Peter Clines' new book Paradox Bound is a fascinating science fiction novel dealing with travels through American history. The main character, a boy Eli Teague sees an old Model A Ford with a woman dressed in a Revolutionary War attire. Before long, a second car comes along and gives chase. Fascinated by this event and wanting answers, Eli takes off on a journey through history that will ultimately decide America's future.
Time travel, which is one of the central themes in the science fiction genre, takes on a new approach in Clines' novel. It's not so much as directly influencing history, as it is a journey of self-discovery. I also liked the fact that the central theme of the book is the concept of the American Dream and the values we hold dear in our exceptional country.
