    FINALLY I´m done. It took me about forever to get through this book. The question´s why, though. This book brings together one of the most intriguing topics with quite the charismatic pair of characters. Unfortunately the most interesting things are the most difficult to write about and time traveling kind of hits the top of the list. It is of importance to advance with utter care, because time traveling is almost always lacking logic and the adhesion to fix gaps. Passenger is no exception to the rule. I still have approximately 1000 questions about the whole thing, starting with how the heck it actually works: Who built the passages? Why to those countries and times? Why are they allowed to jump to the future? Is there any reason for this other than extravagant holidays? I´ve yet to find a wholly satisfying TT novel. Apart from that the story doesn´t convince completely either. Etta, for me, is way more likable, fiercer and stronger from Nicolas´PoV. In the beginning I couldn´t stand her at all, mainly because I do have defiant feelings toward those who call their parents by their names. But she grew on me from the moment she stepped onto the deck of Nicolas´ ship. Still I think 21st century Etta and TT Etta are two different girls. Nicolas, on the other hand, is a wonderful combination of stupid and perfect. Nobody forced him to strike a deal with the old snake, so all the self pity is for vast. He could´ve said no?? It also makes Etta´s ridiculously easy forgiveness and support unnatural. If Nicolas had chosen her right in the beginning -as he wanted to - nothing would´ve happened. Also, someone please explain to stupid me what the purpose of these travellers is?! To follow the orders of one ancient, power crazy man who thinks the world is an orchestra and he´s the conductor?? To bring back souvenirs from different eras? Because saving a timeline that wouldn´t be in need of rescue without them can´t be the reason. The whole thing is missing a very important element of „What´s the greater goal?“ I think this 1st installment shows single elements of awesome. For example is Nicolas´ skin color a perfect attempt to approach the real issues of society, past and present. Problem is, the story doesn´t manage to connect those bits of wonderful to something brilliant. Instead there is too much and not nearly enough of everything. Until it turned out to be one of those books. You know, the one´s where you always keep squinting at the end of the page, keeping track of your progress. Counting how many pages you´ve left until you´re done. Because you hope to finally get to the end.
