Time is a hard set of rules, not a set of guidelines; it is set in stone, but, in an alternate reality, perhaps it can be changed. In this story, this premise is realized, and the result is nothing short of astounding. Humans aren't able to change time, if they could, disaster may ensue. In Ray Bradbury’s short story, “The Sound of Thunder,” the main character, Eckles, is murdered because of his own stupidity, the accumulated anger of his safari guide, and the effects he causes in this alternate timeline he arrived in. Eckels made very poor decisions while he was out on his safari, mistakes that would never be forgiven.

When I decided to read Body-Without-Soul by Kathryn Davis, I was in a place where I couldn't read the original to get some context. To be honest, I enjoyed this interpretation so I didn't need context as mush as I would have liked to have it. At first as I read, I underlined, the two "I think"s on the first page. The reason — seeing two "I think"s near each other distracted me, making not want to listen to the narrator because that are uncertain of the story that are writing about. However, continuing I pondered, "Who is this narrator?" I have a theory about the sorcerer Body-Without-Soul was telling the tale, but I'll admit to not having a concrete reason why I believed this theory.
Much like money, time is a human construct. Human beings created the concept of time to organize the events of their lives in a continuous, chronological order. Kurt Vonnegut’s novel, Slaughterhouse Five, depicts a different interpretation of time and the organization of events in Billy Pilgrim’s life.
