The book Invictus by Ryan Graudin was a fairly unique take on the idea of time travel.  What possibly sets it apart the most is that the main character isn't the “good guy” necessarily.  In a lot of books, the main character tries their best to have perfect morals, and this book took a break from that.  Ryan Graudin also didn't overcomplicate time travel like most all other sci fi books and movies do. He addressed the issue of any differences in the past causing massive changes in the future, but it was ignored except for when it added to the plot. There were some good plot twists that were unexpected as well, which made it more interesting. The book was easy to read, the style of the writing was well presented, and the characters were relatable, seeming almost like real people. Overall the book was a good read.
