My first impression of this novel is how it made me feel as a reader. It is rare that I experience both the story and the reading of the story as distinct elements of the experience. I found myself "floating above the narrative," feeling distant but still completely immersed in the events. The feel of it reminded me of Phillip K. Dick's "Do Androids Dream Of Electric Sheep" - the stories are completely different but they felt the same to me. I quite enjoyed the story - the summation of which I shall leave to other reviewers - and I think it should appeal to fans of classic sci-fi, time travel stories, steampunk, adventure tales, or mysteries. I was struck by the fact that the story itself would easily hold up to an immediate second reading; the structure of the tale and the way the elements are revealed mean that a second reading would actually be a different experience from the first (much as a second viewing of The Sixth Sense would be.) I was delighted at the length of the book and found the conclusion to come both right on time and much sooner than I desired! I look forward to reading other "Elastic Limit" books!
Imagine going back in time to where cavemen meet nomads who meet clans from the medieval period and you don't age. Along the way the reader finds love, deceit, and death. Not bad, especially when the ending is unexpected. The writing is easy to read and there is enough changes within each chapter to keep you moving along nicely.
