Hm. An interesting story. A bit strange in places; does everyone have analogs and only some people realise it, or do only some people have analogs and some people can see it?

The characterisation was good; the time-hopping was distracting, but managed well. There was very little foreshadowing of the dangers; they were, largely, pretty much there-and-gone.

All in all, a good story.

I liked the time-hopping. In most stories, the time line is either the past or the present or the future. It's nice to see all of them together in one story, especially the near future.

A great idea for a story; the analog idea has a lot of potential for exploration and the two main/analog characters certainly possess interesting personalities. The story read more like an outline for a much larger work (a large novel) that would explore the analog concept and the two main/analog characters with more depth. I hope to see this longer version soon!
