As heartbreaking as it is uplifting Crossing The Rubicon is a book everyone should read at least once. This book was narrated beautifully. I felt as if I was granted a rare glimpse into a diary that was never meant to be shared. I laughed, I cried and at times I even became angry yet.....I couldn't put this book down. I devoured the pages and hung onto them as if teetering on a thin wire hanging over some dark chasm that threatened to swallow me whole if I didn't proceed. Yes, the book was just that dang good.
I loved how the Author put such a unique spin on time travel. The journey the group goes on is very "real" and the places they visit for the most part do exist. I also appreciated that the Author kept the characters humble. They didn't walk around like they knew everything or were better than the people they encountered. No, these characters behaved exactly as I imagine any of us would thrust into a time and place we knew nothing(or very little) about.
In the end the story isn't perfect but in some ways its flaws are part of the charm. With that being said I will be rating Crossing The Rubicon by R.C. Richter ★★★★.
