Review: The Ministry of Time by Kaliane Bradley

The Ministry of Time is an odd book! It starts well, with confident prose and engaging characters that develop nicely, and then things take a turn. A bit of tension is added near the start, then very little happens until the 80% mark, when the plot kicks in. The writing becomes sloppier, with odd turns of phrases that jar, and please please please, never feel obliged to write a sex scene ever again… The ending curiously felt rushed, given how little had happened in the proceeding 60% or so! That said, it’s an interesting take on the time travel genre, just don’t expect anything revelationary.

Book kindly supplied by NetGalley for an honest review.
