Official Summary: “Back in the fictional northern Ontario city of Lac-Sainte-Catherine, Mike Sauve takes readers on a round and back adventure in the classic tradition of H.G. Wells, where two bumbling time travelers take a sad look at their past(s), their McDonald’s issues and blackout binges, their sentimental pratfalls and romantic flagellations, all to try and find their way home again.
In the third non-linear installment of his L-S-C universe, first with a wraith, then with a plague, and now through time, the author again applies his slapstick sensibilities to the indignities of a small town upbringing, asserting that while our hometowns may have been good places to come from, they remain tricky places to return to-contemptuously, wistfully, or, in this case, temporally.” – Goodreads
Review: I honestly had no clue what I was going to get with this story. It was pretty much a story of how a guy can just keep messing up his life, with time travel and a future self of his to add more stupidity to the mix. They went back in time to fix his mistakes, but the mistakes happened because of who he is as a person. Only when he changed who he was, was when things started going right for him. There is a lot of mention of sex, drugs and what not to be aware of that.
That all being said, I laughed out loud twice listening to this story. It was entertaining to see how absurd it got, how much he could just keep repeating the same mistakes.
