In 2003: The Time-Loop Device by David Cornish, Nolan Emerson serves as the professor of physics at Geneva University, but also as the lead scientist of CERN. When out of the classroom, the radical professor conducts experiments on black holes, among other things, in pursuit of time travel. His research soon produces results, but to prove that his device can indeed cross time, he journeys to 2003 in a bid to prevent the tragedy of the space shuttle Columbia. Nolan soon learns that while he can bend time, he cannot control its flow. The unforeseen repercussions of his actions echo from the past to the present. What was is no more, and what is continues to rewrite itself. Will Nolan conquer time or will the present ripple out of control?
David Cornish's 2003: The Time-Loop Device has an entertaining and structured plot. I liked that Cornish made Nolan’s unique lectures to his class of interested learners the focus of the book early on, as I got to know more about his character this way. The later stages were equally well-written and fun to read. The science bits and concepts were also interesting and thankfully weren't too difficult to comprehend. David explained all the 'magic' of science in a practical manner. The writing was excellent and the character dialogue really simulated actual conversation. Overall, this is a novel I recommend to sci-fi lovers. My overall impression is of a well-written and polished book.
