really has no idea how to function in yeah I know, bad grammar How he adapts to fulfill his uncle s requests is great fun to witness International intrigue, romance, action, time travel, family dysfunction, violence and some surprise aspects that would require a spoiler alert to share My copy did have some typos and mistakes, you know how I get when they are too egregious Fortunately they didn t quite reach that threshold But enough to mention.Main characters were fairly well developed, but some ancillary characters not as well This makes some of the actions those characters take a bit jarring I admit though that this may be a bit on the picky side, because overall the book is very entertaining A good engaging adventure that appears to be the launch pad for a fun series Enjoy We all

this novel fit right into the eccentricities of Uncle Herbert It s a wild ride from start to finish The story was neat and tidy Well thought out, and finishes with questions answered For the most part, every character served a crucial role to the story I say for the most part, and I ll get to that in a minute While well written, there was a lot of uninterrupted dialogue Properly spaced, mind you, but it felt like one long speech when characters talked sometimes There was no action to break it up It was excellent exposition and the information was necessary It didn t need to be all at once, though In some parts, it did serve to jump the narrative ahead, especially given the time frame Some of the character interactions felt forced, as did the love story Remember when I said each character served a crucial role to the story Avril didn t She felt thrust into the narrative to serve as nothingthan the love interest Her character doesn t feel as rounded as the others I like how it ended, I didn t particularly care for how we got there The character development was okay Andrew s was the most notable, as expected of first person narratives I wish some of the supporting characters had a littleto them, though.The author takes great care in how the story unfolds Character placement and personality become very important, something they manage to reflect What I liked most was how the author managed to weave little seeds of doubt for the loyalties of the characters It kind of felt like I was playing Clue As the cast expands, readers analyze every detail to try and predict how the story will turn out Because of this, Uncle Herbert isn t as predictable as it first seems There s some minor editing needed It s not enough to tear the reader out of the story.Uncle Herbert was a book of unique tastes, much like the man himself I wasn t sure what to expect going into this novel, but I can say I wasn t disappointed Adjusting the way the reader s given information would help how the narrative progresses Uncle Herbert is a very worthwhile read Uncle Herbert Time is Running Out Sand Mountain Tales by Philip C Elrod, 310 pages, March 10th, 2017, Genre Young Adult Adventure

first I wasn t convinced by the route this was taking However, with a few chapters under my belt, I knew I was going to like it I m not a big fan of comedy I like my fiction to be serious but this had just the right balance It was a good read without being too OTT for my tastes It was certainly an enjoyable and fresh approach to the time travel genre Thanks to author Philip C Elrod for a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.https barnseybooks.blogspot.co.uk 2 Having read Mylean Universe Series by the talented Philip C Elrod before, I pre ordered Uncle Herbert right away, knowing that I would definitely enjoy the story I wasn t disappointed it was fast paced, full of action and impossible to put down The story, which starts quite ordinarily, with a young man, Andrew, dreaming

Series by the talented Philip C Elrod before, I pre ordered Uncle Herbert right away, knowing that I would definitely enjoy the story I wasn t disappointed it was fast paced, full of action and impossible to put down The story, which starts quite ordinarily, with a young man, Andrew, dreaming of getting into college and getting out of his small southern town, he has no idea what he gets

presented with a chance to be Uncle Herbert s only heir, only the fortune comes with a price that Andrew isn t sure he s willing to pay I loved how the sci fi and thriller genres were masterfully interweaved together in this highly compelling story I came to care for the characters, not only the main ones, but also the secondary ones, and that s a sign of a really good author right there Humor was also introduced in all the right places, lightening up the mood of a story that could have been rather somber without it, and it made me laugh out loud several times.Another fantastic read from Mr Elrod Highly recommended
