Untimed by Andy Gavin ~Book Tour & Giveaway~


Charlie’s the kind of boy that no one notices. Hell, even his own mother can’t remember his name. And girls? The invisible man gets more dates.
As if that weren’t enough, when a mysterious clockwork man tries to kill him in modern day Philadelphia, and they tumble through a hole into 1725 London, Charlie realizes even the laws of time don’t take him seriously.
Still, this isn’t all bad. In fact, there’s this girl, another time traveler, who not only remembers his name, but might even like him! Unfortunately, Yvaine carries more than her share of baggage: like a baby boy and at least two ex-boyfriends! One’s famous, the other’s murderous, and Charlie doesn’t know who is the bigger problem.
When one kills the other — and the other is nineteen year-old Ben Franklin — things get really crazy. Can their relationship survive? Can the future? Charlie and Yvaine are time travelers, they can fix this — theoretically — but the rules are complicated and the stakes are history as we know it.
And there's one more wrinkle: he can only travel into the past, and she can only travel into the future!

I love it!!!
You know how you get started in a book and you don't want to put it down even for a little break....well this is totally one of those!!!
I mean when I started reading it I was kinda like why the heck is Charlie ok with not being notice???? Then I was like ...NO Fricking way...that is too weird.
Clock dudes that shoot things and disappear in to time holes...yep what have I got myself into reading.
Then of course we're in London and we meet up with the craziest gang of street losers ever..I swear, Mr. Gavin pegged the characters right for that time and year. A bunch of filthy pick pocketers....with of course a little bright side Yvaine.
Yvanie in her own right was a very interesting character. A traveler like Charlie, but she never left London slums to see if there was anything better.

The story on a whole is one HUGE and I mean HUGE adventure that is sure to capture YA and adults readers alike. I enjoyed how they totally screwed up the time line and killed off Ben Franklin...LOL
Nothing like hopping through time backwards and forwards right?

I think that Mr. Andy Gavin did an AMAZING job capturing his readers and his writing, both characters and settings are supreme.
