    A roller coaster ride of a book

    Holy cow, what a roller coaster ride of a book! You've got time travel, magic, science fiction, Egyptian mythology, world-conquering villains and more all wrapped up into 387 pages of almost non-stop action. I almost put the book down (about 20 pages from the second part, it turns out) because Powers takes no time in throwing us into his story; in fact, I felt that Doyle ended up being convinced far too quickly of the possibility of time travel and felt like maybe Powers was just going to keep that kind of pace up through the rest of book. And while the pace really never does let up, it just seemed that he was taking forever to get all of his characters into place, and I was just so desperate for the story to finally move along that I was growing quickly impatient and was ready to walk away from the whole thing. A friend, thankfully, convinced me to stick with it, and I'm glad that I did.

    The second part of the book finally starts to take the significant number of threads that Powers started, and begins to weave them together into a fine web of a story that completely caught me up in its telling. I do think that the second part suffered from a little excess story telling again, but it was all necessary to bring the story and all of its characters together. The way that Powers worked so many characters and plot threads into one book, and managed to tie them all together and tie them up nicely into one big package is amazing. There is just so much that goes on in this book!

    Even when I was working my through the parts of the book that I found a little tedious, I still felt that Powers' world and characters were completely tangible. His writing had an easy, relaxed flow to it that made the book really accessible and easy to get into. All in all, a really fantastic tale that I'm glad that I stuck with.

    Time Paradox Resolved and Created

    You will have to read the book to understand the headline. Tim Powers has prepared a master work of historical fiction, combining fantasy, science fiction, magic and horror into a single well constructed story. He also has a talent for constructing supernatural characters and entitities and making them entirely real to those among his main characters who believe and invisible or unimaginable for the rest. His site research and descriptions of people and places are so good that the reader can easily place himself in the scene, walking down the same streets, alleyways and staircases into the dark unknown. I recommend all of his works written since this title and am waiting for an imaginative producer to attempt to develop one of Powers' novels into a decent film. Buy two copies at a time - one to read and collect and the second to give away to like-minded friends.

    Good fun

    Great book about a guy stranded back in time. Characters are interesting and often strange. It takes place in historical context but some of the characters and situations border on Stephen King.

    Stop: GET THIS BOOK

    This was the first of Powers' works that I read and it made a fan out of me. I read it twice and I never read anything twice. I enjoyed it as much the second time as I did the first. The style is fast paced and very clean and every string of the plot is neatly tied up somewhere, somehow. If you become a Powers fan like I did you will become familiar with his uncanny ability to imbue mundane items with captivating magic and to do it in such a way that it is believable and gritty. Go from this work to 'The Stress of Her Regard.' From there you're on your own. Enjoy.

    Excellent Novel!!!

    The story is awesome! I couldn't put it down! It was like, Mission Impossible or James Bond meets The Time Machine meets The Mummy. Just when I thought I knew exactly what was going on, KABOOM, the scene changed and I was tossed into an entirely different world. And it would be terrible of me to forget the charachters! I swear, the charachters are so unique! I read this book effortlessly in a weekend, it was just that good!

    An AWESOME read. Tim Powers is so amazing. 
    This was the first of his books that I've read. I instantly became hooked by Brendan Doyle, who reminded me somewhat of Robert Langdon in the Da Vinci Code. I loved the historical figures, and how the point of view switched from Doyle to the antagonists. It was a little of a slow start, but as soon as there was action, it didn't stop! I felt genuine emotions for the characters, and the plot was one that only Tim Powers could have pulled off with his writing skills. Overall, a great read!

    After reading this I've decided that Tim Powers must have been experimenting with hallucinogens.  This piece of garbage made absolutely no sense!  And he won the phillip k dick award for this?  Three days to never was phenominal however after this novel I will not be reading another. Mr. Powers acid is a bad bad thing!  This was a total waste of time and effort!  I hope your other forays weren't as bad as this bomb!

    This is a book that generates curiosity, moves along at high speed, fills the imagination with wonder and provides great enjoyment to the reader. 

    The Author creates all the characters in such a compelling way, even those that play a supporting role that the reader finds themselves wanting more, unfortunately this never comes. A tantalizing amount of time is spent with each of the character, but it is never enough; this leaves the reading feeling they have spent barely enough time with each of them before they are gone. There were simply never enough of these characters, and it left me feeling cheated, and wanting more of them. 

    One of the problems I found with this novel, and I am not sure if it was intentional on the part of the Author, was there is so much packed into a mere 380 pages.  In this small space the reader encounters Beggar's guilds, Egyptian wizards, Romantic poets and business magnates; prize fighters mix with cross dressing vengeance seekers, mad clowns, body snatchers, fire elementals and gypsies.  They are subject to time slips that bounce them from 1810 to 1983 to 1660 and back into the 1800’s at such a pace that I felt I needed motion sickness pills to get me through but, despite all this jumping the Author manages to keep the plot following a linear path of cause and effect.  On the negative side of all this time jumping there are huge gaps; the story moves on too quickly leaving the reader wanting more of the unfulfilled promise of sweeping and epic adventures.  All of this is, however, extremely effective.  It makes the reader want to continue through the novel, joining in with the good old fashioned chases.  It is also the downfall of this piece of writing.

    Being left wanting more can be a good thing, particularly with this kind of high fantasy and fast paced adventure read but, in the case of this novel I found it to be extremely frustrating.  To counter this feeling of frustration one of two things could have been done by the Author; either increase the story to match the scale of the book or reduce the epic scale of the book itself, with either of these alterations this book could have become so much more than it is, an entertaining sci-fi fantasy adventure.
    In the end this novel is far more time travel than Steampunk and leaves the reader feeling more than a little short-changed and frustrated.  Regardless of these shortcomings, reading this book is not a waste of time and I would recommend it to those lovers of the time travel genre and also people who enjoy a good old fashioned adventure story.

    Liked the book right up the end

    I was really enjoying the story up to the end. The ending seemed a little contrived and forced and didn't have the same flow as the rest of the book. Still a good read but I thought the ending could've been tied up a little better.

    I loved this book until the very last chapter, then I felt like the author added a twist just to shock the reader and provide some added (and honestly unneeded) drama.

    This book is well written, entertaining but in the end I was sort of let down.
