    One thought on “The Rewind Files”

    1. This is a fun, fast-paced mystery adventure that's as smart as it is entertaining. So often world-building stories get overly complicated or trip on their own made-up logic, but this book has a fully realized, believable future and lots of great time travel gadgets. Oh-- and it's also really fun to read. READ IT!

    2. I inhaled this book. It was just what I needed to read: fast-paced, historical, scifi, clever and quirky.

    3. This was such a wonderful read, both great fun and super intense. I laughed out loud so many times, which doesn't happen often when I read, and I spent hours reading with nearly no distractions, which is also a rare occurrence these days.A+ would recommend.

    4. I stay away from espionage. I also (at least in my own writing) tend to stay away from time-travel. Things get far too complicated too quickly, and it’s all I can do to try to wrap my mind around the paradoxes inherent in even a simple time loop. I also-- to my shame-- tend to avoid twentieth-century history in particular and American history in general in my own work, which revolves around astronomy in the 1800s. The Rewind Files, by Claire Willet, involved all of these. On the other hand tho [...]

    5. Time travel stories are the bomb, especially when they're done well. On that note, you should read this one.Sometime in the twenty-second century, humanity discovered time travel. Predictably, we set out to undo a lot of history’s more appalling moments. Also predictably, this was a horrible idea. History unraveled, and thus was born the Agency responsible for fixing the timeline. Regina Bellows is perfectly happy being a desk jockey, staying safely in the twenty-second century and watching op [...]

    6. An immediately intriguing time-travel adventure, with likeable, vivid characters, Willett’s skilled writing makes quick work of drawing you in to the complex plot of The Rewind Files. You’ll be rooting for Regina “Reggie” Bellows, and the restoration of the mid-20th century, as you remember it, from the very start.A great mix of science fiction, detective story, and thriller - this story will stretch your imagination around the author’s creative theory of time travel and what alternate [...]

    7. This was excellent. As a debut novel one simply could not expect better, I suspect Ms. Willett will be astonishing us with more in the years to come. I certainly plan to enjoy whatever she pens! I have given it my "best of" designation for this year. I do hope it has won a Award - it deserves it! This is a mystery, within a mystery, wrapped in a time travel story. Without giving anything away I will say that I had worked out who Saturn was before the reveal, but Mars blew me away. I did NOT see [...]

    8. Unbelievably fast-paced, clever and heartfelt. I grew up reading Harry Potter and watching Alias and this novel filled a void I didn't even know I had. Some wonderful meditations on family, fate and faith, where ordinary people must jump (literally) into the unknown, where there are terrible events that were always meant to be and benign realities that never should have been. Fans of sci-fi, history, and comedy will be deeply pleased by this book. Oh and can I add - female characters are front a [...]

    9. Holy moly, this book was fun. I couldn't stop reading. A little bit Quantum Leap, a little bit All the President's Men, and a touch of Postcards from the Edge doesn't do it justice. The few places where the first-person narration tripped on itself did nothing to detract from my enjoyment. If you like time travel or political intrigue, this time-hopping tip of the hat to 1972 (and characters with moxie) is worth a spin.

    10. Great original story!Loved the characters and the twists and turns in the storyline. You may have turned me into a Watergate nerd.

    11. I devoured this book in two sittings. I stayed up late to finish this book because it was a "well, i'm ONLY a hundred pages from the ending. I can't stop now" type of book. What I truly loved about my take away from this was how it left me wanting more not only in this series but wanting to educate myself on the topics it peruses. Before I started The Rewind Files, I was quiet but unapologetic about my very basic knowledge of the Watergate Scandal. After finishing the book, I strangely find myse [...]

    12. This book is so much fun. It's breathlessly paced, endlessly interesting, and full of kick-ass women. My only minor quibble is some of the dialogue is bit over-explanatory or maybe a little forced for the sake of getting a sassy line in, but I don't even really care about that -- the book is such a great read otherwise. This is perfect for both teenagers and adults (or even tweens, if you don't care if they read some some mild swearing), and this makes me really want to see some of Claire Willet [...]

    13. It's the year 2112. Regina Bellows works as a tech in the Time Travel Bureau. She is the daughter of two time travel legends: Leo Carstairs & Kate Bellows. Since the invention of time travel, the main job of the agents at the Bureau is go back in time to patch happenings to make sure they happen so history doesn't unravel further. One day, there is a huge chronomaly showing up on the timeline that hasn't been there before and she is sent back to 1972 to figure out what was causing it. With t [...]

