Her she’ll be going she fantasizes that returning to her past might help her find her futureuntil her driving phobia resurfaces and threatens to hold her back from the adventure of a lifetime Time Flies is an epic road trip filled with fun heartbreak and friendship and explores what it takes to conuer your worst fearsso you can start living your future Originally reviewed at Novel EscapesI had high hopes for this novel and although there were aspects of Time Flies that I liked I found it slow and difficult to get attached to in the endThe main character Mel was undeveloped I didn't really feel for her and given that she'd just been through a separation from her husband it could have been made of so we had that feeling of sympathy for her I loved her artistic sensibilities and the fabulous sculptures she made throughout the novel but that was really the only thing that gave her any personality Cook made a particular point of describing the sculptures so that themselves came alive but I wish she had put some time into the relationships with Mel’s sons her friends apart from best friend BJ and her sister background about her sister and their growing up would have helped me immenselyThe road trip and high school reunion were fun and I liked all the references to songs from their school years but there wasn’t enough about their friendships Also peculiar for me was the developed fear of highway driving it was made a point of but never delved into just brought up and then somehow she copes with driving when BJ takes a nap? Other things came in and out too the contact with her ex the email flirting with the ex from high school the constant eating of French fries all of these things were peppered throughout the story but didn’t do much for me to link the people togetherMy favourite character was the man who bought her sculpture for his restaurant but he wasn’t given enough time in the book All in all I'm still not entirely sure what the focus of the story was supposed to be a voyage of rediscovery or a story of friendship? Either way it left me a bit bored I’m afraid not what I would usually expect from Claire Cook I’ve read her novels before and enjoyed them so this one was a bit disappointingThank you to Touchstone for our review copy All opinions are our own
