A great gift Nov. 26 2012
By Robert L. Magni - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I bought this book for my girlfriend because she has the first two and really enjoys them.
I've heard nothing but good things about Mr LeLord's books, although I yet to read it myself, they make enjoyable quick reads that leave you waiting impatiently for the next one to be translated.

Hector does it again! Oct. 20 2012
By Jeimy M Gonzalez - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Like a fine wine, Hector's tales get better with time (some pun intended). In his third adventure, Lelord delves into his topic with his usual philosophical and psychological viewpoints, but also offers insights from the branches of physics and biology, giving the reader ample viewpoints on the passage of time.

Light reading but very interesting and gives time a different perspective than the one we are used to having. Would recommend for those looking for something different to read.
