If you could travel back in time to see any concert, who would you go to see?
Caroline Tangent’s husband, Jon has invented a time machine so they can visit iconic gigs in history: Woodstock, David Bowie, Edith Piaf in 1930’s Paris – an inexhaustible bucket-list. But they can’t tell anyone they’re doing so; Caroline’s life as an artist in North London goes on with her friends and family, and their concerts remain a secret.
As their trips to the past continue, they begin to realise how Jon’s invention could change a devastating moment from their own past. And for Caroline, it’s clear that she and Jon don’t want the same outcome.
Until, on a trip to 1978, one of them does something unthinkable which will change both their lives forever.
For fans of Matt Haig, Audrey Niffenegger, Stephen King’s 11/22/63 – or anyone who likes time travel or music!
My Rating: 4 Stars
Consider liking my review on Goodreads
I was granted complimentary access to The Other Times of Caroline Tangent as part of my participation in a blog tour for this title with Storytellers on Tour. Thank you to all involved in affording me this opportunity! My thoughts are my own and my review is honest.
What would two people whose lives revolve around music do with a time machine? Attend the great concerts of history, of course! But what if they could correct some wrongs along the way?
This is not an author I’ve read before, but after reading this book I’ll definitely be keeping my eyes open for other titles! The writing is beautiful and the characters are so interesting. The plot does have its twists and turns, which do make for a very interesting story, but I think these are characters I could hang out with even if there wasn’t much happening.
If you’re into time travel novels or just stories about flawed humans loving and hating each other in beautifully complicated ways, this books needs to be on your TBR!
I would also like to give my compliments to the cover artist for this bright and eye-batching bit of optical illusion work that fits so well with the story. Gorgeous! You nailed it.
