    2. In my experience the best science fiction presents the reader with a modified reality in order to expose and explore aspects of human nature in starker relief than an unmodified, real life setting, would allow. “The Realignment Case” does exactly this.Imagine that in today’s world people have created a device that, while not allowing time travel, enables people to effect small changes on a molecular level on objects that existed in the not too distant past. Thus, perhaps, a promotional bro [...]

    4.

Along with his employer and mentor Winter, it is Dan's job to defend the status quo.The first half of the book develops the characters and the premise of the book.

    6. The Realignment Case by R J Dearden is a thought provoking book. It is a novel built around the concept of time travel and even though all the while you are aware that this is pure fiction it doesn’t stop you thinking ‘what if that really could happen’I have to say that this is not really the type of fiction I would ordinarily read. However, that said, it certainly held my interest from beginning to end. The main character is Daniel Athley who is a solicitor who has managed to upset one of [...]

    9. More of a thriller than science fiction, although it's definitely both. All in all, it reads quickly and keeps the reader wondering where it's all going. This same feature also makes it seems to feel redundant at timesI do believe there are many readers that will enjoy the story, and I'm curious to see what else the author has written or will write.

    10. Sci-fi is not the usual genre I choose to read but the description of the storyline and the idea of time-travel made me want to read The Realignment case anyway. I have to say I'm glad I did so! It’s a well written, thought provoking story with lots of twists and turns. It’s a great read and I definitely recommend it!

    11. The story is brilliant however for me i found that the story flitted around too much and i was never sure if we were in the past, present or viewing future events. A film would be fantastic and i would recommend this book to others but for me it was a bit hard going in parts.
