Typhoon Time By Ron Friedman – My Review

A captivating time travel novel, a mixture of science and fantasy… This is Typhoon Time written by Ron Friedman. A talented writer or a scientist? The knowledge Ron Friedman has about back holes, gravity, quantum mechanics let me think he is more than a fantasy writer.

His book was published on 4 March 2018 by Word Fire Press and very fast became number 1 bestseller on Amazon.  Does this tell you something?

Few words about the bookTyphoon Time by Ron Friedman

I will not reveal you the whole plot but I have to say that is a wonderful time travel adventure, of a group of people who just want to change the world. Changing a few important facts from the past will change also the course of history?

So, we have a billionaire who founded this operation. He is terminally ill and finding out that was discovered a wormhole which can bring back to 1938 he decides to make something important, to change history. Eric Sobol takes with him in this mission a group of the best scientists on a Russian Typhoon nuclear submarine, modernized and equipped with the latest and the best technology.His crew has 170 people, and Typhoon was equipped with200 nuclear warheads and 20 ballistic missiles.

But he needs help from somebody who really knows the history of that time, the history of one of the most important events who had a huge impact on the whole world d:WW2. So, Sobol invites a well-known history professor specialized on pre-WW 2, Martin Richter.

Martin Richter was a man who likes peace and was totally against nuclear weapons. History was the passion of his life and he knew every detail of that dark period so this is why Sobol needed him. How he gets finally involved in this mission… I will let you discover this.

So the Typhoon submarine jumps in time and gets in 1938, a few years before the war. Things don’t go as planned, and the mission is sabotaged and there is a trader between them. One nuclear warhead is stolen and delivered to the Germans. Hitler makes plans how to use his new toy, to make Europe his, to fall to the Third Reich. History is in danger, The whole world is in danger. This is not what they wanted, Things can be worse than before.

But I think I will let you see by your self how the storyline develops. There is science, there is fiction, there is love, adventure..everything you look for can be found in Typhoon Time.

Will those brave people succeed their mission? Will Hitler finally make his dream come true? Did he win the WW2 thanks to the modern nuclear weapon?

I will not spoil it to you, let you discover by yourself.

” Time travel, politics, nazi, communists, drug runners and the Imperial Japanese. I really like the concept of the novel.”

Robert J. Sawyer, Hugo Award Winer, author of Quantum Night wrote about Typhoon Time:

” Ron S, Freidman explodes on the scene with a stunning debut. If Tom Clancy wrote science fiction, this is the novel he’d have written; If Larry Niven wrote military fiction, he’d be proud to call this book it’s own.”

My opinion

I will not tell you many things about the book just for you to know, the moment I received the ebook and I start reading, I couldn’t let it.

    i love time travel stories. That is why I have been a big fan of doctor who for a very long time. For those who don’t know it, you should really check that out too.

    This book you mentioned seems pretty good. I liked the idea that they brought a hisory professor with them. Most time travel stories involves the main characters pretty much being unprepared and going into a time period blinded. However, in this novel, the main characters knew what they were in for.

    Well, I guess not completely, considering how they had their nuclear weapons stolen. It sounds like a good read. I will definitely try it out. By the way, is the vocabulary difficult? Just curious.

    1. Cristina Boros (Post author)

      No, it isn’t. i am not a native English speaker and i was worried about this but is very easy to read and pleasant, believe me:)You will enjoy it.

      Yes is a very interesting adventure:) and I also loved the idea of the historian guy, he is very educated, a lot of knowledge about that period of time…

      Have a good read and tell me your opinion.

    Hi Cristina! I was pleasantly surprised by the nature of your site after clicking on it. Honestly I don’t think I’ve ever met someone who seems to be as interested in time travel as you. It’s quite interesting and unique!

    From what you wrote about this book, it sounds quite interesting. I like the idea of time travel myself, and of course the idea of going back to a period like WWII and trying to stop Hitler or something along those lines would be quite interesting to say the least.

    Your question at the end of the review is quite an interesting one as well. What would the world be like today if Hitler had won the war? Well, some people believe that the nazis didn’t actually lose the war, they just had to move. Move where? Well, America.

    There is little that is more unnerving than this idea, but if you notice there has been a much slower and gradual push toward fascism in different countries and even for global fascism, a vision Hitler himself had.

    So you see, your question is interesting because I don’t think that the war is over at all. If you take your time and truly look at what’s been happening in America and around the world, you will find there is some attempt to sabotage current systems. The question is, why?

    1. Cristina Boros (Post author)

      Maybe you are right, maybe the war is going on but in another way, a political and economical one. i don’t go so deep in this, if they moved to America or not , maybe you are right but i think Nazi are all over the world.

      I love the idea of time travel and everything related to it . So..let’s find in the end of the book, did Hitler won?:) I am sure you will love the book, is more than science fiction, is history, politics, science.

      Thanks for visiting my site and I am glad that you enjoyed reading.

      Have a good day,

    Hi Cristina, I just love the idea of time travel and enjoy watching films about it. A lot of TV show out now that deal with time travel, there a lot of fun and you get a look at our history.
    This book sounds like a great fit. Now If Hitler had won the war, well that is a scary thought, he would have continued to murder and wipe out a lot of races, he might even have accomplished his goal of making the world white.

    1. Cristina Boros (Post author)

      Hello Kim,

      I suppose you are right but you never know how the things could change. I think it is very scary indeed the idea of world ruled by Hitler But…who knows..lets see how the book ends. 

      I am sure you will enjoy the book and I am glad that you liked my review.When you read it let me know your opinion.

      Have a good day,

    I like time traveling stories and this one seems interesting. You definitely got my attention with your review. I am curious to know whether using the warhead had helped Hitler win the war. I am not familiar with this author’s work but I will be looking for this book.

    1. Cristina Boros (Post author)

      Ron Friedman is a writer that still has a lot to offer, it is a scientist, a short novel writer…he is a very talented man. The book is great and for sure you will love it. Worth reading 🙂 for sure.
      The end of the book I let is for a surprise. Read it and tell me your opinion.
      Have a good day,

    Hi Cristina, can I just say that you have just sold that book to me and I will certainly read it and let you know what my thoughts are about what the world would be like if Hitler had won the war.

    I have never really bothered reading things on time travel but the way you speak about the book has really made me curious to see what happens throughout and if it is a good or bad ending.

    Your post is really good and gives a good overall view about both the book and the author without giving anything away at all and I think a lot of people will be like myself and want to know what happens and how it ends.

    Thank you.

    1. Cristina Boros (Post author)

    1. Cristina Boros (Post author)
