Confusing Timelines in Crossings | Book Review


Rating: 4 out of 5.

I’m making an executive decision that this book is too brilliantly complicated to review.

Genre: Historical Fiction, Sci-Fi
Author: Alex Landragin
Published: May 2019
Publisher: Picador
Pages: 384 (paperback)

In a (non-spoilery) nutshell
This book can be read two ways. The first, by starting at page one and proceeding until you reach the end.

The second, by starting somewhere around page 150 and following the “Baroness” order and reading it much like a choose-your-own-adventure book.

Obviously I read it the second way, I’m not boring.

It’s complicated. It takes effort to hold the stories in your mind and connect the dots. And it’s probably worth rereading.

But ultimately, it’s a truly fascinating story about two people who swap souls with two other people. And then spend the rest of the story muddled in chaos that we try to untangle.

I warn you though, whilst it is exhilarating and bamboozling, it is dark too. Eyeballs are removed, people die and the threat of Nazis looms.

Good luck.

Grab a copy!
