Though the book focuses only on positive 'butterfly effects', it also reminds me that the same principal applies to my careless words and deeds human inputs typically done FREELY- as in 'free will' - not deterministically. 12 people found this helpful. Andy Andrews is an inspiring author and how you may not know how valuable until (and unless) you can back up the years of history and see the effect your every day decisions and words make far beyond your ability to calculate. The illustrations are lovely. It makes a great gift item.

This book is one of the best books I've read in a long time. It makes you wonder what you would do if you were Evan Treborn if you had his life. When Evan was younger he began to write notebooks. Now those notebooks come in handy when he needs to go in the past to save his only love, Kayleigh Miller. His life is turned upside down when he blocked out all of his extreme emotional moments of the past. Now he must live through them where he can pause, slow down, rewind, and fast forward.

Battling the psychological impact of repressed childhood memories, a young man uses his talent for traveling back in time to inhabit his childhood body and to try to mend the broken lives of those around him, only to discover that each of his trips into the past yields chaotic and devastating results in the present. Original. (A New Line Cinema film, releasing February 2004, starring Ashton Kutcher) (Science Fiction & Fantasy)

I saw the movie years ago and thought I would enjoy the book. I had a very hard time finding this book and wound up buying a used one, which I have never done before. Why this book hasn't been turned into an e-book is beyond me. It stands the test of time and is a great story. I have passed it on to a family member and they, like me, are used to reading in an e-book format. I would have bought this book in a kindle format and paid a lot more for it, If you can find it, make sure it is the one written by James Swallow, as there are other books with the same name. I find it hard to understand why people can latch onto a title and try to confuse the reading public. It should be illegal. Especially since Amazon will refund your money when you realize that you purchased a book in error due to the name of the book being the same.

Well I just loved the movie and I loved this I loved the creativity of the whole idea and I like how dark it gets because I like that it explores gritty, emotional topics.. It's follows the move but is a well written novel and helped explain some bits that were a bit of a mystery from the moive. Oh it did leave out just one thing from the movie that I was looking forward to reading so maybe I should give it four stars but I prefer to be generous in the face of this much creativity.

Evan can travel through time. He does so by studying his old journals. As he tries to change the past, his attempts make things worse. this was an interesting book, and I couldn't put it down. There are twists and turns and lots of the unexpected.

This was a great, quick read. And exactly like the movie. If you haven't read this... or at least seen the movie, get on it!

This was one of the best books that I have read in a very long time! I wanted to read it before seeing the movie and now I can't wait to see it! I couldn't put the book down once I started it. The plot was so intriging and each page makes you want to move to the next to see what was going to happen! The storyline interweaves itself so well and is fascinating and complex in the aspect of how one scene in the beginning of the book suddenly reappears in another scene later in the book. When this happens, all I could think of was "wow!"
The characters are so believable and it is so easy to "live" through each one. I highly recommend this to everyone! It is a book that could easily be read several times over!
The butterfly effect refers to the interconnectedness of the world. In other words, a butterfly flapping its wings in China could cause a hurricane on the other side of the world. But this book really deals with the Bradbury Effect as in his A Sound of Thunder where the death of a butterfly in the distant path has unknowable effects on the present.
In this book we have a character with a very messed-up life. Not only is his family dysfunctional (dad is in the nut house), but he has blackouts and does very disturbing things.
The book takes a long time to get started by filling in tons of background history. Eventually we get to the point where our character learns he can effect things in the past. Usually to disastrous effects. He keeps trying to correct things but they keep getting worse.
So, will he be able to make things better? Unfortunately two things stand in his way. One is that "time travel" is bad for his brain. The other is that people think he is crazy and want to lock him up.
So we wind up with a series of bad lives that we stop caring about after a while. We also learn a bit about his talent (although not enough). Finally we get a cute, romantic-comedy-style ending.
But my big question is if he had total blackouts, how was he able to write about the events in his journals? We don't know how much of the events he managed to transcribe, but at least with the video camera incident we do see that he wrote about things he didn't remember and then didn't remember he wrote about them. Too weak for me.
This is a long book for a novelization of a movie aimed at this audience and it just doesn't work or interest. I am sure it could work for readers who don't care about the details (sort of like viewers who made Armageddon successful). As a movie novelization, the author obviously did some work to fill out the story. I can only suspect that the movie has to rush through many of the events in the book.
I give it three stars for the author's efforts to fill out the story (it's not his fault the story didn't work in the first place).
