The Psychology of Time Travel: #bookreview

If you are like me, then you are interested in the topic of time travel. I spend (or waste, depending on your point of view) a lot of time thinking about where I would go and what I would do if I had the chance to travel to a different time. So when this book, The Psychology of Time Travel by Kate Mascarenhas, became available on NetGalley, it was a happy day that I would never change on any timeline or in any dimension.

Would we still be ourselves or would there be several versions of us if we traveled through time? In The Psychology of Time Travel, the time travelers travel to different periods but they don’t change events.
There would be several versions of the same person visiting with the current version on special days like their wedding. If they are investigating a crime, then the time travel officers collect evidence from the time just before the crime happened.

The four women who made time travel a reality in 1967 were once close friends. However, after Bee has a nervous breakdown the other three no longer have any contact with her. In 2017, one of Bee’s former co-workers sends her information about an unsolved homicide. No one knows if it’s Bee or another time traveler. Bee’s granddaughter, Ruby, becomes interested in finding out the identity of the mystery lady.

I thought that the story was interesting. It was awesome to read a story about women involved in science and time travel. You guys might already know that I love a story with a little mystery.

FYI: I would travel to the spring of 1992 and totally redo the spring and summer before my senior year of high school. Where would you take the time travel machine?
