      I was just not interested in the eras that he had his time patrol traveling to.

    • James Rickett says:

      One of Anderson's better efforts. if you like his time travel series, you'll enjoy this one.

      I found this to be a complex story, and rather dull.I've like everything else I've read by Poul Anderson, but this was a struggle to get through.

      Poul Anderson is one of my favorite authors; the Time Patrol one of my favorite sagas, ever since I first read a spanish translation of some of the first stories, I was hooked. That aside, I somehow ignored this book (a novel's worth of stories I hadn't read, building on the events and characters of the first compilation) even existed until very recently.On to the book itself: The stories are pretty fresh, the narrative style is good, although it does go off on expositional tangents ever so ofte [...]

      An interesting premise, however I didn't love the author's writing style. The story was a bit slow, with several side tangents that were unrelated. Tons of historical information that often bogged down the narrative. I did like how he handled some of the paradoxes of time travel so that they didn't get in the way of the story though. All in all, not compelling enough that I would seek out other books in the series.

      Lasciato anche prima della metà, a causa della gran confusione che mi ha fatto fare in poche decine di pagine. Il focus nel PoV è fin troppo dettagliato, le allusioni si sprecano e risultano troppo complesse per una lettrice con poca propensione alle trame ritorte come me.

      Good bookke "The Time Patrol" this was a collection of shorter stories (Novellas perhaps) but they were a fun read. Interesting ideas on paradox exploredI also like how the author gives the actual history of an event, then the "adjusted history" helps connect you to the story.

    • Anthony Faber says:

      Sequel to "Time Patrol", but it seems to be a collection of stories set in the same millieu. Old school stuff. The dialogue is a bit dated and, as always, he can't help interjecting his politics into things.

    • Thomas says:

      Good story line but hard to follow. I found it difficult to read whenever Anderson took us into the "Past". Not one of my favorites.

      Science Fiction

    • Elar says:

      Book is divided into separate stories which all weave together nice wholesome story. Time paradoxes and ancient landscapes are only some of the charms this book offers.

    • Larry Head says:

      As with every Poul Anderson book I read, this one was simply fascinating.

    • Donald Stevens says:

      He is one of the few modern Sci-Fi authors I have been able to get into. I need to expand my reading habits. Any good suggestions out there?
