I am amazed at the difference in readability of the various Nebula Award winners. Some are fantastic. Some are mediocre. This is the first one I have run across that I simply cannot finish. It is just plain too boring. I stopped at about 40%, even though I generally try to hit 50% before I give up. I cannot figure out what the story is. There is really only one character who is not well developed despite the author forcing us to jump from his youth to his present (which is in the past) over and over again. Both his childhood and his adulthood are without much interest or story line.
If I can't finish a book, I always give it one star. In this case, I wish it were possible to give it -1.
It is often very intense, filled with very unusual passages that made me wonder what was really happening, if it was all a dream or real, and that is part of the intrigue leading up to the satisfying conclusion.
This is not your typical time travel novel, where a person goes back in time to change the future. In fact, for most of the novel, the time travel seemed incidental to the story, odd as that may sound, because this novel is about love and acceptance within the family unit and crosses the most unusual of boundaries, sometimes in shocking unexpected ways.
I have to admit, I did not see where this one was going but I'm happy I went along for the adventure. Well written, beautifully structured and well worth the time.

Put simply, you would most likely not go wrong in purchasing this book.
It is a work of substantive art, thought shamefully underrated and unappreciated.
This is a great time travel SF. The theme is certainly not new, but Michael Bishop has created here a very unique and interesting main character, Joshua Kampa. Read morePublished on July 21, 2007 by Amazon Customer
I saw some glowing reviews for this book so I tried reading it. I got 30 or 40 pages into it and I decided there were too many good SF books I could be reading instead. Read morePublished on December 29, 2006 by D. Keeler