    14. A wonderful book. A conspiracy uncovered that time travelers have to go back and foil to save the world- what's not to love. The dialogue is smart and funny and I kept thinking- this would be a hilarious movie. I tore through this one with a vengeance, in past because of the plot pacing and in part because it was just so fun. It did get a little tangled near the end when all of the plot pieces had to be explained to make sense of them- but it is time travel, at some point it is bound to get conv [...]

    15. I read it in one day- I couldn't put it down. I generally don't love science fiction, because I have a hard time keeping track of the "rules" of the created universe. These rules I got, because they made sense to even my non-sci-fi-inclined brain. And I LOVED the narrator. She's hilarious, and we'd totally be friends if she were real. This book is a great mix of funny, awesome history (I learned stuff!), likable characters, and amazing plot twists. Generally I get annoyed when plots are too twis [...]

    16. This is not the kind of book I would normally read. I'm not into scifi or time-travel (generally it makes my head hurt). I do generally like historical fiction, but I don't know a lot about the Nixon administration - just what I've picked up in popular culture. HOWEVER, I loved this book. I think it was the relationship between the characters that really held my attention but the plot is also compelling and the twists and turns are believable and enjoyable. I LOVED THIS BOOK! I hope there's a se [...]

    17. As someone who tends to shy away from time travel books, I can say this was easily one of the best works of fiction I've read in a long time. I find a lot of time travel stories a bit hard to follow, but this author does an amazing job of keeping the reader on track with what's happening without being boring or resorting to elementary writing. Another thing I find lacking in a lot of recent books is great character development, but this book has that in spades. It's a good day when you actually [...]

    18. This is a book of two halves - the first half deals with the hero living in 1972 and the second half is a more traditional time travel adventure and all the paradoxes that can happen. The first half I thought was excellent. The author really brings to life the characters and life in 1972. The second half, although good, I do not think lives up to the first half, as it becomes a chase through time story

    19. I couldn't put this down! I love all of the characters and their relationships. The story was suspenseful and kept me on my toes, trying to guess the twists. This book was fun and full of wonderful women, full of nuance and thoughtful considerations of the world. And the time travel was well explained! 10/10 do recommend.

    20. Love reading authors I know personally. This was a very engaging book. Page 20: my brain hurts. Page 60: plot twist and I'm hooked! Loved the dialogue. And now I want to read All the President's Men. Super bonus points for the dialogue reading like real people actually speak. Comes from the author being a playwright and I so enjoyed it.

    21. OMG this book is the funnest.Badass, sassy, loveable, smart-as-hell female lead, anti-racism, familial bonds, friendship, time travel, un-boring history lessons, and brilliant writing. What else could a reader ask for? A good giggle? All the feels? Check and check!Seriously. Read it before it hits theatres. Because it will, you guys.

    22. A fantastic time-travel adventure with strong women and minority characters. The premise is fascinating, and I was sucked in to the fast-moving plot very quickly. By chapter 3 I couldn't put it down, and by the last chapter, I didn't want the book to end. Thankfully, the author has indicated she may be open to a sequel.

    23. Do you like history? Does time travel sound cool to you? Do you have feelings? If yes, this book is for you. Fast-paced, fun, funny, poignant. I just finished and I want more! Really hope this becomes a movie, too.

    24. Ooh, I loved this book. Love it when a novel grips you and you can't stop reading? Interested in politics and storytelling? Want your sci-fi WITHOUT a healthy dose of patriarchy and racism? GO GET THIS BOOK! If you liked The Hunger Games you'll dig this HARD.

    25. This was so good and so much fun. It has an excellent mystery, heart wrenching family drama, hilarious and sometimes alarmingly realistic characters, and of course time travel shenanigans that would make the Doctor's head spin. Cannot wait for the further adventures of Reggie and co.

    26. Fast paced, exciting, full of witty and realistic dialogue, and likeable characters with actual human flaws.Full disclosure, Claire is a friend of mine, but that doesn't change that v The Rewind Files is one of the best pieces of feminist sci fi I've read in a long time.

    27. This was such a brilliant read! Fast-paced, exciting, hilarious and insanely clever with unpredictable twists and turns and lovable, down-to-earth characters who I was rooting for from start to finish. I loved every minute of reading this book!

    28. A nice little time travel book. Time travel done right. Has some great humor as well. This review sucks. Sorry.

    29. Super fun read! I picked this up and couldn't stop reading! I love all the 70's references and time travel is a super cool idea.
