An ingenious, dystopian novel of one young woman's resistance against the constraints of an oppressive society, from the inventive imagination of Joyce Carol Oates "Time travel" -- and its hazards--are made literal in this astonishing new novel in which a recklessly idealistic girl dares to test the perimeters of her tightly controlled (future) world and is punished by being sent back in time to a region of North America -- "Wainscotia, Wisconsin"--that existed eighty years before.  Cast adrift in time in this idyllic Midwestern town she is set upon a course of "rehabilitation"--but cannot resist falling in love with a fellow exile and questioning the constrains of the Wainscotia world with results that are both devastating and liberating.   Arresting and visionary, Hazards of Time Travel  is both a novel of harrowing discovery and an exquisitely wrought love story that may be Joyce Carol Oates's most unexpected novel so far.… (més)

I was beyond excited when I heard that one of my favorite authors Joyce Carol Oates had a new novel out. And not only that, it was dystopian, one of my favorite fiction genres! The only thing to make this better would have been if she chose to co-author with Stephen King! ⁣
Quite simply, I loved this book. It was thrilling (I had to know what happened next and this was a hard book for me to have to put down), there was a good dose of romance involved, and it was overall captivating. I know most readers are going to pre-judge this book once they hear the description “teen protagonist” and “dystopian setting”. Fear not, this is not another Hunger Games/Divergent wannabe! ⁣
The setting & brief history of events describing the dystopian setting is eerily reminiscent of today’s political and cultural climate(s). Unlike some dystopian stories, the future in this one is one that doesn’t seem far fetched or hard reaching to imagine happening. ⁣
My only complaint about this book is the ending. I so wanted this book to be heftier as Miss Oates’s other works tend to be. I felt there was much more to be told in the protagonist’s story, and wished that certain events would have happened that didn’t come to fruition. ⁣ ( )

Ultimately this book ended up being disappointing because there was no real resolution. Adriane is a questioner in a society where that is dangerous - but she is so naïve about her questions and alternates between worrying about her family and not being able to help herself "breaking" the rules. As a reader I vacillated between trusting her as a narrator and thinking she was unreliable and there is never any definitive answer to that question. ( )

This was awful.

Have you ever read a book and seriously just wanted to shake some sense into the main character?

The first section of the book was intriguing -- the not-so-fictional idea that post-9/11, a strict police state took over North and Central America, with figurehead presidents and a constant monitoring of citizens. I wanted to know more about the world itself, but the protagonist was so obtuse. She makes the same mistakes over and over, falls in love at the drop of a hat (and boy do I have words about that fellow), and is so overwrought as to be a parody of teenage girls. Honestly, I'm a bit offended on behalf of teenagers everywhere. ( )

A lot of people seemed disappointed in the ending, but I was okay with it. Maybe I just didn't have a lot invested in this book because I don't think there was an ending that I would have hated. The main character really rubbed me the wrong way at the beginning...she seemed naive to the point of stupidity sometimes at how she just didn't get the gravity of the stuff she did. I tried to think back to when I was a teenager and whether that makes sense but I wasn't really that rebellious so maybe I'm the wrong person to ask.
I also wasn't a huge fan of her love obsession but that's something I could more relate to as a teenager! ( )

I found this book to be very disturbing. A dystopian society that deals in mind control. ( )
