No Other Story is a light-hearted fantasy book about the Cheeseman family and a time machine. They are trying to save their mother and wife, Olivia. They try to travel back in time to prevent her death, but they end up in Some Times instead. In Some Times, everything happens at once. The Cheesemans find dinosaurs and Egyptians living alongside Neanderthals and modern day New Yorkers. With the help of old friends and new friends, they attempt a daring escape from Some Times to save Olivia’s life.
The book is narrated by a character who does not appear in the story until partway through. He addresses the reader throughout the book and makes jokes, but it seems forced. I also had trouble getting into the story. I didn’t really care about the characters for a while, which is probably partly due to me not reading the first book. It is not essential to understanding this book, but it feels like parts of the story are missing. The book does resolve itself, though. There are no loose ends or cliffhangers. Overall, it is an okay book if you want a fun little read, but it is not the kind of book I would remember or reread.
