Unhappenings by Edward Aubry

Disclaimer: I received this book for free in exchange for an honest review. All of these opinions are purely my own.

The concept of this novel drew me in from the beginning; unhappenings, or events that undo themselves without anyone noticing, happen all the time in Nigel’s life with him being the only one that realises. Part love story, part science fiction, this extraordinary book is something that will keep you gripped to the last page. The chapters are extremely short, sometimes only a single page, which has both positive and negative consequences; the brevity sometimes seems unnecessary, especially when the characters haven’t moved in time as indicated in the chapter headings, but it does mean that this is a very quick read that is difficult to put down.

Unhappenings is a fast-paced, nail-biting adventure with some time travel that, although confusing at points, is done in a way that I have never seen before. The twists and turns were unexpected and executed perfectly.

I would love to read something else by this author. This was a great example of the time travel genre and although, as I said, I had a slight problem with the plot being confusing at points, I really enjoyed the story and writing style overall so would highly recommend it.

4 out of 5 stars!
