This was just a fun book, plain and simple, and a great read. I am a big fan of time-travel stories. Although not quite as much fun as Joe Haldeman’s “The Accidental Time Machine”, the story itself was enjoyable. The character’s romp through time is very much the kind of journey I’d want to take if I had access to a time machine. There were clever uses of time-travel paradoxes throughout the story, and it was fun feeling like I was getting to meet famous people from history. As far as time travel stories go, it was not on par with Robert Silverberg’s “Up the Line”, but it was a lot of fun (a la Heinlein) and I’d recommend it to fans of time travel science fiction.
