Interesting premise, but the book fell flat and I found myself skimming ahead to see how many pages remained. A jumbled mush of pseudo-psychological babble that seemed intended to be moving, but really just ended up being incredibly confusing.

I have read 2 other books of Harbison' s (Hope in a Jar and When in Doubt...) and I loved them. This 1 didn't even seem like it was from the same author. It was boring, dialogue was lacking, the ending was summed up too quickly like the author lost steam in the end. I ended up just skimming through.

I have read all of Elizabeth Harbison's books and was so excited to read her newest one, If I could turn back time. Unfortunately, for me, this was not one of her best. I felt this book was just "ok". For the most part it was entertaining, but I just felt like I've seen movies that have had similar story lines and there was nothing riveting about it.

I enjoyed the book, but the ending left a feeling of "huh, that was quick." Ramie revisits her life as an 18 year old and that gets a ton of coverage, but when she visits an alternate reality of herself at 26, we only get a few chapters. I think if we could have had more at 26, less at 18, then the ending might have been more satisfying.
