I have got nothing good to say about this book.
I found it really shallow and emotionally detached. Here's a woman who met a time traveller, had six miscarriages, saw him after being blown to pieces, and met him again thirty years after he died, all without conveying the slightest sense of wonder. The death scene was slightly moving, but that's it. The writing was rubbish, like it was the third person writing first person narrative in short, breathy sentences. The story was a complete missed opportunity - I can imagine a proper sci-fi writer taking it up at least two more levels.
