Mini-Review (click to view--possible spoilers)

Review: 2019.620 (A Word for Authors)

Pro: Most of the fun in the story is learning how their world differs from ours. How the alien technology so dramatically changed the course of history.

The mystery itself is interesting, and Sylvia’s glimpses of the past just make it more mysterious.

Con: Sylvia doesn’t solve the mystery. Alvin does (if we believe him) and then explains it all to her.
