Do we make history or does history make us what we are? Do we allow our lives to be dictated by history or do we attempt to make our history the ‘new' future; do we have an impact in history, and the future, or do we allow ourselves to be the ‘victims' of the impact of history upon us, having the future shaped for us by others?
Imagine that there are people out there who will make us part of their history, and make their future our future; world leaders, artists, authors, and scientists. But what of the ordinary people - in the neighbourhood, or that person in their car, passing you on the road? Is that person harbouring secrets that you could not begin to comprehend? What if that person had secrets that they are not aware of; secrets that could have a major impact on the lives of everyone, everywhere, throughout the whole of time?

Had this book recommended so thought I would give it a go. I am thoroughly enjoying reading a very imaginative novel the only problem been as a self employed businessman I find myself reading when I really didn't ought to be.

Whilst enjoying the overall story, and themes, as a Christian, I was shocked by the blatant blasphemy in this book. By what authority does this writer have the right to suggest that God is a time travelling corrupt, and thoughtless, self-centred misogynist? Why spoil a good plot with these evil ideas? Consider other people's feelings before writing such blasphemous material. I am being generous with my score.

'Do we make history or does history make us what we are?' For Azarias Tor - history maker - timing is everything...... "Azarias Tor" written by the very imaginative Richard Abbott-Brailey and published by Austin Macauley is an original and unique take on time travelling with a hint of futuristic science fiction. I started reading this and found it so entertaining that I was on chapter 15 before I knew it. I guarantee the prologue will draw you in with intrigue! I particularly enjoyed the fact that it was set in the North East of England where I am born and bred - I could totally relate to places mentioned e.g. Angel of the North/Tyne Tunnel/The Monument in Newcastle etc. The scenes were so descriptive at times you would think you were with Azarias during his 'confused states of mind between sleep and wakefulness'. I did like and respect Azarias and truly felt his emotion and the grief of his tortured soul due to the loss of his devoted wife. The author has a very vivid imagination, incorporating a fantastic storyline with very diverse and interesting characters. He's written a very entertaining and cleverly plotted book mixed with a touch of humour that I know will be appreciated by readers of many genres. A well deserved 4 stars!
