wish I knew why I really do The closest I ve ever come to enjoying it is in Libba Bray s A Great and Terrible Beauty trilogy though I don t know if those books count what with all the magic and underlying supernatural horror aspects So anyway 1800 s are out that s one star off the book for no fault of its ownUnfortunately another do not touch for me though less extreme is time travel Occasionally it works but such a book has to be extraordinarily well written to get me hooked I do however keep testing these dislikes certain that one day I ll find the book to prove me wrong The River of No Return Yeah it isn t that bookStrangely this is the second I ve picked up in the past few months that hooked me with the cover and title then turned out to be recentish era historical fiction I really need to stop inflicting this on myselfI m not being entirely unfair I don t think Putting aside finally you must be thinking my personal preferences there are plenty of other reasons why this is nowhere near even a four star read and for me probably closer to 25 At least this one wasn t as terribly written as Into the Dim so I ll give it that However it was still pretty predictable far too long with very little happening filled with vaguely unlikeablecookie cutter characters had an unfortunate case of instalove and just as things finally got going seemed to fizzle off in the last 10 pages to end on well nothing really Other than that it s all perfectly adeuate and I manage to finish without too many eye rollsIf you like time travel and the 1800 s and dashing lords and swooning ladies then this book is totally for you As for me Well next time I decide to try my hand at time travelling throw me back to the Greeks who knows maybe I ll have a better timeUpdate The fact that I can remember absolutely nothing about this book to the point of thinking oooh what a pretty name perhaps I should add it to the to read lis before seeing that I d even left a review of the thing probably sums it up for me even than that initial review does

At the point of death on a Napoleonic battlefield Nicholas Falcott finds himself jumping forward in time nearly 200 years and in the care of an organisation called The Guild He doesn t know how he got there just that he can never go back However after 10 years in the modern world he is told that he must do just that and that the future of the world depends on itThe cover blurb of The River of No Return compares it to The Time Traveller s Wife but as I m the only person in the Western hemisphere who hasn t read that it didn t give me any clue to what this novel might be about I m not really a reader of fantasy or sci fi ie anything with time travel in it though I m always happy to expand the genres I read but I m a huge fan of Doctor Who so I m obviously not against a bit a lot of time travelling in fiction Again on the Doctor Who theme I m always up for a bit of reuited or unreuited love across the eons I also read a lot of chick lit although I don t really like calling it that so have nothing against a good love storyAll this meant I was keen to read this doorstop of a book and I enjoyed the first few chapters but found that my interest waned after that The ideas were interesting but I didn t feel that the characters drew me in sufficiently and I thought pacing was a problem Some sections felt like wading through treacle with endless passages of people sitting round discussing the ins and outs of time travel and what time travellers can and can t do I understand that sometimes a writer has to do this kind of thing when trying to convey complex concepts but there was just too much of it to be interesting The longueurs are interspersed with periods of feverish action which can seem overdone in the context of the rest of the bookI didn t feel that any of the characters were particularly well drawn and some were just walking stereotypes The 19th century female characters just felt like modern women dropped into that era they didn t behave as I would expect from my readings of novels of the time and this had the result of eroding my trust in the author to know what she was doingThere was also an irritating uirk of placing small almost subliminal clues in the modern part of the book to trigger recognition in the reader that we re in contemporary London A couple of examples of this was the inclusion of The Shard and ads on the side of taxis for The Book of Mormon musical which hasn t yet opened at the time I write this I found this unnecessary and annoying rather than helpful so it just made me crossIn the same way that many current films are too long I felt this novel went on and on and on It would have been a sharper involving read had it been shorter More is not necessarily better and a comprehensive cull of much of the sitting round discussing time travel would have made it enjoyableThere s also the issue of the presumably forthcoming seuel and having to leave enough loose ends to facilitate this Does every novel now have to be part of a trilogy Can we not have stand alone books complete worlds in themselves which we can read and put down totally satisfied without having to wait for the next adventures of the characters Trilogies are getting out of hand now for the love of God please stop itI felt like there was a good shorter book trying to fight its way out of The River Of No Return but sadly it failed leaving me with a novel that had some good ideas but that I didn t enjoy as much as I hoped I would
