The Map of Time by Felix J. Palma
Publisher: Atria Books
Publish Date: January 1, 2008
There are really three parts to this book, but they are all connected, so it's a lot of fun.
1 - Andrew is preparing to commit suicide to be with his one true love. His cousin, Charles tells him about this new company 'Murray's Time Travel', that allows you to travel into the future. Andrew wants to travel to the past to fix HIS issues. Here we are introduced to H.G. Wells.
2 - Claire Haggerty is bored with everything and everybody. She wants to go to Murray's Time Travel so she can meet a hero from the future - he's in all the advertisements and there are statues of him at the company.
3 - H.G. Wells and his famous time travel machine story.
These sound like three different stories, but they are intertwined with H.G. Wells's story at their center. It just keeps you reading. I was entranced - the writing, the characters, the story connections - excellent!
