Backtracked was a good book. I generally liked it, but I was a little confused by some of Laterella's(the main character) decisions.

Also I was confused with who some of the characters were at some points. Laterella goes to three different time periods in this book, and he meets new people in each era, so there are a lot of characters/5. Once I began "Backtracked", I could not put the book down.

This is a carefully researched novel with richly drawn charachters. There is a compelling human story which unfolds within panoramic settings of New York City's dynamic and dramatic history. 5/5(7). Backtracked is a bit dark but utterly captivating.

I especially enjoyed the way the history came to life, and the way de Alcantara made the reader feel present. Some of the subway history made me remember my early travels on some of those subways that no longer exist or no longer exist in the same way.

All in all, the book is amazingly 5/5(7). Get this from a library. Backtracked.
