How to Stop Time Review Ñ 2 Matt Haig É 2 Characters Review How to Stop Time The first rule is that you don't fall in love ' he said 'There are other rules too but that is the main one No falling in love No staying in love No daydreaming of love If you stick to this you will just about be okay' A love story across the ages and for the ages about a man lost in time the woman who could save him and the lifetimes it can take to learn how to liveTom Hazard has a dangerous secret He may look like an ordinary 41 year old but owing to a rare condition he's been alive for centuries Tom. This is my second book by Matt Haig and to be honest it s probably going to be my last Everything from his writing style to his characters to his lack of plot doesn t seem to be working for meHow to Stop Time is about Tom Hazard who looks like your average forty something guy but actually has a rare condition that makes him age slower than the average human So he s around five hundred years old Wow sounds interesting Right Except that s kinda it There s very little story or forward momentum beyond thatTom spends the whole book wallowing in self pity over having been alive so long and having to abide by the rules of the Albatross Society a group for people like him He constantly churns out cliches about how everything changes but nothing changes which is said over and over again in different ways He s so whiny and self absorbed And if you think it s going to be all sweet and romantic like The Time Traveler s Wife because the blurb is all about how he can t fall in love and how this is a a love story across the ages this is misleading It s not romantic at all He spends most of the book grieving for his dead wife and maybe I m a terrible terrible person for asking this but is it really realistic that Tom s grief still seems so fresh after than 300 yearsMaybe I am just heartlessThere s also a really bad flow of narration The time jumps in the middle of scenes made it difficult to settle into the rhythm of any time period And a lot of these feel pointless It s like time period of the week or in this case the chapter Tom zips all over the place having a lot of uirky random adventures and meeting everyone from Shakespeare to Omai to F Scott Fitzgerald but there is actually VERY LITTLE STORY It seemed like a random bunch of name dropping and historical event dropping Because of course this guy was present at almost every major historical event across the globe in his several hundred years of life AND met almost every famous person you ve ever heard of I m exaggerating But why would he have met all these people just because he was alive at the same time I m alive right now in 2018 but that doesn t mean I hang out with Beyonce and the 14th Dalai LamaI could not suspend that much disbeliefBlog Facebook Twitter Instagram Youtube

Review How to Stop Time

How to Stop Time Review Ñ 2 Matt Haig É 2 Characters Review How to Stop Time Has lived history performing with Shakespeare exploring the high seas with Captain Cook and sharing cocktails with Fitzgerald Now he just wants an ordinary lifeSo Tom moves back to London his old home to become a high school history teacher the perfect job for someone who has witnessed the city's history first hand Better yet a captivating French teacher at his school seems fascinated by him But the Albatross Society the secretive group which protects people like Tom has one rule never fall in love As. 4 stars I m captivated by a good time travel story and while this is not a time travel story in the strictest sense I was reminded of a few favorites Jack Finney s Time and Again Stephen King s 112263 and Audrey Niffenegger s The Time Traveler s Wife I couldn t help but think of all three of these at the very beginning of the story The first rule is that you don t fall in love he said There are other rules too but that is the main one No falling in love No staying in love No daydreaming of love Of course the main character in each of these books falls in love Our protagonist Tom Hazard takes us back and forth across centuries from the now through flashbacks to his past not just years ago but centuries ago No he s not time traveling He s just very old due to his affliction which causes him to age at a much slower rate than normal and in Tom s case he ages in appearance a year for every fifteen years so now he is over 400 years old So it is his memory that takes us back to the time when he fell in love with Rose in 1599 and when their daughter was born If I haven t lost you already I ll try to make the case for this story What I said in my review of Jack Finney s book Time and Again held true for me here When I read a time travel story I try not to dwell on how the character got to this other time and place It just doesn t pay because then I start asking uestions for which there is no realistic answer So for me it has to be about the destination what I find there what happens there what it means for the character in his or her present day What we find in Tom s past is a lonely sad life with moments of joy that he has to run from in order to keep his loved ones safe All of this connected to his desire to lead a normal life and find his daughter as we find him in the now teaching history in a London school There are also moments where I found sheer enjoyment from when he works at the Globe Theater for Shakespeare to when he plays the piano at Ciro s in Paris and meets F Scott and Zelda Fitzgerald among others I also loved the appearance of the famous Dakota apartment building in New York City in the 1890 s as it is also in Jack Finney s book The story has an ominous side to it as well in the character of Hendrich head of the society claiming to protect those with the affliction This was lovely way to spend a snowy weekend taking a trip down Tom Hazard s memory lane all 400 years of it Amid the fear and loss and loneliness there is a lot of love in this creative and captivating story as well as some things to think about for sure what it means to live one s life what are the important things the things to hold precious To those who just don t think they can accept the premise of the story I say the same thing I said about Finney s book Imagine you are in another time in another place with people you don t yet know It doesn t have to be a story about time travel it could be a fantasy a mystery a story that takes place in history or in the future because isn t this what we as readers of any fiction are ultimately summoned to do when we begin that first page of any story I received an advanced copy of this book from Viking through Edelweiss
