Overview

Fifty-five million years ago, a sudden burst of lightning frightened a herd of small prehistoric horses. In the ensuing panic, one of the horses, a five-year-old mare no bigger than a fox terrier, fell into a lake and drowned.

On June 23, 1975, in Austin, Texas, a drop of oil combusted in a car engine. This tiny explosion happened just as the Ford Pinto, driven by a one-armed hitchhiker named Jimmy, pulled into the parking lot of the Timber Creek Apartments, home to the young woman in the passenger’s seat, a twenty-two-year-old biology student named Clarissa Sanders.

The lyrical and fantastical story of how these two seemingly unrelated events are actually connected, Machine is a daring mix of fact and fiction, of science and art.

That this pile of garbage ever managed to get published. Mr. Adolphsen is more interested in showing how well read HE is and how much knowlege HE has than he is in telling a story. It's only 45 pages long and I could not make it past the first 20 he digresses from the story so much. For example; in the tale of the little prehistoric horse he stops in the middle of it to talk about how and who gave the horse it's name and why it's wrongly named. WHO CARES! TELL THE STORY!! Next he goes off on some medical tangent making sure he uses lots and lots of technical jargon so we can all know how intelligent he is. I'm not a doctor researching symptoms for a sick patient so I don't care! And if I was I certainly would not be reading this for answers. No, this book is nothing but a elitist wanking on the page to show the world how smart he thinks he is. Maybe this is the current rage of literature in Denmark, if so I feel sorry for them. I have to wonder why MP publishing felt this mind raper needed to be translated. The unlucky person that did it that actually HAD to read the whole thing. Poor slob. All I can say is that I'm glad I got the thing when it was on the free list because it's not worth 3 bucks.
