Nowhere as funny as his Thunderbolt Kid, but still a pretty good read about his travels in Europe. Europe has changed a lot since he did his trip, but there are still truths in this book.
I cannot remember if I ever read a book which made me laugh so hard. I mean, laugh out-loud into tears funny.
There is plenty of his story I could relate to growing up in small-town Vacaville in the mid-1960’s.
Well written, easy to read, interesting subjects.
Not all that Science Fiction nor a great story. Mostly a Greek Island travel log.
OK good hard science fiction with space ships battles. Sometime not enough believeable as he forgets about how gravity works in space.
Pretty good hard science fiction until the hero-nerd goes to the alien’s planet and he becomes a hero-hero.
Sadly too true. And now what.
A bit too kiddie for me, but OK SF.
Book one of A Time Odyssey. Cannot wait for the next in the series.
Tried to re-read this book after reading it as a teenager. To slow and lots of the SF was no longer believable.
Only read because it is set in Cote Azur and is current day. Carol is way to breathless on how cool the Cote Azur is. It is just a normal place with a nice climate, sea and mountains nearby. and people living and working there.
A bit slow for me and not so belieable.
A bit repetitive towards the end, but very believable.
Based in Torino, Italy so a nice travelog. Moved quickly.
Wonderfull description of life in a small town in the south in the 1960’s. Worth a read just for this. But it is a Grisham book, so it moves and is hard to put down.
I must the only non-Catholic person on the planet, beside this guy, who thinks this book was total crap and a waste of time.
The premise, and the one sex seen, was interesting. I found the the way it was presented totally contrived and predicable. The characters could not have been any less depth.
The cyborg like integration of hard and wet memories is very cool. The SF world created would be a cool one to live in and not too far fetched. The political/social aspects of the world is way too negative for me.
The story moves at a good pace.
