Time burrito takes you exactly on the fun journey it promises you—back in time to make the perfect burrito. When you first see the cover of Time Burrito, you know you are in for a ride. Then you read the first sentence, and you know it will be a good one.
Personally, I struggle with the concept of time travel, both in books and movies. Rarely does someone explain paradoxes in a satisfying and logical way. Aaron Frale is remarkably good at not even letting me question his logic but instead focuses on the humorous details, quirky characters, pop culture references, and the fast paced story.
This book had me laugh out loud in the beginning, and it convinced me of its story at the end. I did not expect the light comedy to turn into such a page turner. The author does a good job at both getting you attached to the amiable and diverse characters, and giving them precisely enough trouble at every stage of the book.
On the other side, there was little sophistication in the language and motives of the characters. Fortunately, in the case of time burrito, these points fit the character of the book and do not take away from the fun.
I give Time Burrito 4 out of 5 stars. The book is perfect for everyone who wants a light and amusing read, one that does not make you question its logic but sucks you into its story.
