The background idea is nice, and the time traveling events are sometimes interesting.

The feeling, however, is that at a certain point the author was at loss for new ideas and the story became just a description of newspapers cut-outs. He read the newspaper text and built a story behind it. It would make sense if there was a strong story behind it, but most of the events described do not help to build up the plot.

I can only recommend this title to people not looking for a thrilling time travel adventure with sudden twists but to those who enjoy lengthy descriptions of places and don't mind to wait for the story to slowly develop.
