>Fiction: “How to Live Safely in a Science Fictional Universe”

This book by Charles Yu had an interesting premise: the narrator is a time machine repairman – he helps people who rent time machines and get stuck somewhere in time. The book had some funny moments at the start – like when he has to rescue Linus Skywalker (yes, that Skywalker) and hears complains about the famous dad.

However, the problem with the book was that the plot was quite disjointed with many different ideas haphazardly thrown in, without any logical connection. I finished the book – but I stopped caring about the main character about halfway through.
