Time travel! Visit exotic places!
Ann Decker has no family, no close friends, no ties holding her to her own time & place. She’s the perfect candidate for a time-travel corporation (how cool is that idea) who needs more travelers.
- Visiting Crete and watching a bull dance.
- Realizing you don’t have to make major changes – just move a lamp to the other side of the room and the ripples will spread
- What you know, isn’t so.
- People die. You can’t (always) bring them back to an earlier time.
- There’s an impossible thing that happens in the book, which is impossible by the stories physics. It is explained much later, after I already decided the book is not internally consistent.
- The Author Message comes through with such a heavy hand that it spoiled the story-line.
The Double Take:
- Meeting a fellow time traveler, then meeting them again when they hadn’t met you yet (My brain twisted into a pretzel)
- The Time Travelers have a new vocabulary for here-now and there-then.
- The Travel Corp is not entirely altruistic. Oh, I should have seen it coming, but I didn’t.
