I don't usually pick up science-fiction stories on my own. Therefore, I was very skeptical when I came across Anchors No More. I have to admit that I was pleasantly surprised from start to finish.
The beginning instantly grabbed my attention. Since I'm not a frequent science fiction reader, I was extremely interested in with the main characters, Holly and Gary, were up to. When I learned that it was time travel, I was hesitant, but still curious due to the suspense the author created.
Holly and Gary have no way of knowing if traveling through time would work (despite their calculations), so it was interesting to see the surprises they faced upon traveling five years into the future. It was realistic that they couldn't account for everything, since time travel had not been done before.
I was a little anxious in the beginning, because of the scientific jargon. Science isn't really my strong suit so I was worried I would get lost. Luckily for me, there wasn't much to be worried about, because terms were explained or easy to understand based on the context.
Additionally, Holly and Gary's journey through time results in exciting twists and unexpected turns as you make your way through the adventurous time traveling novella. It is difficult to put down this fast-paced and suspenseful tale, even as someone who doesn't read sci-fi regularly. I definitely recommend this to anyone who is looking for an adventure to read.
