    1. Joyce Carol Oates writes a fascinating multilayered, and complex dystopian novel that raises the spectre of totalitarian, controlling and heavy surveillance societies such as that of Big Brother in Orwell s 1984 and the in vogue Margaret Atwood s The Handmaid s Tale with Trump as the US president In a world where dissent is not tolerated, where obedience and conformity is expected and people disappear, 17 year old protagonist, Adriane Stohl, is already a person of interest, thanks to her father [...]


    2. Well, this is weird As a huge JCO fan, one of the things that I love about her is that she s not simply re writing the same book over and over the variety in her output is hugely impressive This one, though, is a bit of a puzzle though a playful, slightly mischievous one despite the serious theme of political authoritarianism It starts as a homage to 1984 with a kind of Sovietisation of the US acronyms of bureaucratic bodies abound, people can be disappeared and free thought is se Well, this is [...]


    3. I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review A YA dystopian novel, where our heroine is transported back in time to the 1950s as punishment for free speech Yes please The synopsis for this sounded right up my street, and for the most part I wasn t disappointed The interesting storyline is supported with a well written plot that is reasonably well paced We move quickly from the dystopian future to the past, as our protagonist Adriane must learn to adjust to her new surroun I re [...]


    4. I was so excited about the premise of this book and so so disappointed in the delivery of a book that I thought would be a wonderful midpoint of my favorite genre time travel and dystopian adventure The only way that this book makes the vaguest of sense is if it is a satire of dystopian fiction, written as insultingly terrible as a statement on her opinion of the genre which I am in no way convinced that it is, given the summary, all the reviews, and the way it is written.The main characte I was [...]


    5. Hazards of Time Travel by Joyce Carol Oates is a dystopian novel that gives a scary look into the future where everything you say and do is closely monitored A young girl is sent to another time for four years as a punishment for going against the rules I found this book disturbing and thought provoking.I would like to thank NetGalley and HarperCollins UK, 4th Estate, William Collins for my e copy in exchange for an honest review.


    6. Just finished and no idea how to rate it yet Some parts were brilliant but others left me deeply unsatisfied.After the re read No dissatisfaction Not a flawless book maybe, but overall brilliant 4,5 , rounded up to 5.


    7. It s a common trope in Young Adult novels to feature a teenage protagonist in a dystopian future who is penalized for fighting against an oppressive system That s exactly the story Joyce Carol Oates writes in her new novel HAZARDS OF TIME TRAVEL However, this is not a Young Adult novel Oates is certainly familiar with the form and nature of YA fiction having written several books in this genre It d be natural to assume that she s utilizing her expertise in this form and is also making a depa It [...]
