The Lost Family Robinson is a work of fiction in the science fiction, historical adventure, and family drama subgenres. It is best suited to the general adult reading audience. Penned by author Alan Priest, this thrilling and imaginative tale of time travel and family dynamics takes us on a journey of self-discovery. When the Robinson brothers and their families find themselves thrust into Northern Nevada's past, they must confront not only the challenges of time travel but also their own unresolved issues with each other.
Author Alan Priest has crafted a delightful journey through time and family relationships that delivers on all fronts for an emotionally deep and conceptually engaging tale. The characters are distinct and well-developed, each with their quirks and personalities that add depth to the story. Fred, Ernie, Jack, and Will bring their unique qualities to the narrative, and their interactions, filled with humor and conflict, are crafted with meticulous attention to dialogue, individual voice, and personality. The time travel aspect is cleverly woven into the plot, creating both opportunities and obstacles for the characters, but it also holds its own against hard sci-fi logic and makes good sense in the internal lore of the story. The author balances the excitement of the time-travel adventure with the exploration of family dynamics and personal growth to offer a multi-layered plot, all of which is laced with gorgeously cinematic descriptions of the past, present, and future. Overall, The Lost Family Robinson is a fun and thought-provoking novel that explores the complexities of family relationships and the unexpected challenges of time travel, and I would certainly recommend it to science fiction fans everywhere.
