First Epiphany of the Time Vandal
First Epiphany Of The Time Vandal - Harry Bowling

by M.E. Bowling

 

I wasn't too sure of this one at first as it started out feeling more technical and uber spy than I usually like, but it drew me in enough to want to see what was going to happen.

 

My interest grew as it went along, drawing me into an intrigue where someone has stolen a time machine and curiosity of what he would do with it and why he took it. Interest waned again when he stayed in one place for a long time, interacting with local people. The intended point of his involvement with the time and place was revealed about halfway through, but that in itself disappointed me. It was an interesting idea, but not as well delivered as I could wish.

 

The real disappointment for me was that there wasn't a lot of time travel involved in the rest of the story. It became something else and wasn't what I had looked for in choosing this book to read. There were a couple of later jumps, but by then I was bored out of my mind and had started skimming.

 

The writing itself is fine and I didn't notice any mistakes, but the plot just didn't engage me. Perhaps someone else would love it.

24 Festive Task - Door 24: Epiphany/Twelve Night (Book)

Book: Read a book featuring three main characters, about traveling on a journey to a faraway place, a book that’s part of a trilogy, with a star on the cover, with the word “twelve” or “night” in the title, or concerning kings or spices.

 

I am choosing either Twelve Days or Twelve Years A Slave

24 Festive Tasks: Holiday Book Joker
Murder for Christmas: Tales of Seasonal Malice - David Birney,John Collier,Dorothy L. Sayers,John Standing,Margery Allingham,Stanley Ellin,Robert Culp,Marjorie Bowen,Paul Eddington,Agatha Christie,Ngaio Marsh, Arthur Conan Doyle
An English Christmas - John Julius Norwich,Various Authors

To round out the game, I'm going to use my two favorite anthologies among all the Christmas books I've listened to this month for the holiday book joker, and I'll use them for the Epiphany house blessing task (task 2), which feels appropriate for this day, and for Hogswatch task 2, as I (perhaps luckily) never had any encounters with department store Santas at all.

24 Festive Tasks: Door 24 - Epiphany, Task 1 (Favourite Trilogy)
The Lord of the Rings - J.R.R. Tolkien

 

I know Tolkien didn't actually intend this to be a trilogy, but that is how it has come to be published -- and it's occupied the spot that says "favorite trilogy" to me ever since I first read it in my early teens.

24 Festive Tasks Door 24 Task 1 my favourite trilogy

This was an easy question for me to answer.

 

Only one trilogy I've read has maintained the quality through all three books while continually deepened my understanding of the story's milieu and developing the main characters without losing sight of their history and initial motivations.

 

I give you...
