At The End of the Tunnel Blurb
What would you do with all of time and space? Colin knows exactly what he would do. Visit ancient times, attend medieval jousts, and watch battles throughout the ages! But Polly knows better. She’s been back in time before. She’s seen how different it is, how hard it is, and how terrifying it can be. That’s why Polly will help Colin. She’ll show him how to view the past, help him understand it and, hopefully, he’ll learn from it, as Polly herself has learnt. But everything changes when someone breaks the rules. And they’ve been breaking the rules for a very, very, long time.Amazon
At The End of the Tunnel is a delightful story of time travel and consequences. This middle-grade adventure is the most fun I’ve had in a while. I am not a sci-fi fan, but I’ve recently read some great ones. I adored Robin Brown’s work with this novel.
Polly and Colin are adorable, though Colin is a bit whiney. However, this is all due to his excitement about finding the tunnel. His first trip through was enlightening. His foray into the past set the tone for how he thinks about people and events in his life. Polly is one of the best female characters I’ve met. She is strong and wise, yet not overpowering.
I found myself wanting to travel through the tunnel. The description of the tunnel makes you feel like you are there. The darkness is tangible. I often found myself holding my breath. Though, the way the tunnel works is very confusing. It could be that I am an adult trying to riddle it out. But, it might confuse everyone. Kids would probably roll with it and love it because of the confusion.
I enjoyed At The End of the Tunnel very much. I gladly award it 4 out of 5 stars. If you have kids who love time travel and sci-fi, they might enjoy this little gem.
