The Skin Map

"Had he but known that before the day was over he would discover the hidden dimensions of the universe, Kit might have been better prepared. At least, he would have brought an umbrella."
~The Skin Map, Stephen R. Lawhead
I recieved this book back in August from Tommy Nelson's Booksneeze program, which gives away books in exchange for free blog reviews. I only now got around to posting this review be honest, this book wasn't that good.
The opening sentence was incrediable, and the author did a good job of establishing location. Unfortunitely, a promising storyline got bogged down by the necessity of keeping track of five or six characters scattered thoughout the space and time of the Omniverse. I would have greatly appreciated a brief heading at the beginning of each section: "Egypt, x BC," or "England, 1600." Perhaps the next book in the series will better juggle the cast of characters.
