The Ministry of Time by Kaliane Bradley

I was excited to read this as the premise is brilliant. Sadly, I found it a bit of a dud. The story got progressively less engaging and incorporated a “twist” I found trite, and the middling resolution made the whole story weaker. No characters were particularly engaging and I found the arctic chapters and the musings of the main character more of a distraction than an enhancement. I didn’t particularly care for the writing style, and also lampshading something doesn’t magically make it not bad. All told, an ok read but not a book for me. ★★★☆☆
