Itchiwan by J.J. Cunis is an extraordinary book. We follow the adventures and misadventures of four young boys, Amos, Vernon, Brett, and Timmy. The four discover a hole in the ground that leads to a translucent orb. Amos is the first to enter and sees the many connecting holes inside that lead to other points in time. This appears to be a time machine and the boys use it to explore. Amos and Timmy go into the hole alone and come back over twenty years later, but to them, it was merely a couple of hours. The Pukwadgees are also loose. They are four miniature braves looking to destroy the two boys and kill everything in sight as they wreak havoc in the town of New Seabury. In planning to go back, can they change the past by changing the future? Will the boys be able to stop the Pukwadgees before they kill any more innocent people?
Reading Itchiwan by J.J. Cunis was one wild ride. I could not put the book down and, in all honesty, could see this as a movie. The chaos caused by the Pukwadgees was immeasurable and so very final, but it is up to our four boys to stop them. Seeing how they change the future by manipulating the past was a twist I didn’t expect but loved. I would have done the same in that regard, so the characters are very relatable. I loved how Timmy changed from a timid little boy into the man he would become and how each member of the team turned their lives around with the knowledge they brought back. This was a non-stop thrill journey with an assault on all your senses. The characters were well-conceived and the story entertaining. Highly recommended for a more mature audience.
