What an adventure through time, society and personal self. The book is a conversation between one man who has been displaced in time, with the three family members who find him in this new time. The explanations of the changes in society are very interesting in a lot of cases and very frightening in others. I love the perspective of corporations, banks and religion in the new utopian world Mr. West finds himself in. However, the living, social and sexist perspectives were a little more than I can stomach. However, it is always good to hear both sides of an argument and the author definitely lays them out very thoroughly. A thought provoking and entertaining book, I can't believe how long ago it was written and it is still a delightful read. The author even manages to add a sweet and not pathetic love story to the mix, which a surprising and enjoyable side line.
