The Accidental Time Machine, started

I crawled into bed at about 9 PM last night and got started on Joe Haldeman’s The Accidental Time Machine, and right away I knew I was going to like it. I read the first 4 chapters (about 40 pages) before turning out the lights, and even then I was tempted to keep going on.

This morning, I continued reading on the train into work, and couldn’t put the book down, even when I got into my office. I’ve finally set it down, after getting through the first 10 chapters (90 pages) and I love it so far! No time-travel book has been so much fun since I read Heinlein’s The Door Into Summer! I don’t even want to put the book down now, but I have work to get done, so chapter 11 will have to wait for lunchtime.
