I was surprised at how much I liked this book. I'm not usually a big sci-fi fan. I have read eight of Michael Crichton's books and really enjoyed them, but have not read any other sci-fi until now. This book reminded me of a Michael Crichton book, and I mean that in the best way possible. The science parts of the book were very understandable and I didn't get bogged down in a bunch of science that I couldn't understand.
This book is about the Bermuda Triangle and time travel. I liked the futuristic setting and the characteristics of the future world were very believable and well-planned. This book had a really nice attention to detail, which really appealed to me.
I could tell that Stewart put a lot of time researching the science that this book is based on. I really appreciate that. I love a book that leaves me a little bit educated when I'm finished. Ken Follett books do that to a certain extent, and so did Through the Triangle. I am not a physics buff by any means, but the main character, Jake is a chemical engineer and he explains the scientific principles to the other characters in a very understandable way to the unknowing reader.
I liked the plot, the pace was fast, and I also liked the side love story. The conclusion was surprising, to say the least. I love a good surprise! The whole time I was reading this book, I kept saying to myself, "wow, I really like this." I'll definitely be reading more from CP Stewart in the future.
Just One Gripe:
Stewart does not describe any of his characters' physical attributes. This made it hard for me to "see" the characters in my head. All I had were their names, ages, and occupations---no idea of what they looked like.
The Best Thing About This Book:
I liked the quirky humor. "Oosa" is one example that made me laugh out loud.
No sex, but there are cannibals and murderers. However, nothing is too graphic so it's a toss up.
